About Peanuts: Shelling

The farmer stock comes to us to be cleaned, graded, sized and prepared for use as a final product. Most shellers simply sell raw peanuts to food manufacturers. However, we at Hampton Farms use our peanuts and ensure they become the best tasting peanut products possible: Grown, harvested, roasted and packed proudly right here in the United States.

Harvesting takes place in the fall each year. Depending on the weather each season, farmers will start the harvest sometime in September and generally, the entire crop is “in the barn” by the end of October. The harvest is a two-step process.
