The Peanut Patch in Yuma, AZ

IMG_3339.JPG

The Peanut Patch in Yuma, Arizona has a free tour @ 10 on Tues & Fridays. The tour meets at the store. Then, moves into a bigger building. The owner tells the story of the peanut patch, the different types of peanuts, how the peanuts are grown, how fresh peanut butter is made & more.

The peanuts are not grown in Yuma they are shipped in from other states. Because of the white fly epidemic in the 1990’s Yuma is unable to grow peanuts. I was surprised that a peanut is not a nut but a vegetable.

Also, a walk thru of the kitchen is included with samples of several items packaged at the store.

 Overall, it was a nice tour.

Like most food factory tours afterward I’m motivated to buy stuff 🙂 Yummy!

Happy RVing!

  1. Of course I’m familiar with Georgia peanuts, and I know there are also Virginia peanuts. When I saw the title of this post my first thought was “I didn’t know they grew peanuts in Arizona.” Now I know they don’t! I wonder if they have boiled peanuts in Arizona???

  2. We sure like peanuts at this house. I’ll be sure to add this to our list of things to do in Yuma. Did you show a photo of peanut brittle-we’d probably buy way too much of that delicious treat!
