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!
