About

Actually a legume not a nut, Raw Valencia Peanuts make for one way popular sprout! We got thousands of folks hooked on these over our years at the Dane County Farmer's Market in Madison, Wisconsin (where we sold sprouts every Saturday from April-November for 10 years). In our opinion, Peanuts are best when they put out only a bulge at their tip (germ), not a big root, but you can decide for yourself (assuming that you can keep from eating them long enough to let them grow).

Notes
The future of organic peanuts is seriously in doubt.  Because of this we are holding what peanuts we still have so that we may continue to offer our San Francisco Mix  and Madison Market Mix  as long as possible. The main supplier of organic peanuts has shut down due to the FDA's heavy handed treatment.  Do some web searches to educate yourself, but keep in mind that we are talking about agriculture here.  Our food is grown in soil.  In nature.  We want real food!  Organic food!  If the FDA had its way we would all eat food so processed, so cooked, that there would be no nutrition in it - but then we'd all need drugs - which would be wonderful to them and their drug company buddies.  Take a look at who runs the FDA .

Read about the organic peanut situation here  and pray for the family farmers who are suffering needlessly. 
Old News:
Our New Mexico farmer has produced another wonderful crop of very tasty valencia peanuts. They are always great, but I had to give them a shout out for their great work. Their 2011 crop was devastated by drought, so Peanuts were VERY hard to come by in 2012 - and their price skyrocketed! Every peanut product we buy is now more expensive - - it's supply and demand, as you know. Sadly 2012 was an even worse growing season for the organic peanut farmers we have long relied upon and they have had other issues that have made it almost impossible to meet demand for their Peanuts. We couldn't be happier to have their great product back - and in good supply. Sadly the price didn't come back down, but we've gotten used to that reality over the years, as much as we wish we didn't have to.

  • Yummy peanut sprouts
    My husband and I just love peanut sprouts. We eat them as a snack all by themselves, and also have tried them in a salad, beef stew, and chicken stir-fry. They are crunchy and taste terrific. BTW, I like to add some sea salt to the soak water. They still sprout, and they taste even better.
