Nuts Day

For Nuts Day, we talk to Shelly Nutt, the Executive Director of the Texas Peanut Producers Board.

The Texas Peanut Producers Board is the state's oldest agricultural commodity board. With the foresight to recognize a need for Texas peanut research, market development, education and promotion, Texas peanut producers voted in 1969 to establish a $1 per net ton voluntary checkoff based on farmer stock basis. In 1990, growers voted to increase the checkoff to $2 per net ton.

Since its inception, TPPB has grown from nine to 12 directors, representing peanut farmers from across the state of Texas.

TPPB is headquartered in Lubbock, Texas,and is served by a five person staff. PEANUTS!
