Delta Peanut To Spend $70 Million On First Sheller In Arkansas, Will Employ 130

Farmers began to reintroduce peanuts into sandy, row crop fields in several parts of Northeast Arkansas in 2010. Through the years, the number of acres has steadily grown and that has led Delta Peanut to build the first peanut sheller in Arkansas.

Delta Peanut is building a $70 million facility on a 71-acre swath inside the Craighead County Technology Park.

It’s expected to be operational by the time the peanut harvest begins.       MORE
