Peanuts grow in the shell, in the ground and are harvested in the fall. The farmer digs up the rows of plants, usually by machine. After they dry for a few days in the field, a combine comes and removes the peanuts from the rest of the plant. After further cleaning, unshelled peanuts are ready to sell. Shelled peanuts require additional processing. We sell only tasty bulk peanuts at reasonable, bulk pricing, which is further enhanced by the fact that there is no sales tax!

Why feed bulk peanuts to elephants?
Peanuts are a treat most elephants would not normally eat in the wild. The practice of offering peanuts to elephants in the zoo or circus is more a matter of convenience to humans than to the elephant. However, feeding a peanut to an elephant is a wonderful way to showcase the prehensile capabilities of the elephant's trunk, as the elephant can pick up an individual peanut with the tip of its trunk.
