Virginia is for Peanuts

Virginia is for Peanuts

Laura Beth Peters and Lainie Stubblefield

On today’s episode, we got to speak with Marshall Rabil, of Virginia-based, female and family-owned Hubbard Peanut Company, aka HUBS. Many years ago, in the small Virginia crossroads village of Sedley, Dot Hubbard developed a unique way to cook the Virginia peanuts grown on her father's farm. She diligently used only the finest peanuts from the local harvest. Today, Dot's recipe for using only the best remains unchanged. Sedley is pretty close to the NC border - directly east of Virginia Beach. Virginia has become well-known for its gourmet peanuts, with farmers in the southeastern portion of the state producing millions of pounds each year. The legume, commonly referred to as a nut, is enjoyed raw or boiled. The Virginia Peanuts stands out from the other peanut varieties in both size and taste; they are the largest peanut, are more flavorful than the three other varieties, and have a characteristic crunch when eaten. Virginia Peanuts are commonly called the “Ballpark Peanut” because they are the peanut variety sold at baseball games across the country. Find Hubs Peanuts: https://www.hubspeanuts.com
