Mississippi on the Menu

Mississippi Catfish

March is National Peanut Month! Peanuts are not only good for family food plans but they brought in $52 million dollars to our state’s economy in 2012. We harvested 187.2 million pounds of peanuts grown on 48,000 acres in Mississippi last year. So whether you like roasted peanuts, boiled peanuts, or peanut butter, remember Mississippi farm families love growing peanuts for our families and yours!
