We stopped here not knowing what to expect. The Peanut commission is a great place to learn about how peanuts are grown, harvested and processed. The grounds are quite as well. There's a pond and a park-like area to stop and relax.

There had been an electrical outage in the area just before our visit so the audio-visual presentations were not working, but the 2 ladies at the counter were warm and welcoming. We received a personal tour of the facilities, which are very modern and impressive.
