- Peanuts are harvested from September- November

- Recommendations on the introduction of peanuts to infants have recently changed. Click here to watch Sherry’s Facebook Live on this topic.
Peanut Butter can be used for so much more than peanut butter and jelly sandwiches – which the average child will eat more than 1,500 of before graduating high school!
