Posted by romeethredge on August 23, 2014

Last month we had the honor to attend the Southern Peanut Growers Conference in Panama City Beach, FL where Seminole County had  winners in the 2013 Georgia Peanut Achievement Club.  This club represents the highest yielding peanut growers in the state in four districts.

Eddie Miller Jr. had the highest yield in his acreage category in our district with 6,949 pounds on 588 acres. What a great peanut yield!

Here’s Eddie and I and our wives, Suzanne and Karen.
