Peanut Farmer Spotlight: Josh Davis of Chipley, Florida

ByFPPA June 25, 2018

Today’s Peanut Farmer Spotlight is Josh Davis of Chipley, Florida. Josh has been farming peanuts for 16 years and his favorite part of being a peanut farmer is picking them. When asked what his favorite way to eat peanuts was, Josh responded with “peanut butter straight out of the jar”.

We asked Josh what has been the most challenging part of peanut farming, and he responded with “This year getting them planted…sometimes it may be planting, spraying, picking, or getting the right price for them. Josh quoted his father, Sonny Davis, by saying that his dad recently used “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get” from Forrest Gump to describe peanut farming this year.

Josh was asked for his prediction for this year’s peanut crop and he explained, “Well we’re always optimistic to having a really good year, we’re always positive…we’re optimistic for an exceptional year…maybe”.

We had so much fun visiting with Josh in the peanut field! Keep an eye out for our next Peanut Farmer Spotlight to be posted on our page in the upcoming weeks! 🥜🌱☀
