Coastal Growers: 197 Farmers Share Ownership in The Nation’s Newest Peanut Shelling Facility

Posted On April 4, 2022

Farmers from Mississippi, Georgia, and Alabama bring their peanuts to Atmore, Alabama and sell them to Coastal Growers, LLC run by Dirk Lindsey. Dirk’s been in the peanut industry for a long time, traveling the world consulting on growing, harvesting, and shelling peanuts. He now makes his home in Alabama (his final stop, he says) to oversee the new facility in Atmore. The farmers also have ownership in the facility, keeping the profits in their communities. It’s a great story of many numbers of banks, influencers, and federal agencies pulling together to make it happen.
