For years I’ve worked in Virginia making and selling peanuts and it’s a blessing to really love your work. Over the years I’ve been asked a lot of questions so I thought I’d try and post as many of the answers as I could. If you need to know something that is not on the site, shoot me an email and ask away. Also let me know if it is okay to post your question (I won’t post your private information or full name).
