Good news!I join others in being excited and hopeful about good things and positive developments taking place in Lawrence County. I will attempt to mention several of them.
The potential of peanut farming in Lawrence County has gotten considerable attention in recent months. Walter Rice, a farmer from College Station, Tenn., successfully produced a peanut crop in the area last year. A retired consultant for a peanut company recently met with local farmers to discuss peanut production, and peanut shelling and processing companies have shown interest in the county's farmland for peanut production.
