As peanut acreage continues to spread across the Delta, the Clint Williams Co.’s Clarksdale, Miss., facility processed 11,000 acres of peanuts in its first year of operation. Glen Moore, buying point manager, oversees a 26,000-ton storage warehouse at the Clarksdale site, in addition to 100 drying trailers. After drying, Moore ships the peanuts to Madill, Okla., where they are further processed for candy and peanut butter.
