Donations, 2017

The Peanut Factory is grateful to all supporters beginning in 2012. 2017 included a donation of one of the original chairs used in the peanut tower. This was given to us by a nearby resident, whose relative worked at the mill for many years. Workers were stationed in the tower to oversee the movement of the peanuts; if they got caught up in the ‘drop downs,’ then the workers would use a long pole to clear out the congestion so the peanuts could continue moving to whatever floor they were supposed to go — to be sorted, shelled, etc.
