Peanut Buying, Drying and Grading
Coastal AgroBusiness appreciates the value that peanut farming brings to eastern North Carolina’s agricultural economy. We have invested significant resources to support a thriving peanut industry. Peanut farming is important for our regional economy because of its profitability as well as the benefits derived as a crop rotation alternative.
Since 1999, we are proud to be a commissioned agent for Birdsong Peanuts based in Suffolk, Virginia. Birdsong is one of the largest peanut shellers in the US and markets peanuts to customers throughout the world.
With our extensive fleet of 104 peanut drying trailers and 38 dryers, we have the capacity to operate non-stop during harvest time. Our efficient management works tirelessly to achieve fast turn-around of every truckload and consequently ensures timely completion of our customers’ harvest.
Our peanut buying services include:
- Offering peanut contracts to growers in the winter
- Supplying the latest varieties of Birdsong seed to growers in the spring
- Receiving, custom cleaning and drying, and USDA grading during the fall harvest
