Our farmers in Australia have had a pretty tough time of late, due to some nasty weather which in turn has impacted our overall peanut supply.

We love our Australian farmers, we love our visits- and theirs too.
But with necessity being the mother of invention, we had to scour every corner of the globe to find a peanut just as delicious to fill in for a while.

What we found wasn't just a quick fill-in.
But an incredible peanut, grown by spectacular people- worthy of a chapter in this story of ours.

Pic quickly packed up his bags and flew to the birthplace of our civilization.  

Africa.
The home of lions, pyramids, and as it turns out- our new peanut butter growers.

In Zambia, peanuts have been a staple crop for decades, mostly by grown by women and sold at the local markets to supplement their income.

As a result of using and reusing outdated seed- the crops typically produce a low yield making it impossible to invest in improved seed, irrigation, and fertilizer- continuing a cycle of small crops with small returns.

That was until Canon Garth came along.

With a background in seed development and export - they recognized the social impact possible by working with these tiny growers; supplying world-class seeds, leasing them land, machinery, and providing expert training before purchasing the peanuts back from the farmers to export. 

Giving small holdings an international business, and us; really good peanuts.

So what does this mean?

It means that while Australia is having a shortage of peanuts, you don’t have to experience a shortage of our peanut butter.

For the next while, you’ll have a few Zambian peanuts cuddled up with the Australian ones in your jar.
It’s nice, they get along well - as we all should.

Does it taste different?

You might not notice a difference as it’s still the same variety as our Australian ones, but if you do; that’s fine.
It’s a different peanut - one that brings us new characters in our story, and you, a new peanut butter. 

One that’s just as spectacular and flavourful as before.
