Triple D Farms began growing peanuts in Scott County, Mo., in 2015 as an alternative to their regular crops – cotton, soybean and corn.

The partners turned a trial peanut crop into profitable production in a short time. Their sandy soil and good irrigation make raising peanuts in the Sikeston area an excellent rotation for their operation at large.

The fifth-generation farm is currently almost 9,000 acres with roughly 900 acres of that in high oleic peanuts. The farm is an all-in operation with no major decisions resting on one person and all five partners having a say in what goes on in the process.

Their yields average about three tons to the acre and the grades are good, in the mid-70s.

They have helped to establish a trend in the Missouri Bootheel as more growers in their area are growing peanuts. A processing plant with local buying points have been built in the area to support the crop.
