Hold onto your hats, folks, because Hubs has done the unthinkable—they’ve introduced America’s first “Single Origin Peanut” line! Yes, you heard me right. Forget single origin coffee or chocolate; we’re talking about peanuts sourced exclusively from Elisha Barnes’ “Pop Son Farm” in Branchville, VA. This isn’t just about nuts; it’s a taste of history and heritage.

Elisha Barnes, a fourth-generation farmer, is the genius behind these peanuts, using the stunning yet labor-intensive shocking method—a practice so rare it’s practically a work of art. This method takes time but produces peanuts with a sweet, earthy flavor that’s simply unparalleled. It’s no wonder these peanuts sell out every year since their debut in 2020.

But there’s more to this story than just great nuts. Elisha’s dedication isn’t just about flavor; it’s about preserving Virginia’s cultural legacy for future generations. His son, now a fifth-generation farmer, is carrying on this tradition, ensuring that these unique farming practices endure.

What’s even more heartening is Hubs’ commitment to community. They’re not just selling peanuts; they’re supporting their neighbors. Proceeds from every can go to the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and Eastern Shore, providing two meals for every Virginian in need. It’s a small nut making a big impact, symbolizing a community’s resilience and creativity in tackling food insecurity.

So, next time you crunch into a Hubs Single Origin Peanut, know that you’re not just enjoying a snack; you’re savoring a piece of Virginia’s history, supporting local farmers, and helping feed your community. Now that’s nuts—in the best possible way!
