Hardy Farms has been a family owned business since 1935. From supermarkets to roadside stands, Hardy Farms has been turning out the finest, gluten free peanuts around.
The Hardy Business
The family-oriented operation works because everyone has an interest in making sure the business is successful! The business is divided into two parts: Hardy Farms grows the peanuts and Hardy Farms Peanuts sells them. About 50% of the business is dedicated to producing the green peanuts and the other 50% is devoted to the boiled peanut business and roadside stands that span from Gray to Sandersville, to Tifton.
The Hardys work in all main aspects of their business
production, processing, and marketing. From the time the peanuts are planted until the time they are put in the bag and shipped out for distribution, the Hardys have their hands on the process. Although green peanuts are sold about three months out of the year, boiled peanuts and roasted peanuts are sold year-round.

the details of which we guard as trade secrets -- place our peanut operation in a category usually reserved for fresh produce. While handpicked peanuts are the gold standard, we’ve worked on innovative equipment and technology to try to emulate that standard and still produce the highest quality of peanut. While yield volume, harvesting process, operational expansions and regulatory guidelines have changed from our first year, our commitment to those that purchase our peanuts has not. We pride ourselves on producing peanuts affectionately known by many as “The Country Caviar.”
