Tough Times For Peanut Farmers ... And A Big Peanut!
We're sad to report that this year's peanut harvest has been one of the worst we've had in many years - but we're happy to report that despite this, there's a push to create a Big Peanut in our home town.

This year's peanut harvest was hit hard by high temperatures over the summer, including two days where we saw the hottest February temperatures ever recorded in the South Burnett.

The result of the heatwave is that peanut production has been slashed by up to 80 per cent.

However we won't probably know the full extent of the crop shortfall until around Anzac Day, which is traditionally when we get our first frosts and peanut growing comes to an end. So we'll keep you posted on the outcome.

You can also read what the ABC had to say about this year's harvest on the ABC News website.

On the brighter side of things, though, a small group of Kingaroy residents recently decided they wanted to revive the idea of building a Big Peanut in our town.

This idea first surfaced in the 1990s but - to this day - we still don't have a Big Peanut in Kingaroy.

WIN News recently aired a report about the push for a Big Peanut, and posted a fun video of it on their Facebook page.
