FAQs

How are Peanuts grown?

Peanuts are actually not a nut but a legume, meaning they grow below ground rather than above ground, on a plant or tree as a nut does. The peanut plant develops flowers, then when the flower withers it turns into a ‘peg’ which then turns downward until it penetrates the soil and eventually grows into a peanut.


Crucially, peanuts can only be grown in frost-free conditions, which therefore dictates the countries and regions they can be farmed in – e.g. California in the USA and African countries including Nigeria and Sudan.


Special machines are used to pull the peanuts from the ground when they’re ready to harvest, which takes place in the autumn months. At this point the peanuts are actually quite moist, but are then cured by a process which uses warm air.

Are your Peanuts Aflatoxin safe? 

Yes, our Premium Peanuts for birds are independently tested to ensure that they are human grade.

Which birds eat Peanuts? 

Peanuts are rich in essential oils and proteins, making them a favourite of many garden bird species including the tit family, Nuthatch and Great Spotted Woodpecker.

What are the best ways to feed whole Peanuts to birds?

Whole peanuts should only ever be fed using a mesh feeder, as this ensures that birds have to peck at the peanuts to remove small pieces. The simple reason this is important, is that some birds – and in particular Robins – have been known to try and swallow whole peanuts which has resulted in them choking to death.
