In case you are not familiar with Hollis, it is in the very southwest corner of Oklahoma, only about 5 miles from Texas. We buy our peanuts from the company we used to sell ours to, which buys from both Oklahoma and Texas farmers. We buy raw peanuts and then cook and flavor them ourselves. Our peanut butter is made from peanuts we cook and then grind, so it is always fresh-made. It is important to us that our peanuts are fresh because there is nothing worse that a stale peanut!
