Growing Peanut Butter

Posted: Updated:

A local filmmaker presented his first official feature film today.

Joseph Barnhart's "Growing Peanut Butter" details the production of peanuts and peanut butter -- and provides a brief overview of the peanut plant from ancient to modern history.

Today's debut helped kick-start a fundraising campaign to get the film finished -- a personal experience Barnhart is excited to share.

"I grew up on a farm so I understand and appreciate all the aspects and hard work that goes into it. Not being able to do that myself, I am able to give back to the farming industry."

Georgia produces about 50% of the country's peanut crop.

Barnhart has 60 days to raise $12,000 to fund his documentary.  Click here to donate and learn more.
