    Home Cooked in Sedley

When you receive a tin of Hubs home cooked Virginia peanuts, whether as a gift or as a treat for yourself, you open the door to our home. Many years ago, in the small Virginia crossroads village of Sedley, Dot Hubbard developed a unique way to cook the Virginia peanuts grown on her father’s farm. She diligently used only the finest peanuts from the local harvest. Today, Dot’s recipe for using only the best remains unchanged.

From our home to yours...we hope you will enjoy Hubs.

Twenty-Five Years....With our Dynamic Duo

Jean (1)

Jean supervises accounts receivable and mail orders

It's hard to think of one without the other.  Both began their careers at Hubbard Peanut Company as seasonal 'typists' looking for a little something extra while their children were young.  Both had outstanding skills that caught our attention and  both quickly became department supervisors.  As we begin the planning for yet another holiday season, we know we can count on both of these women to take care of our very important customers. 

From beginning work at Hubbard Peanut Company using carbon paper and whiteout when typing on IBM Selectrics ... to finding their way around computers and basic Excel spreadsheets , these two have been adaptable and willing to step up to many  challenges along the way.  After more than 25 years,  Jean and Kaye still answer every call with an uplifting voice and friendly manner and take care of every customer as though he or she is the most important. 

We salute 25 years of outstanding service to Hubbard Peanut Company and recognize the individuality of each of these women.  Jean, known for her compassion and fierce loyalties, keeps us posted on what's going on in our community.   Kaye,  caring and family oriented, is our 'eagle eye' for detail and keeps us well organized.

If you ever need to know anything about the Hubbard Peanut Company ordering process, you can ask for either one of these ladies.  Just be sure you don't call at 1:00, because that's the time that Jean and Kaye go to lunch.....with each other!

Thank you for Jean and Kaye for twenty-five years...and more...of helping to make Hubs the best peanuts in the world.

Powerful Peanut Lessons  

Peanuts are powerhouses of energy. With 7 grams of protein per ounce, peanuts give you 12% of the Recommended Daily Allowance of protein in each serving.

Peanuts promote weight loss. Peanuts create energy and control blood sugar so that you exercise more efficiently. The high fiber content in peanuts helps make you feel full quicker, so you snack less and keep hunger at bay longer.

Peanuts are naturally cholesterol free. Studies show that 2-3 servings of peanuts daily help to lower LDL (“bad” cholesterol levels) 11-14% without lowering HDL (“good” cholesterol).

Studies have shown that eating peanuts is part of a healthy diet and may lower your risk of heart attack. Eating 2-3 ounces of peanuts daily may lower your risk of heart attacks and cardiovascular disease by as much as 21 %. Peanuts contain mostly unsaturated fats and non-detectable levels of transfats. A high ratio of unsaturated fats to saturated fats helps improve your cardiovascular health.

Peanuts help inhibit cancer growth. Phytosterol beta-sitosterol (SIT),found naturally in peanuts, has been shown to inhibit cancer growth. SIT may offer protection against colon, prostate, and breast cancer, all of which tend to occur more in Americans than in other populations.

Peanuts create quick energy that burns calories and builds muscle. As a low response food on the Glycemic Index, peanuts satiate feelings of hunger, give you bursts of energy and help control blood sugar levels.

Peanuts are little gold mines of nutrients. Peanuts have almost half of the 13 vitamins essential for normal growth and health and 35% of the essential minerals.
