    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.

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.

Vernon Parker, Hubs' master chef, has worked with the company for 50 years.

Vernon Parker, Hubs' master chef, has worked with the company for 52 years.

"And at the end of the day, I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight, Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"

On December 23, 2015 Vernon Parker officially retired  after 52 years of employment at Hubbard Peanut Company.   Vernon was the very first full time, year round employee hired by Dot and H J Hubbard as their business began to grow and expand. 

“For all of those fifty-two years, Vernon was the first person here in the morning and among the last to leave at night,” according to Lynne Rabil, company president. “He fired up the cooker at 5:00 a.m. to get everything rolling for the rest of the crew who arrives at 8:00 a.m. He is a role model for everyone here because of his strong and reliable work ethic.” Hubbard Peanut Company’s Production Manager, David Benton, says, “I’ve worked with Vernon for twenty-five years, and can easily say that I’ve never met a more dedicated employee. He cares deeply about the business, his co-workers, and most importantly our customers.  Vernon is always willing to go the extra mile.”

Not only does Parker know everything there is to know about cooking Hubs peanuts, he gets a sparkle in his eye when he talks about the past.  "I was born into the business and have worked here for a few years myself, but his institutional knowledge about Hubbard Peanut Company is something I reference quite frequently,” according to Rabil. "Vernon literally whistles while he works, and we will miss hearing that tell tale whistle around the plant, but he lives around the corner and we expect to see him often!"
