He is known to many in the southeast as “Mr. Peanut” – the voice of authority when it comes to peanuts on the Southeast Agnet.
Tyron Spearman is also the executive director for the National Peanut Buying Points Association and he poses here with some of his members making grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at the Southern Peanut Growers Conference on Sunday. Tyron is the one on the left, if you don’t know him. I just met him myself today – even though I also do programming for the Southeast Agnet. Our paths just never crossed until today.
In this interview, Tyron talks about what the NPBPA does and why they take an active role as a sponsor of the annual Southern Peanut Growers Conference.
