Coffee County Peanut Boil

Cooler fall temperatures traditionally gets many area residents thinking of "boiled peanuts".

Thee Coffee County Extension Service held its Annual Peanut-Boil. The event is a fundraiser for the county's 4-H programs. That organization is celebrating its 100th birthday.

Enterprise resident Dan Presley has been with the 4-H program for more than 50 years. The peanut boil brings back the day when neighbor visited neighbor on the farm.

Presley says, “It brings back to a time when folks on a Saturday afternoon would meet up in town, and talk about the day's events and times. It was a time when folks would see each other; sometimes they hadn't seen each other in years.”

The peanut boil is the start of a full slate of farm-city events in Coffee County. It culminates with the Farm-City Banquet in New Brockton in late November.
