Here’s Why This Young Peanut Farmer is Continuing the Family Legacy

Douglas Harrell is the son of former National Peanut Board Chairman John Harrell and his wife Deena. Douglas grew up on the farm north of Whigham, Georgia. As kids, he and his cousin Lafe were given lots of manual labor on the farm and they both couldn’t wait to get off the farm. “We both went to the University of Georgia and we’re both full-time farmers now,” Douglas said. “I hate to say farming is just in your blood, but there’s something about it that brings you back.”

Why America’s Favorite Spread is Now a “Favourite” Across the Pond

This New Peanut Butter Maker Wants to Inspire Others to Pursue Their Dreams

There’s little room for the word “try” in Krystina Murawski’s vocabulary. Born and raised in Westchester County, NY, Murawski says she always gives 110 percent to everything that she does. “I've always been an all or nothing person. I'm either full throttle or no throttle.”

Combine this go-getter attitude with Murawski’s self-described obsession with peanut butter and you have “Noomi” (pronounced “new me”). She launched the brand in April 2018 after working fervently on her own, with friends and an executive chef mentor, Leslie Lampert, to find the right balance of ingredients for what would soon become Noomi organic peanut butter. She made—literally—over 100 different peanut butter recipes before deciding on a simple but revolutionary blend of organic dry roasted peanuts, organic Deglet Noor dates, grapeseed oil, peanut oil and Atlantic sea salt.

One-third of consumers worldwide prefer to buy food from sustainable brands.

That’s according to a recent surveyof 20,000 adults from five countries, including the U.S, which was conducted by Unilever – a transnational consumer goods company. 

After attending Menus of Change(MOC), an annual summit hosted by the Culinary Institute of America and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, I learned how the food service industry is making moves to listen to consumers’ concerns. The good news is that chefs and other food service leaders are working to improve environmental health – but there is still great need for change in one specific area: water sustainability.
