The drought in the south will soon have impact on our pocketbooks here in the Northland. It appears it's not just peanuts but related products such as peanut butter that will cost more this fall.
This year’s peanut crop is projected to drop 13 percent from last year, according to the United States Department of Agriculture.
That will translate into pricier peanuts. Makers of JIF peanut butter, for example, have already announced a 30 percent price hike is on its way.
