What do you think about Pic's peanut growing trial in Northland?
Northland is now home to a peanut growing initiative worth $91K in a partnership between Pic's Peanut Butter and the Ministry for Primary Industries.
The project started in October on three Northland kūmara farms, with the peanuts ready for harvest in the next 16 weeks. Founder of Pic's Peanut Butter Pic Picot says that he hopes to make their product 100 per cent New Zealand-made if the trial proves successful.
MPI investment programmes director Steve Peno said that a plan to expand into a full-scale production would boost the local economy and create job opportunities for the region.
"This project fits perfectly with our goal of funding projects that will make a positive and lasting difference," says Penno.

An unnamed female brown kiwi is still touch-and-go after a dog attack in Kerikeri about a week ago left it with puncture wounds, scrapes, bruising and a sore hip. Robert Webb from Whangārei Native Bird Recovery Centre wants dog owners to put their dogs on leads when walking in bush and forest areas, to stop this happening again. What do you think?
