On the last Saturday in October, the town of Brundidge pays tribute to the foodstuff that sustained it during the Great Depression and to the little nut that continues to provide a giant boost to the local economy with the annual Peanut Butter Festival harvest and heritage celebration.

Both mills were at full production during the early 1930s and peanut butter was made continually in Brundidge until the 1960s.
