    WALNUT RIDGE, Ark. (AP) - A Virginia-based peanut producing company has announced plans to open a plant near Walnut Ridge.

    Birdsong Peanuts of Suffolk, Virginia plans to open the facility on U.S. 412 near the Lawrence County town and will accept peanut crops for drying, inspection and storage - then send the crop to shelling plants.

    Company officials told The Jonesboro Sun that the plant will initially employ five people.
