The Peanut King Remember pressing your nose against the display case of the nut counter, watching the slowly turning lazy susan that was filled to over flowing with every kind of nut? Those nut counters, like the neighborhood five-and-dime stores that housed them, have disappeared. A visit to the Richard Green Co., Inc. brings those memories back to life. Richard Green owns the oldest and one of the largest nut processing businesses in Indiana. "The Peanut King", middle-aged, with wisps of gray beginning to show in his sandy hair, Green projects a calmness that belies the ambition that has driven him to be a success.
