Hummus is reportedly taking over. Hummus sales are on the rise in the United States, as the traditional Middle Eastern food gets more and more popular. Encouraged by hummus manufacturers, tobacco farmers in Virginia are starting to grow chickpeas to meet the growing demand, as last season US farmers saw a bumper crop. Most of the chickpeas in the US are grown in the Pacific Northwest region of the country, but manufacturers are trying to diversify their sources to avoid potential crop problems such as bad weather that could negatively affect production. Although Virginia is not the ideal place to grow chickpeas because of the heat and humidity level, many farmers are interested in growing it, because of the rising value of the crop. Chickpeas garner an average price of 35 cents per pound, which is 10 cents higher than during the mid 2000s. Sabra Dipping Company, is planning to invest 86 million dollars in Chesterfield County Virginia, and will create 140 new jobs in the next few years.
