PORTALES -- The Sunland Peanut Company in portales is up for sale because of bankruptcy.

But two companies are fighting it out to buy it.

A company called "Hampton Farms" put in a bid to buy Sunland and it was accepted.

However, a company named Golden Boy, made another bid.

They say was better than Hampton Farms and made before the other company's.

Golden Boy is asking a judge to re-examine the bidding process before the sale can go through.
