The Marks family has been growing Virginia Peanuts for three generations. In the Heart of peanut country, we are located just outside of Capron, in southside Virginia. Out here on the farm, we cook and package locally grown, Virginia Gourmet Cocktail Peanuts. We offer many flavors that are sure to please everyone on your gift list as well as a nice treat for you. From our Gourmet Salted/Unsalted cocktail peanuts, to Honey Roasted, Butter Toasted, Peanut Squares, Old Fashioned Peanut Brittle, Choco Covered Peanut Brittle, our newest flavors, Garlic, and Chesapeake Bay Spice, and of course, everyones cool weather favorite, Chocolate Covered Peanuts, we guarantee each and every can or bag for freshness and quality.
In 1993 Belmont Peanuts of Southampton, Inc. was launched. It all started with an idea to promote a product that our family has produced and believed in for generations. Mail order seemed to be a good fit as it allowed me flexibility and time for growth while being at home with our children. The basement of our home seemed like a likely place to start out.
Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to stop by and see us. I was born and raised in the small town of Wakefield Virginia. The first peanuts in the new world were grown in that area. Since 1976 I have been cooking and experimenting in the kitchen to try and create the best Virginia Gourmet Peanuts available. I joined Patsy and Bob here at Belmont Peanuts in the summer of 2004 and together we created a facility right here on their family farm that we can hand cook and package our Gourmet Peanuts.
