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.
The product was without a doubt - peanuts! I grew up on a farm in northeastern
The original structure of our home which is named "
Our business has grown with the help from each one of my family members. We have spent endless hours packaging peanuts, folding boxes, filling orders and paying close attention to a product that we truly believe in - the
Just as my family has grown and matured, our business has taken off. In 2004, David Peck joined us. David has been around the business since he was very young and knows how to cook a great peanut. Along with his cooking skills, he is knowledgeable in every aspect of the business. David has been a tremendous asset to our company. As a result of our growth, additional space was needed. We moved into a facility on the farm. Today, we cook, package and ship from that facility.
Our success is attributed to our wonderful customers sharing our products with their friends, families and associates. Word of mouth really is our biggest advertiser. And yes, we have developed many special friends all over our country and abroad. We appreciate your business and strive each day to provide exceptional
Yes, we live in a rural area, working the land to preserve a way of life that we treasure. On the farm, Bob and Mike not only grow peanuts. Our other crops include cotton, corn, soybeans and even watermelons. Each crop is grown under their watchful eyes with careful attention given to good environmental practices. Our livelihood depends upon the quality of products that we produce and market all over the world.
Freshness, quality and customer service is our commitment everyday. We love what we do - we believe in what we are promoting - we enjoy talking with our customers. Today we are not just a mail order business - we welcome wholesale accounts, offer quantity discounts and specialize in private labels. Our doors are open to opportunities that help promote the Virginia Type Peanut and peanut products.
We really are down on the farm - please stop by for a visit - we'd love to meet you and show you around. If you are new to us and are contemplating ordering our products - go ahead - we guarantee you'll be glad you did.
The Peck Family
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 Virgnia. 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.
Keep on Munchin!
