 About Us

Wakefield Peanut Company...the tradition continues

Wakefield Peanut Company continutes to cultivate a tradition of excellence beginning more than 150 years ago when the first commercial peanut crop in the United States was grown only a few miles west of our location. And, for over 40 years, our family-owned business in Wakefield, Virginia, has produced some of the finest peanut products available.

Stop by and visit our country store and sample our peanuts and peanut products, and to learn a little something about the peanut growing and harvesting process through our educational video. We are located on Highway 460 and are about a one hour drive from Richmond,the historic capital of Virginia and a short drive or a ferry ride from Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg. If you need a gift (or a snack) on your way to the beach or other destination, stop in and you will see our beautifully packaged peanuts make a perfect thank you or hostess gift. We look forward to seeing you.

Wakefield Peanut Company will be celebrating its 50th year in the peanut business in 2015. Through the years, we have built a strong relationship with the agricultural community and with our farmers who have been growing peanuts for us for years. We know these farmers, not only as customers, but as friends who have the knowledge and experience in growing the best peanuts they possible can for Wakefield Peanut Company. Many of these farmers have been peanut yield per acre state champions, which says a great deal about the high standards they have in farming. While most of the award-winning peanuts will be used as seed in the next planting season, during the shelling process, we select the finest super extra-large peanuts for sale to our retail and wholesale customers. These peanuts are then hand-cooked on site and used in a variety of products offered for sale. We offer a selection of raw peanuts in and out of the shell - both blanched, redskin peanuts, as well as salted and roasted peanuts

We also offer other items such as jellies, jams, honey, peanut candy, mixes and gift items.

We are proud to be part of the Virginia's Finest Program.

Whether you order by mail, on our website or visit our store, we appreciate your past and future patronage. As always, we take pride in providing you with the best products and service. A satisfied customer is our best advertisement and we always welcome your comments and suggestions.

You will discover that the Tradition of Excellence still continues at Wakefield Peanut Companty.
