Whitley's Peanut Factory

1351 Richmond Road
Williamsburg, VA 23185
United States

In 1986, with only one small batch roaster and three employees cooking peanuts, Marion Smith and his son Craig opened the doors to Whitley's Peanut Factory, which still stands as a retail store off Route 17 in Gloucester, VA. Due to high demand, they soon opened a second location in Williamsburg, VA, and a new production facility in Hayes, VA. Thirty years and millions of peanuts later, Whitley's Peanut Factory has become a local staple for "Home-Cooked" roasted Virginia peanuts and peanut confections. Whitley's delicious "Home-Cooked" peanuts are still hand cooked and slowly roasted to perfection the old-fashioned way. Hand selected for their size (super extra large) and packaged at the peak of their flavor will assure you always receive a fine quality product. Todd Smith, now president, continues his family's legacy of roasting Virginia peanuts to golden perfection.
