For 30 years…
Whitley’s Peanut Factory has produced gourmet Virginia peanuts, hand-cooked and slow-roasted the old fashioned way. Marion Smith and his son Craig opened Whitley’s in 1986 off Route 17 in Gloucester, and this location still stands as a retail store. Soon after, they opened a second location in Williamsburg and a new production facility in Hayes.
Today, Whitley’s offers the same fine-quality peanuts in a variety of seasonings—salted and unsalted, bourbon barbecue, smoky habanero chili lime, crabby Chesapeake Bay, salt and vinegar, salt and black pepper, bacon maple, sea salt and caramel, honey roasted and butter toffee.
They’ve also introduced their “We’re Giving Back” program, a partnership with the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund in support of U.S. armed forces. Whenever they sell a Support Our Troops Tin of peanuts, a portion of the proceeds go to supporting military personnel suffering the effects of traumatic brain injury and psychological health conditions.
