Stands to reason that the best peanuts make the best chipotle peanuts.
Virginia peanuts are just better. They are bigger plumper and tastier. It might be due to the soil or the weather or the farming methods. Hard to tell. Actually, who cares? Just know it is true.
The Marks family grows, processes, flavors and packs their fabulous peanuts all on the family’s farm in South East Virginia. If peanuts were sold at farmer’s markets, this is what we would all be buying.
Stands to reason that having everything done in small batches on a single family farm is the recipe for the best peanuts you will ever eat.
Try them and see for yourself.

Stories to Savor
Capron, Virginia is close to US Route 95. Sorta. It’s close, but my GPS does not give directions all the way to the address for Belmont Peanuts. The good news is that there is almost no opportunity to make a wrong turn and get lost.
This is a beautiful corner of America. Quiet. Peaceful. Lush. Makes you realize that getting off the interstate is good for one’s mental health. (That may be a metaphor for life - you decide.)
The Marks family faced a generational challenge. Sooner or later, all families do. They lived in a kind of Eden. They had been farming peanuts there for 100 years. The next generation had graduated from college. The question was literally, “how you’re gonna to keep ‘em down on the farm.......”
Most problems have an answer, if we are willing to be creative. The Marks family’s solution to their problem was to become a business that 20-somethings could see as attractive and exciting. They had a product and smarts and energy. What else would any startup want?
A plant was built on the farm to process and package their peanuts. Graphics were designed and a sales marketing effort launched. The entire family worked to make the business a success and a new chapter written in a family’s personal history.
