Since 1951, the Gurganus Family has been farming quality Virginia peanuts in Southampton County, the largest peanut-producing county in the state of Virginia. In 1990, we purchased a peanut buying station to buy area farmers’ peanuts. Then in 1991, we opened Gurganus Peanut Outlet, incorporated to sell our farm fresh, family grown Virginia peanuts retail. Sixteen years and three expansions later, we now offer a wide variety of cooked and raw peanut products, Village Candles, Virginia Hams and bacon, and an assortment of homemade crafts.
When traveling Highway 58 on your summer vacation, stop by to visit and enjoy our fresh, homegrown fruits and vegetables or adorn your home with our pumpkins and gourds in the fall.
As our business continues to grow, our main goal stays the same; providing quality farm fresh Virginia peanuts to our valued customers!
