Bob & Patsy Marks and Lee & Dee Copeland, Southampton County, Email, (800) 648-4613
In 1993 Belmont Peanuts of Southampton, Inc. was launched. It all started with an idea to promote a product that this family has produced and believed in for generations. The product was without a doubt – peanuts! Patsy grew up on a farm in northeastern North Carolina where her father grew peanuts each and every year. Bob, her husband, and his brother Mike, are also in the agricultural business and yes, peanuts are a regular crop even today. The family lives in an area called the “Heart of Peanut Country.”
The original structure of the family home, which is named “Belmont,” dates back to 1790 so it was appropriate to associate its historic name with the quality peanuts that have played such an important role in Virginia’s history. Freshness, quality and customer service is Belmont Peanuts’ commitment every day. This family loves what they do: they believe in what they are promoting and enjoy talking with their customers.
