In 1970 Gill Rogers started farming the land of his grandfather, R. P. Gillespie, a man respected and admired by his peers for his innovation in agriculture.
After over forty years of determination diligence, and hard work, Gill, and his two sons now operate one of the largest modern row crop farms in South Carolina “Rogers Brothers Farm”. Always mindful of the environment, Rogers Brothers Farm has grown by taking advantage of an opportunity, recognizing and utilizing available resources, and embracing new technology. After a decade of experience in the peanut industry, we recognize that the climate and soil of South Carolina is ideal for growing the highest quality and best-tasting peanuts that can be found. In honor of our ancestors, we offer our roasted peanuts in the name of Gillespie’s Peanuts. Our experience has given us the insight to select peanut varieties for superior flavor and quality. The greatest care is taken in choosing varieties, processing, cooking, packaging, and handling to ensure that our customers will have the opportunity to enjoy fresh tasting peanuts.
Grown in Darlington and Lee Counties, Gillespie’s Peanuts are SC Certified Farm grown, and family owned, it doesn’t get much more local than this! Did you know our peanuts are packaged in Sonoco cans—right here in the heart of Hartsville!
Customers always tell us we have the crunchiest peanuts with the most flavor. That’s because after years of growing peanuts, we have discovered and grown the most desirable peanuts! Then you add in chocolate, salt, sriracha, or caramel…and shut the front door….they are some kinda good..
Gillespie’s Peanuts are South Carolina’s only roasted peanuts. Our flavor combinations like Low Country Boil and Carolina BBQ offer a South Carolina flavor that is simply unmatched. It’s no wonder people can’t get enough of them!
Peanuts make the best gifts. They are delicious and consumable. Whether you’re choosing a hostess gift, Christmas present, or token of appreciation….nothing says it better that Gillespie’s Peanuts!
