Our Virginia Peanuts are one of only four types of peanuts grown in the US. They represent only 15% of the total U.S. peanut production. While this variety of peanut is already considered the largest kernel size of all four types, we only source the “cream of the crop” for our delicacies, the very highest market grade available – Super Extra Large. Please note that the actual size of the Super Extra Large Peanut may vary from season to season, depending on the growing conditions of the seasonal crops. Less than 3% of all Virginia Peanuts grown meet the strict standards of this grade. And you can be assured we have sourced the finest and largest available.
All of our Virginia Peanuts are prepared by our Roastmaster in small batches, using the same time-honored recipes. A roasting process that cannot be duplicated by mass production methods. Our peanuts are hand-cooked in pure golden peanut oil with no additives or preservatives to alter the… Read More

Italy is home to the world’s best pasta artisans, so we traveled to Italy’s breathtaking Molise region to create our very own line of pastas. Made from Italian-grown durum wheat semolina, our pasta is crafted in the authentic, old-world Italian tradition. The difference between our pasta and others lies in the process: the dough is extruded slowly through bronze dies and then patiently air-dried on looms and wooden trays for up to 20 hours. The result is a rustic, flavorful pasta with a perfect al dente bite.
Though it pairs beautifully with our new Marinara Sauce, it’s so delicious all you really need is a bit of butter or olive oil to enjoy. Stock up on our new Artisanal Pasta so you’ve always got an exceptional, family-friendly meal at the ready.

Serve up a slice of the Emerald Isle this St. Patrick’s Day with Bristol's Own Irish Soda Bread! Irish Soda Bread was a traditional staple in Irish households, or farms to be correct. Since these homes were isolated and spread out, they had their own hearths for baking, and being a poor country, they ate bread with every meal. The hearth method of baking created a tender and dense bread with a hard crust and a slight twang in flavor.
The Irish Soda Bread of today has been enhanced to have a slightly sweet flavor and it has raisins in it. Warm it up, slap some traditional Irish Kerrygold butter on it and you have a meal!
At Bristol Farms we believe Irish Soda Bread to be an everyday item and you can find it in most of our locations. If you are like me though, sometimes if you see it every day you may not realize just how special it is. I can remember the first time I tried our Irish soda bread - I was a cashier at our Newport Beach store for a few years, but didn’t think this… Read More
