New peanut facility coming to Darlington County

Rogers Brothers Farm, a crop producer based in Hartsville, will establish a new peanut facility in Darlington County. The $6 million investment is expected to generate 30 new jobs. Rogers Brothers Farm will buy, store and shell locally grown peanuts for the company’s commercial market at its new, 80,000-square-foot facility, located at 2530 Northcutt Road in Hartsville. The raw shelled peanuts will be sold for food processing, wildlife feed and oil crushing. Founded in 1970, Rogers Brothers Farm has grown into the state’s largest cotton farm and one of the largest modern row crop farms in South Carolina.

The family-owned company produces five different crops: cotton, corn, peanuts, wheat and soybeans. Those interested in positions within the company may call (843) 383-4707 or visit for an application. The Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved a $100,000 rural infrastructure grant for real property improvements related to the project. “We are proud and excited about building South Carolina’s first commercial peanut shelling plant. As the peanut industry has grown in the state, we saw a need and opportunity for more peanut infrastructure. Not only will we provide jobs for local citizens, but also an alternative market for South Carolina farmers.”said Gill Rogers, co-owner of Rogers Brothers Farm.
