"This peanut butter definitely tastes homemade. It only has two ingredients: peanuts and peanut oil. Absolutely no salt has been added, which is hard to find in a peanut butter. One serving of 2 tablespoons provides 180 calories, 15g fat (only 2g saturated), 7g protein, and 0mg sodium. It comes in a variety of flavors, but for me there is nothing better than plain crunchy."
Shipping rates been an ongoing challenge for us at Reginald's—particularly on smaller orders. We have been working hard to come up with a solution that makes it easier on everyone, especially our customers. And we think we've found one.
Introducing Reginald's Homemade Flat Rate Shipping.
Our new flat rate shipping structure removes weight and delivery address from the equation and sets in place two standard shipping tiers:
At this time, flat rate shipping is not available to locations outside of the continental U.S. For international orders or orders to Alaska or Hawaii, please contact us via our form here or by phone at (804) 972-4040. We apologize for any inconvenience. We hope this new tiered flat rate shipping structure helps take the unwanted surprise out of determining cart totals for online orders.
Please note that we will continue to use UPS Ground for all Flat Rate orders placed through our website. Alternative faster shipping methods are available, but at this time can only be taken by phone. We will be sure to update you when express shipping options are available online. For express shipping options, please call (804) 972-4040.
Flat Rate Shipping is not available for wholesale orders at this time. To place a wholesale order, please contact us at (804) 972-4040.

Tell us the basics: Who are you, what’s your company’s name, and how long have you been at this company? My name is Andrew Broocker and I own Reginald’s Homemade. We make all-natural peanut and cashew butter that’s sold online, at local farmers’ markets and at various retailers throughout Richmond, Charlottesville, Williamsburg and now Rockville, Md. We’ve been around since May 2011.
You lost 150 pounds while deciding to live a healthier lifestyle. What led from that to starting a business focusing on peanut butter and other nut butters? I worked in the restaurant industry around Richmond for most of my adult life. I was overweight, unhealthy and unhappy. One day, I said “enough is enough” and decided to turn my life around and get fit. Over the course of a year, I lost about 150 lbs. As I got healthy, I developed a love for all-natural peanut butter. When I wasn’t satisfied with the options on the shelf, I started to make my own. That’s how Reginald’s Homemade got its start.
