100 Moments That Matter

A lot can happen in 100 years. Take a look at the stories that shaped us over the last century.



Story 1

Every company has a humble beginning. For us, railway express agent Arthur Perdue noticed the success of poultry farmers and decided to put his eggs in a new basket.

Story 2

We like to say the egg came first. After marrying Arthur in 1917 and moving into their new farmhouse, Pearl Perdue tended to their early chicken flocks and helped Arthur start our company back in 1920.

1920 was an unforgettable year for the Perdue Family. They started their poultry business, welcomed their son Franklin, and purchased a Ford Model T, with snap-on curtains!

Story 5

It didn't take long for Perdue to become a family business. In 1925, Arthur and Pearl Perdue switched from table eggs to hatching and selling chicks to farmers—even young Franklin helped his family out.

Story 6

And they say you can’t work with family. It’s worked for us since the mid 1920s, when Arthur Perdue hired his cousin, Preston Dennis, on a part-time basis to help till the land and support the growing business.
