Our Story

How it all began

Arthur W. Perdue, a hard working railway express agent on Maryland's Eastern Shore, noticed that the most prosperous farmers were those shipping table eggs. He also noticed Pearl Parsons. In 1917, he wed Pearl, and decided to become a poultry man. Pearl tended a backyard flock of layers adjacent to the couple's new home in Salisbury, while Arthur saved up enough money to go into the poultry business full time.
