Daniel Weaver Neff

  • 2000

In December 1920, Clyde and Emma Weaver, newlywed teenagers, started out on a business journey that would continue for 5 generations. Having grown up around the meat business, they “put together what little they had” and took 5 meat items to market. Over the next decade they innovated a new product that allowed them to prosper during the Depression years to come. Starting in East Petersburg, Lancaster Co., Pa., this book covers their 100-year history—from the various markets they attended, to new products being offered, through five generations of family members. Beautiful full-color photographs enhance the story and invite the reader to envision what the next 100 years will look like for their company. (216pp. full-color illus. Author, 2020.)
