A LITTLE HUG EVERY TIME

YOU CRACK AN EGG

From left to right George Weaver II, George Weaver III and George Weaver IV

At Nature’s Yoke, we want you to feel a little hug every time you crack an egg — and making sure you do begins long before our free-range eggs are on your table.

Specifically, it starts with our team and the connection they want to have with you.

That connection is what we think about every day as we care for our hens, collect their eggs, carefully pack each egg and make sure they arrive safely at your store and then your home.

Lead by our Generations of Georges, every person on our team feels responsible for your eggs and creating a relationship with you.

Get to know your Nature’s Yoke team and what matters to them as individuals, and then take a moment to share what matters most to you and get our Grow Happy with Gratitude Journal & Activity Kit as an extra treat.

What matters most to you that you celebrate and savor every day? Above all, it’s important to me that God is honored in everything I do. Then my personal life mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of people I meet every day, starting with my wife and children.

What do you love about your role at Nature’s Yoke? I had the privilege of growing up on a chicken farm and I love the opportunity to supply families with organic eggs for quality meals. Equally, I love working with all the people involved in Nature’s Yoke — from our internal team and our free-range hen farmers to our retailers and our many other business partners.

What’s your wish for Nature’s Yoke customers? I want them to feel the love and care that I have for them, and I want them to experience maximum quality of life. As President of the company, I also have special wishes for my team. In particular, I wish for them unity, love and security.
