Weaver Nut Company

Our History

Family Owned Since 1975


Weaver Nut Company, Inc. began in 1975 as Weaver Bulk Foods in the basement of the family home. While operating from their home, Mr. And Mrs. Weaver owned and operated seven market stands, each selling bulk foods, dried fruits and nuts. After five years they sold six of the market stands, retaining the Cloister Shopping Center stand. In 1982, they moved the wholesale portion of the business to a leased space behind the Cloister Shopping Center, where they sold wholesale candy, dried fruits, nuts and bulk foods. A year later, in 1983, they opened a candy store called Weaver's Candy and Cookie Outlet, also in the Cloister Shopping Center. In 1986 and 1987 they built and moved to the current location at 1925 West Main Street, Ephrata, PA. With the move the business was renamed to E. Paul Weaver III Nut Company, Inc. In 1990, both the wholesale warehouse and retail store were doubled in size. In 1993, the name and logo was changed to Weaver Nut Company, Inc.

In 1995, Mr. Weaver created a private label brand, Amish Maidâ„¢ products to showcase delicious and local wholesale jams and canned goods.

In February of 1995, Mr. Weaver also started a corporation called Food Brokers International. This is a brokerage company designed to enhance Weaver Nut Company, Inc. with its importing and buying power. We now import products from around the world under the private label of Food Brokers International.
