In 1936, Rufus Yoder started growing popcorn on his family farm. In the Amish custom, he shared his excess crop with his neighbors and friends. They told their friends and neighbors about the excellent quality of Yoder Popcorn, and soon a business was born. After Rufus retired, his children continued to market Yoder Popcorn. After briefly leaving the family in 1996, the business was purchased back in 1999 by Rufus' great niece Sharon, along with her husband Richard and their oldest son Russell and his wife Allyse. Besides operating the Popcorn Shoppe, we also farm 1,700 acres which includes the acreage around the Shoppe. We continue to provide the Yoder customers with the same excellent quality and service to which they are accustomed.
