Good afternoon. Thank you for calling Dakin farm.
My name is Chuck. How may I help you?
Sure, I can help you do that.
May I have your customer number on the
back of the catalog please?
Are we shipping to you or someone else, ma'am?
That's what cushions the product.
This is a spiral sliced ham. And we like it so
when the customer or the gift recipient
opens the package they get to look right
at the nice label right on top.
And we put serving suggestions in, which
show how to serve the spiral sliced ham.
And this particular order is going to
Martha Stewart living in New York City
to be filmed, or shot, for their April issue.
And Easter happens to be in April
this year so we're pretty excited about that.
I've worked here for five years, the last four I've been the lead packer.
And so I get to help people learn how to pack
And it's a pretty busy,
exciting, time of year. It's just kind of a
great comradery. A lot of the people have
been here for many years. This makes it
kind of a special place to be. Before I
retired I was a physician. I was in
infant practice, internal medicine in
Rutland for thirty years but I retired
ten years ago, and I just can't spend the winters without
doing something and this was actually a fun oportunity.
So I'm Molly Ball and I
grew up on Dakin road less than a half
a mile away from both Sam Jr. and
Sam Senior. and my dad guest boils in
the Ferrisburgh store every year.
My name is Martha Osmond. I've been working here
at Dakin Farm only two weeks and I
wanted to, though, for years because
I've always loved the products.
It's a great family atmosphere here. We have multi-
generations working here. Employees, my
father's still around after 50 years and
my sister runs our Dorset Street store.
So it's a real family business and we're
sending gifts to family and friends
across the country. So it really is a happy
holidays from our family to yours.
