Take Five with… David Jaindl

Job title: Owner and operator of Jaindl Farms, Jaindl Turkey Sales, Jaindl AG, Jaindl Land Development Company, Jaindl Realty, Schantz Orchards and The Hitter’s Edge. Main offices in Orefield.

Residence: Lives on family farm in Orefield.

Family: Wife Jackie; five children (all work on the farm): Adam, Jake and Luke fulltime, Josh at Kutztown University and Joanna, a senior at Parkland High School.

Dream vacation: An African safari or spending extra time anywhere warm, during the winter with my wife and family.

Secret talent: I am proud of my long-term memory and my ability to balance work and family time. Also, my off-road driving skills.

Fantasy dinner guests: I would love to spend some time with my father and grandfather; both passed away too young. They worked awfully hard, and it would be a real pleasure for me to have them see how the operations are going today; they were both very good people.

Guilty pleasure: Going to Phillies spring training in Clearwater [Fla.] with my boys and a large cheese pizza.

If there were an eighth day of the week, how would you spend it? Same way I do with seven days a week: work and spend extra time with my family.
