A Family Tradition From The Lehigh Valley To The White House
11-05-2018
Posted by: Gabriella Lee

The name Jaindl Turkey Farms is synonymous with Thanksgiving in the Lehigh Valley and beyond. Purchasing a Jaindl turkey for Thanksgiving dinner has been a part of family traditions for generations. The family owned Orefield, Pa turkey farm takes pride in Jaindl turkeys’ starring role at many Thanksgiving dinner tables. In fact, Jaindl turkeys are so prized that Jaindl turkeys have been served for the Thanksgiving meal of the President of the United States and his family at the White House for decades.

 

“We send two turkeys to the white house for Thanksgiving every year,” says Joanna Jaindl, retail and marketing manager. “We send them in a special wrapping that reads ‘Happy Holidays Mr. President.’ The turkeys are handpicked right off the line by my father, David Jaindl, and no different from our other turkeys. The Jaindl turkeys served at the white house represent the National Turkey Federation and we are proud of that.” Cathy Jaindl adds, “We started providing the turkeys for the White House dinner as far back as Eisenhower.”

 

Cathy’s brother, David Jaindl, is the current owner of Jaindl Farms and she speaks with pride of his dedication to the company. Jaindl has been a family company from it’s very beginning in 1935 with cousins, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters and in-laws working together to provide the best in Turkeys and turkey products to the Valley. “I don’t know any other way of life,” says Cathy. “It’s hard for me to imagine not working with family. This is in our blood.”

 

Jaindl Farms has a seasonal retail store on Coffeetown Road in Orefield, where customers can purchase Jaindl product at a ‘first come, first serve’ basis. The store offers fresh whole turkeys, smoked ready-to-eat turkeys, brined turkeys, turkey BBQ, turkey jerky, fully cooked turkey nuggets (an exciting new product), and of course, A-Treat soda, another Lehigh Valley family tradition that was recently acquired and revitalized by Jaindl a few years ago. You can find their extended holiday hours on their website. Jaindl also offers gift cards that can be used in the retail store. “The gift cards are a great holiday gift for friends, family and local businesses to hand out to their employees. The cards never expire,” says Joanna. If interested in purchasing Jaindl Gift Cards, call the farm’s office at 610-395-3333 and ask for Joanna.

 

Jaindl turkeys can also be purchased at grocery stores like Wegmans, Whole Foods, and Giant to name just a few. Dawn Carlon, long time Jaindl employee, handles all large wholesale orders and Cathy Jaindl handles all small wholesale orders. Jaindl ships turkeys anywhere continental USA through mail-order. If interested, they accept orders through their wholesale department.

 

The Jaindl family is pleased to continue the traditions started by patriarch John L. Jaindl and his son, Fred Jaindl, over 80 years ago with just 5 turkeys and now has grown to raising close to 800,000 turkeys per year. “It is very rewarding to be a part of local family’s traditions during the holidays and throughout the year,” says Joanna Jaindl. “We work every day to continue the family traditions of quality and customer service.”
