After working in the restaurant industry for 8 years, Hamilton was looking for a company that could offer him and his young family a better quality of life.  Finding it with Happy Chicken Farms and Merry Milk Maid, his career began as a route driver.  As he learned the various products we carried, his role expanded by working in the warehouse and loading trucks.  In 1993, Ham was invited to try out working in the office to help with customer calls, AR processing, and some ordering of products.  As the company continued to grow, so did his responsibilities, being promoted to  Vice President of Sales & Marketing for a 15 year period.  The executive team placed a great deal of trust in Hamilton allowing him to help make major decisions that impacted the family business.  In 2014, after his children were grown and on their own, Ham and his wife decided to simplify their lives and get more involved in their religious ministry.  The Lackey family fully supported this life decision, agreeing to adjust the weekly work schedule and hours in order to achieve this goal.  Hamilton now works 3 days a week in supporting the sales team and Key Account Relations, along with assisting in the everyday needs of our growing company.  Ham states, “Working for Happy Chicken Farms and the Lackey family has been the best decision I could have made and I intend to end my career here!”
