The Begining of the "Han-D-Dip Dairy Barn"

The business was built by Stan and Eunice Hancock in 1963. After six years in business they decided to sell. That's where we came into the picture. Pete was selling insurance and I (Cathy) was about to have our first child. It was the early months of summer in 1969 that we decided to embark on a new and exciting adventure. We became the proud owners of the Han-D-Dip Dairy Barn. In the beginning it was pretty tough on both of us. Pete was still selling insurance and I was trying to run the business with a baby in the back room. Pete would work all day and then come to relieve me in the evening and finish closing up the store. Thanks to a lot of hard work, LONG hours and some wonderful employees, we made it! Starting your own business is always a scary endeavor. You never know for sure if you're doing it right, but thanks to great customers and great employees we would not trade the experience for anything.

To summarize this will be "50" Years in business! We have raised three wonderful children, Dawn, Christina and John. All of them have worked and Managed for us., which really has helped make our business a success. Having family to oversee that things are being run correctly and they have your best interest at heart. We have also been very fortunate to employ some great kids over the years. Many of them are still friends to this day. It's a thrill to see some of them come up with their family years later even if it tends to make us feel a little old. Pete and I have so many wonderful memories and we are looking forward to many more.
