Hawkins Homestead Farm
This grower has a photo album.
Our family specializes in fresh eggs, organic pastured chicken, and organic seasonal produce you’ll be happy to eat! We are a small urban farm that started out trying to find a way to feed our own family in a healthy and sustainable manner. It’s so important that we know what we’re feeding ourselves, where our food comes from, what it ate, and how it was raised or grown. Our birds are spoiled rotten! The majority spend their time free ranging in our backyard pasture. We let them out early in the day and they are locked up once they go in at night. We do supplement with a Non-GMO feed for our egg layers and a Non-GMO Organic feed for our meat birds which is rationed each day. In addition, they also receive treats in the form of organic herbs and vegetables from our garden with some occasional black oiled sunflower seeds, which they love. We try to find a use for almost everything here, so we compost our scraps and our chicken manure. Doing things this way has enabled us to re-purpose and grow some wonderful goodies in the garden. We are committed to the care and health of our animals and the food we grow. We never use antibiotics, growth hormones, or pesticides. Our produce is grown from Non-GMO Organic seed and a few Non-GMO Organic started plants. We take pride in what we do and are happy to say that what started out as food for our family has blossomed into food for yours.
