J.L. Hawkins Family Farm
In 1957, John Leo and Velma Hawkins purchased a ninety-nine acre farm outside of the small town of North Manchester, Indiana. Today, Jeff and Kathy Hawkins, along with their children, continue the farming tradition started by Jeff's grandparents. We invite you to enjoy the bounty of the farm with us!
J. L. Hawkins Family Farm operates on a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) basis, selling shares of the naturally-raised farm harvest. Full harvest shares feature beef, pork, chicken, a Thanksgiving turkey, and weekly vegetables during the growing season.
Our pasture-raised red chickens are featured on the menu at Joseph Decuis, northeast Indiana's only AAA Four Diamond restaurant, and you can also find them--along with our pasture-raised beef, pork, brown eggs, and other local fare--for sale in our farm store. We are proud to work with many of our region's best restaurants, including Cerulean, KenapocoMocha, Fruit Basket Inn, and b Well Kitchen.
Join us on most summer Friday nights for Fridays on the Farm, a dining experience for the whole family featuring artisan pizzas made with all-natural, locally-sourced ingredients and baked in an outdoor, wood-fired brick oven.
