Reviews for: Haskins Family Farm
By: James Bell (Sep 9, 2010)
Wow! Great web page. I am in the process of setting up a small family farm here in Texas. Looking at web pages to get some ideas for our own page. I saw a post of yours on homesteadhogs and thought you had good insight into things. We are planning to have a very small number of Red Wattle Hogs, Dexter cattle, and some good egg producers for family and maybe see about a farmers market in the distant future. Your web page design both look and feel is something I would like to fashion a web page after way in the future. Thanks for posting your thoughts on homesteadhogs so I could find you.
chicken carcasses, too!

Where to get a chicken carcass for chicken broth, the base for so many recipes, soups, of course, but other dishes as well ? Not being a big meat eater, I was delighted to find that the Haskins Family Farm stand at Fresh Farm Market sells them. Louise B. Foggy Bottom resident

In addition to the fresh eggs and jerked turkey, you get friendly, helpful advice from the Haskins. For example, I wanted eggs but worried about cholesterol: " how about extra-small eggs?" I wanted to enrich my wysteria organically: "just be careful with the hen manure: it is so high in nitrogen that it can burn plants." Louise B, Foggy Bottom resident
