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!
By: Louise Bedichek    (May 12, 2010)

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

at Foggy Bottom market: helpful to cooks and gardeners
By: Louise Bedichek    (Oct 24, 2009)

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

I contacted one of your members to inquire about a farm visit for my extended family > during a recent visit to Virginia. Robert Haskins of the Haskins Family Farm in Middletown, > VA quickly responded to me and we arranged a visit in late June. He and his wife > Mary were most hospitable and pleasant; we visited baby chicks, young pigs, older > pigs, chickens, turkeys, gathered eggs, and were treated to a tractor/trailer ride. > My four grandchildren had a wonderful visit and learned about where food comes from > and the work that goes into the production of food that is good for us. I cannot > say enough kind things about Robert and Mary Haskins and their generous spirit. They > are very hard workers, and they seem to love what they are accomplishing. Paige Word > and family.
