Reviews for: Hawkins Family Farm
Farm Store, Pizza Oven and CSA with Community Spirit
By: Foy Spicer (May 14, 2012)
The Hawkins are nurturing the body and soul on their farm in north east Indiana. When you drive out to the farm store or for pizza Friday nights (in the summer), you'll pass the vegetable and herb garden. Out behind the house you'll see the cattle grazing, the chickens scratching and pigs rutting.
In the store you may purchase frozen chicken, pork and beef. Be sure to give their pepperoni a try. Also available are fresh eggs with high marigold colored yolks full of flavor and nutrition. Local honey and maple syrup are also available.
Become in touch with the season by signing up for a CSA share and receive vegetables as they ripen. For the full experience you can even pick your own and save a couple bucks. You may also choose a meat share.
Pizza Friday nights are a community favorite; starting May 18th this year (2012). See how the garden is growing while enjoying brick oven pizza featuring farm ingredients. Further support the good life by celebrating with a harvest meal, Between Heaven and Earth, which benefits HOPE CSA.
Wonderful Resource... and Pizza!

We had our first pound of the ground beef and were very satisfied for $3.75 per pound. However, we were even more satisfied with their brick oven homemade pizzas! They are beyond comparison and fairly priced between 9-11 dollars. I could probably finish one by myself, so they are not too big. You can bring your own drinks, plates, and a blanket and make a picnic on their beautiful farm.
A well-rounded family farm

We've been happy shareholders for three years now. Jeff's system of self-harvest for the vegetables has made our trip from Fort Wayne a weekly event for the whole family. We feel like we're going home, in a sense, each time we head west.
The products are fabulous and since you get to pick your own, you can gauge just how much of different things you bring home. We aren't fond of purple cauliflower so we take a little bit to see if we'll like it better each year. They include eggs, chickens, turkey, pork, and beef in the shares, which makes it a real investment but as market prices soar, we feel more and more that it's worth it.
