Hawkins Family Farm

Hawkins Family Farm Hawkins Family Farm is a fourth-generation farm in Wabash County, Indiana. In 1957, John Leo and Velma Hawkins purchased a ninety-nine acre farm just outside of North Manchester, IN.

Today, Jeff and Kathy Hawkins continue the farming tradition started by Jeff's grandparents, operating primarily on a Community Supported Agriculture /9CSA) basis. Shares of the natural farm harvest are offered to folks in northeast Indiana, as well as meat, eggs, and other items for individual purchase. We invite you to enjoy the bounty of the farm with us!

📣📣MEET OUR TEAM📣📣

This is Michael and he has been working with us for almost 8 years. Michael's favorite things to grow are Aduki Beans because they are beautiful, delicious, protein-rich, nitrogen-fixing, and easy. His favorite thing about working on the farm is the beautiful people he gets to work with. Michael said one thing he has learned during his time out on the farm is how beautiful Indiana is.
When Michael isn't working on the farm he practices and teaches meditative arts including qigong, and can be found hiking and hugging trees. He works for decolonization and land restoration using traditional ecological knowledge.
Thanks for being a part of the team Michael!

📣📣MEET OUR TEAM📣📣

This is Tracy! She started helping us out last year washing the CSA bins and cleaning out the food shed every Saturday, and this year she has joined our crew full time.

Tracy's super excited to be a part of our team, and looks forward to using the knowledge she has gained from working out here to start her own garden. Her favorite thing to grow is peppers. Not only are they great for snacking, but harvesting them is an easy task as well.

If Tracy were to offer any advice to at home gardeners it would be to allow yourself the opportunity to listen and ask questions if you don't know something. She also mentioned how important it is to ask for help if the load is heavy.

Tracy's favorite thing about working at Hawkins is the people she gets to work with. She really enjoys telling people about the farm when they come to visit. If she were a vegetable she would be garlic because not only is garlic helpful in so many ways it's also very interesting and that is Tracy to a T!

We are grateful for Tracy and the work she does to keep the farm running.

On Monday, we hosted our first-ever fundraiser, the Local Food Throwdown in the wonderful joined spaces at Landing Beer Company and Utopian Coffee & Kitchen.

SUNDAY, 9/19 at 2pm - the local showing of a national PBS documentary featuring 3 northeast Indiana farms! Our segment features three culinary businesses: Gunthorp Farms, Hawkins Family Farm and Joseph Decuis Restaurant and their efforts to promote a healthy regional food economy, including their path to victory to #keepchickenonthemenu against troubling proposed state legislation in 2015. This documentary was inspired by the book, Welfare for the Rich: How your Tax Dollars End up in Millionaire’s Pockets - and What You Can Do About It, by Phil Harvey and Lisa Conyers. Join our celebration of local food by watching!

I have a friend interested in buying the veg share, but he is wondering about how much comes in it each week (so he can determine if 1 or 2 shares is best for his family)?

Radish kimchi lookin mighty fine 😎 Our fave, 2021 Good Food Foundation winner, perfect bite of crunchy spicy goodness. We make ours with Korean Radish aka Mu (무) from Hawkins Family Farm
My family of four was all very excited to be getting dinner from Junk Ditch Brewing Company during Savor Fort Wayne. What a great way to spruce up a weeknight! Junk Ditch does a great job preparing and even “plating” their carry out meals. Junk Ditch uses so many great local ingredients so we have tons to show you! Everyone in my family found something amazing and local on the Savor menu. We started with the GK Baked Goods famous Pretzel and Cheese from the first course menu, as well as the Butternut Squash Harissa Soup made with squash grown by Country Garden Farm & Market, Junk Ditch's own local farm. Such a warm and rich soup with squash as the shining star. Each of our entrees was outstanding! The Burger features Wood Farms beef and came with a perfectly cooked over easy egg. Crunchy slaw and a freshly baked GK bun topped off this burger perfectly. The egg came from Country Gardens and so did the amazing produce that went into the slaw and the pickles. The BBQ Chicken Pizza was perfect. This crust truly can’t be beat, so light and crispy. Hawkins Family Farm provides the tender grilled chicken found on the pizza. Country Gardens produce is featured as well, with thinly sliced jalapeño and cilantro adding great flavor. The Vegan Khoa Soi featured beautiful produce from Country Gardens. This dish was a Thai delight with crispy tofu, rice noodles and an amazing coconut broth. Add to that the thin sliced radish, Thai slaw and cilantro from Country Gardens and you’ve got one happy family doing Savor Fort Wayne carry-out style. The Pork Ramen was phenomenal. Gunthorp Farms pork helped to make a beautiful and incredibly savory broth. When the creamy egg yolk from the Country Garden egg hits the broth it creates something magical. The thinly sliced radish topped the dish perfectly. Since we were at home, we all took a long pause before we broke out the desserts. We were reminded once again why we love to eat at our great local restaurants. The cake and pie truly couldn’t be better, the creamiest frosting and the flakiest crust. Thanks, Junk Ditch!
Got our first Hawkins turkey this year and it is wonderful!
Thrilled to announce that our Radish Kimchi (my fave) and Spicy Napa Kimchi (everyone’s fave) are finalists for Good Food Foundation Awards! We were selected out of 1,928 entries after taste testing and vigorous vetting for sustainability. Winners will be announced January! Thank you to our farmers Hawkins Family Farm BroxonBerry Windrose Urban Farm for allowing us to source local produce for our kimchi.
