  • Backyard chickens are a homesteading staple. But how do we make them work for us–and can you raise animals other than chickens? Come talk turkey (and duck, and guinea fowl), and find out how our hard-working flock puts eggs on the table. Hawthorn Farm raises hundreds of birds every year–without ever cleaning a chicken coop, and while adding fertility to our pastures and compost. If you’ve ever wanted to crack open a golden-yolked egg from your own flock, bring your questions!

    About Hawthorn Farm

    Alexia Allen and Daniel Kirchhof have been feasting together at Hawthorn Farm since 2010. They spent all of 2017 eating only hand-harvested food and continue to develop their Woodinville farm to feed the community great year-round produce. With years of experience between them doing carpentry, animal husbandry, food preserving, and gardening, they find joy in sharing hard-won common sense. Teaching is a passion for them both. Join them in practicing essential skills to build resilient communities! Click to learn more about Hawthorn Farm.
