NORTH MANCHESTER -- Thanks to legislation signed into law Monday, March 21, local poultry farmer Jeff Hawkins can keep chicken on the menu. 
 
The new policy comes after a long battle between state health officials and Hawkins’ family farm in rural Wabash County. 
 
The J.L. Hawkins Family Farm is a 99-acre farm that raises and butchers about 200 birds per week during its busy season. Hawkins sells his birds to local restaurants that specialize in locally-sourced foods. The farm’s customers include KenapocoMocha Coffee Shop in North Manchester; Joseph Decuis in Roanoke; and Cerulean in Winona Lake.
