Hafrskegg’s Hamlet is a small farmstead located near LaVernia Texas (30 miles south of San Antonio). Though our farm is small we try to use everything available, to be as self-sustaining as possible. We have a large garden and grow a lot of fresh vegetables. We raise both Oberhasli and French Alpine dairy goats. A Jersey/Dexter dairy cow. We also have Gulf Coast Native sheep, Nigora and Angora goats for fiber. Chickens and turkeys for eggs and meat. Work horses for riding and driving.
Our goal is to be a teaching farm. To teach others the skills we have and to learn all we can at the same time. And also to learn new things others might know that we don’t.
We are a Christian family. Our hope is to show love and share knowledge with all regardless of religion, race, color or creed. All we ask is that if your beliefs differ from ours is that mutual respect is shown. We welcome questions about our belief’s and life though.
Things we can teach…
- Gardening and growing
- Cooking farm to table style
