The Hawkesville Len’s Mill Store opened in January, 1991. It has been doing great thus far due to all our wonderful customers who travel locally or from across the province as well as shoppers visiting the famous tourist town of St. Jacobs. Lens is situated only minutes from the well-known St. Jacobs Farmers Market. It can be described as the "City store in the country setting."
The population of Hawkesville is around 150 people. There is a gorgeous view of the Conestoga River as you drive from St. Jacobs to the Hawkesville store. Many customers tell us “It was worth the drive to Hawkesville.
Hawkesville is well noted for its "back-in-time-era" as travelers drive along and watch the Mennonites work the land with their horses. People are drawn to Hawkesville for its charm and hospitality. While shopping at our store you will see the horse and buggies as many of our customers are local.
