In the old days in this part of the country, if you had a cow, a sow, and a hen, you could survive.

From the cow came the milk and butter; from the sow the bacon, lard, and hams; and from the hen, eggs.

As East Texas became more and more affluent, we reminded ourselves and our customers – “Don’t forget the cow, the sow, and the hen.”
