Hyde’s Hen House in La Vernia is the recipient of a 2015 Governor’s Small Business Award, following selection for this recognition by the La Vernia Municipal Development District (MDD) board of directors.

Owner Dana Hyde accepted the award March 17, during the Governor’s Small Business Forum: Business Opportunities in the Eagle Ford Shale Region in the La Vernia High School auditorium.

“Dana Hyde exemplifies the spirit of entrepreneurship and has the qualities of a determined small business owner,” said Jennifer Kolbe, La Vernia MDD executive director, adding that Dana has been a pleasure to work with. “The road was not always easy, but she did her research and is fulfilling La Vernia’s need for women’s clothing, shoes, accessories, and housewares. We were also pleased that she tapped into our façade grant program and turned what once was a tired residence into a charming boutique.”

Hyde’s Hen House is located at 130 Bluebonnet Road (F.M. 775), across from the Brahan Masonic Lodge. For information, call 830-779-5222 or find them on Facebook at

The Governor’s Small Business Forums provide entrepreneurs and small businesses with valuable tools, skills, and knowledge needed to thrive in today’s fast-paced economy.
