Farm to Fork: Indiana's First Farm to Fork and Feast Experience
Curious about where that food comes from that we all enjoy eating so much of?
The Noble County Visitors Bureau has teamed with our great agricultural producers to take you on a journey to tell the story of food. You will learn how it is raised, and even get a taste (if you like) of real and fresh food products that are raised right here in Noble County.
- Pick your own strawberries and blueberries near Wawaka.
- Enjoy a farmer's market in one of our communities, or explore how the third generation of the Owen Family near Avilla continues to be one of Indiana's largest Maple Syrup producers.
- Bison is still the main attraction at Cook's Bison Ranch in Wolcottville, and Dawn McCreery of Lavender Lane in Rome City is growing lavender to soothe your palette.
- Stop by Orchard Hill Farms just outside Kendallville for fresh picked apples, or shop their market store for locally produced honey, apple butter and more. With over 10,000 apple trees, this family-owned and operated farm is the single biggest apple producer in Noble County.
- The DeCamp Gardens still raise produce the old fashioned way at their garden outside Albion, and Fashion Farm in Ligonier transforms into Pumpkin Fantasyland every October. This family operation is home to Pumpkin Charley, and one visit during this magical time of year will tell you why.
- The new Country Heritage Winery and Vinyard will also make its opening debut in LaOtto this spring adding to northern Indiana's growing wine makers and producers, and rich diversity that is Noble County farms and producers.
