Joe Huber’s Family Farm & Restaurant

After running an ad in the newspaper in 1967 that read, “Pick Your Own Green Beans,” Joe and Bonnie Huber launched an idea that would become a permanent fixture when you visit Joe Huber’s Family Farm & Restaurant.

Located in Starlight, Indiana, just about an hour from Indianapolis and a half hour from Louisville, Joe Huber’s allows its visitors to “pick their own” seasonal produce right off the trees and vines; strawberries, peaches, apples, pumpkins, and more.

But the whole operation moved forward when it looked back to its rich roots to open the restaurant in 1983 and began to serve the same type of food that the Mary Huber served back in the 1920’s.

Homey comfort food that takes you back to your mama’s kitchen is served family style on their most popular dish “The Country Platter,” which includes Fried Chicken, Huber Honey Ham, Mashed Potatoes, Chicken & Dumplings, Green Beans, Corn, Fried Biscuits with Apple Butter, German Slaw & Waldorf Salad.

This family style offering is served on individual platters that are passed around your table making this the perfect spot for the whole family to gather to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and more!

But the family fun doesn’t end at your dining table.

After filling your bellies with great food, walk it off on the grounds of the farm and take the kids to visit the barnyard play yard and the pond where they can feed the ducks and fish; also keep an eye out for the turtles that will swim right up to you to say hi!

Make sure to leave additional time on your schedules to visit the farm market, gift shop, and soda pop shoppe.

In the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives, we tend to lose ourselves and what is most important.

With roots that date back to 1843, Joe Huber’s Family Farm & Restaurant is the perfect place to escape your day to day, be reminded of that good ole country hospitality, and get re-centered with your family values as you gather around the table in a laid-back, relaxing atmosphere.

Fun Fact – Joe Huber’s hosts several family-friendly events throughout the year including an Annual Cops for Kids Car Show, Annual Balloon Glow & Craft Fair, Movie Nights Under the Stars, An Easter Egg Hunt, and more!
