Husk Sweet Corn is not just locally grown by local farmers, it’s also locally processed by local workers and locally sold by local grocers. Indiana dollars are kept in Indiana. Indiana’s rural communities are reviving. Indiana’s agriculture is returning to the center of culture.
With the consolidation of industrial food in the 20th century, Indiana was hurt badly. Production left the state for cheaper labor and seaport access. We thought it was great at first: food prices were held low, quality became constant, and grocery stores became one-stop-shops.
Then, the fall-out came. Jobs had left the state. Income opportunity in rural communities disappeared. We were exporting our natural resource: agriculture. And, every dollar spent at the grocery store was sent out of the state to the major food processors located elsewhere in the country.
At Husk, our mission is to reverse this process and revive our state’s agriculture economy. Will you join us?
