Did you do a bit of a happy dance when the humidity finally broke and the hot Indiana summer weather was replaced with the cool, fresh breeze of an Indiana fall? What about when you saw the green in the trees start to give way to brilliant reds, yellows, and oranges? Or maybe it was when you started planning Halloween costumes for your family?
Maybe your family decided to make the most of the great weather we’ve had and visit one of the many orchards, ag experiences, or pumpkin patches that run through the month of October. Speaking of pumpkin patches, did you know that Indiana ranks 4th in the nation for pumpkin production? Not only that, but we also rank in the top 5 for the production of many other products including duck, ice cream, popcorn, eggs, hogs, tomatoes, corn, and soybeans!

Agriculture in Indiana is truly something special!
