Twin Walnut Farm Premiere
Carmel Clay Public Library
Sunday October 29th
2:00pm – 4:00pm
Twin Walnut Farm received its name from the two stately walnut trees that rest on the side of the driveway of the farm. Bob Huber, owner of Twin Walnut Farm, was born and raised in Clarksville, Indiana. His grandfather, a tenant farmer, moved from Clarksville, Indiana to Clay Township, where Bob's father was born. His father later returned to the farm in Clarksville.
Bob's maternal great grandparents, the Browns, walked from North Carolina to Carmel and settled where John Kirk's Furniture store sits today on Pennsylvania Avenue in Carmel. They farmed oats, corn, and various livestock on an 80-acre farm.
Bob Huber began his obsession with farming when he received his first pig in 4H at the age of 10. He was a highly involved, energetic 4H’er, later raised 2-3 thousand hogs per year at and served as President of the Indiana Pork Producers Association. Today, he remains a shining example of a successful hog operation. At one-time Bob farmed 3,000 acres in Clay Township In the video, you will hear his wife, Judy, a city girl who had never lived on a farm, tell pig stories about getting stray pigs out of their pool and having pigs chew her clothes at the state fair. Follow Bob's inspirational story and career in agriculture in the premiere presented by the Clay Township Trustee and The OMNI Centre.
