Take some time and look into the food you put into your body. Have you found any local farms near you? Have you been second guessing on the quality of product you are feeding to your family? If you’re near Crown Point, Indiana… look no further …
Wonder down US 241 about 15 minutes outside of Crown Point square and you will find yourself in another world. A world where animals roam free and farmers are tending to their crops and livestock. Some farm for trade and some just for pure self-sustainability. Luckily the family at Howe Farms are more than welcoming to their land.
