HUBER’S ORCHARD & WINERY’S 175TH ANNIVERSARY

Starlight, Indiana – Huber’s Orchard and Winery is excited to announce the celebration of their 175th anniversary this year!  The Huber homestead, founded in 1843 by Simon Huber, has diversified into a multi-generational business now being led by 6th & 7th generation family members.  There’s lots to celebrate and the team at Huber’s Orchard & Winery has some fun stories to share and activities to experience for all guests that visit on Friday, June 15th from 10am-6pm.

Our festivities will begin with a Welcome Ceremony and Press Conference at 10:00am.  Join us on the Patio at Huber’s as we hear first-hand from our very own farmers, vintners, winemakers, family members & community leaders about the history of the farm and how this small family business diversified from their very humble beginnings. 

The fun will continue all day until close at 6:00pm, with plenty of opportunities to eat, drink, and play.  A 175th Anniversary Celebration Passport will be offered to all guests that visit on Friday.  This passport invites you to explore the many lines of business at Huber’s, with discounts and special offers at each stop along the way.  Enjoy a discount in our Farmer’s Market, complimentary tours in our Winery & Distillery, and free admission to Huber’s Farm Park just to name a few of the family-friendly activities.  There will also be Anniversary cake, live music, and drawings throughout the day for 175th Anniversary commemorative merchandise! 

While reflecting on the 175 years of heritage and farming tradition, 6th Generation co-owners, Greg & Ted Huber appreciate the deep roots that the previous generation established.  Greg is grateful for “being able to work with his family and pass [the tradition] on to another generation.”  Ted recalls the long work days growing up and remains “thankful for the strong work ethic, pride, and opportunity his parents passed onto him.”  First cousins and business partners, this duo has grown this family destination business into one of the largest tourist attractions in the regional area. 

A lot can happen in four decades. When Simon Huber settled the Huber Farm he couldn’t possibly have envisioned what the future would hold for this family-driven enterprise.  The Huber family is thankful for our guests, community, family, and friends that have supported us throughout the years.  We hope that you will join us on June 15th as we kickoff our 175th Anniversary celebration that will last all year long!
