2014 Indiana State Corn Husking Contest: Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Battle Ground, Indiana will be the corn husking capital of Indiana on Saturday, Oct. 4, 2014, as The Farm at Prophetstown will host the 2014 Indiana State Corn Husking Contest. The farm is located within Indiana’s newest state park: Prophetstown State Park. Prophetstown is located where the Tippecanoe River meets the Wabash River near the town of Battle Ground.

The Indiana State Hand Corn Husking Contest will be held on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This contest is open to all who enjoy old-fashioned corn husking. Participants in the timed contest husk corn from one row, throwing the ears into a horse-drawn wagon. The corn is then weighed and inspected for excess husks. Classes vary from 10 to 20 minutes.
