Agriculture / Food Processing

Agriculture plays a vital role in Indiana’s economy. With more than 53,000 farms totaling over 15 million acres of farmland, Indiana is a leading producer of corn, soybeans, hogs, poultry, popcorn, and tomato products.

More than 16 percent of Indiana’s workforce is connected to agriculture, food and forestry, which yield products resulting in a $25 billion addition to the state economy each year.

Water supply is also a key component to supporting agriculture and food processing – and Henry County has significant water resources to support new investment in these sectors.

Indiana’s natural environment and commitment to industry support make it an ideal location for agricultural business opportunities.
