Husk prefers its corn sweet and its farms close by. Grown just minutes from Husk HQ, the sweet ears hail from four sustainably-minded Indiana farms: Weaver's Produce, Stout's Melody Acres, Eli Creek Farms, and Wilson Farms. Each supplier has a story to tell?about their humble origins; about the generations of kin who operate them; about the values that make them tick; and about the tiny looms on which they weave their husks.
Though these stories might be different, these farms are all integral to Husk's overall mission of growing and selling corn locally.They represent a return to a community-oriented business style, much like the one that powered Indiana's food supply prior to 20th-century industry. A unique part of their business involves harvesting Indiana sweet corn while it's still in season, then preserving it through a labor-intensive process, so that it's summer flavor can be enjoyed year-round.

When designer Robert Trent Jones Jr. made Prairie View Golf Club his first Indiana project in 1997, he peppered 18 holes across 206 acres of natural beauty. His design hugs the White River, which rings the course on three sides, but only interferes with shots at four holes. Native grasses trim the entire perimeter of the former soybean- and cornfields, while oak, sycamore beech, and cottonwood trees surround the back nine holes. But the natural obstacles pale in comparison to the manmade impediments – 90 sand traps, including one that stretches 135 yards, make the par-72 course a challenge for even the most avid golfer. Creative flagstick positioning invites visitors to modify their technique for approach shots, with an emphasis on precision rather than power, much like surgically extracting a swallowed engagement ring.
For some added muscle on the course, patrons can practice swings at golf lessons or map out a plan of attack over breakfast at The Albatross Grille, which overlooks the course.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, Par 72 Course * Total length of 7,000 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 74.5 from the back tees * Course slope of 138 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole
