In the densely populated and rapidly changing environment of modern day Marion County, it is difficult to imagine that the local landscape of sprawling neighborhoods, noisy streets, and bustling commerce was mostly prime Indiana farmland less than a century ago. The history of agriculture in our community is as rich as the soil that lies beneath it. Waterman’s Family Farm has worked tirelessly for generations to preserve that history by providing a reliable supply of healthy, fresh produce as well as making the small farm experience accessible to the larger public. The desire to build a lasting relationship with the surrounding community inspired the Waterman’s to begin hosting the popular Fall Harvest Festival. From a simple beginning with hayrides to the pumpkin patch and a teepee made of cornstalks, it has grown into a five week celebration and one of the highlights of autumn in Indianapolis complete with games, rides, music, food and all kinds of farm fun. In addition to the Fall Harvest Festival, a Strawberry Festival has begun to emerge as a new tradition for Waterman’s Family Farm. The Strawberry Festival celebrates the arrival of the farm’s lovely strawberries and welcomes the community back for the opening of a new picking season.
