Hoosier Handmade

Acker Farm LLC is a proud sponsor of the Hoosier Handmade!

We started hosting an All Handmade Craft Fair as a place to showcase our products and then invited our crafty friends to this juried show to create a unique market and special shopping experience AND a way to give back to groups within our community!  You will find one-of-a-kind, quality handmade or hand-embellished items - all unique and made with love!
