Halter Family Farm
We are a local family owned business located at 1926 N 6th, Vincennes,
Indiana. Currently five families are involved with the business.
The original Halters Market was located at 15th and Willow streets
in Vincennes and consisted of a local produce stand selling homegrown
produce while in season. In 1972 the location was moved to our
current location of 1926 N 6th St A home was purchased and a garage
was built facing 6th street to sell produce out of. A few years
later, flowers were added and sold well. In 1988, having outgrown
the small area we had, purchased adjourning property and built a
Quonset greenhouse. Sales increased, as we were able to have more
inventory in stock. In 1993 we expanded once again. We purchased
and additional 3 lots and built a new sales area and a double Quonset,
gutter connected greenhouse that attached to our sales area. We
quickly outgrew this greenhouse, and in 2005 built our current greenhouse.
It is Nexus glass greenhouse. This new greenhouse utilizes
natural ventilation, versus using fans, for cooling. The roof opens
40% for warm air to escape while cool air is brought in by vents
in the sidewall. This is all automated for a more enjoyable shopping
experience. When you step inside, the inside temperature is never
more than two or three degrees warmer than the outside air. This
ensures a quiet, peaceful, enjoyable shopping experience. As years passed
we quickly ran out of space in our new glass greenhouse, and in the fall of 2015
we added onto our Nexus greenhouse, making it even bigger and better.
Our upgraded greenhouse still uses natural ventilation, and allows us
more space to carry even more varieties of flowers.
