Family farm, restaurant sold, but will remain open

By The Associated Press

STARLIGHT — A popular southern Indiana tourist attraction will remain in business after relatives purchased a portion of the land at auction.

Most the 156-acre Joe Huber's Family Farm & Restaurant sold Saturday. A local businessman purchased much of the farmland in Starlight for $1.32 million.

But Huber family members spent $880,000 on a 31-acre plot that includes the restaurant that's known for its fried chicken and biscuits, and another 6.65-acre lot.

The land was sold after late founder Joe Huber Jr.'s four children decided to retire.

The News and Tribune reports that relative Jenna Huber Clem will run the eatery with her aunt and uncle.

The restaurant and pumpkin patch about 15 miles northwest of Louisville draw thousands of visitors each fall for company picnics, school field trips and family outings.
