Bremen will be the corn husking capital of Indiana on Saturday October 5, as the Craig Geyer farm will host the Indiana corn husking contest.
The Indiana Hand Corn Husking Contest will be held on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This contest is open to all who enjoy old-fashioned corn husking. Participants in the timed contest husk corn from one row, throwing the ears into a horse-drawn wagon. The corn is then weighed and inspected for excess husks. Classes vary from 10 to 20 minutes.
The contests are open to both men and women of various age groups, from youth to Golden Agers. Team husking is a new event; four members husking for 5 minutes each.

The cost is $15 per person; spectators will be admitted at no charge. The Geyer farm is located at 20565 Tyler Road, Bremen, IN.
