Halderman Real Estate and Farm Management announced as 2020 Business of the Year

Wabash County, IN __Grow Wabash County is thrilled to announce that Halderman Real Estate and Farm Management has been selected as the 2020 Business of the Year.

Halderman will be celebrated for this achievement during Grow Wabash County’s Annual Dinner Celebration on Thursday, Oct. 8, at the Honeywell Center.

“We are honored to announce Halderman Real Estate and Farm Management as our 2020 Grow Wabash County Business of the Year,” said Keith Gillenwater, President and CEO of Grow Wabash County.  “The Halderman family not only run an amazing business that supports agriculture across the country, they are truly servant leaders in our community, donating their time, treasure, and talents to making our community a place all of us want to call home.  There is no more deserving business for this award than Halderman Real Estate and Farm Management.”

The company was founded under its original name, Halderman Farm Management Service, Inc., in 1930 out of the home of Howard H. Halderman and his wife, Marie, right here in Wabash. Over the past several decades, the two-person operation has expanded to employ more than 30 employees that work to manage over 650 farms across 19 states as well as two countries. As a result, Halderman is now one of the largest family-owned professional farm management and real estate organizations in the United States.

“Throughout our 90 years, our employees blessed our clients with exceptional service, strong loyalty and built an excellent reputation,” Howard Halderman, President of Halderman Real Estate and Farm Management and third generation owner of the company, said. “Grow Wabash County’s Business of the Year award is a reflection on our entire team of professionals and administrative staff. It is a humbling honor and we are so thankful to be a part of the Wabash Community! Wabash is our service hub, the center point of our business and home for our family.”

This year’s Annual Celebration Dinner will look different from years prior. Grow Wabash County and the Honeywell Foundation have worked hard to adjust logistics for this event in a way that allows for our community to celebrate the hardest workers in Wabash County while also being mindful of the health and safety of our guests.

Grow Wabash County will be utilizing multiple spaces within the Honeywell Center, including the Ford Theatre, during the plated dinner and award presentations to ensure that proper social distancing measures are being followed throughout the evening.
