Jacob Horrall
Melon Acres, Inc
Oaktown, Indiana
Class IV

Jacob Horrall has a strong background as a farmer beginning with his family farm. There has never been anything else he wanted to do. He is on the National Watermelon Promotion Board, Member of NWA and IWA, and is President of SWIM (Southwest Indiana Melon & Vegetable Growers, Inc). Jacob also attended Purdue University and obtained his bachelor in AG System Management with a minor in Farm Management. Through these experiences, he has a good grasp on the grower/shipper responsibilities and management. Jacob joined the FWFL Program because he wants a better understanding of the whole industry outside of his extended knowledge at the farm.  
"I enjoy what we do and would like to learn more about the watermelon industry. Being a part of the Future Watermelon Farm Leaders Program will allow me to further grow my skills and develop into the best grower I can be."
