Harry Eby had a vision to create an Evergreen Plantation. Now, more than
 three family generations have been caring for the trees and land leading to
 an 800 acre tree farm, with three quarters of a million trees. Eby’s is now
 the largest grower of Christmas trees in the state of Indiana. In 1980, Eby’s
 won the Grand Champion Grower award from the National Christmas Tree
 Association (NCTA) for its White Pine, which gave Eby’s the honor of
 providing a Christmas tree to the White House. Mrs. Carter was there
 to shake hands with Harry Eby and accept the 18’ Douglas Fir Tree.
