Attn ladies: come see this crew today. They’re all #farmstrong and loaded with sweetness. You may however need to bring a bar of soap. They’re a bit muddy and 🦨 after this mornings picking. Be sure to thank these good men; we appreciate their help greatly.

07/09/2021

We’re a bit delayed picking this morning. We aim to be at the stand by 10:00.

Sold out today. Ya’ll are like a bunch of bad raccoons; you get into the patch then go tell all your buddies how good it is. Go ahead, be bad. 🦝 🌽 👩‍🌾 🙏

And we’re set. Come and get it. The boys did well and picked a load to last for the day.

07/06/2021

We will be selling Wed, Thurs and Friday this week. Regardless of the entertainment value, there is no need to fight for it all on Wednesday. We’ll aim to have a load ready by 10:00 each day; most likely it’ll be by 9:00 but give us amateur pickers a breather as we start the season.
This is not freezer/canner corn so don’t buy in bulk if you’re desiring the sweetest and biggest ears for cutting off. There will be LOTS of corn available over the next two months. The best varieties are yet to come.

Growing season update on this Memorial Weekend...
After his last day of school this past Wednesday, the junior Johnson planted some more Iowa sugar seeds. We now have 4 plantings, 3 of which are emerged. The first variety planted on April 4 is undoubtly the tallest corn you’ll find anywhere in the area. Let’s get some heat going and we’ll see how fast it can make it to your dinner table.
