Nothing says summer like corn on the cob!
Our sweet corn is available from late July to September. Several fresh-picked varieties are available daily, depending on the season, but we guarantee they’re all delicious.
Did you know? When we refer to “sweet corn,” we’re not just bragging about how delicious our corn is (although it really is tasty). A friend of ours once nicked a few gorgeous, big cobs that were hanging over the farmer’s fence (with every intention of paying back their neighbour, of course) and had a bad surprise when they realized at dinner time that they’d stolen inedible cow corn. Only about 1% of corn grown is eaten by humans. Sweet corn is harvested when it is soft and easy to eat. Cow corn, or field corn, is a different type of corn used to feed animals that isn’t harvested until it becomes very dry and hard on the stalk.
