Summer in Iowa means SWEET CORN!

Did you know that SWEET CORN has an even number of rows on each cob?


And on the average, an ear of SWEET CORN has 800 kernels in 16 rows?


Sweet Corn is a locally grown nutritious vegetable that is our July featured “Food of the Month”.


This traditional summer food is served at backyard barbeques and campgrounds across the Midwest and beyond.



Help support our local farmers and enjoy this summer treat!
