Sweet CornIMG_1679 2

We have been growing great tasting sweet corn for years. This is one of our signature crops at the market. In 1987 we planted a small field of silver queen corn and later switched to Silverado, then to Silver King and now we are very proud of our Silver Dollar. We think this is the best tasting sweet corn you can grow. We try small plots of new corn every year to try to keep up with the latest varieties. We learned that corn sugar increases and decreases as the day goes by and that the corn will actually be the sweetest if picked in the early morning. The year we switched from picking late in the evening to early in the morning we had so many compliments that we never went back to evening picking. Come try our corn and you will love our sweet corn also. All of our corn is white and we start picking around the 4th of July and will have corn through September.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes ready for saleRed Slicing Tomatoes – A great tasting home grown, high acid and juicy tomato. Some of red tomatoes are so big that we call them loaf tomatoes because it takes and entire slice of bread to cover the tomato.

Pink Tomatoes – Much less acidic than our red tomatoes; they tend to have a sweeter taste and are very delicate. People really go nuts for this one.

Yellow Tomato – Even less acid than the pink one!

Green Tomato – We had customers ask us to bring in green tomatoes to fry and it took off from there. A lot of our customers love our green tomatoes also green tomato relish. If you have never had green tomato relish with pinto beans, you should try it.
