Corn is a grain that was first domesticated by indigenous people in Mesoamerica, and is now the most widely grown crop in the Americas. The seeds, or kernels, are used in cooking as a vegetable, even though they are technically a fruit. In 2009, the U.S. produced 332 million metric tons of corn! (Read more on Wikipedia.)

One ear of corn yields about 111 calories and provides a good amount of fiber, thiamin, vitamin C, and folate. Corn is also rich in many antioxidants and can help control blood sugar and support healthy digestion.

Corn is best eaten immediately. It can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days with the husk still intact.

Because synthetic pesticides are not applied, worm damage is normal and part of the organic growing process. The worms pose no harm and the damage is usually isolated to the tip of the corn. So that you do not miss out on one of summer’s finest eating experiences, you can simply chop off the tip with the worm. Our growers go to great lengths to minimize this, and we do our best to inspect for worm damage, but occasionally one will make its way into an order. Should you have an issue with your corn or any other aspect of your delivery, please contact us and we will make it up to you.
