Sweet Corn- non GMO and organically grown

This year we are growing Sweet Corn! Farmer Anthony and John are taking this task on for the first time. We are using is a non-GMO seed from Johnny’s Organic’s Seeds in NJ. As always, it will be grown with organic methods.

One of the challenges we face when growing this crop in this region is the earworm. This menace eats the husk (ear) of the developing corn and can ruin a whole harvest if we don’t act in time. One of the  differences with planting Non-GMO corn is dealing with these pests in a more natural way. GMO corn is modified so that the plant is resistant to Roundup Spray. This means that when a whole field is sprayed, the plant doesn’t get damaged along the way and all the pests die off. We are also trying out a biodegradable row cover to prevent weeds.

Sine we haven’t sprayed the corn fields with anything at all, a lot of our harvest has been compromised with bugs. We are selling 6 ears for $3 at the Farm Store, it does need some TLC before cooking! Cleaning and cutting off the edges where the ear worm did damage. It is worth the work if we may say so, so sweet and delicious, yum.
