Sweet corn

In Waterloo Region, our farm is known for our fresh from the field sweet corn. It is our signature product. We grow over 120 acres of sweet corn and pick it fresh daily, because freshness makes the difference!

  • We grow only non GMO sweet corn
  • We harvest our sweet corn from mid July to mid October, weather permitting

We grow yellow and bicolour varieties that fall into two main classifications:

Sugary Enhanced: sweet & tender (20-30% sugar content) Best eaten fresh!

Gourmet Sweet: very sweet & tender (30-50% sugar content) Can be refrigerated for up to a week.

  • We recommend cooking our sweet corn by placing it in boiling water for 5-7 minutes.
  • All of our sweet corn bins are labeled with the variety name, colour and classification.
  • Orders of 5 dozen or more can be placed by calling 519-886-7576.
