This year, in our Market, sweet corn is pre packaged in quantities of 2 cobs, 6 cobs, dozens or 4 dozen bags. Please do not open or husk in the Market. We are making these changes in an effort to promote social distancing and safeguard the wellness of our customers.
Let’s harken back to our beginnings, when fresh sweet corn was first sold in Howard and Elsie Herrle’s garage, in 1964! For those customers who wish to pick there own sweet corn out of a bin, in any quantity, the Garage is open weekdays 11-4, and weekends 10 – 4! The Garage is located just outside of our Market, on the East side, and will feature sweet corn, as well as a few other fresh summer favourites like peaches, tomatoes, canteloupe and beans.

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 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.
