It’s corn season here in New Jersey. It’s the one summer vegetable that many of us love sinking our teeth into. Corn is a summer staple for most of us. I think it is pretty cool that our sweet Jersey corn is shipped all over the country. That’s pretty cool if you ask me. All told, we grow about 4oo-acres of sweet corn. That equates to a whole lot of corn. Even if you are missing out on our Jersey Fresh sweet corn, that’s ok. I encourage you to support your local farmer. Shop local. Eat local. You know the deal. Help support the farmers who put food on your table each day.

I will gently hop off my “support agriculture” soapbox now. (Thanks for listening.)
