Sweet Corn FAQ

When is your sweet corn season?

Sweet corn harvest typically begins the last week of July and runs through Labor Day weekend.  Our season is largely dependent on the weather though, so connect with us on social media or check the Recent Updates on the homepage for current information!

How should I store sweet corn until it’s eaten?  How long will it keep?

Sweet corn is best eaten the day it’s picked!  We recommend you purchase smaller quantities for immediate consumption if at all possible.  Keep the corn somewhere cool (refrigerator, basement, or garage) since heat causes the natural sugars in the corn to turn to starch.

How long should I cook my sweet corn?

Sweet corn can be cooked in a variety of ways.  We prefer to boil our corn using the method below.  Whatever method you use, be careful not to overcook the corn.  Remember, heat causes the natural sugars to turn to starch!

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Place the sweet corn in the boiling water.
  3. Cook for 3 minutes and remove promptly.
How do I freeze sweet corn?

We love to freeze sweet corn to enjoy all winter long!  We prefer to use plastic freezer bags since they lay flat in the freezer and thaw quickly.

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Place the ears in the boiling water.
  3. Cook for 2-3 minutes and remove promptly.
  4. Place ears in an ice bath to stop the cooking process.
  5. Drain water from ears.  (We use a cooling rack!)
  6. Cut the kernels off the ears and place in freezer bags.
