Double Standard

Bicolour


This is a modern variety, with both white and yellow kernels on each sweet cob. We're very pleased with it as it seems quite diverse, with a good genetic base, so it should do well on different soils and conditions. Not only are the dual coloured cobs pretty, they also taste really good.  2nd year of growing out.

Fisher's Earliest

Early, beautiful and delicious! For quality and old fashioned true corn flavour, we’ve found Fisher’s to be the best open-pollinated sweet corn variety in our trials. Kernels are well-lined in 10-12 rows with excellent tip fill and husk cover. Ears average 6” long. Vigorous, multi-coloured stalks of red and green reach 5-6’ with usually one ear per plant sitting 18” high on stalk. Selected over sixty years ago for short seasons and high altitudes by Ken Fisher of Fisher’s Seeds in Belgrade, MT. Our 2nd year of growing out.

Ashworth

Unique among open-pollinated corn varieties. Fred Ashworth called it “rat selected” because it came from the bin most preferred by rats. Maturing with the first of the early hybrids, Ashworth gives rise to plump, well-filled 6-7” ears of bright-yellow corn with the best of old-fashioned corn flavour. Our 3rd year of growing out.

Corn

Golden Bantam Improved

Corn is not as yet a major production item on the farm - but will become so now we have some good open pollinated seed to work with.

Growing Corn for seed takes dedication - as it is wind pollinated we have to separate varieties by time and distance. Luckily in our valley, the wind for 99% of the time is North - South, so separation from one end of the farm (East - West) takes care of one problem. The other is taken care of by planting enough at different times to account for the vagaries of weather and temperature so the silks dry off on one variety before the pollen from the next variety becomes available.
