It consumes our days now...but that's a great thing! It's a family business, and it takes the whole family (and then some) to keep it going!
Our corn is hand sorted and fed into an electronic bagger, under the careful supervision ofIt's fed from the trailer to the conveyor belt, onto the sorter.
too many bosses :).
We use our hands as much as possible to keep from bruising the ears. Oh, hey, Kolton!
Mr. Greenthumb has another trailer load waiting to be sorted!
It gets loaded onto the trailer, by the bushel bag and paper bagged by the dozen.
We take our work very seriously ~ no time for fun here!
This is a bushel (six-dozen) bag. It's all the rage!

Now for the good part! For grilling, soak the ears for at least 10 minutes...
...then throw them on the grill for 10-15 minutes and enjoy!
For a quick snack, you can microwave an ear, husk and all, for 3 minutes! If you husk it for boiling, this golden treat only needs to boil for 2 minutes!
That's the business...and that's the family!
Gotta get back to work ~ we've got 5 weeks to go :)
