About our Corn Varieties. . .
We developed five lines of Open Pollinated corn, each with its own maturity range and physical characteristics. All lines were developed using our practices of isolating independent lines, then planting these lines at extremely high populations. Those plants unable to stand and thrive were pulled out to limit their effect on the overall population. That is why we recommend that you buy seed the first season and then save your own seed, if you wish, for two more generations. After these three cropping ears come back to us for an upgraded line, as we continue to improve these lines every year! This puts your corn seed cost very – very affordable!!
All products developed were guided in their production to minimize if not eliminate “GMO” contamination, be available for seed saving, and to be the top flavor for finished products for human consumption. We want you to enjoy our products as one of your wholesome food sources. Our second thoughts were for livestock production benefits
Note: Test weights for these 4 done by the local co-op last year ranged from 56.5 to over 60 pounds per bushel, (target is 56). Testing completed by Wisconsin Crop Improvement Association in 2015 and 2016 has verified that, after more than 15 years of development, all our varieties are free of all 20+ GMO markers they test for. Nutrition testing in 2015 and 2016 have identified protein levels above 10%. Please contact us if you would like copies of these reports.
This 96 day corn grows to between 10 and 12 feet tall. It is an early flowering line that will have a pollen shed time of roughly 10 to 11 days in our plantings. Plant at 27 – 28,000 shooting for a final population of 24,000. Primary ears should be 7 to 14 inches in length, and from 8 to 13 rows. Secondary ears of smaller size are common. Projected yield this year of 1⁄2 # corn per plant at 24000 plants final = 12000 lbs or 200 bu per acre. I will be well pleased with 160 bu. per acre. Works well for early silage, cattle feed, and/or milling for corn flour.
Drawbacks of this population. The deer and varmints love this line. Harvest at 19 to 20 percent moisture, and start to monitor moisture levels early. If you are used to working with dent corns, this shiny/dimple corn will fool you on moisture content. Most people guess moisture levels of high 20’s, when it is actually 16 or 17%. Still throws some dark colored ears – Roughly 4 to 5% yet this year. Suggest use for your own feed on the farm.
We call this a 107 day corn, which grows from 11 to 15 feet tall. Leaf base is up to 4 and 3⁄4’s inches wide, ears are carried high, so late windy Octobers will cause this population to go down somewhat. Very colorful giving a high nutrient content from the tests we have done so far. Exceptional silage corn. Great for grain - livestock feed, and bale the stalks for bedding, and also for human milling grain. Cultural practices and comments are the same as for our yellow population. Expect yields this year of about 140 bushel per acre, but this is 3rd year corn on corn as we re-invent the rotations and strip cropping areas for this farm.
This open pollinated popcorn population was chosen for its taste primarily. Our customers tell us it has a buttery / salty flavor even through an air popper with no butter or salt added!! Can plant this at about 30,000 and we get almost 1 and 1⁄2 8 inch ears per plant. Will sell in pound lots, with discounts for quantities over 100 pounds. Seed or food!
We feel this is a 102 day corn. If you want anti-oxidants, this is the population for you! Check on the pound for pound comparison of dry blueberries to dry blue corn. You’ll be amazed!! Plant type similar to the yellow and the red combined. Seems to have a fair color in the ground flour for making blue corn chips.
Our first product to market. The large white kernels are excellent for some African countries' dishes, and for hominy here in the US. Makes a beautiful white corn flour. Limited supply yet this year. Similar to the red corn in plant growth type. Excellent silage corn for yield and quality.
