While we’ve been selling sweet corn since 1999, our fifth-generation family farm dates back more than 125 years! Located in Tipton County, Indiana, Dad took over the farm in 1965 when his dad passed away. Over the more than 50 years that Dad has been farming, he has primarily been a grain farmer, raising corn, soybeans, and most recently, sweet corn.
Most of all, My Dad’s Sweet Corn is a labor of love from Dad and Mom. Every Friday night, all the family gathers with friends and neighbors to pick sweet corn until sunset. Then, in one of her many roles as nurse, cheerleader, secretary, and cook, Mom fixes dinner for all of us. The operation couldn’t succeed without her! We all work very hard, but in a strange kind of way, it is what my family does for fun!
Our business has definitely been a gradual metamorphosis and not an overnight success. There are always factors that we just can’t control…many of them! We always do the best we know and pray about the rest.
All of us feel blessed to be part of a wonderful family led by a unique and wonderful dad. On behalf of myself, big brother Andrew, and little sister Betsy, we thank you all for your continued business and support. We appreciate each and every one of our customers. You have been so supportive and encouraging to Dad and his team. We certainly couldn’t do it without you!
