Deardorff Sweet Corn

The Deardorff family farm | 370 acres | Adel, Iowa

Our sweet corn is hand-picked in the morning and delivered to the store in refrigerated trucks that same day. Freshness and consistent quality are always our top priority. I have been growing sweet corn for nearly 30 years, and my son Matt has joined me to keep our corn available for many years to come.” – Ron Deardorff.
