At Strom's we are freshness fanatics!
We pride ourselves in only the freshest produce and
are known for exceptional sweet corn. Your sweet corn
is picked fresh throughout the day (never more than
2 hours off the stalk) and we only pick the top cob
(a stalk has 2). We recommend eating your corn the day
you pick it up.
Place husked corn in boiling water. Once
it begins to boil again, cook for 4 minutes.
Do not add salt (toughens it) or sugar to the water.
Our Shuckin' Shack is a great place to
husk your corn and leave the mess at the farm.
Traveling: Pack your sweet corn in a cooler with ice.
Sweet corn will taste good for 2-3 days if kept at refrigerator
temperature. If you will be leaving early in the morning,
buy your corn the evening before the trip and ice it
Peaches and Cream
We've been letting our customers in on the secret
of Peaches and Cream for years. Many road-side stands
offer "Peaches and Cream". The truth is that
they are most likely passing off any bi-colour variety
they get in as "Peaches and Cream". Peaches
and Cream was a variety produced in small garden envelopes
for backyard growers. It never made it to commercial
production, but somehow the name did. If you ask for
Peaches and Cream at Strom's, you're likely to be corrected!
Don't be offended, just smile and nod your head: they
like talking about corn.
