Why Is My Corn Topless?

May 26, 2012
We’re excited to include the first round of organic Texas sweet corn from Gundermann Acres in Wharton County, TX in the co-op style produce shares this weekend!  You’ll notice something different right away though – the corn will have the tops cut off.  Why?  Well, worms love sweet corn.  That’s why most non-organic corn is heavily sprayed with chemicals.  However, the corn you’ll be getting is organic, and our farmers do their best to slow the worms from getting to the corn, but they still eat the tops sometimes.  So the corn tops are chopped off.

Basically, it’s a telltale sign of organic corn to see the tops chopped off, because worms cannot survive on sprayed corn!
