All Ears at Johnson’s Farm Produce in Hobart
Did you know that the sugar in corn begins to turn to starch as soon as it is picked? The longer you keep it around, the less sugar it will have when you eat it – thus losing its flavor. That’s why Rodney and Virginia Johnson never sell sweet corn that hasn’t been picked the same day.
The third-generation farming family owns and operates one of the largest garden centers and produce stands in Indiana. Johnson’s Farm Produce is located in Hobart with a second location on Highway 30 in Valparaiso. On their 350 acres, the Johnsons grow several crops, including sweet corn, which they pick three to four times a day to ensure they’re selling the kernel at its sweetest.
Stop by on Saturdays in July when the Johnsons cook and give away free ears. To learn more, visit the Johnsons’ website.
