Time Flies When You’re Bagging Corn!

These Fuhrmann grandkids are five years older and still bagging corn with a smile.

Come by and see us Saturday morning as we count down our final days. We anticipate this being our last weekend and wrapping up the 2019 season by mid-week.

We will be at the road side stand starting at 8:00 a.m. one mile West of Lindsay on the South side of Hwy 82.

The Sweetest Reward

When you spend a long hot day picking and bagging corn, you get to set aside the biggest and BEST ear of corn all for yourself. It is one of the many rewards of being a Fuhrmann corn picker.

We will be back at the road side stand Monday morning and look forward to seeing you then.

Stop by and get your freshly picked (and bagged) corn today!

 

 

 

Sweet Corn Saturday

Just in time for the weekend. We will have fresh picked sweet corn on Saturday.

See you at the road side stand starting as early as 8:00 a.m. one mile West of Lindsay on the South side of Hwy 82.

Taking A Break

Our trailers are parked and we are taking a break as we wait for the fourth and final field to be ready.

We hope you have a safe and memorable Independence Day celebration and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Shuck it, Cut it, Bag it, Freeze It

We all love fresh corn on the cob in the summer, but the season for fresh corn only lasts so long. The next best thing is to freeze your corn and ensure you have a taste of summer all year round. How do you prepare your corn for freezing?

We have fresh picked corn awaiting you at the road side stand. Come get yours today!

You Want It. We’ve Got It.

We will be back at the road side stand Thursday morning. Come out and see us for your first, second, or even third time this season. Too good to resist and always room for more! See you soon.

It’s A Sweet Saturday After All

I listened to my father debate with himself for 26 minutes before I finally asked him to just make a decision and let me off the phone already. My brothers were in separate tractors/combines and apparently not available to talk. Lucky me, I feel a bit stressed myself right about now.

It is next week’s forecast of rain that is forcing the decision on whether to pick corn on Saturday or to take a chance on the weather and hope for the best.

Nonetheless, the decision has been made and it will definitely be a sweet Saturday after all. We look forward to seeing you at the roadside stand starting at 8:00 a.m. or shortly thereafter. We are located one mile West of Lindsay on the South side of Hwy 82.

 

 

Sweet Reaction

We began our season a little slow amidst the rain and mud. Now we are ready to officially get this season started.

We will be at the roadside stand Thursday 8:00 a.m. (or shortly thereafter) and look forward to seeing you then. We also look forward to your sweet reactions!

Strikingly Sweet

You might be wondering if our admin quit or has been on strike this season being there have been little to no updates on the corn.

Rest assured there is no strike. As a matter of fact, there isn’t even an admin, technically speaking. Simply a gal who volunteers her time updating social media on behalf of her father and two brother’s corn growing adventures.

The way I see it, if said father and brothers fail to update this gal because of all the uncertainties around farming, than it is this gal’s prerogative to refuse to update corn enthusiasts. Am I to post, “Not a clue, your guess is as good as mine”? Believe me, it has crossed my mind. Or what about, “Here is the physical address of the corn field, go see for yourself and let me know so I can update others.” That could be interesting.

Funny enough, this gal received a call from her father on Father’s Day. Upon answering the phone he proceeded to update me the rain and this week’s forecast concerns. Not only did he seem hesitant to update me on tomorrow’s plans, he was extremely hesitant.

Per my father, they will be attempting to pick corn by hand tomorrow morning starting at 8:00 a.m. If all goes as planned, they should be at the road side stand by 9:00 a.m. or shortly thereafter. As I understand it, it will not be as much corn as they would normally pick, but they will gauge the day as it goes.

With that said, please do not rush to the stand with high expectations tomorrow. However, if you are in the area and want to take a chance, you just might be one of the lucky few!
