You know it's sweet corn season when you see the little red barns around town!

Our very own Leslie Moreno was out at Suter's farm tasting the corn to make sure it's sweet enough. Owner of Suter's Produce, Jerry Suter says they taste quite a few just to make sure they are good enough to be picked. The sweet corn is planted at different dates so there is a batch ready at all times throughout the summer. Suter says the right time to pick sweet corn is when the kernel is fully developed. 

"We're getting us a good start on this year's sweet corn crop and it's fun when the seasons change and now it's sweet corn season. We pick the sweet corn this morning and then that's the corn we sell at the stands, corn that was picked this morning," says Suter.

Suter says about 30 local high school and college students help pick the sweet corn every morning at around 6 a.m. You can find some of those little red barns with sweet corn all throughout the area.
