We have enjoyed your Mirai Sweet Corn every week this season. We looked forward to having your tent and counter set up in Arlington Heights and since the first week of Mirai we haven’t missed a weekend.
Havin come from a farm in northwestern Ohio, I know how you felt during this terrible dry summer. My father and I lost a lot of crops when there was no rain available to get the crops through the growing season. We hope for your sake that next year will be a good season to grow more Mirai corn. It is the best sweet corn in the world.
Thanks for making it available this year and we hope you will have a whole lot more of it next year.Bryon, Rolling Meadows, IL
We had a bumper crop in, spite of the drought, our bicolor corn.Ralph & Jan, Glenview, IL
We have to fence it in the backyard to keep the raccoons out. But, the corn was “fantastic”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We ate and ate and froze the kernels off the cob for winter.
Can’t wait to order the seeds next spring! Be sure we’re on the list!!!
I grew up near the Sweet Corn Capital of the World, Hoopeston, Illinois. I worked for one of the canning companies during the summers in the late 60’s to earn money for college. I ran a corn picker the last two years I worked there, so I’ve seen a lot of sweet corn in my life. We lived on sweet corn during the summer and I’ve tasted many varieties, but none compare to Mirai. I don’t miss a weekend going to the farmer’s market to pick up a dozen or more. For dinner tonight, I had one ear that was a week old and one ear that I picked up today. I could not tell the difference in the flavor of the two. Incredible!!Edward Hatfield, Lisle, IL
I found your corn at the Gurnee Farmers Market, and have been one of your most sincere suPporters. I have given this corn as gifts (that’s how much I( think of it) as a house warming gift, a shower gift a 50th Anniversary gift as well as any time I can give a gift. I only insist that they tell me what they think of it after cooking. So far not ONE BAD WORD. Only those that ask where they can get it. So I printed a copy of all the Farmers Markets in that area and gave it out to all of them. They all agree – once they have tasted this corn NOTHING ELSE WILL DO. Keep up this wonderful work and too bad Oct. comes so fast.Doris, Gurnee, IL
