Localism Challenge, Day #12:  It's almost Zellwood Sweet Corn time- opening 9/17/11!



Localism Challenge, Day #12: It's almost Zellwood Sweet Corn time- opening 9/17/11!

Yes, it's almost sweet corn time.... If you're not from around these parts (like me), you're probably thinking "What the heck is sweet corn?" (as I did the first year I lived down this way).  Simply put- you got it- it's some corn that's sweet.  Once you've had some, the next question you'll be asking is "Where the heck can I get some of this sweet corn?" (as I did).  Here's your answer...from the only place you can get Zellwood Sweet Corn- Scott's Country Market at Long & Scott farms.

Did you know...?

  • Long & Scott's is the only farm left that still grows Zellwood Sweet Corn
  • Scott's Zellwood Sweet Corn is available only at Scott's Country Market, special local produce markets, in gourmet food stores or shipped directly to your home to guarantee freshness and convenience
  • Long & Scott's owns the trademark to the name - "Scott's Zellwood Sweet Corn"  If it doesn't say Scott's Zellwood Sweet Corn, it's not the REAL Zellwood sweet corn
  • Scott's Zellwood Sweet Gourmet Corn is grown from a new, hard-to-grow variety of seed that is so delicious and tender that each and every kernel is bursting with sweetness
  • Each year, Long & Scott's provides all of the Zellwood Sweet Corn for the Zellwood Sweet Corn Festival - about 160,000 ears

 

Long & Scott's is also "amaze-ing"  Where there's Zellwood Sweet Corn, there has to be a Zellwood Sweet Corn maze.  This maze is from a previous year- and I know this year's won't disappoint!
