Did You Know ?

Do you know why our Corn is fresher than a roadside stand or grocery store? The answer: technology and experience. To guarantee freshness and to ensure flavor retention, all of our corn is hydro-cooled. When we pick our corn in the morning, we run ice cold water on our corn. This technology will slow the breakdown process. Without this process, your corn will lose 50% of its flavor within 1 day. This is because the corn will turn to starch. Newtown Farm Market wants its customers to get the freshest corn, not just for today, but for 4 to 5 days after purchase. We pick our corn daily so we can guarantee the freshest possible quality. Each season, we will be offering the same varieties of corn we always have in the past, plus a few new ones! We will be sampling corn each day, so come on in and try ours and taste the quality for yourself!
