Sweet Corn Harvest

Sweet Corn
Sweet corn is the most labor-intensive crop on the Herndon menu. It takes a “mule train” of 45 workers on the ground to hand-harvest on the exact day for optimum flavor. After sorting, packing & stacking the corn in the field each box goes to the Hydro-cooler and chilled to below 40 degrees to maintain freshness and quality. We have the capacity to harvest 20,000 crates per day with packing options including the traditional wire-bound crates, plastic ECO boxes or the reusable RPCs. Sweet corn planting starts in late February in intervals to allow for harvesting and shipping through the summer.
