Locally Grown Popcorn

WE DISCOVERED THAT IDAHO WEATHER GROWS SOME OF THE BEST TASTING POPCORN YOU WILL EVER TRY

A few years ago Deb Vogel and I grew some popcorn just for fun.  It was delicious.  It also was a great novelty for our customers.  The next year we grew a bit more and toyed with bagging a bit of it.

As you might have guessed it turned out to be very popular.

The Yellow popcorn we grow is a Mushroom variety.  That means it pops into more of a round ball shape.

We also grow 5 varieties of heritage popcorns.  Each of these come in beautiful colors.  We have Dakota Black, Strawberry, Calico, Glass and Rose Pink Popcorns.  Each variety pops with a slightly different density and size.  We find the best way to sell it is in a blend that we call Calico because it is ver coylorful.  During the fall we get it all harvested and dried, then I start removing it from the cob and making our blends.The new crop is usually ready by January.

We also found that selling our popcorn still on the cob is a very popular novelty item.

It is also available through:
