We encourage customers to freeze sweet corn to enjoy in the off-season. We recommend freezing corn between approximately July 20 and August 20 because:

Early locally grown sweet corn is typically covered with plastic at planting to help heat the soil and start the growing process. This works well but adds to the cost of production - which increases the purchase price.

Early sweet corn varieties have shorter cobs and less kernels, so will not yield as much (when cut off the cob) as longer eared, full-season varieties.

Later in the season, corn can become less available and more expensive.
