In 2021 the MVSC crew did an Open-pollinated corn trial to find a sweet tasty corn to add to our collection. New Mama was the hands-down winner. This variety was developed by our friends at Adaptive Seed from a cross between two super sweet varieties. Like other OPs, it is not totally uniform and has a shorter window of best eating than a typical hybrid. The wonderful benefit of the OP is that you can save your own seed.. AND, it is very productive and delicious and we love it. And a great year to introduce to our collection as we now also have a new mama on our team!

  • Why choose locally grown, regionally adapted seeds?

    ✿ Our seeds are intentionally bred to maximize resilience, be resistant to pests and diseases, produce vigorously, and taste delicious.

    ✿ That means our seeds come from plants grown right here and have started the process of acclimating to this region, which makes them easier to grow.

    ✿ We aim to work our land in a way that honors our human and more-than-human kin in the water, soil, and air.
