How can we support this claim?
We store corn cobs inside buildings on cement floors. Keeping corn cobs stored inside provides protection from all of the elements, such as rain, snow and dirt. Our inventory is fresh and free from decomposition, rot, mold, mildew, dirt and sand, all of which can degrade and lower the quality of processed finished corn cob products.

About the Industry

The corn cob processing industry started around the mid 1900's and evolved significantly over the years. Whole corn cobs were originally sourced mostly from local farmers who picked corn in the fall with the entire ear of corn intact. Farmers would put the ears of corn in storage to dry, and the following summer, would shell the corn from the cobs.
