This bag contains over 100 Payne's Hawkins Prolific heirloom corn seeds. This is a white field corn that grows up to 12 feet tall. These heirloom corn seeds have not been artificially enhanced in any way. We do not use herbicide or pesticide on Payne Mountain Farms. This corn has been grown( and seeds saved) on Payne Mountain Farms for over 75 years. Some stalks produce 3 ears -- these are the ones we save for selling to our heirloom seed customers. As the story goes, Grandpa Payne started planting Hawkins Prolific white field corn over 75 years ago. He ate it fresh, dried it for corn meal (and grits), and used it as animal feed. So do we! This corn is full of minerals and vitamins. It is delicious when cut off the cob fresh from the field and cooked in a heavy pot (to avoid sticking). Bring to simmer on low heat and cook until creamy. The spoon should stand up in the pan! Add butter and salt to taste. *Treat growing plants like any field corn.

As the story goes, Grandpa Bruce Payne started planting Hawkins Prolific corn in the fertile river bottoms on Payne Mountain Farms over 70 years ago! He ate it fresh, ground it into corn meal, and fed it to the animals.
We cut the tips of the kernels off of the cob, scrape the juice from the cob, heat the mixture slowly in a thick-bottomed pan with butter, let it bubble a few minutes while stirring constantly, and add salt to taste. When fixed right, this delicious creamed-style corn is thick enough to hold a spoon upright. We also dry the corn kernels then grind it into corn meal and grits. Plant the seeds like any field corn. Prefers rich soil and requires full sun. This heirloom corn grows up to 12 feet tall.
