Our Own Flint Indian Corn

By Nan

April 7, 2014

The corn that we sell at Seed for Security, was bred here on our farm years ago, before GMO seeds were available. Our farm is surrounded by tall mature hardwood forest land. Our corn germination rate is 95% this year. Every year I grow more corn to have a steady fresh supply of seed.

According to Suzanne Ashworth, in her book Seed to Seed, Flint corn will retain a high germination rate for up to 10 years and sometimes much longer.

This corn, when ground into meal, makes delicious corn bread, pancakes and muffins.

Flint corn is not difficult to grow or harvest. No wonder it has been a life sustaining crop for centuries.
