Heirloom corn is Native American corn whose seeds have been saved and passed down between generations. Heirloom corn is known for its depth of flavor relative to hybrid corn.
Heirloom corn is open-pollinated. Two of the same variety of plant are cross-pollinated naturally, usually by wind, birds or insects. Seed saved from heirloom corn will produce plants that are very similar to the parent plant, so the variety can be grown “true to seed” year after year, generation after generation.
We are pleased to offer heirloom, open-pollinated, non-GMO corn that is grown by small, family-owned and operated farms committed to saving heritage grains.
We offer two varieties of heirloom corn for grits and cornmeal:
Wapsie Valley (yellow) & Bloody Butcher (red)
Wade’s Mill Stone-Ground Heirloom Grits and Cornmeals are 100% natural with no additives or preservatives, non-GMO and gluten-free.
