We are a conventional row crop farm (all non-GMO) slowly converting some acreage to organic production.
The bulk of our production is conventional non-GMO corn and soybeans. We started transitioning 20 acres into organic production in 2004 and now have 150 acres certified organic by Oregon Tilth. We have 50,000 bushel of on farm grain storage, storage for 10,000 bales of hay or straw, high temperature grain drying capability, a certified organic seed/grain cleaning and weighed bagging facility, capacity to harvest, pack and cool 3 pallets(3 ton) of sweet corn per morning, on farm refrigerated and frozen storage, state inspected facility to process frozen sweet corn and a full line of mostly 12 row equipment to grow corn, soybeans, oats, wheat, field peas, sweet clover for seed and sweet corn.
We have certified organic fresh market sweet corn available wholesale in season (mid-July through August). We're still small enough we can pick the corn at its ideal maturity, start cooling it before it even leaves the field and then store it at the farm at 33 F. We have refrigerated delivery of pallet quantities (42 cases of 48 count) available in the Chicago area during July and early August.
Another venture for us is organic frozen corn-on-the-cob. It's processed here on the farm in a state inspected facility and is available year round.

4 full ear retail pack
