My friend John Bartman comes from a farming family in Marengo, where he still drives a tractor and grows some of the best sweet corn I've ever tasted. I've made two trips out there this summer to visit with John and get some of his famous corn. No matter how you like it: boiled, roasted, or used in recipes like corn salsa, it doesn't get any better than this! The peak season for sweet corn is coming to a close, and this is the last week John will be selling corn in front of his farm on Rte. 176 just east of Marengo. It's worth the trip, no matter where you live.
John Bartman's sweet corn is incredible!
