Made In Indiana: Husk Sweet Corn (Non-GMO)

During last night’s grocery trip, just as I was about to hit the check out line, I came across a real Indiana treasure in the freezer section at our local Marsh.  Tucked in the corner of the far frozen vegetable case was a neat pile of old-timey looking brown bags lettered in an old-west font: HUSK!   I picked a bag up to get a better look (and take down notes for my next shopping trip!) and sure enough, to my delight I had found another local Indiana food supplier being supported!

Who is Husk?

Husk is three Indiana farming men, Nick Carter, Adam Moody and Chris Baggott,  who have banded together to produce local food themselves, to package a “get to know your food producer” concept on their website  and to support other  local food growers in Indiana.

Their mission?

In their own words…

At Husk, we remember what it means for farmers to feed their local communities. We know the pride that comes in that work.  We know what it means to add value and processing to raw agricultural product.  And we know that we can bring that industry back to Indiana once again.

Stalking your food: Know your farmer. Know your food.

Back to the grocery store…

As I read the labeling on the Husk bag I picked up, I noticed apart from that great “Non-GMO” legend on the front of the bag that the back of the bag had an unusual website address – stalk.huskfoods.com – along with a code and instructions on what to do with it: “Enter this code to meet the farmer.”  Yes, you now have a way of finding out just who made the food you have in your hand!  Its genius!  You just enter the code of the bag and voila! you get the name of the farmer,  his farm address and the date he produced the food.

While Husk supports other local farmers, it has its own 5000 sq ft processing plant where they process over 200,000 lbs of sweet corn in 2 months!  Not bad for keeping it local-small, non-GMO, and made in Indiana.  Just the way we Hoosiers like it!
