“It’s a good combination of our soil health, our irrigation water from the Rockies… we get tons of heat, I think it’s just a mixture of those things, and a little bit of magic from the Town of Taber.”
Taber corn growers have officially opened their season.
The hot weather the past two weeks has been exactly what local corn crops needed after a slower, wet start to the growing season. Some crops sustained hail damage back in June, however many have bounced back nicely.
You can find corn for sale in Taber as well as in select locations around Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Picture Butte, Raymond, Cardston, Fort Macleod, Brooks, Bow Island, Coaldale, Pincher Creek, Claresholm, Blairmore, and others.
Calgary locations will open Friday, with corn heading to Edmonton on August 5.
