Thanks for the info Mark. No more Walmart corn! I would love to try some of the low sugar corn also and grind it or use for animal feed. I am sure all the chicken feed I buy must be from GMO's also.

Hi Michaele:

Nice to hear from you. I hope all is well and you are gearing up for planting season.

Last year, I grew Longfellow Flint corn and really liked it. You cant buy these seeds anymore; no one seems to sell them. However, I would be happy to send you some from my stock if you would like to give it a try. Just let me know your mailing address by sending an email to and Ill send the seeds off to

Another reader, Kelley from North Carolina, was kind enough to send me seeds for another flint variety called Floriani Red flint corn. This is a rare corn from Italy. I tried some today as Polenta and was impressed. Check out the review of the corn at mother earth news.....

If Floriani interests you, it can be purchased at Fedco:

You can give it to the chickens as well.
Theyll be the best fed chickens in the state :)
