In 1978, there lived a man who loved sweet corn. His name was Jay, and his affection for sweet corn was so enduring that he and his wife, Marg, planted an entire acre of the stuff. Later years saw the addition of pumpkins and a corn maze, and in 2006, their son Channing bought the farm with his wife, Amy.
Since then, Channing, Amy, and their sons have expanded to transform Strom's Farm into a family-friendly autumn festival come September and October. Fall weekends see wagon rides, pumpkin-tossing contests, hay bales, and fresh-baked treats. Of course, the corn maze is still there, but today it spans a whopping 6 acres. Puppet shows and homegrown popcorn, however, aren't the only passions that guide Strom's Farm. A portion of the proceeds from every autumn festival go to local and national charities.
Since 1975, Finest Sausage & Meat's master butcher has championed Germany's culinary tradition of grinding fresh, spiced meats into juicy sausages and transforming slabs of pork into traditional smoked delicacies. Prop up flimsy sandwich buns with deli meats (many at $4.49/lb.), and fill homes and or office ventilation systems with the irresistible aroma of frying bacon ($5.99/lb.). The facility’s meat mavens create fresh sausage ($3.25/lb.) and salami ($6.35/lb) on the premises, as well as smoke kassler, ($4.99/lb.), a boneless pork chop that belts out smoky, savoury flavour notes along with doo-wop hits.
