Reese Farm Sweet Corn began over 45 years ago by Maggie Reese and her son, Bob, Jr. Maggie and husband Bob, Sr., sold brushes and other household goods door-to-door during the depression until they could afford to farm again. The Reese's had a working dairy farm, and in the late 1950's, began to raise sweet corn. Maggie would bring the corn from the field to the road in her apron. Using her good sales skills, the sweet corn business began to grow.
In 1972, Bob, Jr. passed away, and his son, Robert III, began raising sweet corn with Grandma Reese. At that time, they were raising about 25 acres of sweet corn. All of the corn was sold by Maggie at their roadside stand on Wood Road.
After graduating from Michigan State University, Robert III began to expand the sweet corn business. Maggie continued to work at the stand until 1998, when she passed away at the remarkable age of 101! Now the farm includes a fourth generation, Robert IV and Rebecca.
Depending on the weather and field conditions, current acreage varies from 55-85 acres. More than a dozen different varieties are planted and harvested from the end of July through mid-September. The hours of operation are Monday through Saturday, 9 am to 6:30 pm, corn permitting! Call 517-484-2868 for availability.
