Taber area soil is perfect for growing corn, it drains well and has the right nutrients to grow excellent corn. The long sunny days, cooler nights and some of the longest frost-free periods in Alberta make good weather for corn growing.
The French call it terroir – the taste influence of climate, soil, seed and grower controlled factors, like planting, cultivation, and harvest.
Producers harvest corn in the early hours of the day when the corn is cool. Taber is surrounded by Alberta’s market. Corn is fresher because corn speeds from picking to eating daily.
