Sweet Corn!!

Sweet Corn!!

Finally it’s ready!!! Sweet corn is available daily at the roadside stand between Hwy I and Hwy X on Hwy 83 North of Mukwonago.

We have a few different varieties of corn, some yellow and some bi-color… all of it is SWEET and picked fresh each day… no yucky leftovers. Also, we do not spray the corn with pesticides!


If you’re interested in a large order we just ask that you let us know so we can have it ready for you. Either stop by or shoot us an email schuettfarms@yahoo.com

On another note, we’re already looking ahead to this October… work has started on the corn maze and pumpkin plants are looking good despite the heavy rains we were hammered with earlier this spring. Check back soon for updated pictures.

Caring for your wreath

Caring for your wreath

Did you know: Holiday evergreens are said to symbolize our everlasting circle of life?!?!

 You can spray your greens with garden-type anti-desiccants to reduce moisture loss and increase life!

Keep your greens away from any heat sources – they do better in cold weather.

Caring for your Christmas tree

Caring for your Christmas tree

Here’s what we suggest to help keep your tree healthy through the New Year:

Before you put your tree in its stand cut off at least 1/4″ to remove any sap build-up 

Use a tree stand that holds at least a gallon of water – refill it daily – don’t allow the water to drop below the bottom of the trunk (otherwise a sap plug will form and the tree won’t be able to drink any more water.

Keep your tree away from heat sources

We have Fraser Firs. They have short, dark-green needles which are silver-ish on the bottom side.

 

Canaan Firs have slightly longer and softer needles 

Balsam Firs are considered to be the most fragrant tree.

We also have trees with long needles, the White Pine and the Scotch Pine
