Sweet corn season at Newhard Farms

The sweet corn harvest benefited from rainy summer

N. WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. - The Labor Day weekend means the unofficial end to summer, but it also means the peak of sweet corn season.

WFMZ's Alexandra Hogan visited Newhard Farms to learn how farmers get corn from the fields to your table. Farm co-owner Joel Newhard, a fifth generation farmer, said the rainy season has proved to be great for this year's harvest.

Newhards farms almost 3,000 acres, about 60 of which is sweet corn.
