When I was at BYU, I went grocery shopping with my roommate at Smith's one time and she bought corn on the cob. I was super excited because it was packaged and already dehusked and said it came from Somis Farms aka Underwood's Produce, which is like the closest place to the house I grew up in to buy anything, a small produce stand on Highway 118 in Somis, CA. But they produce a ton of food items, and ship them all over, including Smith's Foods in Provo, UT.
So when I was at our local grocery store the other day, Hy-vee, the prepackaged, dehusked corn on the cob was on sale. I don't buy corn on the cob often, and I've never bought it prepackaged and dehusked, so subconsciously I sort of looked at the package to see if it would say "Somis Farms" anywhere. When I realized what I was doing, I had to laugh. I live in Kansas. I drive past fields of corn on a fairly regular basis. They are north, south, east and west of town. We drove past acres and acres of corn on our way to and from Iowa a few weekends ago. I live in corn country (although the University of Nebraska Cornhusker's would probably argue that statement).
