The reason that few farmers grow the colored popcorn kernels is that the yield in the field is significantly less than regular yellow butterfly popcorn. The colored popcorns are our niche, we don't want to compete with the Big Boys with their mass produced popcorn. But we think our yellow Monarch Butterfly is excellent.
This is our premium yellow popcorn variety with an exceptional yellow corn taste and a high expansion rate, popping big and fluffy and melting in your mouth.

Our yellow is a butterfly popcorn variety with a smaller kernel. It has a great yellow corn taste with a medium expansion. It looks like the above Monarch but with smaller kernels and is quite tender.
Our white is a smaller kernel popcorn than the yellow, still with a relatively high expansion rate, popping up fairly large and fluffy and tender. It has a mild popcorn flavor.
Is a medium kernel blue popcorn with an good expansion rate. After it's popped, the kernel is white with blue hull speckles; it has a unique flavor.
Our ruby is a smaller kernel red popcorn also with an fairly high expansion rate. The kernel is white with red hull speckles. It has a rich, nutty flavor.
MIXED BABY RICE
Our baby rice is an heirloom variety which is HULL-LESS. The kernels are pointy shaped something like rice and are white, red, and striped red in color. When popped, it has less volume than other varieties, the kernel is white and the flavor is light and delicate, the texture is unique.
This is a premium hybrid variety which is one of our favorites. It's color is a dark pink. It has a moderate pop, and is tender and very tasty! The meat is a two-toned white to creamy in color.
This popcorn pops up round; it's used mostly by people who want to carmelize popcorn. Once popped, it better holds its shape during stirring or mixing than other types. It has a stronger corn taste than yellow butterfly popcorn, and is less tender. Our "Big Balls" variety which is what we have now, is the biggest and roundest we've ever grown. Not normally for general eating as it's a tougher kernel, but some people find it their favorite!
This is an open pollinated white popcorn, smaller than yellow, it pops up fairly large and tender and has a mild popcorn flavor.
Small and tender, relatively hull-less. We grow strawberry only occasionally as it's very difficult to harvest with our equipment and has a low yield per acre, thus it's more expensive, but for some it's priceless!
WE HAVE HALF-POUND, ONE POUND AND TWO POUND BAGS OF POPCORN THAT YOU CAN MIX AND MATCH AS YOU LIKE. WE ALSO HAVE BULK QUANTITIES.
OXYGEN BARRIER BAGS:
We package our hybrid and heirloom varieties in oxygen barrier bags so they stay fresh. At home we pop in an air popper so nothing interferes with the taste, then add toppings.
So, for the best popcorn make it fresh on the stove or with an electric popper.It's a whole grain snack with nothing but what you put on it. You'll be a people magnet wherever you are for the smell alone!
The popcorn that we pop and eat is the seed of a grain.
Our popcorn is processed in our facility which also may process soybeans.
