Iowa Corn Engages Cyclists with Sweetcorn Feeds at RAGBRAI

WHAT: This year, Iowa Corn will be welcoming RAGBRAI cyclists with homegrown, fresh Iowa sweet corn. Signs along the route will inform riders about the difference between sweetcorn and field corn which represents 99 percent of all corn acres. There will be five stops along the 500 plus mile route offering riders sweet corn, the opportunity to talk with local farmers and tour the Iowa Corn trailer.
