“We are excited to share our harvest. It’s going to be a great family event,” said Rick Lattin, owner of Lattin Farms.

Corn Day will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors will have an opportunity to harvest as much corn as they can carry.

Dried corn can be used for cooking and baking, bird seed or chicken feed. The event will provide fun and an educational experience to children and adults.
