The Sweet Corn Lady

Janesville, WI

#1 Aug 10, 2009
So now the Walworth County Sheriff's department is citing the Sweet Corn Lady who has been in business in Elkhorn and Delavan for thirty-five years because she has more than one free-standing sign? Perhaps this business could send some peaches over to the Sheriff's department to SWEETEN them up! This is the ONLY place in Delavan and Elkhorn to get delicious--always good---peaches. Maybe Walworth County could worry about drugs, vandalism, or crime and not who's selling PEACHES! If you love the Sweet Corn Lady, PROTEST!

maybe the walworth county authorities should make a raid of the sweet corn lady for illegal workers. just asking as I see up to 33% of delavan being undocumented illegals who commit the majority of drug and gang activities. seriously, the sweet corn lady is the least of the county's problems. this is just an out and out harrassment of a business that provides quality produce and an alternative to big box stores such as wal mart who are now trying to run yet another segment of businesses out of existence. The county is trying to extract revenue out of a business that attracts visitors to the area. Just wrong!!!!

It's Walworth County zoning that is issuing the citations. Not the Sheriff's department. Not the township. Both of them have been great! As to illegal workers? The Sweet Corn Lady hires local teenagers and college kids for workers.

Oh, I absolutely agree. She should tip him based on his foul language. He'd be making a mint!

I bought 6 ears of corn from the sweetcorn lady, and at $3.00 for
6 ears, i expected better quality corn than I had got at piggly wiggly for $4.80 a dozen, or $2.40 for 6 ears.
the young lady told me she would pick out 6 nice ears for me.
Well, the quality of corn was far worse than at the piggly wiggly.
2 of the ears were uneatable.(one was underdeveloped, only had maybe half of the ear with corn. another had big worm, wasting at least 1/3 of the ear. Two ears were old corn, and only 2 ears were decent.
I wonder if the young woman thought I was a chump and she could
unload their worst ears of corn on, but, I may be middle aged, but hardly some chump to unload their crap ears of corn on. I have excellent computer skills. I went back to piggly wiggly to buy my corn. So, I am pleased to hear the Walworth sheriff is harassing them now. Maybe it's because they have cheated others.

So Jolly, just because you don't like someone, you feel that they should be intimidated and harassed by the law?

Typical Obama voter. How's that sense of entitlement going?

Jolly - We are so sorry to hear about your experience at the Sweet Corn Lady stand. We guarantee everything - always have - always will. On occasion, we run into less than perfect corn - poor weather (too cold, too wet, too hot, etc.) has detrimental affects on the growing season and the final product. As the season is over, we are unable to replace the corn you bought, but know that if you had stopped back at the Sweet Corn Lady stand, we would have replaced the corn as we guarantee everything. Once again, we apologize for your experience.
