Michael Farms Inc., Willard, Ohio, has completed a 25,000-square-foot addition. Vice president and co-owner Scott Michael said the project created a larger packing area for sweet corn and cabbage, storage space for containers and upgraded cooling rooms.
“We have a lot more space,” Michael said. “The sweet corn line is mostly new. We tremendously expanded our hydrocooling space to achieve even lower temperatures before it’s packaged.”
Michael said Ohio sweet corn season starts in early July and runs through September.
