2014 IOWA CORN QUEST
Lisa and I recently had the pleasure of being invited to attend the 2014 Corn Quest sponsored by the Iowa Corn Growers Association. It was only fitting that we drive through miles and miles of farmland to meet up with 8 other bloggers in Des Moines to start our “corny” adventure together. Iowa produces the largest amount of corn of any state in the nation, and the Iowa Corn Growers invited us down during harvest season to learn more about how corn and products made from corn improve our lives every day. Contrary to popular belief, only 1% of the corn grown in Iowa is sweet corn that we eat. The rest is field corn which is processed into starches, oil, sweeteners, ethanol and animal feed.
