Sweet Corn Charlie's is farm family of the year

Posted:

An Elkhart County farm is being recognized for it's contributions to the community. We're talking about Sweet Corn Charlie's.

The farm is the Farm Family of the Year.

Sweet Corn Charlie aka Chuck Mohler had no background in growing vegetables until he took a trip to Israel.

Mohler says the trip was life-changing since he developed a love for growing food.

Mohler and his wife started to apply some of the tips they learned while abroad.

As as result, the business emerged.

"One thing is the soils. We pay a lot of attention to have our soils very nutritious,' said owner Chuck Mohler. "We're not pure organic farmers but we use a lot of organic methods to enrich our soil."

While Mohler says it's an honor to be recognized by his farming peers..He considers it to be a bigger honor that he can employ members of the community with this farm.
