Corn time in Lonoke County

It’s Esau Corn Time at the Wade Knox Children’s Advocacy Center of Lonoke County.

This annual event provides citizens of Lonoke County and beyond with the highest quality of corn that can be purchased.

Chester Esau of Esau’s Home Grown Corn, Dumas, has once again partnered with the WKCAC to support our event. The corn will be picked up early Friday morning, harvested fresh from the fields, and brought to the center at 1835 SW Front St. in Lonoke. Each bag of corn has 70 ears and the cost per bag is $24.

On July 11, the Center will offer the corn shucked and packaged freezer ready for $32 per bag. For your convenience, drive-thru service, plus loading in your vehicle, is offered.

The dates of the Esau Corn Event will be every Friday in the month of July starting with first pick up date July 11, 2013. The schedule is as follows:
