Frazee’s Corn Feed slated Aug. 21
Submitted by admin on Wed, 08/06/2014 - 11:00
Frazee’s 7th annual Corn Feed has been set for Thursday, Aug. 21 from 5-7 p.m.
Local guitarist-songwriter Todd Sisson will provide entertainment. This year’s pig-out will be 7-14 days later than most. A year ago, the event was Aug. 8.
It will feature an abundance of large ears commonly called “peaches and cream,” grown in a premier setting by Kirk Buehler, an Ottertail farmer who grows numerous vegetable and melon crops.
During Turkey Days, the farmer said the corn was going to be delayed a week or two, simply because of a late spring, wet and cold.
Once again, the feed will be held on the lot between BackYard Station and Joe’s Barbershop, located at 113 Main Avenue West.
In addition to free corn eaten with butter dripping off chins and elbows, the colorful commodity will also be on sale by the bag, a dozen ears in each.
As in the past, Roger Boe and Mayor Hank Ludtke will lead the cooking crew. Ludtke will exchange his wooden gavel for a metal instrument, as he and the BackYard Station owner engage in a “tongs war.”
Boe said Buehler was to start picking sweet corn this week and the product should be at a peak through the remainder of the month.
Sisson’s music will display a wide range of pop, country and folk music, contemporary and classics. He will perform many of his own songs.
The sponsor is the Frazee Area Community Club (FACC). Several door prizes will be given during the two-hour period.
Persons attending can register for prizes and must be present to win; there is no admission charge.
Freewill donations will be accepted, with the funds going to support FACC projects during the coming year.
In addition to huskers from the Frazee Area Community Club, other volunteers are welcome and needed. They will assemble at 113 Main Avenue West beginning at about 2 p.m.
