SILVER LAKE (KSNT) – After a bountiful harvest, a Silver Lake preacher is giving away sweet corn.
Randy Smith is the pastor at Lakeside Baptist Church in Silver Lake and for the past three years has been growing sweet corn to pay for short term mission trip for the church.
They recently got back from Guatemala where they visited an orphanage in June.
Now he says the church has more corn than they can sell.
“This year we have had an amazing crop, the corn has just been beautiful and abundant,” says Smith. It’s just been a really heavy crop but we’re finding out a lot of people have the same experience and we’ve not been able to market the corn quite as well as we have before everybody seems to have a lot of corn.”
Pastor Smith says they don’t want to see the corn go to waste and while they will accept donations they are also allowing people to pick some corn for free.
