      Golden Bantam Corn is an heirloom variety of corn that you can save seed from year to year and get the same thing repeatedly. It cost $1.

      65 a pack for two ounces which contains approximately 230 seeds.

      When we were setting up our farm this year we decided we would need to grow approximately

      3 rows of corn 100 feet long to produce enough for our family of six to eat fresh and can to last all year.

      Then we would need 21 more rows 100 feet long to provide feed for our twenty four chickens, two pigs and a milk cow.

      If I plant the seeds six inches apart it would take two seeds per foot meaning I needed 200 seeds per 100 foot row.

      That in turn lead me to figure we needed 21 packs of seeds to plant 24 rows and it would cost us approximately $39.

      60 for the seed.

      If all the seeds germinate we expect to get ...

      two ears of corn per stalk resulting in 9600 ears of corn which should yield approximately 3200 pounds of corn.

      If we only got one ear per stalk we would get 4800 ears of corn yielding approximately 1600 pounds of corn.

      With some fertilizer we should come out at least in the middle of

      our estimate.

      If we have more than we need we can sell the extras.

      When we plant we do two rows six inches apart with a three foot walk way between the next set of two rows.

      So our estimated area needed to plant the 24 rows is 42 feet wide by 100 foot long.
