Adolph Steinbronn developed Wapsie Valley Dent Open Pollinated Corn in 1971. Unfortunately, there are many versions crediting its origin to the Amish and native Americans.
Wapsie Valley Open Pollinated Corn all started when Adolph Steinbronn shared his passion for organic farming and his desire to create what he considered the perfect corn. I was 5 years old when Dad started on this journey, his passion definitely rubbed off on me.

I feel honored and privileged to be able to resume and continue his legacy - Larry Steinbronn
