Tiny But Mighty

Shellsburg, Iowa

The old adage stands true: good things come in small packages, even more so if they come from Tiny But Mighty. The Iowa-based brand is at the center of a popcorn revivalist movement, perfecting the art of growing, picking, and popping heirloom variety corn with a genetic makeup virtually identical to the corn that covered the North Americas since Native Americans shared this family of corn with a pioneer family in the 1800’s. Forgotten until the 1970’s, this prized popcorn was the furthest thing from memory until a member of the family discovered the last remaining popcorn in a fruit jar, planted it, and was greeted by a few friendly stalks in all their golden corn glory.
