Grow my own but the locals who have little stands get $2.oo a half and $3.50 a dozen and the more you buy the cheaper it gets.

Steve, you must live in an exceptional area. Here in central PA. $3.00 is too high for even the first corn of the season. Quite often it's down to $1.50 by mid season.
As for going partners, it wouldn't work around here. Either you would lease the ground, or they'de be growing their own corn. Remember, equipment is wayyyy cheaper than land, so if they wanted in the corn business they'de already be in it. Be prepared to pay a fair to high price for a field.
Good luck

at local vegatable stand corn is 4 dollars a dozen. A couple of differet farms have kids selluing it at 3 dollars a bakers dozen (13) for larger orders they will sell you corn for 15 dollars per hundred ears. as a kid we earned a ton of money selling strawberries and sweet corn. PLUS instills the work ethic into kids....
