I've got two sources to suggest for those who are looking for "non-hybrid" corn (and other seed, too).
First is Schumway's. They carry about a half dozen different OP corns in both the sweet and field categories. This is where I bought my field corn from.
The other good source is Seed Saver's Exchange. They have seed available 2 ways: one is through their farm's own sales office, and the other is from members who are listed in their annual yearbook. The yearbook lists many pages of different corns, and all are OP/non-hybrid. Almost mind-boggling how many different corn varieties there are.
The yearbook also has listings for almost any veggie you can think of, including something like 100 pages of tomatoes alone. You can get to their websight thru seedsavers.org. I've gotten seed from both ways, their own farm and thru other members and been satisfied either way.
