    I might have some around here. I’ll try and look it’s not something I grow anymore. Are you wanting it for sweet corn or field corn / dry corn. I ask because for dry / field corn I find bloody butcher does better here in VA’s red clay. It’s also heirloom seed and I have plenty of that. Gave Tag & Bee a quart bag full last year.

        Then do a little research on Bloody Butcher and let me know if you want some seed. It’s an old OP type that’s highly sought after by high end restaurant’s for making many things including Booze. It’s used on old school farms for EVERYTHING. . .

        If possible could I buy or trade something for some of both types of corn. I live in the Roan Mountian TN. What part of VA are you located in. I do know of some places in south eastern. parts of VA.

        I haven’t been able to lay my hands on the hickory king, I may have given it away already. The Bloody butcher I’ll be happy to send you a small flat rate box full, which is a quart bag about full.

        Hickory King is sold all over the place so you should be able to find it without issue. PM me your mailing address and I’ll get a pack of bloody butcher seed out. It may be a few days as it’s nasty weather here right now so until it dries out I’ll be staying home. Once you get it if you want to pay shipping I’ll gladly take that.
