A History of Popcorn Farming Excellence in Michigan

Our family first came to Tekonsha to farm the land in 1856. Ed Shumway first began growing popcorn in 1991 for another processor as a cash crop, while engaged in dairy farming. Shumway Farms Theater Style Popcorn, LLC evolved from this early venture in May of 2000. Today, we produce and process acres of popcorn at our facility and in partnership with area and out-of-state farmers on our team of growers.

Many of the farms that grow our popcorn are multi-generational family farms. As an 8th generation family-owned and -operated farm in the popcorn industry, we place high values on quality and integrity and constantly strive to achieve these goals. Our ambition is to exceed your expectations!
