Noble Popcorn Farms bucket

This is an old Noble Popcorn Farms bucket complete with flip-up wire handle. Large “sign” on front says “Net wt. 4 lbs. Direct from Noble Popcorn Farms, White hulless popcorn, Popcorn as only Iowa sun, crystal pure air and rich, loamy soil can make it. Noble Popcorn Farms, Route No. 3, Sac City, Iowa.” Two additional “signs” on the back give popping instructions plus the recipes for Caramelized Corn and Quick Caramel Popcorn Balls. Bucket is 6-1/2" tall with diameters of 5-7/8" at the lid and 5" at the bottom. Noble Popcorn Farms was established in 1985 and this bucket may well be that old based on its rustic appearance with plenty of spots and scuffs on the lid and rust on the bottom edges of the bucket and lid, as well as on the wire handle. Still in business today, you can order Noble Popcorn Farms’ gourmet goodies online. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.
