NORRIGEWOCK, MAINE -- 04/18/2017 -- Albie Barden of Norrigewock explains how an antique corn sheller works. Barden is among the few people who call themselves cornkeepers. He has been preserving and trying to bring back native strains of flint corn that were grown in many Maine and New England regions by Native Americans. Barden has grown and disributed seeds from roughly 12 strains of flint corn over the years.
