1 acre isn't big enough for a corn field. The ears will all be stripped before they have a chance to mature, then you'll have nothing but a bunch of stalks. If you can get to five acres, that would be better - then plant the corn with beans in the same field. With some luck the nitrogen fix from the beans might help the corn grow.
We've got nearly a three acre plot we plant with corn and beans - the corn ears are always gone before they mature, but they soybeans stick around through winter. They tend to come back even when grazed hard. The corn basically servers as screening once they've got the ears gone.
