The Cornfed Derby Dames (CFDD) is a flat track roller derby league based in Muncie, Indiana. Founded in 2010, the league consists of a single team which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded early in 2010,[1] By 2012, the league was playing numerous bouts against leagues such as the South Bend Roller Girls,[2] and was reported as having a major impact on the lives of some of its skaters.[3]

Cornfed was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in July 2012,[4] and it became a full WFTDA member in September 2013.[5]
