Starting about five years ago we began growing several varieties of dried beans. Each year has been full of lessons from the best way to prep the land, how often to cultivate, the best way to harvest, the best moisture level for beans for longer storage potential, and even the best bags for sale. We are proud of how much we have learned and how much we continue to improve on this crop.
In 2020 we partnered with Plovgh to trial three different varieties of dried beans. For the 2021 season we are excited to partner with them again, this time to trial six different varieties. That is in addition to the four varieties we will be growing separately from the Plovgh trials.
Starting mid-late September we will have dried beans for sale through both our farm stand and through the Dane County Farmer’s market.
