Starting about seven 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.
Starting mid-late September we will have dried beans for sale through both our farm stand and through the Dane County Farmer’s Market.
We currently have around ten different varieties of dried beans for sale and you can find us at the DCFM’s Late Winter Market at Garver Feed Mill in Madison Saturdays through mid-April.
For the 2023 growing season we will be growing between 15 and 20 varieties of beans. The varieties we have available change from year to year based on seed availability.
