Newer black bean variety bred for good yields, upright structure, and short season. It performs really well here in the Methow. But apparently the seed is under patent and it is not legal to sell! But we dont mind bucking the system here.  It really is a nice black bean.  THANK YOU to the breeders, we honor your work.

  • Why choose locally grown, regionally adapted seeds?

    ✿ Our seeds are intentionally bred to maximize resilience, be resistant to pests and diseases, produce vigorously, and taste delicious.

    ✿ That means our seeds come from plants grown right here and have started the process of acclimating to this region, which makes them easier to grow.

    ✿ We aim to work our land in a way that honors our human and more-than-human kin in the water, soil, and air.
