How Do Subscriptions Work?

Pinto beans are some of the most popular beans in the world, and once you taste these culinary gems, you'll know why. These delicious little beans become melt-in-your-mouth creamy when cooked, which is why they’re excellent for refried beans or Gallo Pinto. They're also great in soups, stews or blended into dips.

The Problem

While nearly every region of the country grows dry edible beans, most large-scale production happens in dry climates because wetter environments make them more prone to pests and fungal disease. The majority of beans that you find in grocery stores are shipped from across the country and grown with pesticides. Traditionally, beans were allowed to dry completely in the field, but conventional bean producers use an herbicide called sodium chlorate (ew) to wither the leaves and lower the moisture in the beans before they harvest them. 

 

Our Food Fix

Purveyors like Wild Hive to source from small farms and bring local, sustainably grown beans to market. Most bean growers are also grain growers. This is because beans take in nitrogen from the atmosphere and deposit it into the soil in a form that is usable for plants to nurture themselves. They are often planted in rotation with wheat, corn, and other crops. By purchasing both grains and beans from small farmers, Wild Hive Farm is creating a fruitful relationship on all sides, while giving farmers incentive to grow responsibly.
