How Do Subscriptions Work?

On their own, in a chili, these are memorable beans. When you're making hearty, stick-to-your-ribs chili, red kidney beans are the beans for the job! They're creamy but not mushy, and they stand up well to thick, full-flavored sauces.

      • Grown for Wild Hive by farmers in Northeast New York
      • 2lb bag
      • Your item will be ready the week after your order is placed. If you are a Local Roots member, this item will be included in next week’s regular weekly harvest. Of course, the exact day will depend on your regular Local Roots market or delivery day. You will also receive a confirmation email specifying the date of pickup or delivery after purchase.

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 to wither the leaves and lower the moisture in the beans before they harvest them. 

 

Our Food Fix

Because there are no industrial bean growers in the Northeast US, we rely on 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 up nitrogen and turn it into a form that is readily available for plants. 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.
