Heritage Local Tepary Beans

Our first product and still a best seller, is premised on the great taste and 4000 year old celebration of one amazing legume, the Tepary Bean.  Having a deliciously nutty earthy southwestern flavor, this drought-tolerant, high-fiber & iron superfood is known as one of the most sustainable proteins on earth.  This ancient bean is sourced from the Akimel O’Odham tribes of the Sonoran Desert and can be traced back to the Hohokam People of the 1st century.
