Today we’re featuring 2014 New Crop Pinto Beans from friends of ours growing in the Rocky Mountain Region. This morning the FedEx delivery guy appeared like Santa Claus at our office with samples of these good colored pinto beans, it feels like Christmas came early this year. Thank you for sending us these beautiful pinto beans guys!
We are looking forward sharing these pinto beans with buyers across the world.
Western Nebraska 2014 Pinto Beans Getting Combined
The 2014 dry edible bean crop harvest is in full swing this week across the country. Great weather conditions have permitted growers to get into their fields and start combining their harvest so they can get it to local elevators for weighing and processing. This week’s pictures are courtesy from friends of ours in Western Nebraska where growers are excited about this year’s crop and are looking forward to great yields. Way to guys! We’re looking forward seeing more from you!
The US dry bean harvest is underway across the country even as cooler temperatures and moisture threaten some regions. North Dakota and Minnesota dodged a bullet Thursday evening with growers fearing a possible early frost jeopardizing the harvest, but luckily no such threat came to fruition. Dry bean shippers, marketing firms, and suppliers are all trading weather patterns in hopes of trying to squeeze values higher before yield numbers start coming in from around the country; which is expected to be larger than last year for certain varieties.
