We plant a beautiful dark green, slender variety of bean that our customers prefer. The beans must be planted every week, so we end up with some 10 to 12 plantings so that we can offer beans from early July to the end of September. Our fresh green beans are available at our Farm Stand and our other retail locations.
Green beans are very intense to harvest, because they require hand-picking at just the right ripeness. Each planting can only be harvested for a week to ten days before they get too big, and are no longer desirable in the kitchen. In total we have about ¾ of an acre of beans and they are watered with overhead sprinklers.
