The Flurry of Field Work

The Anderson farm plaque 
It's a flurry of activity here on the Palouse as the window of planting the Spring crops are drawing to a close  and farmers all around our area are busy getting their crops in the ground. We had to wait on a few wet fields, but now we are now completely finished planting garbanzo beans and Spring wheat. At our Genesee farm, we planted about 400 acres of regular garbanzo beans and about 200 acres of "billy beans" which are smaller garbanzo beans used for hummus. So if you purchase the brand "Sabra" you may find comfort in knowing that the main ingredient probably came from this area as not only our farm but many  other area farms  grow the billy beans.
