Jacobs Cattle Bean

$4.00

Grown on the farm, this is a dry Abenaki bush bean from Fred Wiseman in Vermont and the Seeds of Renewal. Great for baked bean recipes as it holds it shape after long cooking.

It is such a beauty to look at and it grows so incredibly well in this region so for us it is a must in the garden.

“The Jacob’s Cattle bean is an heirloom of Prince Edward Island. Though no perfect facts point to its cultivated origins, myth and legend has it that it was cultivated by the Passamaquoddy Indians during the 17th Century. Shelling beans were a quintessential foundation of Native American agriculture.” (Specialtyproduce)
