The beans became available at the Farm Market on Thursday afternoon, September 5th. Since that time it has been busy here with the Pinto beans flying out almost as fast as they go in. So, if you need new crop Pintos, please visit our Farm Market soon.
You ask, what is so special about new crop beans? They will have a beautiful white appearance with the painted brown spots, hence the name. They will cook up faster and they taste excellent. If you have always purchased Pintos from a supermarket and never had local new crop beans, then visit the Estancia Valley for some new beans this year.
If you miss our crop, the annual Pinto Bean Fiesta will be held here in Moriarty, NM on October 12, 2013. At the fiesta you will find beans grown locally in our valley.
