We will have a prepared bean salad along to market this week. Michael, the chef at The Farmhouse Deli in Douglas, has been using our beans in prepared dishes that he offers at the deli. We will be bringing small quantities of a different prepared bean dish each time we come to market.
If you’d rather cook your own, choose from our farm’s certified organic beans:
Bean Medley – A mixture of several of our beans, good for soup.
Black Turtle – Common black bean with a thick skin and a meaty texture.
Hidatsa Red – Similar to a kidney bean but with a slightly nutty taste, these beans are good in salads, chilis, soups or served with grains.
Painted Lady – Slightly sweet, with a smooth, creamy texture.
Yellow Indian Women – These buttery beans retain their shape well, and are less starchy than some other beans. Good all purpose bean.
Zebra – Smooth, creamy texture, full-bodied flavor, good all-purpose bean.
Or choose from the varieties we’ve swapped to obtain from another farmer from the thumb area of Michigan. Kevin from Sheridan Acres is transitioning to organic, and his beans have been grown without the use of chemicals. These varieties include:
Black Calypso – Plump, with creamy texture. Slightly nutty, mellow taste, something like a russet potato.
Dapple Grey – Large bean, meaty texture, slightly nutty taste. Great in soups or chilis.
If you are interested in bulk orders of beans (5# or more of any one kind), please email me to inquire about prices and to place your order.
Corn Meal & Grits/Polenta — Our certified organic corn is Wapsie Valley, which is a yellow & red open pollinated (non-GMO) corn that dates back to the 1850s. After harvest we carefully clean our corn, removing broken kernels and other seeds that have gotten mixed in. It’s then delivered to the DeZwaan Windmill in Holland, where it is stone ground and made into grits/polenta or corn meal. Since no preservatives are added, it’s best to keep our corn products refrigerated or frozen.
