Haricot Farms, an offshoot of Central Bean, was created for the Grebb family to explore sustainable growing practices and has successfully introduced several unique, environmentally friendly farming methods to central Washington. No-till and minimum till farming, for instance are most non-invasive forms of planting and harvesting. Because the soil is never tilled, the natural, beneficial nutrients and insects are preserved, which in turn produce healthier bean crops. With no soil erosion, the earths precious nutrients stay right where they are needed – growing the best beans in the Pacific Northwest. Haricot Farms and Central Bean collaborate with several local growers to meet the ever-increasing demand for sustainably grown dry beans.
With their Food Alliance certification, the Grebb family farm has served as a model for sustainable
farming practices through-
out the country.
