Our Organic Garbanzo Beans are grown on a farm that has been in Legrange, Oregon by our oldest grower. He is 85+ years old and still farming strong!
Our Organic Garbanzo Beans are plump, creamy and delicious. An excellent source of protein and fiber, garbanzos supply roughly 27 percent of daily protein and 50 percent of our fiber requirements in one cup. They are especially high in folate, manganese and iron, which are important components in the body’s anti-oxidant activity.
Garbanzos are an ideal base for soups, stews, salads, and purees, and can also be ground into flour for non-gluten recipes.
Words from the farmer:
“We believe in a sustainable farming future. Having seen an increased demand for organic products, we strive to be good stewards of the land, and incorporate organic practices where applicable on our farm. In 2012 we added 5 solar facility sites, incorporating solar power into our sustainability plan.”
