It’s the farm's first harvest of the season and the first harvest of dry beans.
"So this is the first year we have grown beans. This is a field of black beans. Prices on everything else were not that good here and they came to us for a contract and it seemed like it was fairly lucrative, and we decided that we try and grow some. We grew some black beans and some kidneys, so today we are cutting our black beans," said Tristan Winegar.
Black beans that were contracted before the season and have turned into a much-needed hedge crop.
"The good thing is that we had the machines to do it and do it right. If we didn't have that we wouldn't have grown them. We're used to growing corn in our rotation when we rotate out alfalfa and other crops and this gives us more diversity and helps us in the long run, and they were fun to grow," added Winegar.
