Black Turtle Beans
Black Turtle Beans grown at Salamander Springs Farm, Berea, Kentucky, without pesticides, fertilizers or tractor cultivation. The beans are hand harvested when dry in late summer and are shelled & winnowed throughout the fall and winter. A staple in Latin American cuisine, black beans are a wholesome and nutritious source of protein which is also high in iron.
Each package includes a delicious recipe which is a favorite here on the farm. Cooked beans freeze well so you can make a big pot and have quick meals later. Leftovers also make yummy re-fried beans for tacos or burritos!
Salamander Springs Farm is a small-scale unmechanized farm designed and managed using permaculture principles and practices. We use cover crops, organic compost and mulches instead of extracted petroleum-based fertilizers or pesticides. Our soil is not treated like dirt - not tilled into dust to erode away - it is teaming with life and stable organic nutrients which feed our crops naturally.
