Monday shop keeper, Sarah Thibodeau, shared this recipe and article on Baer’s Best Beans and Farmer Charley Baer. The recipe uses heirloom Yellow Eye dried beans that Charley grows and we have in the CSA shop.
Some of you will remember that Charley farmed Moraine Farm for 15 years before buying a farm in Maine. We are exceptionally fortunate to have him as a neighbor and mentor (he helped us figure out why we were having problems growing beans this year). Charley is one of the few farmers still growing heirloom dried beans in the northeast. Check out his new website, BaersBest. Enjoy the pictures of his beautiful beans!
