Beans were nutritious fare for our ancestors. Yet today, many people think of beans as inexpensive food consumed by people who can’t afford better.

They haven’t had Rancho Gordo heirloom beans!

There’s no better way to learn to appreciate beans than to try the impressive selection of heirloom beans grown in California by Rancho Gordo.

Far from serving “affordable” fare, your friends and family will see you as the fine food enthusiast you are. More good news: Beans are extremely healthy food. You’ll read why in the full article.

Heirloom beans are made from old strains that have more flavor, better texture and a beautiful appearance. Many have been rescued from extinction by specialty growers. Due to lower yield, more demanding growing requirements or other factors, these strains have been passed by by large-scale commercial growers.
