These are not the canned beans you find in the store - boiled gosh knows how long ago, nearly mushy, with not-so-good-for-you lining in the can leaching in . . . These are beans sourced from sustainable farms, locally grown when possible, boiled hours before they are delivered to you. Nothin’ but beans and water. You'll taste the difference; your body will thank you for the nutrition; and the environment will be spared another can making its way from below the earth, to a smelting plant, to a manufacturing facility, to a cannery, to the store, to you, and then to the landfill/recycling facility - a long, wasteful, avoidable journey - just to put beans on the table.
