It is time again for us to celebrate the most favorite of holidays – National Bean Day! This day, with its unclear heritage, is dedicated to the celebration of a delicious and versatile food. One famous story suggests that in Germany, people traditionally make a special cake on Epiphany (today, Jan. 6). The baker hides a bean in the cake. Whomever finds the bean in their piece of cake is the Bean King or Bean Queen of the Day. While we don’t plan to celebrate in this way, we will be enjoying those high-fiber and high-protein legumes.
We’re growing lots of beans for Snoozing Dogs Farm next year. We’ll have Tongue of Fire beans coming in late in the season and tasty Kentucky Blue pole beans throughout the summer. We hope you’ll join us for our 2012 season! Please sign up for our mailing list if you would like to be notified of our 2012 season details.
