Life is unfair. Get Used to It.
Our harvesting process and technology
"Husker" style machines
beans go through a machine to sweat
drying process with natural light
adds clay water mixture
Genetically Modified Crop
disease resistance gene = no more pesticides
yield gene = greater yield
flavor gene = more pure harvests
