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