Created in 2009, Bean Crafters was born out of a love affair with beans. We wanted to craft tasty, affordable, locally and organically sourced products that were rooted in the simple but oh so nutritious and delicious bean. Bean Crafters was founded on the belief that what we eat and how it is prepared has a direct and powerful effect on our communities and the environment.We are supporting staple food growers and producers by building markets for their crops and goods through our valley-added products. All this endeavoring is to support an agricultural system that more readily builds soil, protects water, and feeds people nutrient-rich foods in a less energy-intensive way. We strive to increase accessibility to real food across a variety of platforms, not just Co-Ops and farmer’s markets but schools, jails, hospitals and other institutions. Food is central to our communities and to our future. Bean by bean we are increasing the yum factor on your plate while providing nourishment to all.
