Chefs love them, but can farmers make money growing them? From advances in heirloom hybrids to reviving traditional farm practices, ancient beans have new life as a profitable, shelf stable product for small farms.
Come to learn from an amazing panel of small family farmers and Travis Parker of UC Davis to discuss the challenges and triumphs growing heirloom beans. The panel will be moderated by Lisa Riznikove, Co-founder of Foodocracy, a mission driven non-profit. The Foodocracy Heirloom Bean and Grain Project includes a subscription bean box that provides market opportunities as well as seed funding for women and minority owned farmers.
