1 pound bag - about 3 cups - Whidbey Island, Washington

Absolutely gorgeous beans! They hold their shape and have this wonderful creamy feel and have a distinct taste.

About Rockwell Beans:
Rockwell Beans are an extremely rare heirloom variety of bush bean native to Coupeville, Washington. The bean came from early Coupeville pioneer, Elisha Rockwell, who settled in Coupeville in the late 1800s. He maintained a variety of dry bush bean that rapidly became popular in the small pioneer community for its ability to germinate in cool soils and mature rapidly - both extremely important traits in a cool, maritime climate. the Rockwell Bean is a beautiful white bean with cranberry mottling color and, most importantly, a wonderful flavor and ability to hold its shape when baked.

About Willowood Farm:
Willowood Farm is located in heart of the Ebey’s Landing National Historic Reserve on central Whidbey Island, in Washington state. It was started by 4th generation Ebey’s Prairie native, Georgie Smith, in 2002. “Willowood Farm” was the historic name of Georgie’s farm, first used by the descendants of pioneer Isaac Ebey and is a reference to the once abundant willow trees that grew on the waterlogged prairie soil - soil that was was later drained by an extensive system of ceramic tiles installed by Chinese laborers. The Smith family began farming the property in the 1890s and has lived on the property since.

Georgie has reinvigorated her family’s tradition of farming with new emphasis on sustainable and organically grown produce and the same successfully markerting tecniques that has revitalized many small family farms across the United States. Willowood Farm focused on produce that thrives in central Whidbey Island’s mild, maritime climate and the rich, loamy soil of Ebey’s Prairie. Of course, one of the things that Georgie grows is heirloom beans, including the Rockwell and Peregion Bean.

Everything is grown without the use of harmful pesticides or chemical fertilizers, and they utilize healthy farming practices to ensure they put as much into their land as they take out.
