The Story of Hutterite Soup
These heirloom beans come from the Hutterites of North Dakota. Hutterites are a communal branch of Anabaptists who follow the teachings of Jakob Hutter.
Seed Savers Exchange member Dorothy Beiswenger obtained these seeds from a community in Forest River, ND and then shared them with us.
Beans were domesticated in the Americas thousands of years ago and serve as a protein in the diet of humans and animals.
