Local peas and beans

from blenheim

We're eating less meat at our house for all the reasons that you, no doubt, are already familiar with. And when possible, we try to buy local.

I found these split peas and red beans at a nearby A&P. They are from Thompsons ("since 1924") in Blenheim, Ontario.

I'm finding the culture of Agriculture quite fascinating. For example, I just learned that the Ontario Bean Producers Marketing Board is dedicated only to promoting White Pea Beans. This is why there is also the Ontario Coloured Bean Growers Association.
