Beans, Beans, The Magical Fruit…

Well, we’re a good ways in to our soybean harvest. So far everything is going smoothly, and we’ve gotten one of the best yields ever.

harvesting beans

What we farmers grow is turned in to all kinds of products you use every day. I bet you didn’t even realize soybeans played such a huge role in your everyday life. From margarine and salad dressing,  breads, cakes, cookies and pies, or tofu, tuna and sardines, to livestock feed (which you in turn convert into energy if you eat meat), biodiesel, even the foam in the seat of your car!  Thats quite a list of achievements for one little bean.

Soy is also beginning to replace petroleum in products such as crayons, ink, and candles, which is good news for the environment.

So next time you buy something, no mater what it is, you probably have a soybean farmer to thank for that product.
