by 2013 Bean Harvest
Thursday, September 26 went down in Snack Out Loud History as the bean team ventured to Colorado’s Easetern plains to experience their first bean harvest.
After approximately 100 sunny, dry days of growth, dry beans are typically ready for harvesting. The green plants are cut just under the earth and left to dry for days – up to weeks depending on the weather. Combines then thresh the fields (a process that separates the beans from the pod) and beans are put through a rigorous triple clean process to remove debris. Beautiful, fresh black, mayocoba and pinto beans are now ready for Snack Out Loud to work their magic and turn them into delicious, crunchy snacks.
