Jacob`s Cattle Bean History

Jacob`s Cattle bean is the original stock for this variety was obtained from the Passamaquoddy Indians in Maine. A well adapted variety for dry bean seed production, does well in all growing environments with 80-100 days of frost free weather. Yields can be exceptional. Great winter staple for soups and chili.

How To Grow Jacob`s Cattle Bean

sow the bean outdoors after the danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed. Sow the beans 1″ deep and a few inches apart in rows 18-24″ apart. When your seedlings come up a few inches, thin them to 5-6″ apart.Dry Beans are ready to harvest when the skin is paper thin, and you can shake the pod and hear a rattling sound.  You will have to remove the beans from the pod–which you can do by splitting them open and removing them by hand, or you can turn the whole plant upside down in a bucket and bang it against the side, causing the beans to spill out into the bottom of the bucket.  {You can throw the skin right back into your compost pile.}

Preserving And Storing Beans

Freeze the beans overnight to kill any tiny bugs that might be still lurking. To store dried beans, just place them in an airtight container {I think canning jars with a latch lid work awesome} and keep them in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. Click here to learn more.
