General information
Storage Tip: Put in a perforated plastic bag and store in crisper. Do not wash until just prior to use (moisture causes rusting on the beans). Fresh beans last for 4 days to a week.

Preparation Tip: Remove the top (stem end) of the bean. To optimize their sweet flavor, cut the beans as little as possible. Cook just until tender and bright green.

Did you know... They used to be called string beans because of the string that ran along the outer side of the pod, but by 1894 botanists had successfully removed the string through breeding experiments.

Culinary Compatibility: Butter, olive oil, mayonnaise, balsamic vinegar, garlic, cream sauce, pesto, olives, nuts, herbs, tomatoes, sweet peppers, onions and potatoes.

Health Information: 1 cup of raw green beans has 34 calories, no fat, and 2 grams of protein. These beans are high in vitamin C, folate and are a good source of Vitamin A, potassium, riboflavin and thiamine.
About the vendor
Fraserland Farms Fraserland Farms
Delta, BC
British Columbia's fertile Fraser River Delta is home to a group of dedicated organic farmers who are committed to sustainable agriculture and progressive organic farming practices. The Harris, Chong and Dhaliwal families together produce high quality organic vegetables marketed under the label Fraserland Organic. The three families cultivate over 1,200 acres of certified organic farmland and produce certified organic potatoes (Red, Russet, Yukon Gold & Early White), broccoli, winter squash, sweet corn, green and yellow beans, sugar snaps, English shelling & snow peas.

The Fraserland Organic story begins with the Harris Family, who are 5th generation farmers. The family began farming in 1896 in Delta, at a time when everything was produced organically. The current generation started farming organically again in 1993 with 20 acres of organic corn destined for processing. Brent Harris of Fraserland Farms and his childhood friend, Danny Chong of Bow Chong Farms decided to combine the strengths of each farm to grow organic potatoes. Fraserland had the tractor power and Bow Chong had the washing and grading facilities. The partnership was very successful, and over times the Harris’ and Chongs transitioned more land to organic production and expanded beyond potatoes. As market opportunities for organic vegetables increased, they acquired another partner in 1999 the Dhaliwal Family of Dhaliwal Farms, and quickly became the largest farm (or rather, group of farmers) in Canada to produce and sell organic produce under one brand. Fraserland Organics Inc. became an incorporated company in 1999.

The land producing Fraserland Organic vegetables is certified organic by Oregon Tilth, which is an internationally recognized certification agency based in the US. Farms certified by Oregon Tilth have ready access to the export market south of the border. This export market was critical in the growth of Fraserland Organics since produce that was not absorbed by the local Canadian market found eager buyers in the US who were seeking high quality organic vegetables from a reliable source. Fraserland Organic fit the bill.

The farmers of Fraserland Organic Inc. are not only committed to sustainable organic agriculture but participate as much as possible in agricultural research to help improve organic farming techniques. On staff are two scientists who research and develop soil nutrient and pest management programs for the farms. They manage field-monitoring teams and submit data on a weekly basis to Fraserland Organic. In addition, Fraserland Organics participates in joint research initiatives with the University of British Columbia, creating the synergies that are critical for innovation in organic agriculture.
