A note from
our co-founder, Lesley

After spending 15 years working in agriculture and learning about the role that beans play in human and soil health, it became clear to me that beans are the perfect food. As I cooked my way through as many beans from around the world I could get my hands on, I knew I had to share the love.

Rooted in connection

"I started Primary Beans to share our obsession with beans and to celebrate home cooking as an act of mindful living. Whether you have 30 minutes or 3 hours, our beans provide you with the chance to connect with yourself, those around you, and the planet."

Improvise or impress

Weeknight or date night. Quick and easy, or low and slow. Refreshing salad or comforting stew. Side dish or main event. Time with yourself or time with friends. For breakfast, lunch, or dinner. A whole new way to appreciate beans, whatever your way is.

Abra Berens' cranberry bean salad w/ roasted carrots + mojo de ajo

I came to know cranberry beans in the kitchen at Petersham Nurseries under the tutelage of Skye Gyngell. She called them by their Italian name, borlotti beans.

Abra Berens' tomato + parsnip stew w/ wilted kale

I like to finish these stews in the oven to slowly evaporate the liquid while creating a bit of a crust on top. It takes a little longer but requires less attention than the stovetop...

Abra Berens' greens + bean pot licker

My friend Erin Stanley turned me on to cooking broccolini with some pasta cooking water until it is just about to fall apart. Swap pot liquor for pasta water and here we are. 

Company update from our founders (November 2021)

Launching this next crop is a huge milestone for us and our small team is working feverishly to get so many new and exciting things launched around the holidays.
