Welcome to our world of beans

Primary Beans places the almighty bean– grown for flavor and nutrition– at the forefront of meals that are good for you and the planet. 

Harvest information
on every bag

Unlike beans at the grocery store, ours are sourced directly from farms and delivered right to you, with harvest information on every bag.

Grown with home cooks in mind

We obsess over quality and partner with forward-thinking farmers and researchers who are committed to growing for flavor and nutrition.

Climate-conscious
sourcing

Bean crops don’t stress the natural ecosystem and uniquely add nutrients to the soil. Our farms go the extra mile to care for the environment.
