Ex Tax

Grown and harvested by Ramona Farms in Sacaton, Arizona, a community on the Gila River reservation in Arizona . Ramona Farms grown white Tepary beans are an ancient superfood found in the Sonoran Desert that have been farmed by the O’odham people for centuries. Packed with magnesium, niacin, zinc, and iron, white Tepary beans are an ancient, nutrient dense legume. Tepary Beans come in a variety of flavors, from white and black to brown They are rich in fiber and calcium while being low on the glycemic index, which makes them more fulfilling and nutritious than kidney or pinto beans commonly found in grocery stores.

Tepary beans are renowned for being nutritionally dense and easy to grow. These legumes have a deep history in the Southwest because they are extremely heat and drought tolerant and are considered a treasure amongst Indigenous people. In fact, Tepary beans were commonly used in the ‘Three Sisters’ intercropping system famously developed by Indigenous Americans.

All Tepary Beans have a rich, nutty flavor that give them many culinary uses, but white Tepary beans have a sweeter flavor than black or brown Tepary beans. Due to their dense, firm texture, these beans stay whole while cooking. White Tepary beans are most similar to the navy bean, which makes them excellent for vegan, vegetarian dishes, soups, and cold salads. They can also be puréed for a creamy consistency that is perfect for dips. Utilize them as a protein packed substitute for any recipe that calls for beans!
