Bringing in the beans

October 13, 2016

Organic or not, one job that can fortunately be done by machine is the collection of the beans.

 

First though, the farmer has to take out all the bean canes. Not a quick job when you've over 20,000 of them.

Thousands of bean plants, no longer watered, but their beans left to harden in the warm autumn air

 

 

But after that, he can pay a local farmer who's invested in a large harvester, which rips up the whole plant and can separate the beans. Even putting them into bags.
