Butterbeans ready to bag

WHAT ARE CROWDER PEAS? (Pictured here in 2011 before picking through and bagging in one or five pound bags) Field peas, crowder peas, blackeye peas are all part of a larger species of beans commonly called “cowpeas” or “Southern peas.” They are commonly grown in the South because they adapt well to our heat-tolerant, and drought-resistant area. Their flavor and texture are similar to blackeye peas. With a rich and hearty flavor, it creates a dark pot liquor when cooked. Crowder peas are delicious when cooked with smoked pork, onions, and garlic sauteed in butter. I love one pot meals!!!!

We are currently harvesting the second of five fields of butterbeans and purple hull crowders are looking to be available soon too!
Pre-order by texting/calling 757-255-4563 or email orders@oliverproduce.com
5lbs/gallon bag is $25 each for either crop.

We lost both our last field of sweet corn and field of snaps/green beans to the weather.
