Back in the 17th century, the Passamaquoddy Tribe in Maine cultivated the very first Jacob's Cattle Bean. They soon passed this hearty dried bean on to their new friends in the woods, the lumberman, who lived in the famous woods camps harvesting Maine's vast resource of timber.
Jacob's Cattle is a plump, pure white, kidney-shaped bean with vivid maroon splashes. It is full-flavored, holds its shape under long cooking, and stands up well to plenty of seasoning. We have included one of the original lumber camp's bean-hole bean recipes that even includes a splash of rum! (For medicinal purposes only, of course).
If you want to truly experience an authentic taste of the past, grab a generous one pound bag of our Maine grown Jacob's Cattle dried beans and follow the original recipe to a "T"! A taste experience to remember.
