Your view: Share the beans

Wednesday, March 24, 2004

My father has asked me to help him find a soybean grower who will sell him a bushel of soybeans that have been organically grown (I assume he means not sprayed with too many chemicals).

I know that's a really small amount, but he got a bushel from someone in Illinois about 20 years ago and is still talking about it - he used them to develop recipes. The Illinois grower was a friend of a friend and he's lost contact with him. I'm not sure you can help me, but you sure have a better chance of knowing someone than I do.

I thought it couldn't hurt to ask. We're from southwest Missouri, and I'm pretty sure Dad would drive anywhere in the state to get these beans. Thanks for your help!
