Michigan is known throughout the world as a top producer of dry edible beans for a very good reason. Michigan works hard to grow and market world-class beans that reflect the place from which they came and the passionate commitment of the people involved.
The Michigan Bean Commission is headquartered in Frankenmuth, Michigan. Frankenmuth is in the heart of the growing area, nearby State of Michigan governmental offices, Michigan Farm Bureau, and research institutions such as Michigan State University and the University of Michigan.
We all benefit from the efforts of The Michigan Bean Commission. There are more than 2,300 growers and related agri-business associates registered with the Michigan Bean Commission who are dedicated to bringing consumers the highest quality dry beans. Michigan's growers have a long history of production and are recognized worldwide as industry leaders.
