Created in 1976 as a cooperative effort between dry bean growers in North Dakota and Minnesota, Northarvest Bean Growers Association (NBGA) provides a full range of services and funding to help producers and shippers supply the world with dry beans. NBGA:
- Helps fund export marketing initiatives, advertising, trade shows, public relations, and communications
- Funds research to improve the quantity, variety, and quality of dry beans grown in the region
In 1960, the number of farmers raising dry beans in the Northarvest region could be counted in single digits. Today, we’re a leading producer and shipper of dry beans with thousands of farmers.
