Goal

To test the functionality of new fava bean varieties for use in consumer-facing products, particularly snack foods.

Project Summary

Prairie Fava is building on this by growing DL Seeds’ fava varieties and then utilizing them in their patented processing methods, testing them for functionality and feeding information back to DL Seeds in order to inform new variety development.

They’ll then supply Three Farmers with fava ingredients for further functionality testing in Three Farmers’ line of snack foods.
