What drew me to this bean is its story. Named for Burt Berrier, a 1950's farm equipment salesman and mechanic that assembled an extensive bean seed collection as he traveled calling on farms across the countryside.

“One thing about collecting beans, each has a life in it, it’s not dead as collecting clocks, dolls, guns etc…. There is no end to the subject of beans. I was told as a boy I didn’t know beans and I find that now at nearly 85 it’s still the same.”

                                                                          -Burt Berrier (circa 1978)
