Brought to the Pima people in the early 1700s by the Spanish Jesuit Missionary Padre Eusebio Kino, the Akimel O'Odham planted the Kalvash/Garbanzo Beans as a winter crop from November to February, and harvested the crop in May and June.

Today, Ramona Farms brings back the tradition of growing the Kalvash on the very same fields farmed by their ancestors along the Keli Akimel (Old Man River). Garbanzo beans are delicious in many culinary applications. We will be experimenting with milling chickpea flour. Stay tuned!

At the Mill, while our focus has been on Texas farmers, we are making efforts to engage/employ/purchase products from indigenous farmers and farmers of color. In our search, we discovered Ramona’s American Indian Foods, a Native American (Akimel O’Odham) business within the Gila River Reservation near Sacaton, Arizona.  Ramona and her husband Terry Button, began farming on her parents' original ten acre lot in 1974.  Read more about their story and land practices here:

Our Garbanzos are natural agricultural products. We rigorously clean and inspect every product, but removing all foreign material is impossible. Please inspect your grain prior to cooking or milling.

Great Quality Products

I pressure canned the garbanzo beans and they taste way better than store bought. They are very tender and flavorful. . The quality of their products are great! I am so glad I found Barton Springs Mill, plus I love purchasing local and the bonus is that they use local farmers.
They were also very helpful and patient with me placing my first order for pickup. I highly recommend them!

Excellent Flavor !!!

Used the Garbanzo beans in making butternut squash soup.
Soaked the beans in water over night. Added beans to the veggie broth, then made the soup. The beans are full of flavor. Will not use canned beans ever again.
