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: ramonafarms.com

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.

Good stuff

Very delicious chickpeas. Full flavor, not muted like the canned product. There is a bit more work involved, like soaking and then boiling for a while, but if you want good taste, then it's worth the extra effort. Makes great hummus and chickpea salad. Also, because it's dried, it stores very well. Would definitely recommend.
