These black turtle beans are triple-cleaned and perfect for baking & cooking purposes.
Convenient & safe storage
Our black turtle beans come in five-gallon buckets (or pails... another word for the same container), containing 35 lbs. net weight. When you store black turtle beans at home, they need to be protected in a couple of ways. First, they need to be protected from a variety of little critters who'd like to get to them before you do. Weevils and rodents, for example. You also need to protect your black turtle beans from picking up excessive additional moisture, which can be drawn from the atmosphere. The buckets our black turtle beans come in provide full protection against these storage risks. They have airtight gasket-sealed lids, Mylar liners, and oxygen absorber packets that remove the oxygen from the air in the bucket after we put the lid on. The O2 absorbers leave an atmosphere of nitrogen in the bucket because air consists almost entirely of oxygen and nitrogen. (The oxygen absorber packets themselves are completely food-safe, being made of powdered iron and salt, which are kept separate from the product itself.) Our buckets safely lock out pests, and biological processes are put "on hold" in the Mylar protected, an oxygen-free nitrogen atmosphere, so your black turtle beans enjoy complete peace and quiet until you want to use them.
“I can't believe how fast my order came! I thought about ordering from Amazon for two-day shipping but went with Pleasant Hill instead because I've always had great service. Pleasant Hill's prices were better than Amazon for the items I ordered, and it came just as fast.”

All of our Black Turtle Beans are triple-cleaned to ensure purity and protect your grain mill from any foreign objects. (Black Turtle Beans that aren't sufficiently cleaned may contain small stones that will damage or destroy a grain mill... not to mention that you don't want such things in your food!)
Our black turtle beans have a shelf life of 10+ years when unopened and stored in a cool, dark, dry environment.
All of Pleasant Hill Grain's whole grain products are natural (non-GMO). This applies equally to both the Organic and the Conventional (Non-Organic) grain.
"Pleasant Hill Grain is a top notch company. You process orders quickly without error and also resolve returns to the customer's satisfaction. Other companies I've ordered from online don't measure up to Pleasant Hill Grain!" — Pat Perusse, MD
