Organic Black Turtle Beans, 40 lbs.

Organic black turtle beansOur black turtle beans are certified organic, triple-cleaned and perfect for all baking & cooking purposes. 

Convenient & safe storage

Our black turtle beans are certified organic and non-GMO, and come in six-gallon buckets (or pails... another word for the same container), containing 40 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 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.) 


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!)

  • Fantastic beans and service
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The beans were delivered several days faster than I expected. They are delicious, organic (which is great!), and I love the ability to save them for years if necessary! I have purchased these before and they taste great and were very fresh even when opened several years after the original purchase. They also were the cleanest beans I've ever seen, usually there are some sticks, twigs, or sand, etc. in beans bought at the store, these were incredibly clean!

  • Really great tasting black beans
    By on - Verified Buyer
    If you're looking for organic black beans that will last you for a long time and taste great, it's a no brainier: Buy a superpail that you can start a to eat them as soon you get them or save them for years. Also food prices keep going up so if you buy some now you'll save some money over time.

  • Second time purchasing, and will purchase again!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We are instant pot users and make a pot of beans every other day. I got really tired of the constant trips to Whole Foods to get dry beans. This bucket of black beans is the bomb! After soaking they plump right up and cook to perfection. Thank you for offering such nice products.

    In addition to being timely, and tasty, these beans were in a great container. It was easy to open and to store. It will preserve my beans for a long time.

  • Excellent Customer Service And Delivery!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I was glad to learn how well your company keeps up with the ordering process and verifications. I am a new customer and this was a new experience for me, ordering with your company. The order arrived it seemed, so quick! I haven't tasted the food, but wanted you to know that the ordering, delivery arrival and getting in touch with me was appreciated. Everything arrived in tip-top condition. Your conscientiousness toward making sure my order was correct, and friendly attitude was a pleasant experience.

  • Pleasant Hill Black Beans
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We ordered another pail of black beans. They came packaged exactly the same as the first one we got a couple years ago. No need to change since shipping and storage in these pails is the best way to preserve them. We took some beans out to see if they would grow, almost 100% of them germinated, that tells me their products are harvested, handled and packaged in conditions that do not damage their products. We have many of their products. Pleasant Hill Grain is our go-to when buying in bulk.
