Runner Beans, string beans or stick beans – whatever you may know them as – are at their best picked fresh and eaten within a couple of days so that they are at their most tender.
The pale green beans and delicate flavour of the pods are delicious with our new potatoes and our free range chicken for the perfect summer supper all available at Bells Farm Shop.
Picking stick beans is great fun for children – the towering tripods tangled with bean vines and splashed with bright red flowers are like going on a jungle adventure with the bonus of being able to bring back food for tea.
See who can find the longest bean!
