Field beans near Wood House Hanging
In the days before imported animal-feed protein such as fish meal and soya bean flour beans were widely grown as a field crop to mix with cereals for livestock feeding. There are several varieties of field bean, which is the same species as the broad bean, only smaller. They have weak climbing or straggling stems. An especially small variety, the tic bean, is grown to feed racing and homing pigeons. Two other varieties are the winter bean and horse bean. The winter bean is hardy and slow growing with short, cylindrical seeds. The horse bean is similar but the seeds are flatter. The fragrant bean flowers are a valuable source of nectar for bees.
