We at Randall Beans have a lot to say about gratitude. And, ‘Tis the Season of thankfulness, so we decided to share everything that has warmed our hearts and brought a smile to our faces in the hopes that you’ll share this joy with us and take a moment to remember the wonderful people and other blessings in your own life.
A Season Of Gratitude: What We’re Grateful For This Thanksgiving At Randall Beans
We are very thankful for our family—both our personal families and our family here at Randall Beans, without whom none of this would be possible.
Speaking of family, Randall Beans has been an integral part of Meredith’s family since the mid-1970s, when her father, W.O.Mashburn III, first acquired the business. She grew up in the business and knew its strong foundation and principles inside and out. When she and her husband Scott formally purchased the company in 2011, it was closer to coming home than taking on a whole new adventure.
So when we say that the history of our business and our family’s roots in this business are firmly entwined, this is what we mean!
Today, we’ve built a team of employees that might as well be our own flesh and blood. Without these dedicated people, we wouldn’t have the success we’ve enjoyed for the past twelve years and counting. Our company culture is and always will be one of the most important parts of our business.
We extend that sentiment even out to those growing and harvesting our beans. Randall Beans works only with high-quality growers who commit to sustainable farming efforts and ethical practices. If we wouldn’t trust a farmer’s beans on our own dinner table, we would never jar them and ship them to yours.
In fact, Scott and Meredith run their own organic farm on their own little slice of paradise in the east Tennessee mountains. The farm has been part of the community for the past 150 years as a stop for passing locals to rest, relax, and purchase organic produce. Scott and Meredith have been happy to continue that tradition. With every new visitor that lands on their doorstep, their local community grows a little bit stronger.
We love and are thankful for all of our customers. Without you, we wouldn’t be in business!
Our goal is always to serve our customers with the best jarred beans on the planet and the best service we have to offer. We love hearing positive feedback from customers who have enjoyed our beans. Comments such as, “I love Randall’s beans. I heat them up with cheese mixed in and put them in a flour tortilla, sometimes with Spanish rice. It is super-quick, easy, and yummy!,” and “Randall Beans are a delicious product,” make us smile every time!
Feel free to reach out and share your thoughts with us anytime. You may not technically be family members, but you’re part of a family of customers that has grown to be so important and meaningful to us that we’d love to get to know you.
Share comments, questions, feedback, recipes, or anecdotes about how you use our beans in your kitchen!
It’s always a joy to be able to spend another year with loved ones in good health. Not everyone is so fortunate, which is why we are exceptionally grateful for the health of our friends and families, and why we wish you good health as well.
To that end, we believe strongly in providing a wholesome, healthful product that will nourish and feed our customers for a reasonable price. If we can bring good health to other people around the world, we consider our jobs well done.
That’s a significant reason we retain the original business practice of jarring our beans. It might be easier and cheaper to switch to aluminum cans or cut corners on our cooking process, but we won’t do that.
We want our Randall Beans products to stay as pure and healthy as nature intended them. We partner with the best growers we can find, we use natural cooking techniques and forego the usual chemicals and preservatives you’ll find in most shelf-stable packaged foods, and we use only glass jars to avoid contamination from BPA or other harmful substances.
Our beans are jarred with the same recipe that Grandma Randall used back in the late 1800s, and we plan to keep them that way. There are too many things happening in the world that make people worry about their health; the quality of the beans they serve their families should never be one of them.
And, of course, where would we be without delicious food? We might be a little biased here—we are foodies at heart!—but life just wouldn’t be the same without being able to eat a plate of fresh pinto bean quesadillas or a bowl of creamy mac and cheese made with Randall Great Northern Beans.
We recommend using these recipes as appetizers or side dishes to make this year’s Thanksgiving feast one to remember!
Giving Back to Our Community
We believe that when you have so many blessings, you pay them forward and help others who might not have the same blessings in their lives.
We were able to donate a lot of beans to our local food pantry this year to help ensure that families in our area can keep their loved ones fed and healthy. We hope to continue this tradition in the future so that everyone in our community can have access to the healthy protein, fiber, nutrients, and delicious meals made with high-quality beans.
As we’ve mentioned, we thrive on feedback. The above are just a few of the things we are thankful for. What are you thankful for this year?
