Bush's Beans Museum

They take a picture at the end of the tour and it was a nice surprise to find out it was free too, for as many copies. Also, the 1825 Harrison covered bridge that people still drive over is not too far from here.

Family recipe security system.

Bush's Beans Museum

This was such a wonderful stop. Everyone was so nice, and we learned about the Bush's bean empire! The family recipe is well-guarded. We even got a free photo with Duke at the end.

Be sure to stop in the cafe for a free sample of the Beans of the Day and try the pinto bean pecan pie!

Big can of beans.

Bush's Beans Museum

The giant can of beans is a tunnel you walk through. In the tunnel you learn how Bush's Beans are made from start to finish. There is also a photo booth where you can have your pictures made with Duke -- and it is free!

[Jennifer Nugent, 03/30/2014]

For those unaware, Duke is the Bush's Beans talking dog.
