Hartung Brothers, Inc.'s peas production areas are in Spring Green, Sturgeon Bay and Central Wisconsin.
They are grown like snap beans but we don't double crop peas. HBI contracts with local farms to grow the peas on their fields. HBI supplies the seed, does the plantings, scoutings and harvesting. The Grower is also a great help in making sure the crop is gowing healthy and producing great yield. The difference with peas is that we plant them for the grower with the air seeder.
