- Tarbais were originally cultivated by the Aztecs in Mexico until they were introduced to the Europeans
- These beans were named after the Tarbes region (south of France) where the beans have grown for centuries
The main actors of Cooperative du Haricot Tarbais are Clement and Pierre Winery. Pierre has been farming with his family since 2009. As a lover of gardening, he wanted to grow something new but also local so he chose the Tarbais beans. He and his cousin Pierre have been growing these beans since 2015.
