Never had surplus broad beans. How many acres have you got?

i found a 40 ft double planted row was plenty to eat and lots to distribute and freeze.

perhaps twice that would be more than enough for most bb fans.

ps another thing to do with them is treat them like peanuts etc and salt n roast them dry (a little oil and a moderate oven , turning till crispy ) honey and spices optional.
