Northarvest provides current information to member growers, consumers, and the general public with a user-friendly, current website.  Growers can view information about their industry. Consumers can download order forms for bean pamphlets and posters.  From breaking trade news to archived research reports,  is a first-class model of what a web site should be.

The January- February Bean Grower magazine included Bean Day information and the Annual Report.  The 2005 Dry Bean Research Update was included with the March-April 2006 magazine.  Also in the March-April issue was a CD with all of the Bean Day presentation slides.

The four editions of Northarvest Bean Grower provided growers and associates with current news about market trends, pricing, production practices, promotion events, recipes, and many other topics.

The Northarvest Communications Committee directs the projects that keep growers informed about the organizations activities, dry bean markets, and industry news.  Current committee members are:

"   Alan Juliuson, 
     Hope, ND

"   Mark Dombeck, 
Perham, MN
