Muleshoe Pea and Bean Attracts Business Worldwide

A declining water supply in Muleshoe forced the Nickels family to find alternative crops to corn.

In 1995, the family started Muleshoe Pea and Bean. Now, they process and dry black eyed peas and pinto beans for customers all over the world. 

"In 1999, there were over 54 million pounds run through this facility right here, and it made us the largest processing plant in the world for black eye peas," said Chad Nickels, co-owner of Muleshoe Pea and Bean.

The plant is also looking to expand and possibly process sunflowers next.
