Tongsee and his wife Xai are first-generation Hmong immigrants practicing traditional farming at Bean Market Farm. Raised in a farming community in Laos, Tongsee came to America in 1971. In 1996, he began his own family farm. The Xiong family grows beans and other seasonal produce by hand, using time-tested traditional methods on their rented land outside of St. Paul, Minnesota. Bean Market does not use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides on any of their crops.

In addition to fruits and vegetables, Bean Market is widely known for selling beautiful heirloom dried beans at the farmers market all year long.
