HIPPEAS® is all about mind, body and soil. Chickpeas support a healthy and diverse farm by naturally keeping nutrients in the soil, where they should be! HIPPEAS® chickpeas are farmed using practices like conservation tillage to improve soil erosion and crop rotations that improve soil health. These crops are farmed using 10% of the water of most proteins, which means 90% less water taken from Mother Nature. Chickpeas naturally use less fertilizer by pulling nitrogen from the air, which helps lower the brand’s carbon footprint. At HIPPEAS®, they believe that sustainable farming (and snacking!) is the way forward!
