There are a number of companies interested in the faba bean variety Fabelle and some have a new crop price on them.
Currently feed buyers have been taking them at $13 delivered for feed use so that is a market option as well.
On fractionation or flour use - usually pricing is picked up at your yard, so the location of the business is not that important. Make sure to ask what the price is based on (clean grain after cleaning, and how is the clean out paid, how are splits and dockage paid, and movement period)

Fabelle is the top yielding faba bean in the marketplace by about 5%. It is larger vs a Snowbird faba bean and smaller vs a FB 9-4 faba bean. On irrigation, faba beans can be in the 80-90+ bu yield range and in average to good rainfall areas they can be higher yielding vs peas most years. They do like late season rain. They can be seeded very early, but late season frost is a concern (they have a similar growing season to wheat). They are not susceptible to Aphanomyces root rots like peas and lentils are. Faba beans fix nitrogen all season long and can fix 30% more N vs peas.
Fabelle is a certified seed use only product so there is no farm saving and a form to sign. Outcrossing on faba beans happens very easily so for purity in the low vicine/con vicine types like Fabelle is important.
End users for the human food/protein fractionation market want low vicine/con vicine because there is a risk of favism in a portion of the population and low vicine/con vicine varieties like Fabelle prevent that from being a problem.
We also have CDC 219-16 faba bean targeting feed or cover crop use (small seed size)
