About Us

Brothers Neil and Bill Schlenker, along with Bill’s son Richard — have grown beans on the family ranch, located between Burlington, WY and Meeteetse, WY for many years.

When the brothers decided to do more than just grow beans, they adopted the Music Note brand, first incorporated by their grandfather back in 1889. Now, Music Note Beans grows, buys, mills, bags and sells dry beans grown by the family as well as other Wyoming and Montana growers.

Music Note Beans currently handles great northern and pinto beans. The beans are shipped to Europe before being sold in countries like Turkey, Spain or Italy. We are particularly proud one of being 100 percent based in the Big Horn Basin. There is no parent company located in another state. Our mission is to provide a quality commercial choice for the growers in the Big Horn Basin.
