Article about B&M Baked Beans

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

Check out this Portland Press Herald article about the B&M Baked Bean factory right around the corner from our place: “Reporter spills the beans about factory where nothing is half-baked.”

Nice to see something still being produced in Maine.

B&M on History Tonight

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

If you get the History Channel (I know it’s called simply “History” now but it’d be weird to say “If you get History”) watch Modern Marvels tonight.

The B&M Baked Bean factory in Portland – that’s right down the road from our house – is going to be on it!

From the WGME website:

Burnham & Morrill Company has been in the canning business since 1867. In 1910, the business was moved to its current location on Casco Bay in Portland. On Thursday, March 11th the B&M Baked Beans factory will be featured on the History Channel’s Modern Marvels. The show starts at 8pm.

We don’t have cable, but maybe I’ll download it on iTunes tomorrow.

Tonight? I think I’ll need hot dogs and beans for supper …
