NZ Grown Legumes

Hi, It is always tricky to find NZ sources of legumes. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I used to get lentils from Milmore Downs but they don't have any this year and I am also looking for chickpeas, beans, etc as well.

I suspect there may be an issue of economics not quite stacking up, so I'd also be willing to look at community supported agriculture. My transition town has a well-established purchasing group.

Many thanks, Heidi
