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

FAMILY SEEKS USE OF LAND IN EXCHANGE FOR FRUIT AND VEG 

I am an experienced vegetable gardener looking for the use of about 2 acres within 1.5 hours of Dunedin, to create a small scale organic farm sufficient to feed up to 3 families all year round. 

In exchange, I propose to share the fresh healthy fruit, veg and meat with the landowner who would also benefit from the resulting improvement to their land. » Read more
