New Zealand grown sustainable flour supplier

Hi There,

Im writing to inquire about the possibility of sourcing some wheat and rye flour grown here in New Zealand.  Terrance farms has a list of flours and prices but the contact details dont seem to be working. I'm writing this to ask if anyone has any details regarding milled flours grown in New Zealand with a focus on sustainability.

Im a keen baker and would love to keep the bread made from New Zealand grains being organic/bio dynamic if possibile.

If anyone has any details my email is jeromeozich93@gmail.com

Happy day to you all

With Love, » Read more

Local Currency

Is now the time to initaiate change?

Shall we implement a seperate form of trading to get the ball rolling?

 

Here is what has been thought of;

Identifying underutilised land

Transitioning it towards organics/permaculture/biodynamics

Growing copius amounts of fresh, local, healthy, rich, strong, organic, nourishing, powerful food

As hippocrates put it, let food be thy medicine

 

A seperate form of currency will be established, a return to bartering...

Farm workers can be paid in this currency, as a regocnician of their work » Read more
