Burrum Biodynamics -Split Red Lentils 500g
These lentils are grown in Victorian Wimmera soils, grown without use of chemicals and artificial fertilisers using sustainable biodynamic principles which improve the health of the soil. Red lentils are a great source of protein and iron. Splitting makes them very quick and convenient to cook. Ideal as a nutritious thickener for casseroles, stews and soups.Stephen and Tania also supply us with the beautiful biodynamic barley we use to produce our Vodkas and Whisky.
The farm "Burrum" is situated on the edge of the Wimmera plains in NW Victoria on Wotjobaluk Country. In the mid 90s Stephen started learning about bio-dynamics through bio-dynamic pioneer Alex Podolinsky, Stephen & Tania started converting the farm to Bio-dynamics in the year 2000. The soil responded well to this farming technique. By 2008, a full Australian Demeter Bio dynamic Certification was achieved. In 2010 they produced their first biodynamic lentil crop. This was the same year farming communities in the region experienced the highest floods on record. The nonseasonal rain deemed the lentil crop appropriate only for splitting. This was the final push the family business needed to invest in its own facility on-farm to sort and split their own crops and launch Burrum Biodynamics.
