Old news - we offer for ages

Tree Planting on Milmore Downs for CO2 Capture

Everybody of us has his/her own CO2 footprint on our planet, smaller ones and bigger ones. Altogether we in the industrialized world produce far too much. But there are lots of possibilities to compensate them and to contribute to climate repair, one is to plant trees, but not everyone has practically access to land, and that's where we can help.

Are you motivated? You can visit our linked site www.carbon.org.nz and see the many advantageous effects of tree planting.

Contact us (at the moment only under our email address (milmoredownsnz@gmail.com) to realize your dream and contribution. Your motivation can make it happen that more and more trees grow for a better climate.

We tried to find out about the original cover in the valley and there are some very small pockets in gullies on the farms down toward Waikari. You can get a bit of an idea. We want to re-establish natives in that style – looking back toward the cover that was here before those hill became the 'Black Hills' due to a major fire set by an Oat/chaff mill in the 1870's. It burnt from Waikari to the coast!

BioGro Chook Wheat available

Here's a bargain for those of you with poultry! Normally we sell our grains and flours for human consumption only, but one of our farm suppliers had big issues getting in his wheat and the line doesn't meet our strict baking quality criteria. However, it is still a high quality feed grain, ideal for your free range flock.

No organic Meat from us available anymore

Yesterday we received some dreadful news from Harris Meats, the Cheviot abattoir where our lambs and beef are slaughtered. They have closed down slaughtering for any "private' customers. We don’t know if they will still kill for large customers, or only animals they have bought for their own marketing, or anything else. They just informed us ‘no more. They gave us no warning. They rang and said the service is withdrawn. Effectively immediately. It is very distressing for us, and we imagine for you too.

Of course, we are only able to sell meat from animals that have been killed in approved facilities with veterinary inspection and Food Act compatible systems. Harris Meats had all the approvals, but at our scale it seems that no-one else does. Your lambs are drafted, weighed up and ready to transport on next Thursday all to no avail.

We are permitted to home kill animals, but only for us. This can be done by us, or by a home kill contractor who will pack the various cuts in his certified butchery. Uninspected slaughter can yield meat only for personal consumption by the owner of the animal.

Bought in Dinkel/spelt

You know we were running short of Dinkel/spelt! We tried to source locally grown Dinkel/spelt....and we found some BioGro certified Dinkel/spelt from a partner farm not too far away from us. It is not much, what we could get, so the amounts we can can sell per order stays th. But isn't it great, Dinkel/spelt flour is available!!!

Less Dinkelflour per order, read below.....

We are really pleased to report that Milmore Downs spelt products are highly appreciated as quality products. Increasing numbers of people, both end consumers and commercial operations, are discovering it … but there is a down side. Our stocks are depleting fast!

The consequence is that we cannot supply you with the usual regular amounts if we want the flour to stretch through until the end of January 2019. Rather than come to a complete ‘sorry – sold out’ announcement in advance of the new seasons grain we’d like to suggest cooperation as an alternative by getting less per order. That is why you can't see the bigger amounts in the ordering lists. Thanks for your understanding.
