Hi James in Nelson, I have water kefir grains you can have. We are moving from Chch up to Motueka mid-late Feb so let me know if you still want the grains then :)

Hi Katie

I know it was a while ago that you said you had water kefir grains - but hoping you might still have some?? I can buy or swap for free range eggs &/or lemons/grapefruit! Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

Hi, I'm in Red Beach (Auckland area) and am looking for a Kombucha scoby, some Caspian sea yoghurt starter and milk kefir grains.   I'm happy to swap for some organic rye sourdough starter, plenty of water kefir grains and some viili yoghurt starter, a jar of Sauerkraut or some hops root (in a few weeks time).  Cheers:)

Hi Doreen

I have some kombucha scobys and milk kefir and would like to swap for some Sauerkraut. Email me on if you're keen and we can meet up to swap :)

Hi, I have an excess of Kombucha scoby's, Im in Nelson.

Hi there, I am after water kefir grains, milk kefir grains and a kombucha scooby please.  

I have a dehydrator and frequently dehydrate bananas and tomatoes and I also ferment my own kraut.  

I'm happy to swap any of these for the kefir grains and scooby, or I can simply pay the postage costs or pick up if anyone can offer me some.  Thanks very much.

Hi Lisa, good on your for getting your own kraut going.  Where abouts in NZ are you? 

I've just seen from your profile you are in Auckland.  There are sure to be some locals who could help you out.  I'm in Tauranga until the end of the month.  I have kombucha scoby and milk kefir grains to spare, but maybe someone closer has some to spare.  Happy Waitangi weekend, Susan. 

Hi Lisa, I'm in West Auckland, I should have some spare now or very soon for all the things you mention, and keen to try some of your kraut!  Email me


I am in Mt Albert Auckland and have all 3 (I need a few days to get another scooby going, but you get the idea). You can friend me and I can give you contact info if you'd like.

Hi Folks, I requested some kefir (milk and water) as well as kamboucha and caspian yoghurt earlier and despite some encouraging replies nothing eventuated for some unknown reason. I am trying to change my diet to combat obesity and diabetes as well as to delay any age related issues where possible. I have nothing to trade sadly but happy to pay for postage. I will offer any surplus on oooby when i have it. I have some experience with sourdough culture and baking so happy to pass on any knowledge i have. Regards Rob. ps I live in Waihi.

I am in Tauranga and have all of these, are you this way at all?
