Hi, we've recently moved house and in the process my water kefir grains got lost.  Does anyone have extras going spare?  I'm happy to swap for kombucha scobies and either pick up or pay postage?  I'm based near Pukekohe but am happy to travel.  I also need to find a raw milk source! Thank you!

Hi Joanne,

do you still have some kefir grains available? I've been thinking about giving this a try and I'd love to give this a go. I'm in chch weekdays so could pick up.


Hello all...we are newly in Christchurch and desiring to be 'cultured' in a fermenting kind of way.  I would love to be put in touch with someone who has:

milk kefir grains to spare and some sourdough starter, if possible, too, please?

Am very happy to pay something for them as we are thin on the ground, literally, with anything to trade at present.

warm regards,

Wendy 0212339878

My friend Sue Wells has sourdough Starter in Chch. Searching for Wellswood Consulting should find her, or the Facebook group "Sourdough Supporters Society" which she set up.

Hi all

I have Kombucha scobies available for free.  I can also provide a bit of kombucha starter to get you started (although this won't be ready until next Sunday - if there is a lot of demand, I may have to space out when I give them out (due to lack of starter)) - so if you have your own starter no worries.

I am in Mt Eden, Auckland

Hi Madeleine, I would love a scoby if still available? I'm also in Mt Eden.

Thanks in advance,
