Timeless Organic de Puy Lentils

$7.00

de Puy Lentils are stunning blue-green mottled seeds reminiscent of round stones polished smooth by mountain streams. Given their smooth texture, spicy flavor notes, and ability to hold their shape when cooked, it’s no wonder that this variety has been the lentil-of-choice for gourmet European and American chefs. Traditionally grown in le Puy region of south central France, these French-style lentils are exceptionally well suited to Montana, where its cool, dry environment accentuates their beauty and flavor. (100% organic, 16 oz)

Description

Timeless was given birth in 1987 when four organic farmers from central Montana – Bud Barta, Jim Barngrover, Tom Hastings, and David Oien – came together to grow a self-reseeding leguminous cover crop called George Black Medic, which had been developed at Montana State University by Dr. Jim Sims, and named for his father. While Black Medic was a great idea, it turned out not to be a viable business for the “four guys enterprise.” Undaunted, the Timeless boys, who were among the first organic farmers in Montana, remained committed to crop rotations, natural fertilizer, and alternative agriculture. Knowing that they and other organic farmers needed viable cropping and market alternatives, they turned their focus to “pulse crops,” edible annual legumes like peas and lentils. Now in their third decade, Timeless remains committed to sustainable agriculture, good health, and the local community. USDA-organic, certified by Montana Department of Agriculture
