Timeless Organic Pardina Lentils

$7.00

Pardina Lentils are often called Spanish Brown and are seldom available in America as certified organic. They are the lentils of choice in the Mediterranean and Spain. They have a strong nutty flavor and remain firm when cooked (20-25 minutes), thus, a great choice for recipes that require a little texture, like a good pasta e lenticchie or a pasta salad. (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
