Where do you buy your stuff in NZ

Postby WESTCOASTNZ » Mon Oct 15, 2012 10:29 pm

Currently I get:
Plastic Buckets 20L http://www.epiplastics.co.nz/?gclid=CK216_ng4LICFRBJpgodN3gA4Q
Vege Seeds http://www.kingsseeds.co.nz/shop/Organics/Organic+Vegetables.html
Grain Seeds either Trademe or http://www.koanga.org.nz/shop/seeds
Fruit Trees http://www.ediblegarden.co.nz/page.php?5
Wheat and grinders either Trademe or http://www.grainmills.co.nz/collections/grains-and-seeds
Glass Preserving Jars in bulk Trademe or http://www.millyskitchen.co.nz/millyskitchen/cart/results.cfm?category=30
Chickens in South Island http://www.chickenman.co/aboutchickens.html
Thinking about but think I've talked myself out of white meat rabbits - sooo cute http://www.chickenman.co/aboutrabbits.html

Does anyone have any trade secrets as to where they source their stuff? Or how they store their stuff ie I've heard BOC can put nitrogen or something in your grain buckets to get rid of pests yet some people just add bay leaves etc in the grain, and some people freeze their grain confused as what to try as grain is so expensive I'd hate to muck it up - how do you do it?

I've heard that to storage Grain and other dry foods in Plastic Buckets, is to Put Plastic bags in then Buckets then fill it with your Grain. Then vacuum the air out of them. Sealing it in until you need it.
I think the Americans use Mylar bags. No idea what they are called here.
