The pulses featured in our collection are selected and packaged by ‘Fenea Land’ and have been produced in Feneos, a 600m high mountain valley nestled between the 2,400m peaks of Helmos and Zyria in the north Peloponnese, where the rich and fertile land adds its own flavour to the environmentally produced products – land blessed by the gods through Artemis and Hercules.
The produce comes from local small-scale farmers, all of whom are land and product registered, who have developed their skills of cultivation from generation to generation, so ensuring the unique strains of the seeds used to provide the ultimate in terms of both quality and taste.
