Use over and over again and if you look after them, they will look after you. Buy once and never buy again. The packages you get in supermarkets or from MadMillie are just a few strains of kefir bacteria and yeast and you have to continue to buy them to make kefir. By far not as beneficial for your health and your pocket.
The grains are grown sustainably and totally waste free with fresh milk from a dairy cow. No plastic packaging is produced in the production process. Up to 10 litres of kefir are fed to calves and pigs everyday on the farm, resulting in no waste product. The grains are grown in a certified kitchen, are professionally packed in a little pouch, secured with newspaper and are shipped in a cardboard box. Impossible to find more sustainable and a higher quality of kefir grains.
Please read the reviews from our happy customers. With our grains you can rest assured that they are from professionals that grow a lot of kefir grains every week and have years of experience doing so. Kefir is tested monthly with a microscope to make sure there is a large variety of bacteria and yeast present.
Making kefir is a very easy process. We have created a video (see below) to show you just how easy it is. You will get full directions via email 2-3 days before they are shipped to you.
We have not had any grains being spoilt in transit when they arrive within one week. The parcel is tracked and insured and a tracking number will be supplied if they do not arrive within 2 days.
Shipping is once a week on Mondays (please check the date above). Shipping is $6.90 ($10.60 rural) with overnight courier, no signature required. You can also arrange pick up from us in Pigeon Bay (contact: email@example.com). Please select rural delivery if you supply us with a rural address to avoid delays.

More info on Kefir: Milk kefir comes from the Caucasus, a mountainous region where the European continent meets Asia. It’s here that milk kefir earned its reputation as an elixir of long life and a medicinal tonic. Milk kefir grains are a gelatinous mass harboring a generous variety of bacteria and yeast. They are used to make continual batches of milk kefir. There’s no actual grain in kefir grains. They are called grains because they are small and numerous, like grains of sand. Kefir is closely related to cultures found in raw milk and our digestive tract, making it an excellent probiotic.
When kefir grains are added to milk, the bacteria begin feasting on the lactose in the milk. The lactose nourishes the grains, allowing them to grow and reproduce. Kefir has significanlty less lactose than fresh milk and is much more digestible for lactose intolerant people.
