These Black Beluga Lentils are grown near Killarney Manitoba and are cleaned in in Lundar. Named after beluga caviar, they retain their dark colour and don’t get mushy, making them perfect for salads and other mixed dishes. Beyond their culinary uses, beluga lentils are a bit of a rarity in the food world. They get their rich dark blue colour from a concentration of anthocyanins, the antioxidants also present in blue and purple berries, that are thought to reduce the risks of cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

Adagio Acres is a small family farm of 80 acres located in the Interlake region of Manitoba. Crops are grown organically, relying on long rotations with perennial grasses to manage weeds and build soil health instead of using chemicals, and fertilize fields with manure to help close the nutrient loop. They also place high value on natural biodiversity and maintaining natural habitat for wildlife. Small fields are interspersed with marshland and forests, making them excellent habitat for deer, elk, coyotes, birds, and insects.
