I used to get it from my local produce store and it came from up around Narrabri way. Haven't seen it for ages. Perhaps a few inquiries with grain suppliers up that area might help?

Good luck James

Ken.

There was 3 people making/supplying a 'Greens and Grains' mix in NSW in the past. None of which have supplied in the last couple of years.

Australian Wildlife Supplies has a mix listed, don't know what's in it, am waiting for a order reply.

Got a batch from here years ago. The batch I got was grains, not much greens.
Enfield Produce

Think Elenbee might mix themselves?

Hi James,
I buy my GnG from the growers farms in Quirindi - Peter Slade, or Gunnedah - Matt Bryant, near Tamworth. Only problem is they need rain, go figure, to grow the stuff. Hence nothing is available until the draught breaks????? The last two seasons they have had none available to sell.

Mostly Barnyard grass seed plus has very small amounts each of niger, safflower, Johnson grass. 90% Barnyard grass though.
