It says it on their elegant package and nothing could be more true: unique chickpeas! Gifted with versatility, these good-for-you Agrifarm chickpeas are grown in small family farms in Northern and Central Greece. What's more their "purely" Greek identity nestles within packaging which apart from being handmade and inviting, tells you a story that has led it all the way to prestigious awards!
Agrifarm chickpeas come from the fertile regions of Northern and Central Greece where they are grown following integrated management principles that keep them away from pesticides and chemicals. They are part of Agrifarm's ambitious Family Farms Project which means they come from small, Greek family farms where agriculture is a way of life and a link to tradition. They're among the leading natural sources of protein and their impressive nutritional value makes them the ideal choice when it comes to a balanced diet. Chickpea proteins are what makes these super pulses stand apart from other legumes. Standing at a content of 20-30%, chickpea proteins have all the aminoacids the body needs and rank among the much-touted proteins of milk, soy, and meat. They are also an excellent source of carbohydrates, metals, and vitamins. The common practice of recent years to consume chickpeas without their skin has been losing popularity since it has been discovered that it is chickpea skin that is chock full of calcium and dietary fiber both of which the body needs for its seamless function. Those delicious pulses are also nutritional overachievers and interwoven with traditional Greek cuisine. Found in every Greek pantry, they are cooked in a variety of ways, releasing their fulfilling aroma in the kitchen and proving irresistible sirens for those who are looking for a full, satisfying meal. In the old times, their consumption was linked to Greece's fasting periods but the landscape of gastronomy has recently changed. Their complex sensory traits and nutritional goodness could not go unnoticed and they have now gained their rightful place in everyday nutrition. It couldn't be otherwise: their flawless credentials make them a shoo-in for Mediterranean Diet ambassadors and shortlist them for praise and prizes!

The model is an Agrifarm initiative targeting the creation and growth of a specific business culture for all parties involved in the supply chain of agricultural products.

Prep & Usage
Place chickpeas in a cooking pot and soak them overnight. They'll soften, require less cooking time, and go easy on your digestive system.
You can go traditional and make a thick, melt-in-the mouth revithada chickpea soup or come up with imaginative gourmet treats such as clay-baked chickpeas with chopped tomatoes and herbs or fried chickpea patties with a yogurt & mint dressing. If in doubt, go for a salad of chickpeas, spring onions, and spinach or a crowd-pleasing hummus. Whatever you do, you're using your fitness smarts!
