Kefir - searching for kefir grains

Hello everybody!
Our children love Kefir! So far we bought bio kefir in coop. But recently the stopped selling it. (. We sent coop a complain form but they said they will check that product again but not sure if it would appear again in their shop. Now i do not know where to buy!!! It is really healthy and good. I would like to make it myself but don't know where to buy or get the kefir grains. If somebody cares for this, or have kefir grains, or know where i can get it - please share with me! Thank you!

I'd give you some if I had any, but unfortunately I don't anymore. They are however available for purchase on Ricardo for a relatively small amount if you don't feel like waiting to find someone who has extra grains.

Sorry this is off topic, but I have had the same problem at Coop with other products, usually cosmetics. I find something I really like, then the next thing they stop selling it!

It's really annoying, isn't it?

Just visiting Basel but found Water Kefir grains at the following location near Marketplatz

Chruterhusli D. & D. Rebetez
Geschaftsfuhrung

Gerbergasse 69. 4051 Basel
Telefon 061 269 9120
info@chrueterhuesli.ch
www.chrueterhuesli

I hope to take it home (without spoiling it) to the Philippines where we have a coconut Oil Factory and will make a mix of coconut water and Kefir which should be quite nutritious! (better than throwing it out when we make our coconut oil) July 13, 2015 (wish I could stay for the Tattoo this coming weekend)

Now I have to find out how to use it and to make it grow into more doses! Last week I didn't even know what the word meant, but now, thanks to Google search, I know a lot more, but still learning!

There is at the yogurt section in M-Parc at Dreispitz.

She lives not in Zurich. She lives near. I can give you her mobile phone, or there is a group in FB and a women goes often to Maya (woman makes Kefir) and takes Kefir and cottage cheese in Zurich.
I know it is not able to go to Maya by train, it is possible just by car.
