Gather By, an Australian food security initiative delivering cutting edge health and environmental projects committed to regenerating the environment. We contribute to community and pollinator restoration, promote the benefits of plant-based medicine and connect other primary advocates and businesses in sustainability with conscious consumers across the world.
With regional community support, Gather By has developed a high income, low maintenance regenerative farming model producing pure, potent and raw premium Manuka honey to meet enormous global demand through its worldwide Medicinal Honey Channel.
Years of research and 10’s thousands kilometres went into locating which parent plants of the 87 varieties of the Australian Leptospermum would contribute maximum potency in the honey harvested. The nectar is tested for dihydroxyacetone (DHA) content selecting 15 of the hyper-DHA plants for propagation. During the honeybee process DHA is converted to Methlyglyoxal (MGO) which is an indicator of Manuka potency. Our selected Leptospermum bushes are cloned for bioregion diversity maximising potency, growth and extended nectar flow.
