Collection: Vanilla

Gathering Place vanilla beans are fresh, fragrant, and rich in flavour.

They are grown in Southern Indian farming cooperatives and are certified organic. The vanilla vines climb up coconut trees, and are often alternated tree for tree with black pepper, in what are known as "food forests."

Our vanilla beans are hand harvested and cured in small batches by Indian farmers who are paid a living wage and who live and breathe sustainable agriculture. Rainwater is harvested, endangered plants are cared for, and biogas is used for fuel.
