Welcome to Gathering Place Trading,

Where We Direct Source the Best Organic Cut & Sifted Ginger

About Our Indian Farming Cooperative

We support 1400 farmers under a cooperative umbrella covering close to 10,000 acres of certified organic land in Karnataka State. Our true cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, cayenne, smoked chili flakes, vanilla beans, and stevia come from these certified organic farms, some of which are FairTrade certified.

These Indian farmers plant food forests, also called inter-cropping, where multiple crops grow harmoniously and life thrives, rather than mono-cropping, which negatively impacts the soil and the ecosystem. This system ensures the farmer gets more income from the same piece of land. The farmers are supported every step of the way by the cooperative, learning about seed procurement, building soil, harvesting, storage, and food safety practices.

Our community sourcing partners have certified organic state-of-the-art processing facilities, international food safety certification, allergen-free declarations, and kosher certification. This results in the highest quality products delivered fresh to Gathering Place several times a year.

India Reviving Their Tradition of Sustainable Farming

Our first trip to India was 12 years ago and our hearts were immediately engaged by the people, the spirituality, the culture, and the food. We were fortunate to discover a wonderful organic cooperative in Karnataka State. Upon visiting the farms,we quickly knew these were people and a project we wanted to support. Not only are the products incredibly high quality, but they are always fresh, meaning our customers are always receiving the current year’s harvest.

Since first partnering with this cooperative, we have learned much more about the history of agriculture in the region. Prior to the advent of modern agriculture and its insistence on massive pesticide use, India was known for its sustainable, small-scale, subsistence farms; they were the mainstay of every Indian community. For a period of time, Monsanto tried to insert itself but the crops failed and the people rebelled. Now the organic food movement is once again spreading a healing balm across the country, bettering farmers’ lives and increasing household incomes.

Ginger Tea Magic

Hands down, this is the best kind of dried ginger for tea! Used on its own or mixed with other herbs and spices, it's excellent prepared in any way. If you enjoy ginger tea, I highly recommend keeping a bag of this stocked in your cupboard or pantry.

Thank you so much for your amazing review of our Ginger Cut and Sifted, Indra! So happy to hear that you enjoy it in your tea! Having dried Ginger on hand is so useful in the winter season. If you love Lemon and Orange, we have dried pieces of those as well (the Lemon is my personal favourite!).
