Welcome to Gathering Place Trading,

Where We Direct Source the Best Organic Cayenne Chili Powder

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 which grows food in incredible and sustainable multi-tiered food forests. Upon visiting the farms, we quickly knew these were people and a project we wanted to support.

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.

Planet Over Profit
