Fuel your family

With Fresh, In-season organic food

Our Story

As with most people in their youth, I took my health for granted and had no reason to question the food we eat and the environment we live in. However, a health crisis led me to discover the role environmental toxins play in our general health and wellbeing which further led me to explore the availability of certified organic/biodynamic fruit and vegetables in the Young region. This interest coincided with a point in my life where I was searching for a new professional challenge and change from my career as an Occupational Therapist. Therefore, when a gap in the market appeared with the supply of organic fruit and vegetables, the concept of The Gathered Green evolved.  My goal was to connect country people with fresh certified organic produce at an affordable price.   

As with most businesses, putting the concept into reality requires a lot of hard work, which would not have been possible without the support of my husband Ben. Ben co-owns an agricultural software company while also working with our Farm Manager Shaun, to help coordinate our regeneratively run beef and lamb properties at Crowther and Koorawatha. We now have three children Owen, Maeve and Lani and have recently moved into our new off the grid sustainably built home on our Crowther property.  Our family are loving the farming lifestyle and being able to reconnect with the land and the associated animals and wildlife after many years of living the town life.  

After embarking on the transition to regenerative agriculture we have recently  decided to share our grass fed meat products with our customers through Crowther Lane. We now supply regular Beef and Lamb Boxes delivered to Young or available for pick up from our scheduled pick up time slots at Forbes, Parkes, Cowra and Wagga. For more information on this journey, descriptions of our Beef and Lamb Boxes and our ordering system, please see Crowther Lane in the main menu section of the website. 

Thank you for taking interest in The Gathered Green. We look forward to providing you and your family fresh, tasty and locally grown produce with the added peace of mind of being free of toxic chemicals. I welcome all enquiries so please do not hesitate to contact me via phone or email.
