The Story So Far
This passion came to life and originated in 2015 during a momentous conversation between two friends over coffee at the beach. They realized that most people were craving more from life, especially when it came to holistic health and they wanted to create a more accessible and natural contribution to the world using the knowledge that they each have. These friends are both parents (Amelia has four daughters and Susan with four boys) that found themselves in a new season of life, ready for a new challenge and chapter. They agreed that it had to be something that both of them were passionate about, namely Overall Health from Nature. They are a dynamic team as Amelia has a background in agriculture and Susan has been passionately studying veld herbs since the year 2000.
In May 2015 they started by setting up two hydroponic greenhouses planting ginger. They quickly discovered the wonderful potential of the baby ginger plants and then decided to plant turmeric. As they and their business grew, they later developed turmeric and ginger pastes and added medicinal wild herbs which created unique and healthy products!
In Susan’s own words, she says, “I grew up on a farm between George and Mossel Bay and had the privilege of always being in and around nature. With a lot of time available I learned to ‘hear the voice’ of the veld. After getting married and moving to Robertson, I joyfully found myself on a farm in nature again and immediately continued pursuing my passion to study wild herbs and veld plants. I realized how many medicinal herbs there were, some edible and others having a lovely aroma causing stressful thoughts and tensions to evaporate. I would like to make people aware of the importance as well as the benefits of fresh, natural herbs and nutrition from the earth.”
Amelia tells how she grew up on a beautiful farm, surrounded by mountains and the famous Breë River. She was surrounded all day by this natural sanctuary and found safety in it.
“In my High School years, I developed a curiosity for healthy foods and to live healthily,” she says. “My own personal journey and relationship with food has greatly influenced my life. To have a healthy body you must have a healthy mind and not the other way around. We are what we eat! We started farming with ginger and turmeric because of their powerful medicinal values and therefore we bless our plants and our products with love and with kindness.”
