Hi, we’re Bronwen and Michael Redgate, founders of Hive & Gobbler. In 2015 we established Banjo Ridge, our Dungog-based alpaca farm.
Our beautiful alpaca fibre, and the search for a viable way to get it from our paddocks to those who love it, planted the seed for establishing Hive & Gobbler.
We asked ourselves, how we could do this whilst also supporting other Australian fibre growers, mini-mills, buy-from-the-bush businesses, local artists and artisans?
How could we help re-connect us all to provenance and how things are made through slow living ideas and craft?
In mid-2020 we opened the doors to our destination store in Dungog, a cute regional town we love, just north of Newcastle, NSW. A store to host workshops promote sustainability and source a huge range of products with directly traceable provenance and footprints which are as light possible.
We’re excited by our new venture and look forward to growing it over time into something special for all to enjoy!
