Our Sourcing

At Barnes Naturals, we understand the deep connection that exists between nature and the human body, and have been connecting people with the healing power of nature for over 140 years. We source only the finest naturally bioactive ingredients to craft ‘living’ products that work in harmony with your body to nourish your health and wellbeing.

Manuka Honey

We offer a selection of active Manuka honey, ranging from an activity level of MGO 30+ to super strength MGO 1050+. This honey is proudly 100% Australian Manuka Honey. Every single batch of Barnes Naturals Manuka honey is independently tested to ensure authenticity and activity.

Every batch of Barnes Manuka Honey is subject to independent third party testing, and complies with the requirements of the Australian Manuka Honey Association (AMHA) certification.

Organic Apples

The Apples used to make our Apple Cider Vinegar are sourced from pristine Certified Organic Apple Orchards in New Zealand. Depending on seasonality, the apple varieties used are Granny Smith, Braeburn and Jazz.

Certified Organic Apples are free from conventional chemical pesticides, fungicides  and herbicides. They are also free from genetic modification and any other artificial farming practices.

Organic Honey

The non-active honey used in our products is 100% Certified Organic Australian honey that we source from only the most skilful beekeepers who have gained organic certification inline with Australian Certified Organic standards.

This Certified Organic honey is produced predominantly in pristine national parks along the Northern New South Wales Coast and wild forest reserves in the Southern region of Western Australia.


We predominantly source our spices and herbs from regions in which they naturally grow and rigorously quality check every one of them to ensure purity and authenticity. For example, we use Certified Organic Turmeric that grows abundantly throughout India, and Certified Organic Ginger and Garlic from their native region in China.

At Barnes Naturals, we only use nature’s purest ingredients to craft our Naturally Active health foods. All of the ingredients used are Non-GMO and are responsibly sourced, ensuring they’re good for you and good for the planet.
