Grown and harvested on the NSW coast

Grown and harvested right here on our family farm on the Mid-North Coast of New South Wales, our plantations of lemon myrtle, Tea-Tree, Lemon Scented Tea-Tree and Kunzea are cared for and curated by General Manager, Al Hutcherson. Al is passionate about biodiversity and sustainability in his farming and is constantly adding new Australian native plants to his thriving plantation.

Freshwater Farm & GoGo Juice

In early 2021, Allan noticed patches of the lemon myrtle trees in distress and decided to seek help from Neutrog’s R&D Manager, Dr. Uwe Stroeher. After sending soil samples to be examined by the Department of Primary Industries, Phytophthora cryptogea was identified as a present pathogen. Dr. Uwe determined the best help return the plants to good health would be to mix GOGO Juice with a biocontrol agent from his lab which had already shown promising signs of fighting other pathogens such as Pythium. Dr. Uwe prepared a 20L drum of the GOGO Juice and biocontrol agent mixture and sent it off to Freshwater Farm for trial on the effected plants.

“GOGO Juice has worked great, the loss of plants has stopped, and stressed plants have developed new shoots”

Allan Hutcherson

The results speak for themselves with Allan noticing a quick and significant turnaround of the health of the plants.

The discoloured foliage had returned to its natural shade of green, with the volume of the foliage also increasing back to healthy volumes. Freshwater Farm highly recommend GoGo Juice for your garden!
