Homestead Lovers

A fledgling company based in Mannum South Australia specialising in innovative dried food products including survival food, instant meals, hiking and camping food, fruit powders, vegetable powders, out of the ordinary spice blends, fruit spices and much more. All preservative free and handmade from local produce.

Retired couple, Joy and Martin spent over 30 years in the North West of WA before moving to Mannum for a tree change. Joy has always had a fascination with food experimentation and after studying Homesteading and similar movements found their move to Mannum a perfect place to put everything into practice. Joy is the sole food creator while Martin works in the background building sheds, tending to the ever growing garden and sampling new products. We source locally grown, chemical free or organic produce and turn them into convenient, instant, preservative free food.

We offer a range of dried fruit and vegetable products, some are single fruit or vegetable or a mixture to create meals, stocks, spices etc. We have very recently included nut products to our list including dried nuts, nut flours, and activated nuts. We also make a popular supergreen powder which started as a by-product, it consists of fruit and vegetable greens that we don’t use in other products and bulked up with spinach and kale.
