Producers & Suppliers


This is a dangerous exercise, trying to list all those who provide us with their goodies!  If we have left out anyone, please email us and give us a loving nudge!  It was a rewarding realisation of just how many locals are represented here.  Leaving the smallest footprint possible is important to us, in our purchasing as well as in our own gardening/preserving/cooking practices.

Tease Teas We offer 8 teas from these wonderful people!  And sell some little taster packs too.  Nothing better than a good cuppa, made in a pot with real leaves, served on a tray with a china cup and saucer, little milk jug and another pot of hot water.  The only thing to do is to decide who will be Mum and pour!

A little about us

Here at MannaFest we care ….. about people and about our world. (Did we leave out anything?!)
And we enjoy sharing these passions with you, our friends and customers. Where possible, we use everything we grow in our extensive home garden.
Fresh is best, of course, and then there is freezing, bottling, drying, jamming, saucing, jellying, pasting, pulping etc.
