MEET OUR FARM FRIENDS

At Luvaberry, collaboration is at the heart of what we do. 

We work closely with other makers, bakers and growers to create innovative products using our strawberries, herbs and award-winning Luvaberry freeze-dry range.

Rosanne from Stone & Lea

Stone & Lea

Stone & Lea was founded in 2015 by Rosanne Stone: a young self taught cook with a love and passion for food. All goods are prepared by hand by Rosanne, with no added preservatives. Rosanne keeps with the traditional cooking methods including cooking in small batches, hand stirring each pot, and hand pouring each jar. Such methods ensure the art of preserving is not lost, but now alive more than ever.

Rosanne has been working with Mandy for over four years now, using the Luvaberry ‘waste berries’ to make her award winning jams such as Strawberry & Lavender and Strawberry & Finer Limes.

A huge hit last year, Rosanne’s herb butter made using Luvaberry herbs sage and thyme will be available again. Guaranteed to sell out! So buy quick and add to some roast potatoes for a gorgeous flavour.

Kokopod

Back in the early days of LuvaBerry freeze-dry, Mandy was part of the 2018 Food Grow Coastal Accelerator Programme. This is where she met the driven brains behind Kokopod – Brigid.

Inspired by a trip to Europe when she was younger, Brigid’s passion for Australian made artisan chocolate has only grown stronger. A 2019 Food & Agribusiness winner at the scbusinessawards, Brigid & her team are constantly working to develop & perfect new & innovative ideas with a focus on quality & attention to detail. 

Woking with Brigid is always exciting and the Kokopod products are truly gorgeous. You can find Luvaberry in their Strawberry Milkshake chocolate bar and the famous freeze-dry strawberry wrapped in white chocolate – HEAVEN

Zoe from Black Lemonade Bakery

Zoe first met Mandy at the Grow Coastal Accelerator program in 2018. They then started conspiring all things chocolate + berries to dream up the perfect collaboration. 

That’s where the Raspberry Choc Fudge Brownie was born! 

Zoe started baking “free from” recipes 18 plus years ago inspired by her Grans love of good old fashioned home baking together with making “happier” tummies. 

Black Lemonade Bakery believes that vegan, gluten, dairy + egg free treats don’t have to be bland, boring or ordinary… they can be extraordinary! 

Two busy bees

A recent collaboration, we are proud to work with this family honey business – Two Busy Bees. 

The honey is made by starting with a special reserve aged honey that is set aside for at least a year to allow a unique deep flavour to develop naturally. Then its carefully combined with fragrant liquid honey then freeze dried raspberry powder and free dried strawberry powder are added gradually and its all whipped very slowly.

Poured into jars and set over time naturally. This slow long process creates the most unique product that is a delight for you to enjoy. A divinely delicious creamy and smooth pot set natural honey. The creamiest and most buttery texture with a pretty pink blush hue and a delicious hint of summer berries!

Amaroo

Amaroo means “beautiful place”.
Maria runs a small lifestyle farm on the outskirts of Wamuran, approximately 60 kms north of Brisbane. Her aim is to share in the excess bounty from their little farm so, depending on the season, Maria offers an ever-changing variety of produce.

One of the best sellers last year, Amaroo chutney will be back! Maria has also been busy working with other Luvaberry products creating a gorgeous lemon and finger lime curd.

Little white goats cheese

Little White Goat Cheese is a small, family-run producer of lovingly handcrafted, fresh and seasonal goat, buffalo, camel and cow cheese. It is run by Karen Lindsay from her small farm in Wamuran, nestled among acres of banana plantations in the hinterlands north of Brisbane.


Karen takes a sustainable and ethical approach to managing the farm, personally overseeing the milking and breeding of the 80-strong herd of goats.
