Local Dehy: Vegetarian and Vegan dehydrated meals, produced in small batches at Lake Hawea, Otago.

We found that a single serve of meals on the market was not enough to satisfy our hunger after a day of adventuring, but a double serve was too much. That’s why our meals are packaged in a hearty 1.5 single serve.

We live in a wee house in Lake Hawea, just outside of Wanaka, with our ginger cat Kehu, and mountains all around us. We make small batches of dehy in our custom built food trailer that sits in our driveway. We add lots of fresh veggies, toast and grind whole spices, and cook each batch with care. It’s then dehydrated and packaged by hand, ready for you to take on your next adventure!

10% for FMC members, with code FMC20 at checkout.   www.localdehy.co.nz
