The Funkiest of the Funky Oumas

We at Karnallie are so glad and grateful to feature Funky Ouma as One of our Suppliers.

“Funky Ouma” is the result of a very funky ouma of 10 grandchildren that’s been playing around with food and spices all her life, but only decided at 67 to start her own brand together with her youngest daughter Johannita Eksteen.

Funky ouma offers wonderful farm fresh herb filled salts and spice They use natural course from Walvis Bay and the Himalayas, the salt is ideal for cooking, braai, marinating, baking bread or even just a table salt. It’s a tastier healthier and natural substitute to your everyday salts and spice.

Funky Ouma offers a variety of salts, all packed in grinders, big and small. All mixtures are filled with quality naturally home-grown herbs e.g. rosemary, oregano, other natural ingredients such as onion flakes, sweet peppers, dried chillies, lemon zest, black and exotic green and red peppercorns, and coriander.

The factory and herb garden and lemon orchard is on the farm where we live. The best part about our business, is that it allows Johannita to be a mother and involve the kids in daily and be there when they need her, and to allow ouma to be ouma and have fun with the kids in between work.

Funky Ouma was started by a dynamic mom and daughter duo. Anneke van Rooyen and Johannita Eksteen, on their farm outside Paarl. The idea was born many years ago when Anneke’s husband was ill with cancer, and they removed all preservatives and colourants from his diet. They played around with salt and natural flavours and saw a gap in the market for healthy cooking and braai-salt mixtures. Four years ago, Funky Ouma was born and named after Anneke, who despite being mother of four and grandmother of 10, remains funky, with-it and totally involved with her family and business.
