Honeyville Farms Review and Giveaway!

 
 
Honeyville Farms has been a producer of high quality freeze dried foods for years now.  I have often seen their products on the shelves but have never had an opportunity to try them out.  So when Honeyville offered me a chance to review some of their products I was thrilled.  I try to keep a good supply of food in reserve for our family in case of emergencies or job loss.  Our family has gone through some hard times already and I learned that having emergency food stores for when bad things go down is very important.
 
People always think of emergency food as a preparation for nuclear war or zombie Apocalypse or something equally unlikely.  But what about having a good supply of non perishable foods for things like job loss, or illness?  Both of those scenarios happen frequently and having food storage is just as important as having an emergency fund.
 
Honeyville Farms has a huge selection of different foods, not just freeze dried emergency supplies, but grains, pasta, baking supplies, seeds, and beans and lentils.  The prices on their site are very reasonable compared to the stores.
 
 
 Honeyville sent me a selection of their freeze dried fruits to try out.  We love to eat freeze dried fruits on our cereals in the morning or in my homemade granola mix.  The freeze dried fruits come in two different sizes, a large number 10 can and the smaller cans.  I like the small cans for every day use because we can use the fruit up before it looses its "crunch" that comes from the freeze drying.  The larger cans I would use for long term food storage for emergencies.
 
 Honeyville Farms has a HUGE selection of freeze dried  fruits to choose from, many of them not carried by most emergency food companies.  They carry strawberries, bananas, apples, apricots, blackberries, mango's, blueberries, grapes, peaches, pineapple, and raspberries.
 
 
 
Hard Red WheatI tried the apples, blueberries, and strawberries.   All Honeyville fruits can be eaten right out of the can or used in baking.  Our favorite was definitely the strawberries.  I love them on cereal in the morning.
 
I would recommend Honeyville Farms to anyone looking for food storage solutions or for your home cooking and baking needs.  They run specials every month and also have great shipping rates!
