About Augason Farms

In 1972 Phil Augason was inspired to develop an economical but nutritious whey-based milk alternative that he named “Morning Moo’s®.” Morning Moo’s is a great food storage item because of its long shelf-life, and a great everyday product. It really does taste like 2% milk, and we think it is a great accessory to your food storage supply.

In the past, Augason Farms mainly produced basic meals such as creamed wheat, oatmeal, and pancake mix that were resold by other food storage companies. Then Augason Farms started selling “all-in-one” kits that were designed for one person for one month. These kits have many basic items such as freeze-dried eggs, dried strawberries, or broccoli stems.

Augason Farms also has a nice range of gluten-free meals with 65 different options. There is also a gluten-free complete meal pack that packages together some of their best selling gluten-free items.

More recently, Augason Farms has started packaging and selling traditional food storage kits such as “one person for one year” items. This allows the company to compete directly with other retail food storage suppliers. Also, Augason Farms can be purchased in WalMart meaning the company has met and passed the strict tests of the world’s number one retailer.

Old Logo

Augason Farms re-branded, opting for a more modern, simple logo. Here is their old logo, for reference. You may continue to see this in old packaging or other places for some time as the new logo continues to be phased in.

    I recently ordered a product from Augason Farms and am happy with the product itself, and the price of the product. I feel like I got a good deal on it. My only complaint with the company is the time it took to actually receive my merchandise. It took more than 2 weeks from order to delivery and when I called the company to inquire, the person I spoke to told me that “they were out last week for a conference”. Okay. Fair enough, but did the ENTIRE company go to the conference and just decide to suspend their business and NOT take or fill orders for a week? Sounds kind of bizarre to me. It’s not a terribly huge deal I suppose, but if that is how the company normally does business, I consider it a little “bush league” and unprofessional. Overall however, my experience was not bad, per se. Could have been a little better customer service though.

    Remember folks this is S-U-R-V-I-V-A-L food, however, I would eat this stuff every night for the rest of my life if I had too. Great company, nutritional great tasting food. All you need is water a gun “with many rounds” and blessings from the Lord above!

    Review part 2, I guess. New review, some of the same old problems.

    I placed another order for (1) one product and the very next day received an email that advised me I should expect to wait 10-14 days for processing, due to heavier than normal order volume. Another order, and another delay in my order does begin to get annoying.

    Having said that, I contacted the company, and they expedited my order and even included a free product for me to sample. Look, that is fair enough. I’m not going to bad mouth AF, but I just think that the operation is run on a bit of a “Bush League” scale. It’s almost like AF is in over their heads with filling orders. But….again, they responded to me promptly and tried to throw me a bone to satisfy me. so I can live with that. I just know now going in that delays will likely be a perennial problem if/when I order from them. Not a bad company, but will frustrate you a little at times.

    After placing my order is was advised it would be 7-15 work days before my order would be shipped. The 15th day my order arrived on a Saturday. I am pleased with what I purchased and the free sample they enclosed. 3 days after I received my order I got an email with my tracking number. Just thought that was funny. Now knowing their backlog of orders and such I would still order from them again.

    I tried to place a large order but the shipping address was different from the debit card billing address. Thus the system red flagged the order. So I logged out.
    However, the attempt caused my checking account to have funds held for up to three business days. This was due to Augason Farms choice of credit processing.

    No one was available to take my first three calls except automation.

    Eventually after a lot of back and forth with my bank and Augason, a fax was sent to release the unnecessarily tied up funds. This took hours. Never again.

    Part Two,

    The hold on my funds which were generated by a non order have reappeared on my bank statement. So after hours of dealing with Augason, I am back to square one, and without my money.

    This companys laid back, Ma and Pa family business attitude is now annoying.

    So unprofessional because they are unwilling to address this issue, it has happened to other customers, because based upon the numbers of sales versus problems, the priority is not to upgrade the ordering process.

    For those having issues go online and order at Walmart.com and they are cheaper if you order through them.

    It was nice to hear all the complaints from those who had billing addresses different from their shipping addresses (stupid), and were in a big hurry for a long term decision product, but it’s too bad no one could review the actual product. Despite the service from the company, the product itself MAY be great, WHO KNOWS? It is certainly available from other sources.

      Cathy,

      Yes, some of their products are Non-GMO and some are not. To see which products are Non-GMO you can go to their website, http://www.augasonfarms.com/index.php?route=common/home, and under each product you can read the nutrition facts where it will state if a product GMO free or not.
