Freeze-dried and dehydrated food; baking ingredients
Honeyville (used to be called Honeyville Grain) is an original manufacturer of bulk food storage ingredients that sells mainly to other food storage resellers. Honeyville has been around for fifty years and is widely considered one of the best outlets for quality freeze-dried and dehydrated food. The reason we don’t feature any Honeyville Grain products at this website is because Honeyville chooses not to create “just-add-water” or truly ready-to-eat meals.
But if you feel comfortable combining bulk ingredients such as fruits, grains, or vegetables—basically cooking—then Honeyville is a great way to go. Just don’t underestimate the difficulty or time required to use a recipe to cook your food—especially in case of emergency. Honeyville has made some efforts to get into ready-to-eat food storage meals with their “Ranchers Cut” brand, but in the past they mainly resold Wise Food Storage for this category.
The Honeyville website is very well laid out and easy to navigate. Shipping is only $4.49 to anywhere in the United States.
We think Honeyville is a great place to buy additions to your regular food storage. For example, if you have a three-month supply of ready-to-eat meals, it’s not a bad idea to supplement that with freeze-dried fruits or vegetables to give yourself some variety and extra calories. If you are looking for easy-to-prepare, just-add-water meals then you will want to explore other food storage companies.
