We have 2 programs and you can be in both if you like. Must be local to Northeast Texas or willing to drive.
#1. Our Affiliate Program- This is a way for farmers, ranchers, homesteaders and gardeners to get their freeze drying for free.
An affiliate brings us food they produced on their own. Garden, animals, etc. We freeze dry it for free in exchange for 1/2 of what you bring to us. Free to you. It comes back to you packaged in Mylar bags for 25-30 year storage (prior to opening package). Can be picked up or shipped with shipping fees.
There is a limit to how many affiliates we can sponsor depending on the product they produce. Check with us to see if we are accepting your products at the moment. If not, you can always become a regular member. You can also be a regular member if you don't want to share your harvest. (Some people like to put it back for a rainy day. A habit we approve of :).
#2. A regular member pays the discounted rate for us to freeze dry for them at least once a month. No membership fees. No contracts. We trust people. One batch per month is discounted 33% off of our regular price of $60 to $40. Each additional batch per calendar month is discounted 50% TO $30 per batch.
Paid services must be paid in advance of freeze drying and we accept Facebook Messenger Pay, Paypal, debit/credit cards. No checks please.
* 1 batch is equal to approximately 8-10 lbs of fruits and veggies or 5-6 lbs of meat or 1 gallon of liquid such as milk or cream.
* Fatty meats do not freeze dry well. I would recommend canning those.
* Butter and Honey do not process well.
* All foods that come to us for freeze drying need to be pre-prepared, such as washed, sliced, diced etc. Sizes for slicing or cubes would need to be in the 1" range such as slices of pork or chicken pieces no thicker than 1". Fruits or veggies with skin on them, such as grapes or tomatoes should be sliced in half or in slices. You can bring them to us in zipper bags.
