Many freeze-dried food companies can help you with your food storage. But the question is, is it what your family wants and would crave for? Our Family Freeze Dry review looks at what makes this company a fit for you and your family.
Family Freeze Dry is a company owned and started by Dane and Lexi. It was inspired when they faced the challenges 2020 brought to people worldwide.
Between the lockdowns, earthquakes, storms, and job loss, they realized one thing. They weren’t remotely ready for an emergency. They had no food storage. And when they asked around, they found that they were not alone. So many people were in similar situations, and everyone was out panic buying.
So, they decided to create Family Freeze Dry and help people prepare with “food you already own.”
Family Freeze Dry offers several freeze-dried food options like:
Most of the products come in two sizes, which would fit your satisfaction and portion control needs.
You may think that Family Freeze Dry is just your typical freeze-dried food store. At first glance it may seem like it is. But if you look deeper into the company, you’ll see what sets them apart.
You have several options available for you for your food storage supply. There’s Mountain House, Wise, and Emergency Essentials. But you have to admit, their prices are a bit too much for everyday people to afford.
That’s why Family Freeze Dry is doing two things. One is offering a selection of freeze-dried food at an affordable cost. The other is offering freeze-drying services so you’ll have food that you know and love during emergencies.
Got that meat you bought last spring still in the freeze because you don’t have time to cook? Had so many left-overs from a family gathering that you can’t fit in your fridge? Did you just come from your grandma’s place, and she gave you a whole pot of her secret sauce?
Don’t let them go to waste. Family Freeze Dry will freeze-dry your surplus food from you, helping you cut down on food expenses and wastage. When stored properly, your food can last you 25 years without cold storage.
Family Freeze Dry will help you free your pantry in 4 easy steps:
Your choice here almost limitless, and you may find that you’ll go crazy over picking which one. What food can they freeze dry for you?
The choices are endless, and it’s up to you what you want to freeze-dry.
Fill up a request form on their website and put the location where you want them to pick up your food. Let them know what kind of food you want them to process.
You have the flexibility to prepare the food the way you like it. Cook it according to your secret recipe, and cut them to your desired shape and size.
You only need to remember to keep the thickness under one inch thick. Thicker cuts will have additional processing costs, depending on the type and nature of the food.
Once you got everything done, pack them in a gallon or quart-sized Zip-Lock bag. Then store them in the fridge or freezer until it’s time for pick up.
Family Freeze Dry will go to your pickup location as scheduled.
Once Family Freeze Dry is done processing your food, you only have to wait for them to arrive at your doorstep.
Wait time is usually 1-2 weeks after pick up. You’ll get an email notification saying that the food is on its way back to you.
It’s simple, easy, and convenient. Once your food is freeze-dried, you don’t have to worry about cold storage.
Family Freeze Dry charges $20.00 per gallon zip-lock bag, and $12.00 for each quart-sized zip-lock bag.
Their website has no reviews about how they handled food for customers. The company’s relatively new, about 2 years old, so they have a lot to prove over other companies. Especially when it comes to handling food that you and your family would eat.
The cost can be high if you have a lot of food. But think of it this way. Instead of throwing money away because of spoiled food, you’re investing it. You eat food you and your family will love when an emergency strikes. Or when no one has the time to cook food.
It’s a novel idea, and very few people are willing to do this kind of thing for other families. But, if you look at it, nothing gives you more comfort on a challenging situation than eating food you’re familiar with and accustomed to. There’s risk of food fatigue if your options are limited, yes. But once you get your supply going with the help of Family Freeze Dry, you can easily face this challenge.
However, you have also to consider the safety and handling. Before you trust them with your food, be aware that they’re processing other food besides yours. If your family is experiencing food sensitivity, you should let them know and ask for details on how they will process your food.
