Augason Farms is one of the longest standing emergency preparedness companies with almost 50 years of experience in the industry.
The company’s first product was Morning Moo’s Milk, instant milk sold by founder Phil Augason in 1972. Since then, Augason Farms has expanded its inventory to include an array of food storage options including emergency and outdoor food kits which have been sourced and produced by the company.
Augason Farms has received food safety certifications from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), which is public recognition of the fulfillment of its mission statement: "Produce nutritious, long lasting, high quality emergency foods that people want to eat."
Popular products include black bean burger mix, freeze dried beef, honey powder, beans, vegetables such as dehydrated celery, and freeze dried fruits.
Augason Farms sources and produces its freeze-dried meals and dehydrated food with calorie and protein needs in mind, in some cases exceeding the USDA recommendation of 2,000 calories per day. The company claims that its product bags keep food good-tasting and nutritious for up to 30 years. Keep in mind that not all products offered have such a lengthy shelf life, such as its dried egg powder, which stays good up to 10 years.
This company is equipped to provide massive amounts of food to individuals as well as to large families. It carries 1-year food supply products in bulk as well as 1-year evacuation kits packaged in plastic buckets with handles. Kits can also be purchased with foods apportioned for these timelines:
Augason Farms also sells its products in smaller, pantry-sized quantities that come in handy for everyday cooking in addition to unexpected hardship. All #10 cans include recipes on the can label and more recipes can be accessed from the product page online. The fewer servings sold in pantry cans also allow customers to try out different products to see what they like before making a bulk purchase.
