Lindon Farms is a brand branched off of “The Ready Project” with their main focus being on a monthly food storage auto shipment program. This company is a provider of freeze dried and dehydrated food products which are USDA approved and undergo regular third-party inspections and audits, ensuring meals are safe when they arrive to member’s homes.
- Purchase options
The sole aspect that sets this company apart is their deliverance of food storage on a monthly auto shipment program. Each month customers will receive a unique storage kits ranging from entrées to soups and desserts. For example, one month will include soups and vegetables, another will include an assortment of breakfast items, and the next will have an assortment of entrées and sides. There are a total of seven storage kits in this program and by enrolling, customers will receive free shipping. All meals meet the daily 2000 calorie requirement, with many of their products having a 25 year shelf life.
Not everyone wants to be tied to a monthly auto ship program, which is why they also offer products in kits, as well as individually on a one-time purchase option. Products include entrées, vegetables, fruits and freeze dried storage kits. They sell at little as a seven day food storage option and up to a three year supply for one person. Prices are fair with a 360 serving option coming in around $432, whereas some competitors with the same serving size being priced close to $750.
Another aspect to consider if trying to save some hard earned money is by joining the email newsletter list. By doing so, shoppers will receive an automatic 25% discount on their first order.
- Product limitations
- Customer service
- Educational resources
This company offers such an assortment and variety of fruits, however, we would like to see more of a vegetable and bean product line incorporated into their product list, as well as more meat options. It seems that back in 2013 they offered these options which were USDA approved, but have since removed them from their product list.
As far as customer inquiries via Facebook, company representatives are not ones to jump on customer service and answer questions, which can probably leave consumers in the dark regarding their products. We attempted to reach them several times and were consistently directed to voicemail, which is fairly unimpressive.
Educational resources are pretty scarce. They offer a blog, however the latest (and only) post was dated back to Nov. 2013. They also use social media as a source of emergency and food storage education, but like their blog, it is out of date with the last post being on January, 1st wishing followers a Happy New Year.
The Bottom Line
Being that this company brand is focused on auto shipment, it may not be for everyone. However, those seeking the convenience of these kinds of programs may be delighted to have an array of high quality options shipped to their door without the hassle of having to reorder. An important aspect to keep in mind is they do not offer any meat products, and have a broader selection of fruit over any other items. If these attributes are appealing, this could be a great company to consider for food storage needs.
