Our journey began after both of our wives jobs were jeopardized during the early stages of the pandemic this year. Michael and I were brainstorming about side businesses we could start using our various skill sets that would help our families become less reliant on employers for job security but more importantly a business that would provide more flexibility to spend time with family (Michael has a toddler and I have a two-month-old).
So why did we start a freeze-drying business? We noticed how the home freeze-drying industry was evolving into a more accessible food preservation option and that various sweets, candy, fruit, and veggies are gaining in popularity as alternatives for snacks on-the-go and other fun events. Freeze-drying allows us to be creative and produce food options that are both healthy and fun.
We select premium brands of products to freeze-dry so that you know you are eating and snacking on the best products. From Tillamook Ice Cream to seasonal fresh fruits at the local market, we choose to freeze-dry quality over quantity.
We want to be your resource for high-quality freeze-dried products when you are backpacking, camping, taking road trips with the kids, have a long flight, want something different for a birthday party or wedding reception spread, or simply need a healthy snack on-the-go.
Freeze Dried Depot is based in Boise, Idaho, and distributes fresh freeze-dried products all over the United States.
