You can save money with our quality canned meats... even though they cost a little more than refrigerated meats. Sound backward? And that's not all... we're also going to tell you that these meats easily do things that regular fresh meat can't. Sound crazy? Well, hear us out...
"Pssst... Hey buddy, wanna buy a can of electricity?" Consider an analogy... The national average cost of electricity is less than ten cents per kilowatt hour. With that ten cents worth of power you can light a 40 watt bulb for 25 hours. Now imagine that a salesman at your door offered to sell you some canned electricity, the same amount, "for the bargain price of $3.00." Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? But people actually do buy quite a bit of canned electricity, which is just another name for batteries. We wouldn't suggest replacing all the power you get from the wall socket with battery power. But for many uses, "canned electricity" is so useful and convenient you'd probably have a hard time getting along without it. Think about those cans of electricity in your flashlight, portable radio, MP3 player, car, camera, cell phone... the list goes on and on. Considering what it can do, in fact, canned electricity actually is a real bargain. And our canned meats offer the very same value, with one big exception: The cost difference between our canned meats and the "uncanned" kind is miniscule compared to the premium we gladly pay for the convenience of canned electricity!
"Where's the Beef?" Fresh meat is terrific! You pick some up when you're grocery shopping, put it in your fridge, maybe your freezer, and use it in delicious stir fries, roll-ups, casseroles... burgers on the grill. But then something happens... it's gone! There's more at the store, but the store is there and you are here. Or you need it now, and going to get it would mean having it "later." This conundrum generally has three components: Availability, Transportation Cost, & Time.
Availability: Your menu plans call for some meat, and you're fresh out, if you'll pardon the pun. Of course it's possible that you never forget to buy enough, but then you probably never lose your keys or misplace your glasses, either. (If this is true, we don't want to hear about it. Really.) For the rest of us, it's a problem on occasion. And when it happens, going away to pick up some meat hasn't been factored into our plans. In fact it may just not be possible, practically speaking. At such times, having a variety of excellent canned meats to select from means you don't have to change plans or do without... you just reach for a can of some of the finest meat you'll ever eat, without skipping a beat. Sail-boaters are among our most avid canned meat customers.
Transportation Cost: Forgive us for bringing up something as painful as the price of gasoline. But we don't mind telling you that ordering our canned chicken, beef, turkey, pork or fish for delivery to your door won't involve buying any gas at all. There's a close connection these days between your bank balance and the needle on your gas gauge. Leave the mileage off your car—FedEx was coming through your neighborhood anyway!
Time: Time is money, they say. If you know what your time is worth in "dollar terms" you can easily figure out how much an extra trip to the store dings your budget. But time is more than money too, isn't it? Time is also the opportunity to do what you want to do for a while... and for most of us, some extra city driving isn't high on our wish list. And there's more: Our meats save you preparation time! There's no trimming or cutting to do, and since they're fully precooked, you just heat and serve!
Preparedness & Shelf Life: We're being advised from many quarters, today, to have some food on hand for one kind of emergency development or another. A variety of circumstances can create a short-term or even long-term need to have food on hand. Food that doesn't require refrigeration, in the event that power goes out for a while. If you don't want to live on beans, macaroni or tofu indefinitely, our canned chicken, canned turkey, canned beef & canned pork will put some great meat on your plate. Our canned meats are guaranteed to remain good-as-new for five years. But customers have told us they've enjoyed them after far more than five years of storage. In fact one customer stopped by the cannery with a can sealed 18 years before. Upon opening, the taste and texture were excellent... after 18 years! The only thing likely to shorten lifespan is attack by outside moisture rusting through the can, and preventing that is as simple as storing the cans in a dry, clean area.
By the case... or... Buy the sampler: We offer two ways to purchase our quality canned meats. If you know what you want (maybe you're already back for more), a case is twelve cans. Net weight of each can is 13 ounces (9 oz. for canned bacon, and 28 oz. for sausage.) We used to sell larger cans but we MUCH prefer the current sizing because you don't have to open so much at one time.
If you want to try before you order by the case, we offer a sample pack below.

A bargain for now: The USDA says to expect sharply higher food costs, particularly for meat. It isn't hard to see why, in light of the fact that corn is the main animal feed stock, and 41% of the U.S. corn crop will be used to produce ethanol this year. Which suggests there's no time like the present to purchase meat that keeps.
And foremost... Quality: We're very proud of the truly exceptional quality of these meats. Our beef is all from the chuck tender cut. Pork is from the pork cushion cut. Chicken is half white meat and half dark. Turkey is entirely from the breast and thigh. Compare to other canned meats and you'll find that they use inferior cuts compared to what goes into our product. Another significant difference in all of our canned meats is that they're salted only lightly, not excessively as so many canned goods are. Past buyers have appreciated our superior quality... You will too!
