People across the nation are building ever-growing stockpiles of bottled water, medical supplies, and common non-perishable food items. For most, survival food includes canned goods from supermarket shelves, powdered milk, rice, oats and dried beans. Staples such as flour, oil and salt also frequently make the cut. Peanut butter, with its high fat, calorie and protein content, could be considered a high-protein staple as well. Read More
A few problems exist with the standard emergency food storage. For one, canned fruits and vegetables are prone to freezing or spoiling in extreme temperatures. Conventional dry goods in their paper packaging can easily become a breeding ground for mold if they're exposed to moisture, leaving them useless to your family. At the same time, peanut allergies are all too common today, so this leaves hundreds of thousands of people unable to benefit from peanut butter's nutritional value.
More than 40 years ago, our founder, Phil Augason, saw a considerable gap in the emergency food market. Only a handful of items in this category were available to the public at the time. Moreover, the few existing options were flavorless and severely lacking in nutrition. He decided the time had come to make a difference. A venture beginning with a single soy-based milk product, Morning Moo’s Low Fat Milk Alternative, has evolved into a company serving our country's emergency food storage needs with more than 400 options spanning the entire food pyramid.
History is filled with catastrophes ranging from those that are widespread to highly localized events. Millions are convinced a global catastrophe lurks on the horizon whether it be civil unrest or an environmental event unrivaled in modern times. Even those who don't believe a cataclysm is imminent don't deny that natural disasters are on the rise. In many cases, seemingly small calamities are the ones most often catching people off guard. This alone has prompted many to begin preparing for the worst.
That, in a nutshell, is why Augason Farms was established. We provide emergency food for all types of adversity whether planet-wide or small-scale. Our research and development team seeks out proven methods for best preserving the natural taste and nutritional integrity of foods. We manufacture a wide variety of options designed to withstand the test of time, offering shelf lives of up to 25 years. Our goal is to make it possible for families to be prepared for of whatever the future may hold.
Only a few years ago, an average small American town you've probably never heard of was met with an unexpected turn of events. Out of the blue, their public water main ruptured. It doesn't sound all that significant, does it? Honestly, countless towns around the world have experienced much worse, but the story goes on from there.
Their water main break created a bit of a cascade effect. First of all, a couple of major roads along the water line were washed out, leaving behind gaps large enough to swallow a pickup truck. Those nearest to the scene of the incident were the first to lose running water. They rushed out to purchase provisions for their own families, which was a fairly logical move.
By the time residents on the outskirts of town realized what had taken place, store shelves were bare. Not a bottle or jug of water, a dozen eggs, a loaf of bread or a gallon of milk was left. Food, fresh, frozen, and canned, was in scarce supply save for a random item here and there. Bear in mind, all this took place in less than two hours, and the population of this particular town at the time barely topped 8,000.
Aside from the basic facts, this story barely made the local news stations let alone national headlines. Within 48 hours, water was restored to most of the community and, a day later, the entire situation had been resolved. No one was injured during this time, and though a number of families were left with empty pantries, no one truly starved. Still, it was a wake-up call for those affected.
This is a prime example of how quickly disaster can unfold. No matter how unimportant circumstances may seem on the surface, survival instincts kick in, and it's suddenly "every man for himself." The people in this town weren't prepared. Had the situation been worse, some may have gone hungry while others would've come through no worse for wear. Things like this happen on a regular basis, and those who've planned ahead typically come out on top.
Circumstances can spiral out of control in the blink of an eye, leaving hundreds, or even millions, to suffer in the aftermath.
