“On polar expeditions, good nutrition and ample calories is the key to

success.  Harvest Foodworks creates a huge variety of great, high calorie

foods.  After a long day of dog sledding, kite skiing or skiing, there is

nothing better than a hot bowl of Harvest Foodworks.”

“I have used Harvest Foodworks products in my archaeological field camps in the Arctic for many years. The range and variety of meals have been enjoyed by crews of up to twelve people, and for field seasons that can be up to six or seven weeks in length. After a long day of digging in the cold, a filling meal that can be prepared and served up quickly is greatly appreciated.  Over the years the favourites have been apple cinnamon pancakes, bannock, chilli, stroganoff, spaghettini, green peas, chocolate almond fudge cake and blueberry cobbler. Harvest Foodworks freeze dried meat is added to the dinners, and a Coleman oven is used to cook the bannock and desserts. Most of our camps have been fly-in, so using the freeze dried products helps to lower transportation costs. PatSutherlandHarvest Foodworks’ products are the mainstay of our diet, supplemented by cheese, salami, dried meat,canned fish, and grain products.  I recommend Harvest Food Works not only for small camps and expeditions, but also for larger, longer term camps.

“When we signed up to run a 7 day stage race in Madagascar, we knew the food we took with us would be extremely important.  Being vegan athletes makes it quite difficult to find freeze dried or dehydrated meals suitable for such an expedition.  Rigourous activity demands high calories and quality ingredients, but having to carry all your food for the week means you have to consider the weight of all your foods as well.  After coming across the Harvest Foodworks products, we knew we had to try them out.  After some test trials during training, we narrowed down our favourites and also determined which meals would cook almost perfectly simply by adding boiling water (as that was all we would get out on the race course).
The flavours were rich and tasty, we felt full after each meal, and dispite running over a marathon each day, we never experienced any GI issues.  These highlights are rare and absolutely invaluable to an ultra athlete running a multiday event!  Harvest Foodworks has a wide variety of entrees, sides and desserts, which we will most definitely be packing for our future stage races or expeditions and we so highly recommend you to give them a try for yourselves.”

Canoe Arctic“I have been using Harvest Foodworks products on my canoe trips in the Canadian Arctic since their company was founded in 1995 . I am a big fan of their dinners, in particular, and they are head and shoulders above anything else on the North American camping foods market. Harvest Foodworks dinners are dehydrated so they weigh a little more than the freeze-dried fare offered by other companies, but they are superior in every other way to those freeze-dried products, including price. And when Harvest says one of their dinners serves two people, it does. Typically, you have to double the suggested servings from those other companies. Harvest Foodworks dinners are vegetarian which allows me to add a variety of freeze-dried meats, or frozen and canned seafoods to these dishes. I receive many compliments from my clients on these dinners.”

We are excited about the quality of the food, the variety, the taste, as well as many other advantages that we discovered.  The flexibility offered by the meals charmed us. Meals are all vegetarian based and it is possible to add meat according to our needs. This gives us a good dose of vegetable in addition to animal proteins (according to individual preferences and calorie needs). Unlike other competitors which you only add hot water in an envelope, with Harvest Foodworks you cook your meals according to your tastes. It gives a more interesting texture to the meal, while remaining effective in the preparation.

The wide variety of products offers a very interesting menu. The meals are very good and well-seasoned. There is everything: breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts and accompaniments. You can make several combinations and add different ingredients. There is even some non-cooking products such as delicious coconut biscuits. Another point to mention is the simplicity. Everything comes in an individual bag, sealed and graduated (allowing its use as a measuring cup). The instructions are well-detailed also.

We are really happy that Harvest Foodworks is a partner in our next adventure. The food is a significant factor in an expedition. The folks at Harvest have understood that and they offer very good customer service.”
