Walton Foods

Walton Foods, probably the largest manufacturer of bulk-packaged foods designed for long-term storage, has been operating in Idaho as Walton Feed for over 50 years and has maintained an "A+" rating with the Better Business Bureau since 1991. Now, Walton Feed sells its survival foods and supplies under the subsidiary Rainy Day Foods.

Primarily concerned with selling dehydrated foods for survival purposes, Walton's offers a comprehensive catalog containing products you can purchase in varying weights and sizes. The majority of foods are available in #10 and #2.5 cans, with the option to buy much larger sizes.

Water Purifying Accessories

The Aquamira water bottle and filter holds 22 ounces of water and can filter over 550 refills with one filter. Another type of water purifier is an emergency water filter made by Aquamira that can be submerged into a water source in order to filter the water through an expandable straw. This water filter is certified to remove nearly 99 percent of the parasites Giardia and cryptosporidium.

A five-gallon water storage drum is also available that is constructed of high-density polyethylene approved by the FDA and easily stackable to conserve space.

Freeze-dried Mountain House Food Paks

Preppers will also find a wide selection of Mountain House Food Paks for sale at Walton Foods containing single servings of various freeze-dried foods such as blueberry cheesecake, spaghetti with meat sauce and chicken and rice. Freeze drying involves freezing a food, then putting it into a vacuum so that the food can vaporize without experiencing the liquid stage (sublimation). When you want to eat something that has been freeze-dried, simply pour hot water over it or cook it in hot water for several minutes.

Garden Seeds

If you want to start your own garden, Walton's has garden seeds available in single #10 cans or a case of #10 cans. Included in this seed collection are Blue Lake Bush Beans, Sweet peppers, Champion radishes, Lincoln peas and Rutgers tomatoes. To begin growing herbs, purchase the Herb Seed Pak that comes in #10 cans and provides seeds for chives, fennel, parsley, sage, oregano, and lemon herb plants.

Emergency Supplies

Just as important as stocking enough food intended for long-term storage is having plenty of emergency supplies to assist you and your family through a lengthy disaster. At Walton's Foods, you will find ready-to-eat military style meals (MREs), multivitamins, pocket-sized insulated sleeping bags, sanitation/influenza kits, and survival candles that burn for up to 36 hours.

The company also makes emergency kits for one or two people that provide essential survival items such as mini camp stove, flashlight/batteries, MRE meals, water purifying tablets, and a first aid kit.
