We Don’t Normally Freeze Dry
There are some materials that we do not normally freeze dry. These
include fruits, vegetables, meals for home food storage, and
flowers/floral arrangements. Freeze drying these items is usually
cost prohibitive and can be obtained other ways or from other
suppliers. If you absolutely must have these done, please contact
We do not freeze dry animals and animal parts for taxidermy.
