What 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 us.

We do not freeze dry animals and animal parts for taxidermy.

Our dryers hold up to 120 pounds (50 kgs) each and we can process approximately 500 pounds per week (60 gallons liquid).
