Mountain House Foods a Huge Hit with Boy Scouts and Parents!

Rehydrating and eating
right from the pouch
This year, Safecastle donated a substantial amount of Mountain House freeze dried food to our local Boy Scout troops.

This weekend we heard back from a leader who was at a Camporee where they served six different varieties to the boys and to the many parents who were also in attendance.

Some of them knew what they had there, but apparently most were first-time MH consumers and they were absolutely "astounded" at how tasty the foods were. Not a small feat when you are talking about kids especially.

For the record, Beef Stroganoff was hands-down the most popular followed closely by Chili Mac, Spaghetti w meat sauce, Rice & Chicken and Raspberry Crumble.

Pasta Primavera was the only variety left after the weekend ... some of the kids were turned off by the veggies in that entrée.

We're proud to be long-time supporters of Boy Scouts of America. Be Prepared!

HUGE Mountain House Sale Ends Sept. 30 ... Yes, we still have it in stock--prompt free shipping!



Have you been snoozing? If so, you can at least be comforted to know that plenty of others have been asleep as well.

However, a record number of storage-food buyers HAVE been inundating sellers such as Safecastle over the last two months. So much so that major storage food producers are going out of stock and have been unable to even come close to replenishing the shelves of their dealers.

Mountain House is the gold standard of emergency storage food--50 years in business, their freeze dried foods continually judged the best tasting, and relied upon by US government and military agencies for decades as well as by consumers! Did I mention that their cans of food last for 30 years when stored in reasonable conditions?

Well--no surprise then that Mountain House has been the number one target for buyers looking to shore up their own preparedness situation in the last two months.

Why now? The list is long and the threats are many ... suffice it to say, it's time!

MH Factory Has No Food Left

Bottom line--the Mountain House factory is 95%-out of stock. This has only happened once before during a time of major crisis.

The good news--at Safecastle we saw it coming and bought as much inventory as we could. So we still have a good amount of the best storage food in the world, in stock, ready for prompt shipping.

And the better news--it is still on sale at up to 38% off! (It also ships free!)

This is your wake-up call. Time to get it done.

New X-Treme Folding Electric Bikes: Great for preppers

Offering an X-Treme Gas Scooter too!

Does the idea of having to pedal miles and miles make you gasp? (Not everyone is young and fit.)
 
Electric bikes are a great solution. FOLDING electric bikes are a great prepping solution for many folks because they are easy to transport and store, they are quiet, they are powerful (20 mph for up to 25 miles per charge), and you can pedal them as well, when needed.

"Panic" Buying Expanding Throughout Preparedness Markets

We've been keeping you advised of this burgeoning situation for almost two months now. As a result many of you have stayed ahead of the curve.

Today, we're deep into a spreading panic among those prepping for imminent crises. The most popular brands and varieties of storage foods are out of stock and backordered most anywhere you look. Note that this situation is also now spreading to crucial survival-related products such as Berkey water filters.

The Good News

We know what we're doing at Safecastle, having been around this block many times before. We recognized the signs very early on this year and started a bit of focused buying ourselves to make sure we could help you through this situation. So while many other sellers are selling you long-backordered product, we've still got key product inventories in our warehouses. Maybe not a lot of each variety, but enough to get you squared away of you do not delay any longer.

For instance, we do still have about two-thirds of the Mountain House freeze dried catalog in stock for prompt shipping.

Red Feather canned butter and Bega canned cheese are about to disappear from U.S. markets. The North American distributor sold us their last pallets of those two very popular items and they don't expect to get resupplied from overseas for several months. (Apparently, this buying surge is taking place around the world.) Our butter inventory was depleted earlier today but we have that last shipment coming in and if you get your order in, you'll be in the queue for those dwindling can-cases. (And yes--they are still on sale at unbeatable pricing!) We expect that shipment in within two weeks. We do still have the cheese available for prompt shipping.

Yoders canned bacon--we still have some in stock for prompt shipping. It is out of stock most other places for at least the next few weeks.

Berkey water filters ... the N. American distributor is running out of stock of several Berkey models. We have inventory of several models ... if they are listed in our store, we have them available for fast shipping.

Many other storage food brands that we are selling are drop-shipped from their producer warehouses. The word on most of them is that they are shipping about three or more weeks out due to growing piles of orders that are coming in.

All food producers are dealing with amped-up demand, but they are also struggling to purchase raw ingredients for their products. Eggs remain the biggest challenge, with most factories unable to secure enough for production runs, and that is expected to remain the case for several more months.

Bottom Line

No surprise if you have been paying attention, but here is our take ... just as with the overall economy and geopolitical situation out there, we're on the edge in the crisis preparedness marketplace.

But where much of the economy is dragging, those who are stepping up their preparedness efforts are stressing our suppliers to the breaking point at the opposite end of spectrum. Many will say, that's not a bad thing.

The danger is that we are one big-picture push away from having the whole thing go tumbling down the slope. We've seen it before--sellers are unable to get inventory, producers are unable to get enough material and food for production runs. We're at max capacity right now ... if any number of new more preparedness buyers flood into the market, that will be it.

Upfront about the Situation

We prefer to make sure our own longtime customers are well situated for what is happening. We're upfront with you about what we are seeing so that you have as many facts available for your own consideration as to what you may want to do as a result.

Stay safe.

Canned Butter and Cheese Out of Stock for Months at N. American Distributor (We still have some on sale!)

On Friday, Sept. 18, we were advised by the distributor for Red Feather Butter and Bega Cheese that they are completely out of stock now due to the ongoing panic buying of storage food. It will several months before they will be able to restock.
 
The good news is that we were on top of the situation, saw it coming, and bought as much inventory as was available. What we have will go fast.
 
You have been warned.

Good: Freeze Dried Hamburger Patties Now Available! Bad: Canned Butter and Cheese Almost Gone in North America

Freeze dried hamburger patties, 2015 production--25 year shelf life
See our latest email to get all the updates on the storage-food-buying panic that is depleting inventories from all sellers, distributors, and factories.

Bad news first--Right after sending out the email linked above, we got word that the North American distributor for Bega canned cheese and Red Feather butter is out of stock and won't be able to get more for months due to the worldwide buying surge of storable foods. We still have some in inventory and we are keeping our lowest-anywhere prices right where they are. Act fast--our inventory will be depleted soon.

Good news--Freeze Dried Hamburger Patties are now available! They are normally hard to get and in the midst of the current deluge of storage food buying, it is quite a blessing.

We've been waiting on these, and I know a lot of you have been as well. Don't know how long they'll last, as they are very popular and not too easy to locate--especially recent production like these (July 2015). We're selling them by the case (six #10 cans) or by the can.
While we're at it, we also have some excellent 2015 Chicken Patties. 

These meat patties are good for decades on the shelf. Just imagine how valuable these could be down the road!

BIG LONG-TERM STORAGE FOOD SALE ENDS TONIGHT, 9/12: Yoders and Future Essentials

 
Mountain House and Other Storage Food Brands Dwindling!
ALL Storage Food Producers Struggling with Demand Now
Mountain House leads the way in the storage food marketplace. They continue to be swamped with new orders and growing product backlogs. Now we have officially heard from all our other many food suppliers and they too are experiencing the very same issues--some becoming very serious.

The dominoes continue to fall.

Most concerning is these companies' inability to procure food in sufficient quantities to face up to the demand out there. It's becoming a major issue and one that is also beginning to impact grocery brands as well.

This whole situation is not going to improve anytime soon, and we believe it's going to continue to get much worse. Still the positive news--we continue to have stock of many MH food varieties and we can still ship other brands to you. Don't delay any further.
