And anyone can order?  How much is shipping?

Yes anyone can order and the cost of shipping is in the price so nothing extra is charged for shipping.

I've ordered from the LDS website several times.

Always fast shipping and well packed. The boxes aren't exactly what you'd call clandestinely packaged, if that matters any to you.

Some of the warehouses may charge a sales tax, but the overall price, for what you get, is very reasonable.

I appreciate having this resource option available.

Regards,

Prag

I don't find one in the listing at providentliving.org . There is one in the Atlanta, GA area, none that I found in Mississippi.

It seems like I read someone posting about a cannery in AL on another forum...I'll look into it and post back.

I'm not asking you to violate any form of OPSEC, but in what general region of AL are you in?

I ask because I believe there is one in Atlanta, one in Slidell, LA and I know we have a few here in East TN.

Depending on your location and finances, it may be worth the drive for you to swing a bulk purchase.

I don't know where in Alabama you are, but there is a Cannery in the Spring Hill, TN area - about 50 miles north of the Alabama/Tennessee line on I-65. I can get you more information if you want.

We are not members of the LDS church, but this thread reminded me that nine years ago or so, my husband and I went to the canning facility in Worcester, MA. We had a great experience. Everyone there was super helpful and friendly and their prices can't be beat.

So, using the contact info in this thread, I called and asked if they were still open to non-members. They are, and invited me to come and make a purchase. You need an appointment if you want to can yourself, or they have many pre-canned cases for sale. I came home with just over $300 in long-term storage food that would have cost me almost 3 times that from my usual source. If you are anywhere in the area (I drove multiple hours and it was well worth it), I highly recommend a visit to them. The facility is only open on Thursdays and Saturdays.

I talked to someone at the Worcester Cannery about a year ago and they told me you had to be a church member then. If anyone is told different please let us know.


I did an AAR on the Worcester Cannery last year in "Region 1"  http://thesurvivalpodcast.com/forum/index.php?topic=8702.0

The Knoxville, TN cannery is a nice place to go.  They allow non-LDS members on Wednesdays around 11 am and the third Thursday of the month around 6:30 pm by appointment.  Its a good idea to call ahead and talk to Richard or John.  Supper friendly and helpful. 
Pick their brains for some additional information about food storage, they are very knowledgeable about it. 

I have purchased from the LDS cannery several times and often help others can their food storage there.  I have never had them "preach" to me.  There are several preparedness people in the Knoxville area that frequent the cannery (Good place to network with others).    When you do go, take exact cash, they do not take credit cards, frown on checks and do not have much cash for making change. 

You will need to fill out an order form (See one of the links in the other posts).  I have at least a couple of cases of everything they sell.  I even use the bulk items in my daily diet (Store what you eat, eat what you store). 

Basic experience of the cannery:  First trip there - You get a tour the building.  Get the bulk items you need to can.  Wash hands, put on apron, hair net and gloves.  Start canning (Its not hard at all and actually kinda fun, very much so when you save more than half on a #10 can compared to Emergency Essentials). 

Hope this is helpful to anyone thinking about visiting the Knoxville LDS cannery.

Do you know why LDS is so into food preservation? I didn't until a couple of summers ago when we accidentally drove into the town of Nauvoo Illinois http://www.historicnauvoo.net/ We've all heard about the "Trail of Tears", the massacre at Wounded Knee, but I never knew about the bloodshed at Nauvoo, have you? http://timesandseasons.org/index.php/2009/09/what-happened-in-navuoo-part-1/

This is white-on-white massacre, akin to what was portrayed in "Defiance". Can it happen again? LDS prepares. I'm sure they are not the only ones that could be victims. No wonder they are the experts on this subject.

You might ask if they would allow non-members in for a small donation. Sometimes the cannery is supported by donations from a local church, and that's why they don't normally allow non-members in. I'm hoping the one in Colorado Springs lets non-members in, because driving to Aurora would be over 4 hours for me (springs being already 3hrs) ugh.

If possible could you post your findings about access to the Colorado Springs location?

Also a small cross post in area 7 for local news would be very useful.


Thanks

Nauvoo is only part of the troubles they had.  The early members of the church were kicked out of Missouri in the dead of winter under the "extermination order" - any Mormons in Missouri could be killed (I don't think that expulsion was purely religious - there was a lot of anti-slavery northerners in that bunch, and we are talking 1830s, so it was pretty bloody in MO over that issue.)  They went to Nauvoo, and were driven out a few years later.
They went to Utah - the most god-forsaken land anyone could imagine, and part of Mexico at the time.  the only water being a SALT-water lake, and its few fresh water stream tributaries.  just a few years after arriving and starting over AGAIN, President Buchanan sent an army to put down a non-existent rebellion.  The saints were prepared to burn their own houses this time before letting anyone live in the fruits of their labors again.

But the main reason we prepare and are into preparedness is not our history.  It is our future.  We believe that God knows the End from the Beginning, and that He knows what is coming.  We also believe, as is written in Amos 3:7 "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, abut he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets."  We believe that God has called prophets for our time, and the prophet hears the Word of the Lord and tells us.  And the Lord has told us to have food storage, to plant gardens, to be out of debt BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHAT IS COMING.  That is why we prepare.  The Lord wants what is best for His children - all of his children, which is why the church canneries are open to everyone. (btw, food storage has been a commandment for at least 70 years.)

I wanted to add that the water bottles with filters that they have on the LDS website are *excellent.* I am really impressed by them, and they are significantly cheaper than any others I've found of that brand online.

Excellent post Morning Sunshine. Thank you.

A good friend of mine at work is LDS. We encourage each other in the area of prepping. He's a great guy and good family man.

My personal belief is that God does want the best for us, provides the knowledge, and it's our responsibility to do the work.

I appreciate the shared knowledge and experiences I find here. I greatly appreciate the canneries being open to all of us.

I don't know where tomorrow will lead us, but with eyes open, it doesn't look like an easy road.
But that's OK, we'll do the best we can. My life and that of my family is vastly improved from our efforts already.

Just my $.02 worth.  :)

Some of the LDS locations around the country are combination Bishop's Warehouses and bulk storage/cannery ....... the Chicago area (Naperville) is set up in this fashion .........

I believe some locations around the country are closed to the public because of some previous problems ........ LDS is doing people a big favor and some people act like they are shopping at Wally World ....... use some common sense and decorum and act like the guest you are ...........

I agree, Illini. I've been treated so well whenever I have visited a warehouse. I had heard that the Atlanta warehouse is no longer open to the public, but will give them a call and ask myself the next time I need to stock up. I've always been an optimist :)

Just find any Mormon (I'm sure one of your neighbors is LDS) and ask them to point you in the right direction.  If needed I'm sure they would escort you to the cannery if it's only for members.  Currently the one near my house wont let you bring your own stuff to can, however in the LDS community most of the stakes (large groups of LDS members) have a canning machine that the members can borrow.  I would suggest talking to a member to get more info.

I stopped by mine the other day to see if they had any milk already canned, cuz I do not have time or energy to go do all 24 cans I need.  so I stop by whenever I am in the area and grab a can or 3.  Anyway, the sister there was pretty tirked with me (as tirked as they get, anyway) that I would not make an appointment to can my own, and instead just stop by occasionally hoping that they have some.  I told her I would be happy to do so, if I did not have 4 homeschooled children and all-day morning sickness.  but for now that is not an option I have.  anyway, my point is that the one in Logan Utah definitely wants you to use the canning equipment....
