Is there a good source to buy pemmican?

About the only thing I've been able to find is US Wellness but they have a crazy minimum order requirement and from various reviews I've read a lot of people were pretty unhappy with it (tastes like a "candle" and the meat was supposedly not 100% dried).

Making my own sounds interesting but I'm not set up to do that and would rather get a feel for how much I really like the stuff before embarking on that adventure.

Any recommendations would be appreciated!

Hi. I'll be backpacking for a week so that's good to hear. I will probably order from them and do some shelf life testing. Temps will be from 80-40 degrees a day.

Not sure how long you intend to store it unrefrigerated, but I've kept bars of U.S. Wellness pemmican in a briefcase for on-the-go snacking close to a week, and it's been fine.

Lucky Pup! Thanks for the info, guess I'll try calling them directly and see if I can order less than 40lbs (or whatever their crazy minimum is). :)

I had the same concerns before jumping into making my own pemmican so I ordered from US Wellness just to give it a try. Although homemade is light years better the stuff from them was at least edible and it let me know that I could handle the whole taste concept. After I made my own I just used theirs for the primal pup!

Hi,

Does anyone know another source for Pemmican as this company says it will only last a few days unrefrigerated. They don't have the equipment to make it the ideal way.

Thanks, Shane
