Summer Sun Oven Special

package2012Sorry, Everyone, for missing this Special and failing to let you all know, but better late than never.  Here we are:

Pay only $33.35 for each Dehydrating and Preparedness Accessory Package when ordered with a SUN OVEN through September 22, 2016*

Dehydrating and Preparedness Accessory Package Includes:

* Multi-Level Dehydrating & Baking Rack Set (set of 3 racks w/1 roll parchment paper)

* Two Easy Stack Pots w/interchangeable enamel and glass lids

* Multi-Fuel Water Pasteurizing Indicator (WAPI)

* Two Loaf Pans

* Computer CD featuring 600 recipes, videos and much more

*This package price is only available with the purchase of an All American SUN OVEN.

Offer valid through September 22, 2016

A Sun Oven is $299, the lowest price they allow, and the package parts, if purchased separately, cost about $75.  The stacking cook pots are the best for all-around cooking, roasting, baking, and stewing.  The WAPI is a potential life-saver.  I use my bread pans regularly too.  And I want to use my dehydrating and baking rack set more often.  The total cost of $33.35 is less than the cook pots and WAPI – almost essential items – so the other items are essentially free.  A very nice package.

The total plus NM tax is $358.94.  Ordering from other states, without added tax, is $332.35.

To order, call me at 575-534-0123, or email  You can either get me a check or cash, or I’ll send you a PayPal invoice, which you can pay with either PayPal or a credit or debit card.

(One day soon, I hope to have a new site with payment option imbedded.  Meantime, we get to be old-fashioned and actually talk on the phone if we want, or email.  Thanks for your patience!)

Fermenting your chicken feed


Fermentation is nothing new to most of us. We’ve either used it with our surpluses for natural food preservation, or we’ve taken advantage of the probiotics, those beneficial bacteria, that fermenting something creates.

“As health-promoting element of our diet, its importance is not up for debate; as a part of industrialized lifestyle, its absence has now been recognized as a serious flaw in the system. Luckily, for those just learning this, we can ferment at home right away.”
