We love the outdoors, just like you.

As a family that’s spent decades exploring the outdoors and dehydrating our own meals, we’re proud that each item leaving our facility is something we enjoy ourselves.

“Thank you Sarah for the advice on how to best cook the biscuits in the skillet biscuit and sausage gravy pack. We packed along farm fresh eggs and it was HANDS DOWN the best meal we’ve ever had on the trail.

We love what your family has created and shared with us all and we wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the trail feel a little more like home! ”
- Nikki & Brad
“EVERYONE loved the meals. The guys that didn’t bring them all tasted and swore off other brands forever :) Thanks for being awesome!”
- Patrick
“Backpacking keto is tough! But Packit Gourmet has some varieties that I can still take along. Like these scrumptious Dinner Deluxe Eggs! Brought some Carb Chopper tortillas and some cheese to top it off. ”

“Just wanted to thank you for being AWESOME! Had a week long loop scheduled for the Cascades Mount Baker Wilderness area east of Seattle. Just wrapped up this EPIC backpacking adventure with seven great friends. Keep doing what you guys are doing. Way better grub than anything else out there.”
- Hunter
“I am super-pleased (after nearly 4 decades of hiking) to have come across a company that produces a uniformly delicious and varied product! Love your food and it made my long loop in the Sierras much better dining nearly every night.”
- Terry
“My father and I just finished our 25 day backpacking trip along the JMT this past Sunday, and we couldn't have done it without your amazing food! Two years ago, we tried the trail and were both so sick of the various bars and *other brands* dinners, that we ended up losing motivation to eat and felt so low energy that we ended up hiking out at Bishop. This year, we stocked up on better food options and tried again. I had your pizza margherita the first night and it was to die for! My father and I each looked forward to the days when we had a pack it gourmet meal included. His favorite was the austintacious tortilla soup of course. We told anyone who would listen that your meals were worth every oz. of weight we carried on the trail.”
- Jenika
“Great lunch on the little river the other day. Thanks for making great quality products.”
- Rusty

“Getting ready for another backpacking adventure and I thought it was a great opportunity to give a shoutout to one of my favorite companies Packit Gourmet! These are hands down the BEST dehydrated meals you will ever find. Fred and I have been ordering from this family owned business for the last couple of years and we look forward to their meals at the end of long hiking days. Their ingredients are clean and natural and work well for someone like me who has a lot of dietary restrictions. Not only are they the loveliest people to do business with, they completely understand exactly what you want and need on a cold night out in the woods. I’m so glad we had the good fortune of discovering Packit Gourmet!”
- Christine

I have two beginner backpackers with me who have been enjoying every last meal they’ve tried. Packit Gourmet has turned there skepticism of trail food into belief and desire! Thanks for all you do! ”
