“Why preserve food when I can buy it at the store?”

When you preserve your own food you know what’s in it, which is the food item itself. There are no preservatives (unless you add them but why would you?), less sugar, sodium, and chemicals if you use organic produce. 


There are many studies that show how cooking your own meals is so much better for your health and your wallet. Preserving your own food is the same. There are some initial start-up costs but the jars and equipment can be used for years/decades to come. Canning/home food preservation can help save your health and is easier on your wallet.


Fortunately, canning/food preservation is simple and easy to do. 

Canning/preserving food is not too different from learning to cook. Once you learn how to use the equipment (like the oven or stove in your own kitchen) you can use these same skills with different recipes. The process doesn’t change too much from recipe to recipe.



Some folks work better with one-on-one instruction, especially learning to use the canning equipment.

 Does your partner hunt, fish, or love to garden?  Not sure what to do with it all?  I’ll teach you both how to preserve what you catch or grow together so nothing goes to waste! 

Canning and food preservation have often been done by groups of people. Great way to gather, catch up and share the work!

Want a fun way to engage your employees? Get them out of the office for some hands-on training? Home food preservation is a great way to bring folks together.


"Stacey is a talented teacher and master of home preservation!  I was new to canning but after taking a group class with her, I felt prepared and inspired to start making my own jam.  She is passionate about her work and passing along her knowledge.  In my private lesson, I learned even more. She knows the local farms and makes great recommendations based on seasonality of produce.  From homemade sauerkraut to canned fresh tuna, Stacey is an amazing resource!"
