    Can we, as non-LDS folks, order at those prices? Or are us non-believers excluded?

      That's an excellent question. I'm hoping they like the Long Green as much as a used car dealer. I would also be interested in buying one of those can sealers. then I could put anything I wanted in one when the would arise.

      OK....... never mind. I saw the price om the Sealer. :-(

        Thank you for this info. It will certainly come in handy. It also points to a 30 year storage on dry foods. I've been trying to folks for a long time that the shelf life of many items is longer than the sellers want you to know about.

          I found where to buy the Can Sealer....... If a local group got together it could be less expensive that way.

          And this one is the same as the one at LDS, also much less expensive.

            on another forum to which I belong, one of the guys made an appointment at his local LDS cannery. He said he brought in his order form, and you work a shift doing the actual canning for all the orders submitted that day, and you pay for your order. He is not Mormon.

            I tried to look into it, but everytime I try to call the cannery closest to me, the phone is busy.

              I just want 5 tins of the beans. The price is very good. The canner would be great for storing ammo though.

                No you can not order those items in the link at the prices. They are the prices you will pay if you go into the cannery itself.

                I am a non member but found several members on another forum, as long as your with a member you can use the cannery facility. When I was there you could only purchase a total of 12 cases of canned items.

                It was actually kinda fun. We went in and washed up and put on aprons and hair nets, there was a short prayer and then the warehouse people went and pulled the items that we the customers wanted to can. You can what your group wants, clean up, pay and then leave.

                No to long ago as payment for using the facility you would can goods that the facility was low on. You would give the workers your list of items you wanted, they would go and pull if for you. While they are doing that you would can items that were running low. If they were getting low on canned sugar you would can 500 cans of sugar for their inventory. That was considered payment for using that facility. I guess .gov came in and said that they were no longer able to do that, so you have to can your own items.

                So facilities do not have the mylar bagged items the Salt Lake facility I went to did not. Items will vary from each facility.

                I have been only once but will definately go back again next time I am able to. Great prices on items and very friendly people.

                I came away with a very different opinion on the mormons. Yes they have different beliefs then I do but they are of the same mind set as we are and are willing to assist non members with putting up basic items.

                Sorry I got kinda long winded there.
