WOW...how I tried to find these people

I've tried everything to get in touch with them, I hated paying $7 for the canned hamburger through suppliers but I had no choice.

If you find them...let me know, I have a feeling they won't do retail

If they don't have a retail website, then I doubt they sell direct. Many factories don't because of the hassles of having extra shipping personell for smaller orders. If that's the case, you'd have to buy in distributor quantities to buy direct. I've looked into that with canneries before.

On the positive side, they don't can anything that you can't can yourself. Even bacon. That's the cheapest way to do it.

Walmart is carrying canned meat in Ohio. Keystone Canning Co. located in Lima, Ohio. We tried the beef and pork and it was pretty good. They also have turkey and chicken. 5.63 for 28 oz.

Yes, if you can your own, you will never run out. Why depend on someone else

Just go to Amish country in Holmes or Wayne County in Ohio and ask for the Yoder family......that should narrow it down to about 250 families.......Burkettsville, Oh. They don't want you to find them.....$11 a can is what we get.

LOL...I was thinking more like 1000 Yoder families up there. I go to the Sugarcreek/Millersburg area often so I was hoping to find them...no luck!

I called Keystone today, their Beef & canned Hamburger has a (5) year shelf life.

I'm going through Lima, Ohio sometime in March so I'll pick up some of their products

"Yoder's" has no manufacturing plant. Their products are made by "Werling and Sons' in Ohio and re-labled as Yoder's.
You can buy direct from www.werlingandsons.com for substancially less than Yoder's.

It is so easy to can your own. Forget the pressure cookers and stuff. All that is for perfectionists.

Buy empty jars, lids and cheapest meat from local supermarket. Meat like pork shoulder and butt. Cheap as cheap meat can be. With two large pots you can get your own canned meat in no time.

Just finished another run.

Have purchased "Walnut Creek" (similar to Yoders) at the local Amish/Mennonite stores as cheap or cheaper that I can order from the factory. If there are any stores like that in your area I would try those.

By the way, have tried a bit of their product and it IS excellent.

Nice job, so that's how they are doing it...they are in Darke County, Ohio, just a couple of counties from me. I have been to Burkettsville many times, I'll check them out in a few weeks but I'm calling them today and check their retail prices!

There's a Mennonite grocery store near me in southern PA that sells Yoder's meats. You'd never guess 'cause it's a pretty big supermarket.
