Bushka’s Kitchen was created for the risk takers, the rebels,the journey junkies that want to live and breathe the outdoors. Our lineup of nutritionally balanced, delicious, freeze-dried meals will fuel any wild adventure – whether your wild is relaxing with family on a starlit camping trip or conquering the toughest mountaineering experiences.
Ready to eat by simply adding hot or cold water, Bushka’s Kitchen menu balances the need for a tasty while still healthy, gourmet yet affordable, filling but lightweight outdoor meal. We emphasize the important role proteins, carbohydrates, and fats play in outdoor nutrition to support feeling both full and fueled in the backcountry. Made by adventure seekers for adventure seekers.
The values that guide our meal crafting are the same values that guide us in the outdoors: quality and preparation.
Just like preparing dinner at home, the secret to great tasting food is quality ingredients and proper preparation. This is why we own our entire process – from sourcing and cooking the ingredients, freeze-drying each dish, and finally packaging into meal pouches. We stand behind what we produce and never compromise on the finished product.
We start by sourcing whole grains, fresh produce, and game meat from family farms and ranches. Then, we prepare our dishes with a critical eye towards balancing healthy fats with filling carbs all while ensuring each dish has enough protein. We never oversalt and season each dish to taste.
Since we own our freeze-dryers, this allows us to go straight from cooking to preservation and finally to packaging. Each meal pouch is filled and sealed by hand before being delivered to our consumers.
It’s impossible to define in a single sentence what the outdoors and backcountry is; likewise, it’s impossible to succinctly say what our wildspaces mean to each and every one of us.
Our goal has always been to create not only the best tasting adventure meals but also meals that support how adventure seekers interact with the outdoors – this means a lineup that includes both cold soaked and hot soaked dishes and both plant-based and meat-based dishes.
