The Honeyville story goes back to 1942, when founder Lowell Sherratt Sr. participated in a federal program to help resettle displaced Japanese-americans who were given the option to move away from the West Coast. Sherratt saw the need and helped move these American citizens out of California—thereby avoiding the internment camps—to farmland in Utah. In the 1950s, Sherratt bought a small grain company in Honeyville, Utah. The Honeyville company soon made its name in many different products in the food industry. These ranged from baking supplies and fresh grains to food storage. Hearty Outdoors is just the latest in that successful line. In addition to these meals, Honeyville offers a wide variety of baking supplies, bulk dried fruits, vegetables, dairy, meats, grains and an assortment of cookbooks, cutlery, appliances and other useful items for the kitchen.
