EP 09: Heather Kelly and Brad Hurd of Heather’s Choice
Native Alaskan Heather Kelly was tired of the limited food options available to backcountry travelers. So she did what nobody thought was possible and created her own foods, which lead to the creation of Heather’s Choice. Her dehydrated (not freeze dried) meals were the first pre-packaged options with real meat that were not overly processed. She literally started the trend and now has the biggest companies in the business paying attention.
I sat down with Heather and her boyfriend/business partner/operations manager/personal comedian Brad Hurd at the kitchen in Anchorage to talk about their history. They lead a fascinating life and have tremendous insights regarding backcountry nutrition.
After you listen to this podcast, do yourself a favor and buy some of their foods as fast as possible. We also have a limited inventory but growing inventory of Heather’s Choice available at shop.westernhunter.net
