Cliff Wold’s Custom Packed Deluxe Meals

To access our online Menu Selection Form, click here.

At Cliff Wold’s, we know great food is a key ingredient to a satisfying canoe trip. We combine top quality freeze dry meats, fruits and vegetables with our special gravies and sauces to make the finest, tastiest meals you will find on the canoe trails.

How the Food is Packaged and Packed

The food is measured out and packaged in our spotlessly clean food packing rooms by our trained, experienced staff, just for a group’s particular size. All fresh foods are flash frozen to keep them fresh until you are ready to leave for the canoe trails.

All food is packed by the meal and by the day to make it convenient for you to easily find all the ingredients for a particular meal. Each meal has a check-off list for contents and each food package has cooking directions on how to prepare the food item. Plus, each meal package contains a cooking hints sheet telling how to find wood, start the fire, and hints on preparing the meals. And each meal packet where you are to cook contains a “cleaning packet” containing: matches to start your fire, a small bar of soap to wash your hands and soap-up the outside of all cooking kettles, soap powder for washing dishes, and a steel wool cleaning pad for the “hard to get off” soot and food particles. You will find this not only useful, but handy.

How to Select Your Canoe Trail Menu

Please Note: Your Menu Selection Form should be completed at least 3 weeks before your arrival date. We like to have all food and equipment packed and ready to go when you arrive.

This form gives us the final count should the group size change from the original reservation. If the group comes up short of the number of people placed on this form, there is a $15 per person per day charge for each person the group is short. This charge is to cover the extra food which we cannot remove easily from the packs. The group leader selects 3 meals for each day of the group’s trip. A 6-day trip, for example, includes 15 meals – 5 breakfasts, 5 lunches and 5 dinners. This food plan covers the travel schedule for most groups; however, if you plan to stay out later on the last day, an extra lunch can be packed for a nominal fee.

Selecting your Breakfasts

When being outfitted by Cliff Wold’s you have a wide selection of meals. For example, if you want “Blueberry Pancakes & Bacon” twice on the Canoe Trails, place the mornings you wish it served in the space to the left of the breakfast. If you prefer fresh eggs to freeze dry eggs, place the mornings on the Canoe Trip you want these served. (Because of breakage, a second breakfast of fresh eggs should not be selected later than the third day on the Canoe Trails.) We pack 2½ eggs per person per serving to cover any breakage. Just be careful how you handle the food pack containing eggs. Our “Scrambled Eggs with Bacon Bits” contain freeze dry eggs and imitation bacon bits. All of our bacon is extra smoked for long life out on the Canoe Trails. Depending on the weather, it will last up to ten or twelve days. Our sausage links breakfast should be eaten the first morning on the Canoe Trails and no later than the second morning. All fresh meats are flash frozen after being packaged, and they are kept frozen until you leave on your trip. We pack eggs in protective containers. Also, for any morning you prefer orange flavored juice with vitamin C added, place the number of mornings in the blank space provided.
