Since I love supporting local businesses and I’m always looking for quick ways to feed my family, spending an evening at Farm to Freezer in York, PA was a no brainer!
What is Farm to Freezer York?
Farm to Freezer helps take the hassle out of grocery shopping, meal planning and countless hours in the kitchen. They offer rotating freezer cooking sessions where you join a group for two hours and collectively prepare six different meals to take home, each serving a family of four!! They also have a “Freezer Club” that provides ready-to-cook frozen meals bi-weekly for pick up or delivery!
I love to create recipes, cook and serve guests dinner, but I’m not opposed to enjoying some great-tasting food prepared by someone I trust! The best part, they use local farmers, butchers, businesses and seasonal ingredients.
A fun "Girls Night Out!"
For a fun “Girls Night Out,” a dear friend and I decided to try out Farm to Freezer’s Winter Crockpot Menu. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Mary Ellen and her friendly staff. All of the recipes, ingredients and the food containers were already set out, all we had to do was show up for two hours, have fun and help put together the delicious menu items.
What I loved most: Mary Ellen and her staff did ALL the prep work and clean up! I value a well-thought out plan and organization, and they nailed it. We simply walked in, opened our bottle of wine, found a station and started combining each meal’s ingredients, chatting and having FUN.
The result… SIX easy, healthy, delicious meals to take home, freeze and use whenever we want. Before finishing up, we were able to choose from a variety of delicious pre-made food items that are available for the public to stop by, purchase and take home to enjoy!

5 Slow-Cooker Freezer Meals You Can Prep and Freeze
Making slow-cooker freezer meals is easy to do. You’ll need to purchase some gallon-size plastic bags. Add the ingredients (including the sauce) into the freezer bag and seal. Just make sure the air is squeezed out of the bag before freezing it.
Before you plan on cooking the meal, you’ll want to defrost it in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Most of these meals call for chicken, beef or vegetable stock when you cook the meal. This would be added after dumping the bag of ingredients into the slow cooker, so make sure to read the instructions before turning the slow cooker on.
