Sendry Dehydrator Review

First off, I’d like to say that there is no disclosure on this post because I bought this dehydrator and it was not gifted for review. However, there are affiliate links in this post. So what this means is if you make a purchase through the link, I will make a small commission at no cost to you. Now on to the good stuff.

My Daughter and Son-in-law got this dehydrator  for me for Christmas this last year and so far I love it. This one is roughly in the middle as far as pricing goes and a good one for someone just starting out with dehydrating foods.

So first, what do I like about this machine. I like that it works well. I like that it is all digital. I love that it shuts off at the end of the time all by itself so I don’t have to monitor it constantly. I like that it came with stainless steel racks for drying. This allows the heat to get all the way around what ever you put in it.

Now on to what I do not like about this machine. I have to say there is really only one thing I don’t like. It’s digital. Now I know what you’re thinking, how can that be both a like and a dislike? Let me explain. The digital temperature does not go up by each number so if you need say 260 degrees, it would have to go to 263 or something like that. It goes up by a funny number. It’s not even like 2 or 5  degrees I want to say it’s more like 3 degrees at a time. So in this case, I don’t like it.


However, having only one dislike, I have to say that I would recommend this to you. I have been using it since Christmas and I really do like it. It works well and does what it’s supposed to do. Sometimes I may have to run it a couple times to get something really dehydrated but it I still love this thing and I still use it all the time. And guess what? It is available on Amazon. You can get it here: https://amzn.to/3vDuH3K

Do you have this dehydrator? I would love to hear your thoughts on it. Leave me a comment below and let me know.

Have a great day!



New Babies on the Farm

On the 5th of July, our goat Desi had 2 kids. I am so excited to introduce them to you! I love having babies on the farm because it reminds us that life is renewable in the form of the new babies born every year. Of course this also reminds us that death is a part of life as well because without life, there would be no death. However, when the new babies are born, we focus on the new life to try to make sure they get the best start to life.

This is Diamond and Honeysuckle. They are so very sweet already and very eager to take the bottle. It took them a little bit to get there but finally they are there. They both have very different personalities as well. Diamond is a little reserved (except when you have her bottle) and Honeysuckle is more outgoing and rambunctious.

Yet when Kira comes around Honeysuckle just wants to be held and snuggled with. It’s the cutest thing I have ever seen.

Diamond is all white with a brown spot on her side and a black spot on her tail. She gets the black from momma and the white from both momma and daddy. I’m not sure who carries the brown though but it showed up on both of these babies.

Honeysuckle has brown that goes around her head to cover her eyes as well but otherwise is white. Her momma is black and white while dad is purely white so I’m not sure which one carries the brown gene, but apparently one of them does.




They spent the first week of life in my house because it was so very hot this year. They were having trouble with the heat. They are now full time outside though. I can’t wait to see how these girls are gonna grow.

Have a great day!
