I have noticed a trend over the last few years when it comes to food storage,  A lot of companies are claiming anything in order to get your business. I wanted to expose these things as food storage lies, whether intentional or not.

At the very least, they are misleading claims, but having received many calls and emails from food storage companies, I had to share this list of what I see as

Can I Keep Chickens in My Backyard?

chickens5

If you have made the decision that you would like to try your hand at keeping some chickens in your backyard, there are a few considerations that you might want to make first, and although you have probably thought of some of these, there just might be a few that might come as a surprise.

 

Legality of Raising Backyard Chickens

Probably the very first question you should ask yourself about raising chickens is, can I raise chickens in my backyard?’ You know, legally. I know, I know. If you are slightly stubborn like I tend to be you

dutch_oven_campfire

This past April I put out a request for food storage recipes. My intent was to have some kind of contest with all the recipes that came flooding in. Unfortunately – the actual number of recipes received was relatively low. Rather than let them all go to waste I figured I would go ahead and publish some of them.

Thanks Harry for the idea to begin with!

It seems that everyone has had one bad experience with someone’s pet goat, and for that reason, I hear many folks disparage the entire species.  Now, just imagine that you are an intelligent, sociable creature and someone has chained you to the

Idea’s for cheap food storage

food storage, pancakes, SHTF, preparedness

Like many others I am living on a fairly strict budget. Adding to my food storage is not always easy as I have two boys that I must keep fed. In some recent discussions with other like-minded folks the subject of “budget foods” came up. Basically those are foods that can be bought very inexpensively to add to a program to increase the overall food stores.

Let’s look at a few “budget foods”:

Rice – Rice is super cheap with larger bags of 20 and 50 pounds running around $20 – depending on brand and where bought. Rice is prepared

Prepping Doesn’t Have to Drive You Crazy!

The following is a guest post entry into our Survival & Preparedness Writing Contest.

by Leslie

Prepping can be overwhelming; I know it has been for me. Where to start? What to buy? How much is enough? Am I missing something my family will need in a crisis? These questions circulate through my brain constantly, and I have been prepping for a while now. I remember how intimidating it was in the beginning. That is why I came up with a plan and would like to share it with those who might need a simple method for organizing your efforts. I

My favorite “survival” food

beef-stew-rice

My food storage program consists of grocery store foods, freeze dried, dehydrated, and bulk stores such as rice, wheat, and beans. I have been thinking that I really need to inventory everything and come up with a menu system. Having a schedule of what we can and will prepare would likely take the edge off what will already be a very stressful time. It would just be one less thing to worry about. From there I started thinking about what I have and what my favorite “survival” meal would be – which I would want to ration out.

Why MRE Food Is Crucial For Disaster Emergency Planning

Why MRE Food Is Crucial For Disaster Emergency Planning

by Billy Brown

You don’t have to be a doomsday prepper to be prepared for an emergency. With so many tornadoes and hurricanes it just makes sense to be prepared to evacuate your area at a moments notice. You’ll need to have a food supply, shelter and method of transportation during a disaster. How prepared are you?

Too Bulky

Most people have canned foods prepared to grab at a moments notice in an emergency, but many of those foods require special preparation in order to eat them. Additionally,

BULK FOOD INTERNATIONAL- Tangible Assets You Can Eat!
