    When survivalist start stockpiling food, we buy #10 cans and usually store food in mylar bags. Lets say we had to focus on certain foods, what would those foods be? How do we decide which foods we should focus on? Lets narrow our selections to how easy the food is to grow, how well it...

    I'd like to be able to store a couple hundred pounds of grains, rice, beans, flour, etcetera. I'd also like to be able to use it regularly and keep it rotated. I have the idea of having small silos, maybe about the size of a 55 gallon barrel. That way, I can pour fresh stuff in the top, and...

    I found a place that is selling 5 gallon food grade buckets with lids for 2.00 each. My question is how many do you think I should get? Grains, legumes, dry milk, rice, beans. Three people. Or better yet does anyone know how many pounds there are in a 5 gallon bucket? For example I need 400 lbs...

    I have read a lot of questions concerning the storage of food preps. I understand the need to store canned goods and freeze dried food in metal cans and under cool dry conditions. I built a storage pantry in a back bedroom and storing them under normal house climate conditions is absolutely...
