Just wanted to drop in and ask a quick question. I'm planning on buying a large quantity of this stuff.....i've got to run the numbers on our usage level, but i'd like to buy 10 years worth of supply, and if I have more room, going for longer. I know this stuff is supposed to last "forever"...
I have 2 buckets (roughly 7 gallons) plus many quarts of honey stored away.
I use the quarts, but the gallons are " just in case".
I look at buying more, but methinks I'm overdoing it...
I have sugar, salt, rice, beans, etc.
will be getting more rice and different types of beans soon for...
Hubby knows I want to get into it, and he found a thing called Honey Flow
I am sure it's expensive, and I'm not sure if they are selling the plans or the whole thing. So what's your opinion?
Any Bee Keepers out there? My father and I are talking back and forth about it and are wondering if its worth the investment. Not only for the honey but for the bees ability to spread pollen and make our wild or grown plants better.
I've recently completed a course on bee keeping provided by a master bee keeper. I originally wanted to see if I would be a good fit for it and if my property would be a good fit for them. After the course I have fallen in love with the idea. I'm so excited to start my hives this year and...
We just started keeping bees this Spring. So far things seem to be going well. After seeing all the new comb they built, we installed the queen excluder & added a super for "our honey". We have more pics on our facebook page, also. http://www.facebook.com/beesimplefarm
Hey guys. I'm obviously new here, but I've been researching long term food storage and am up to date on most of the basic techniques for doing so. I'm in the planning stages of getting my food ready. I have to acquire my buckets and pick and store the foods that I want to keep until I get...
I have read into bee pollen, and albeit many claims tend to be along the lines of snake oil, there seems to be some good data surrounding its benefits and nutrient/protein composition.
Factoid-type list of information
Bee Pollen is a...
76% - 77% of the honey tested did not have pollen in it.
While looking at the honey at walmart last night, I thought it was odd that the jars has a date...
Most don't know about this food problem so please read the whole story......
If it has honey on , or in it, already...........DON'T BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wanna stockpile honey - do I buy it 5 gallons at a time or individually in the supermarket in the squeeze bottles - can the 5 gal be opened/closed over and over as long as its kept cool?
how do you know when honey has gone bad?
Lets talk about peanut butter sandwiches, how do you make yours?
Peanut butter on both pieces of bread?
Whole wheat bread?
Jelly, jam, honey, or something else?
Milk with that sandwich?
Natural peanut butter, or with partially hydrogenated oils?
I like mine with creamy natural peanut butter...

Beekeeping is an ancient DIY art, performed by amateurs and makers for centuries. Anyone can produce natural honey at home. People keep bees in many different...
Don’t want to stockpile 1,000 pounds of dried rice and beans? Want something that taste a little better then MREs? Want something that you don’t have to worry about rotating out?
One of the main problems with stockpiling survival food preps, is that people sometimes stockpile what they do not...
This is what I consider the absolute bare minimum 1 year food supply for a single person. Stored at BOL with no food rotation possible. Thus the long shelf life requirement.
Keeping 3 goals in mind
1) Absolute minimum food requirements
2) Longest storage life possible
3) Cheap as possible...
I have noticed many of the experts who talk about "survival" food will make comments about not forgetting what might be one of the perfect survival foods "honey". I have also noticed Kev mentions "honey" often when a thread comes up about preps.
I did know there was value to honey, but a couple...
