    Last year I learned a clever organic trick to this common issue. What you do, is spray a mix of water and milk on the leaves, on a sunny day. The mixture can vary, depending on how much protein is in the milk, but I used about 50-50 with 1% milk, and I had great success with that...

    Fox news posted an article saying 1 in 6 who drink raw milk get sick. Some of those cases are serious and can lead up to kidney failure. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2013/12/12/raw-milk-1-in-6-who-drink-it-gets-sick/ Supporting article...

    It seems like preparadness types are nuts over rice & beans, and for good reason. I guess two foods together are pretty nutritous, and both store well and are pretty lightweight when dehydrated. Wheat is also pretty popular for a lot of the same reasons, and it has an effectively unlimited...

    Hey Guys, So I was really torn trying to find a good local source for large quantities of beans, peas, powdered milk, etc. Yeah I can pick up rice, sugar, salt etc from Costco but the above isn't available unless I special order it and pay for shipping. Not to mention having large deliveries...

    I was at my local CO-OP and found I could pick up a pound of dry milk powder for $1.11. Wondering if this was a good price I checked out Costco and found I could order a 14lb pail for 56.99. That's $4.07 per pound. Why the heck is it so much more expensive? Yes it does come in a Mylar bag...

    It amazes me that people in general have such bad attitudes towards breastfeeding. In the 1940s when women had to go to work in the factories, and through the 1960s bottle feeding gained a lot of popularity. But it seems to me that breastfeeding should be common sense, why hate on a mother...

    If I use mylar bags and o2 absorbers in a bucket, will powder milk store for a long period of time? How long do you think? Thanks and Merry Christmas! Joe

    I have two younger boys and the amount of powdered milk I am going to need for storage is 150-250 pounds. That is big bucks considering. Has anyone found a cheap vendor for milk? I was looking on honeyvillagegrain.com and for 150lb/$529. Its the cheapest I found so far. Thought I would throw...

    So to my disappointment, I've found that Milkman (my favored powdered milk of which I had a bit) is no longer available, as they've discontinued it (1.5-2 yrs ago apparently). So I was wondering if anyone had suggestions of their own on good varieties of readily available powdered milk brands...

    Greetings, Bee prepared document says powdered milk storage at 50 degrees is 48 month if the air is replaced in the package (i.e.: #10 can with oxygen absorber. beprepared.com says food in #10 cans can be kept up to 25 years. A simple question: How long powdered milk bought in #10 cans from...

    Is there a place I can get powdered milk for a reasonable price? I know... fresh is best, get some goats! But it won't work for us right now, so I'm starting with powdered milk. :o: Any websites you can think of? Thanks.

    What can those of you in the know, tell me about unpasteurized milk? I have recently been reading up on this topic, but want to hear from others who may consume it as well.

    Score one for the good guys. Back in the 60s and 70s, it was reported that Baby formula companies ran ads saying that formula was better then breast milk. well, we all know that is a lie. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080430/ap_on_he_me/breast_feeding;_ylt=Ai1heSuu7UFUDNQNNe9L7QvVJRIF
