    Over the past 2 days I have given away 2 dozen eggs. Some people might be saying “so what”? To give food away means that my wife and I have an excess food supply. Think about that for a minute. My wife and I bought our first chicks February 25, 2012. In all we ended up with 13 chickens...

    Hi all, Newbie here. Just signed up a month ago and have been reading almost non stop. Man my head is spinning! I just got started on my long term storage. So far I've put away 50# of white rice, 10# of Pinto beans, some elbow macaroni , some oatmeal and grits. All in 1 gallon sized Mylar...

    Im looking to find one of the best long term Freeze Dried Food companies to purchase a supply for the family incase of disaster,etc and food shortages? Im looking for the type of food packs that you would just need to add water. I have heard of a few different companies such as Mountain House...

    Hey guys. I think it'd be a good idea to have ~6 months food & supplies for my wife and I. However, our kitchen doesn't have many cabinets (and what we have we keep VERY full). Also, I'd like to store my food, along with some ammo and other supplies, somewhere very difficult to find. I have...

    Continued from my shelving project, I got some more can rotation systems installed, for a total of 13 racks. With those 13 racks, I should be able to store around 130 - 150 cans. On my veggie - fruit rack I have 2 free sections. Top shelf left to right: Open Open Corn - cream and whole...

    I am ready to start sealing some of my food storage. I am going to buy some mylar bags and O2's. Should I buy diatomaceous earth to mix into the foods? I have oatmeal, sugar, rice, masa, salt, white flour, potato flakes, and whole wheat grain. If I just use the mylar and O2's is this enough to...

    Trying to just map out and figure how much we need to ultimately get to a year's supply of food is challenging! From where to put it all to what would we eat over and over is a lot to think about. As far as eating canned food over and over (that we currently eat frequently today), I can only...

    I came across this list online. It was originally for 2 people for 3 months. Since there are 4 of us I doubled everything up. Do you think this is adequate for 4 people for 3 months. If I remember correctly it was considered to be the basics. What thinks ye'? FOOD STORAGE 90 DAYS-4 PEOPLE...

    Lets say SHTF tomorrow, what would your survival gear stockpile look like? For a lot of survivalist it would be mostly beans and bullets – meaning not very much thought has been put into the plans. When the SurvivalistBoards youtube channel was opened, I wanted to publish a wide range of...

    How long will oats last for when stored in mylar bags with an oxygen absorber? I have some gallon mylar bags, I would like to fill them about half way with oats, seal, the fill the other half with oats. These are the cans of rolled Quaker oats that you can get from the local china-mart...

    Is storing 5gallon bags of food a bad idea? I mean lets say EOTWAWKI comes along and its time to get out some beans and rice. I'll want some bread too. Can i use that much of each product before its gone bad? I suppose if its all i'm eating i'll go threw it quickly. Maybe this is an entirely...

    For a bug-in situation I have been wondering. For veggies that are available in the can, what is the advantage of dehydrating? I see why people would want to dehydrate items like brocolli and califlower that usually don't come in a can, but why dehydrate stuff like carrots, peas and beans...

    I am just now starting food storage for my family. It gets expensive quick so I am looking at cutting costs as well as saving space in my home. My question is: Why does everyone use the small 5 or 6 gallon buckets to store wheat instead of the 55 gallon drums? My newbie uneducated thoughts...
