    In an apocalyptic grid-down situation affecting the entire country a la "One Second After" would trains be a realistic source of supplies and material? I live in Southern Indiana and in my town I see trains go by with Corn, Wheat, Cattle, Hogs, Coal etc. I have no idea how practical it would...

    I couldn't find an all-inclusive discussion on this forum (and I hope this is the correct location for the topic) reguarding wheat berries.

    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...

    I called my local feed store and I asked if they have wheat. They have it for 12.95 for 50 pounds. He said there was nothing added to the wheat and they picked it themselves. He told me it was wheat seed and can be used for animal feed too. I am wondering would the wheat seed be the same as the...

    Let's suppose I had a years worth of flour all vacuum sealed with o2 absorbers, how would that compare to the same with bags of wheat grain?

    I have noticed a lot of the year supply packages of survival food has wheat in it. What is the purpose of unground wheat? Are people getting it that way & then grinding it for flour?

    Looking at the most easily grown and sustainable food that the earth has to offer, I think that wheat, beans and potatoes are the true survivalist foods. If you are planting anything this year, invest some extra effort and gain some experience in potatoes and beans. This fall, make a small...

    I was in Costco and saw they had 45 lbs of hard white wheat sealed in 6 gallon buckets. It says on the bucket that it is sealed with less than 10% moisture. Company is Lehi Roller Mills. They are $19. It would be nice to buy them and not have to repackage. Does anyone know how these store long...

    I can buy flour in #10 tins that will keep for 20 yrs. So why cant I put flour in mylar with oxygen absorbers and expect it to stay good for at least a few years? what is the difference, if it will keep in a tin, it should keep in mylar, right? I dont want to buy buckets of wheat, I dont have...
  19. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I was wondering about sealing flour in mylar bags inside of 5 gallon buckets. Anyone ever done this? Is it a good idea or should I just stick to wheat and a grinder? any help on this topic would be appreciated. Also sugar, anyone storing this? thanks in advance.
  20. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Exactly what is the differences between store bought (EE, etc) vs. local feed store wheat and other grains? I have done alot of searching and have found some info. What should I look for at a feed store in making a purchase of "good" grains? Any and all help is appreciated!:thumb:
