In these uncertain times, many people have begun to grow and store their own food to prepare for the possibility of commercial food shortages in the future. You will find people from all walks of life are filling up their spare rooms with buckets of wheat, oats, beans and cans of freeze dried foods, meats and vegetables. From the serious “Preppers” to average families concerned about what the future may have in store.
There is a general consensus that the time has come to “hunker down” and prepare for hard times. Still many ask, “What will we do in six months or a year when the stored food runs out?” Or, “What will we do when our friends and family come to us for help and because we choose to share; our year’s supply of stored food now only lasts for three months?”
