Adventures in Survival: Food Storage

Adventures in Survival: Food Storage

- in Survival Skills

A brief overview of how my family stores food for an emergency situation and our thought process for acquiring certain items. -/month used very strategically can build a family a nice supply of food if you stay dedicated to the cause.

Being prepared for an emergency is the sensible thing to do because in the end we are responsible for our own well being and it’s foolish as adults to expect other people[government] to take care of us in an emergency situation.

Thanks for watching!

  1. The truth is we have never been more disconnected from life, from the world, from the soil, from the trees, and from our own souls. Prepere ? video here

  2. Also add dried lentils, kidney beans, black beans, lima beans and brown rice has more nutritional value than white rice and is more filling, plus oils for cooking etc ;-)

    Should get some MRE's

  4. Looks good, I went to dehydrate some of my canned pineapples and peaches they were discolored so I dumped them on the side of caution. I try to rotate, but like you, buying extra, adds over the month so you cannot eat in rotation and build up a
    stockpile. I backed off fruits. Becareful of your tomato sauce to, I just happened to notice a couple of cans bulging. So I dumped them to. But get this, I just ate from a can from the same time span and it was fine. Just be careful.

  5. I put my preps in five-gallon and three-and-a-half gallon buckets. They are free at one grocery store bakery because they just throw them out. They come with a lid and rubber gasket, too, but they have residual frosting (for donuts) in them, which you have to thoroughly wash. Some grocery stores in town charge $1 each, but that includes the lid. I put most of my food in ziploc bags into the buckets and snap the lids on and label them by writing on duct tape and sticking it to the outside. They are portable and stackable, helpful for obvious reasons!

  6. Bro,you are on point!!!!!

  7. you are the best father in the world…. good job

  8. Great video! As you're big rice eaters, you could stock up on some bouillon cubes, great way to add flavour and they have a long shelf life.

  9. Thanks for letting us know.


  11. Thank you for sharing! I found you when I was looking for ideas on how to organize my food storage – you are very organized! I'm wondering if the rice you have in the canning jars is dry canned? I have some that I've vacuum packed, but I see a lot of people doing the "oven canning" or "dry canning" of rice and dried beans to extend the shelf life to several years.

  13. no kraft mac and cheese come on.bro;)

  14. Awesome job!!!!

  15. Couponing will also help you stretch your money to increase your storage of food and goods. Did you invest in a generator? Freezing meat is good, but should you loose electricity then you loose a lot of food. A freeze dryer is a good investment to prolong the life of your food storage. Great video, thanks for sharing and keep up the good work.

    You need to see "Sensible Food Storage" on C. Westfall's channel. It's the cheapest, easiest and most practical guide to food, water storage, canning and cooking you will find. A year's supply for one person will under a twin bed, so it doesn't take up a ton of room.

  17. I don't know how much land you have but have you thought of biointensive farming to produce fresh food for your family. The Derives family in California grows over 6,000lbs on 1/10th of an acre.

  18. Are you a Latter day Saint? They're really big on food storage.

  19. Buttercup Cottage

    I have salt, coffee and stuff to make detergent for clothes in my barter storage. Great video.

  20. In an emergency situation, family dogs can share some of your food with no ill effect provided it is cooked: carrots, peas, lentils, tomato, cabbage, sauerkraut, cucumbers, celery (peeled), of course chicken/fish/beef are all okay, and rice and beans are okay in moderation. They CAN'T have: bacon, onions, excessive salt (even a normal human portion), chocolate, spices, alcohol, etc.

    Thanks for the video! You're inspiring me to set up some pantry shelves. Gotta do it.
