Uncle Lester says, get Organic Whole Grain Foods.
Order 50lb bags of these from your healthfood store:
Lundberg Short grain Brown Rice, 400lbs or more.
Arrowhead Mills assorted beans: Anasazi, Black, Red, Navy, Garbanzo, Adzuki. Get 100lbs ea.
Rolled Oats: 100lbs
Hard Red Winter Wheat 600-800lbs
Split peas and Green/Red Lentils
Buy honey, local from a beekeeper if you can find one, call your County Ag Agent. Get a bucket or two.
50lb bag of Sea Salt
about 30gals of olive oil, regular, not extra virgin
Costco or Sams, load up on canned foods in #10 cans and couple 4# pkgs
of yeast. Buy some flour, but you also want an electric mill for your
Wheatberries and to make flour sometimes from your beans.
You got solar/electric/generator system right?
Buy another freezer and load up on meats and frozen Veges.
Got gardening gear? If not, get it.
Got Carla Emory Encyclopedia of Country Living? If not....
Got Mother EArth News #1-100 on CDrom?
you get your food together, order the stuff at healthfood store and get
your 10% off special order discount, or order where you can get it.
Ask the Ag agent if any Certified Organic farmers around and call and
ask at Farmer's Co-op.
Get your whole grains, then buy new 5gal
paint buckets with gasket lids. You're gonna buy blocks of CO-2 Dry Ice
at the grocers and make your own food storage. Wipe out the buckets
with mild vinegar or water & bleach solution, maybe just rinse with
soap and water. Ea bucket will hold about 35lbs of grain, 25 of oats.
Need about 1 two pound CO-2 brick per 6 buckets.
about 1/3 with grain, wrap dry ice in towel or fine fabric and smash
with hammer until you get chips size of your fingernail. Layer about 9
chips on top of the first 1/3 and repeat twice until bucket is full.
Lay lid loosely over the grain and in 40 mins the chips will have
gassified and driven out the 02, then you hammer down the lid firmly and
apply your label. Easy to store, easy to move. Have eaten Brown Rice
stored this way that was 14yrs old and it tasted Perfect and Fresh...
Buy some good quality vitamins also, not cheap sinthesized crap.
as well build your health and use your time to cook and enjoy your
life. See my other archived survivalism articles for more on food.
Wish you The Best!
