Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I’m planning on ordering a couple of large dehydrated and freeze dried food units. Now I know a lot of people pack their own long-term food supply (because of the $avings) but I’m just getting started and I don’t feel I have the time to start learning that from scratch. The situation in America is getting worse with each passing month and I think it is better to have a good stock of professionally prepared food supplies on order rather then looking for buckets, absorbers, bulk grains and hoping that I’ve done it correctly. Nothing could be worse then opening a bucket during an emergency situation only to find that the food spoiled because you were a newbie when you packed it. We are a household of four adults with little to no preps. I think the first step is to order a six month food supply as well as a Berky. My plan is to get one order of dehydrated that needs to be manually prepared (like the stuff Walton Feed sells) and another order of freeze dried that can be prepared much more easily. I’m hoping that this will provide the best variety for the dollar. I’m thinking of getting “Security FoodPak 1” from Pleasant Hill Grain: http://www.pleasanthillgrain.com/foodpak1.aspx And the “Deluxe Freeze Dried 3 Month Supply for 4 People” from the Internet Grocer: http://www.internet-grocer.net/3mo-4mh.htm The reason I’m considering Pleasant Hill instead of Walton Feed is because I hear Walton is overwhelmed with orders right now and I don’t want to wait forever to get my stuff. I know that buying this stuff is just the beginning and I will need to add more items, like cooking oil and a grain mill, but I think it’s a good start. Any thoughts or advice? Has anyone here ever dealt with these companies before?
