Food List

Originally published in 2016, here is a list of the things I keep in my home pantry. Note, we have re-acquired chickens and now hold around 125-150 birds at any given time.

I keep 12-15 cans of the following in my pantry at all times and rotate the oldest forward. Throughout the week we make a list on the fridge of any cans we use. Weekly my wife and I go to the store and replace what ever we’ve taken out of the stores.

This list can seem really daunting at first and expensive to acquire. However, we built it up over time. $10 in cans here and $10 in dry goods there.

Only thing we purchase from the store is bi-weekly meat or dairy purchases. We kept 40 chickens up until a few months ago when a tornado destroyed a 4 y.o. laying flock. (40 was excessive but we bartered and sold the eggs with locals.)

Alcohols and other comforts are also rotated out as needed or used. Same with 10gal fresh water.

Show And Tell

(You can call it whatever fun and exciting name fits your corporate culture.) Regardless of the name, the goal is to set aside an hour each week to share three kinds of security stories and our response to them. Stories that are in the news. Stories that impact our work. Stories that impact our lives.
