Is there some place you plan on buying them from or are you trying to freeze dry your own? I have been stockpiling dry food for about 7 months now.
I have no freeze dryed stuff, what I have is as follows
Jasmine Rice (good Stuff)
Dry Kidney Beans
Dry Navy Beans
Dry Great Northern Beans
Dry Sweet Peas
Dry Split Peas
Dehydrated field Peas
Dehydrated Butter Beans
Dehydrated (shreded) Potatoes
Dehydrated Pinapple (good stuff)
Instant Mashed Potatoes
Also bought a food dehydrator, about 5 months ago I ordered one 6 gallon bucket of dehydrated peas which took OVER 4 months to be delivered, (when I
called them and asked them why it was taking so long, they said they have some very important customers ordering large amounts). So after hearing
that and reading on the web that "some" federal agency is buying alot of long term storable food.. here is a link to an article you may or may not
I decided to buy a home food dehydrator which has been going nonstop..
the quality of the dehydrated food is very high, and reconstituts well.
I want to develop a minimum 3 year food supply that I will rotate when fully stocked.
P.S Total food on hand rough estimate for my family of 3, we can survive for about a year and a half with what I got on hand now.
