Long-Term Food Storage - Perishable Foods

By Tim Gamble 

One of the most often repeated bits of prepper advice, and it is good advice as far as it goes, is to "stock food to the rafters" while you still can. This will help you to provide for yourself and your family in any dark times ahead, as well as provide a hedge against inflation even if we return to good times. 
Hopefully, you have already begun developing your "deep larder" with canned and dried foods, which will store for a long time. But some foods are perishable and difficult to store over the long-term. 

These perishable items, such as milk, cheese, butter, and eggs are problematic for long-term storage. Your best bet if you can't produce these yourself is powdered, dehydrated or freeze-dried products intended for true long-term storage (10 years or longer), but this option an be very expensive. For my money, Augason Farms has the best selection, excellent quality, and are reasonably priced compared to other long-tern food options. In fact, I ordered some more Augason Farms products this morning when I saw them on sale at Amazon .

Right now at Amazon, most Augason Farms products are listed as in-stock, and many are on sale at some great prices. Here are a few  examples (as of 11:00am EST on February 21, 2022):

Non-Fat Dry Milk = 46% off

Butter Powder = 56% off 

Tomato Powder = 29% off

Supplies and prices may not last, particularly with current circumstances, so don't drag your feet! 

Full disclosure: I have NO relationship with Augasan Farms other than being a satisfied customer. I am an Amazon affiliate and I do make a very small percentage off of sales made through links to Amazon on this website at no additional cost to you. Thank you for supporting this website!
