In this complex world there are still a few simple things ... isn't it time to get back to basics?

Food and water are the core of a preparedness plan.  The four basic food items for survival are wheat, dehydrated milk, honey (or sugar) and salt but a long term food storage program requires variety including some "Quick to Fix" items for the weary cook.  Through gardening and home food preservation stocking the pantry becomes self-sufficient living.

Homesteading is a term used for the 'back to the land movement', 'self reliant living', 'self-sufficiency', 'back to basics', or the 'simple life'.

This type of 'Country Living' includes rural residents, hobby farmers, suburban gardeners, as well as folks living in cities who are doing what they can to decrease their dependence on the system by gardening, home canning, using renewable energy or having long term food storage.

Community gardens are growing in popularity in every major city in the U.S. More alternative energy systems are found in the suburbs than anywhere else. Self-reliant living means developing skills to provide for basic needs; whether to save money, for emergency preparedness, to insure quality, or so we can stop supporting unethical and destructive industries.

Self-Reliance is the ultimate pursuit of freedom.
We strongly encourage gardening, livestock and home food preservation. We promote the use of alternative energy systems in applicable situations. And we believe in being prepared for trying times with stored food, and emergency medical supplies. Being self-sufficient is far more enjoyable than basic survival.


We believe business goes where it is cordially invited and abides where it is well treated. On this basis, we strive for your satisfaction and solicit your feedback.
