Completely 100 Percent Off-Grid – 9 Essential Foods You Should Produce. Photo sources – see foot of article
Self-sufficiency is an important aspect of off-grid living. If you live in a property that has enough space for raising animals and growing edible plants, you can create a supply of food. A functional homestead is a key objective of many off-grid enthusiasts.
According to homesteader and seed breeder Carol Deppe, the five crops that homesteaders need to survive and thrive are potatoes, corn, beans, squash, and eggs. This information is in her book The Resilient Gardener, which focuses on growing staple crops for food self-sufficiency.
For this article, we have grouped the essential foods you should grow into four: Protein, grains, fruits and vegetables, and others. Here is the list of foods that you should consider implementing for self-reliance in uncertain times.
Beans belong to the legume family of vegetables that also includes peas, lentils, and chickpeas. Rich in protein, beans are easy to grow and can be stored during winter. Deppe suggests growing different species of beans including favas, peas, and common beans. Growing the climbing type is ideal for maximizing space.
Chickens are one of the most sustainable living meats that you can consider when it comes to living off the grid. For survivalists, you will need chickens that lay eggs and poultry chickens which are raised for eating. Some people prefer letting their chickens roam free, but keeping them in a fully-contained area will keep them safe from predators lurking outside your fences.
Nick Klein, a renowned rabbit keeping instructor, stressed in an interview the importance of rabbits as a key to efficient food production. According to Klein, a 6 x 4 living space could produce over 4,000 pounds of live rabbits a year.
Native Americans have been growing and consuming corn or maize for centuries. This prolific grain crop requires up to four months of warm weather for production. Corn can be an important staple grain once you have addressed pests or soil issues which usually occur in the first year of growing the crop.
Wheat is another crop that is easy to grow almost anywhere in temperate regions. You could use your front yard to plant six pounds of wheat which could produce nearly fifty pounds of grain. Before you start growing your wheat, you have to learn how the grain behaves, the issues that beset its cultivation, and the impact of varying climate conditions on the grain.
Fruits & Vegetables
6. Winter Squash
Winter squash is one of the storage crops that a truly self-sufficient garden must have. There are six winter squash types that are favorites of American organic farmers including butternut squash, delicata squash, acorn squash, hubbard squash, spaghetti squash, and buttercup squash. Appropriate pest management and watering are necessary if you want to get a good yield of winter squash in your first year.
Planting trees needs to be one of your highest priorities if you are a homesteader. Apple trees take six to ten years before they will bear serious amounts of fruit, so patience and forward planning are important. An apple tree may take a few years to start producing big crops for you, but planting apple trees is well worth the wait.
Potatoes can grow pretty much anywhere. These vegetables should be a major storage crop in your garden when living off the grid. They are a sustainable food source that is easy to acquire and inexpensive to grow. You can grow them in open ground or recycled coffee sacks.
There are several reasons why you should add bees to your homestead. Keeping beehives or boxes provides your crops with a diversity of pollinating insects to assist in the process. Raw honey offers amazing health and healing benefits including combating allergies and healing burns. Honey is a popular sale item and a potential source of additional income.
This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:
According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.
It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.
Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!
As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?
But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!
The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.
This gives you real water security!

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)
After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.

Most People Don't Have The Guts To Try This:
An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:

I Can't Help Showing This Off:
If you haven't heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and watch this video.
One of the smartest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting, Claude set-up a unique prepping system that changed his life forever.
