Food Prices and The Factors That Effect Them!
Host: James Walton “I Am Liberty”
It takes a bit of forecasting in order to be effective and prepared. I could tell you how to keep warm this week as many parts of the nation are experiencing colder than normal temperatures. The fact is the average person needs some lead time to make money, save money and spend money on effective preparedness.
On I Am Liberty we are going to talk about food prices and how these most recent weather events are going to affect them. Not just the weather but other factors will also play a huge role in the what your grocery receipt will look like come this summer or maybe sooner. This is a huge topic I am not hearing much about.

For much of the country, it’s the END of gardening and canning season. And many of us are ready for a break from the endless gardening, (watering!) harvesting, and preserving we’ve been doing these last few months. But it’s never too early to start thinking about, and planning next year’s harvest. I have a few ideas to share with you on how to better face the future challenges coming our way in regards to continuing to produce quality, healthy nutritionally sound food for our families. We are all going to have to become more efficient with, and better stewards of, our resources as the perfect storm of weather, rising food prices, and economic “stresses” loom ahead.
So join me, Renée (aka Michigansnowpony) and my co-host Katzkradul this Thursday night, October 25th on the “Homestead Honey Hour” as we talk about not only streamlining our gardens for optimal results and nutrition, but also introduce to you the idea of “rotational canning” (and dehydrating) to help fill your pantry without the stress of trying to get it ALL done every year.
Whether you garden in the ‘burbs, on a country homestead, or get your produce from the local farmers’ markets to can and preserve, tune in and together, we can help make next season even more “fruitful”!

On this show of the Homestead Honey Hour, Noreen will be taking the wheel and bringing on a heavy topic. Have you been paying attention? Our world is turning topsy turvy. From turmoil in the middle east to trouble on the home front, we are facing trying times here in America and across the world. You cannot deny that the global and domestic economy is moving like a listing ship. With unemployment at an all time high, gas prices and food prices going sky high, we are facing what could be the most drastic economic outlook in history. How are we going to deal with it?
As preppers and homesteaders, we feel like we are ready for anything. But are we? Are we mentally ready to face what we may see happening to our family friends and neighbors? Lets take an hour to chat about the current climate. Lets talk about the urgency that I know many people are feeling. Lets share how we think we will deal with things. Together we do anything, no matter how hard times may become. Sharing our skills and abilities is important. Creating our own “colony” will be important to do in the time leading up to a prospective collapse. How do we do that? I am sure I don’t have all the answers, however together I am certain we can figure it out!
