    ALL FOOD costs will be rising in 2013, across all categories. Commodities markets such as corn, soy, sugar, coffee will all see huge increases in volume & price volatility. Bottom line: stock your pantries up now. Buy a used 2nd freezer & stockpile foods you favor in your pantry as well as your freezer. Grow a fall/winter garden, learn how to can & pickle your bumper crops. Join a CSA, raise backyard chickens. BE PREPARED for the coming changes, BEFORE they come... (September is PREPAREDNESS month here in Atlanta & I think in the entire state of Georgia.)

      Two years ago I was doing research into starting a homestead (would still love to do it one day)... And I really liked these guys. I seem to remember they had some how to's on how to raise pigs. They are a home grown outfit, even raised money from their community to build their own onsite butcher shop and cold storage room.

          Make no mistake about it, this is a fu*king DISASTER.
          Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

                The "It's SO cute!" period for pigs is amazingly short.

                  When we raised pigs, we fed them the scraps from the restaurants we worked at. Three of us took 5 gallon buckets to work each day. We worked at three different restaurants: a Mexican restaurant, a breakfast place, and an Asian place. Their favorites were bacon, sausage, and raw turkey skins (left over from making all those "chicken" wontons). They did get lots of corn chips and beans as well. Wouldn't it be great if today's pig farmers tried this in conjunction with their nearby restaurants? They probably can't due to health codes, but there is nothing to prevent a private citizen from raising their own pigs on leftovers.
