Products That Will Save Your Life
The Back40 family has been collecting and testing emergency preparedness products to insure their quality and usefulness. We will give you an honest assessment of what works for us, and let you know where you can buy it for your family.
Our promise to you is to do our best to clarify what you absolutely need for each situation; be it earthquake, storm damage or a civilization break down. Over the past few years we’ve tried out water purifiers, food dehydrators, “seed vaults”, knives, and solar power products. Because our family will be using them too, we will show you what we bought…. and how to best use them.
Also, we will let you know what products you probably already have around your house that can be used in survival situations. Some everyday items can easily be upcycled or adapted to create useful tools in an emergency.
If you have any experience with certain products that you absolutely swear by, please let us know. We will test and show it off. Every bit of help is welcome. Remember, we can survive if we come together as a community with the same goal….everyone pulls his weight, and everyone gets through it.
For many years home gardening has taken a back seat to other hobbies and outdoor past times. The most recent generations have considered gardening at home to be old fashioned and a waste of time, after all, vegetables and produce can be purchased at any local grocery store.

For thousands of years people have been cultivating and harvesting herbs to heal illness, improve our health, and add flavor to our foods. Herbs are easy to grow, easy to harvest, and for the most part, storing and preserving them is quite simple.
In these days of pills for everything, we forget that plants can take care of our ailments.
Wouldn’t you rather go into the garden than to the pharmacy? And what if you can’t get to medicines? Wouldn’t it be good to know that you can treat many illnesses with what you grow in your garden? Fortunately for us, most common herbs have been studied and tested, and their benefits documented. Learning which herbs to use and how to use them is as easy as opening a book.
This ingenious tool fits in your pocket but yet it is very strong and useful for emergencies around the house, on the road, or in case of disaster.
A Back 40 Survival Seed Vault ensures that you have the means to feed your family for a year, even if an emergency state causes a disruption in food distribution.
The Seed Bank is a waterproof canister that holds 16 sealed triple layer foil bags of seeds varieties that grow into nutrient rich foods. After a decade of testing, we insure that each container is guaranteed to safely store seeds for up to 4 years.
Our expert horticulturists have been testing the seed varieties in various garden environments to insure high yield and maximum success. The Back 40 Survival Seed Vault container includes 16 seed varieties of nutritionally dense vegetables and legumes. These 22,000 non-GMO non-hybrid seeds can be planted on an acre (or less) of land to feed a family of 4 for one year. As a special bonus, we included our proven growing guide to help make planting your garden foolproof.
Since the seed banks are fairly inexpensive, and take up little storage space, it makes sense to buy a few extras for your stockpile. Store them in various locations for safety. Use additional seed banks for barter. Remember, in a world where money has no value, possessing items, such as extra seeds, makes you very wealthy indeed.
By purchasing the Back 40 Survival Seed Vault, you will insure that you have the ability to feed your family, even when all other avenues are shut down. Seeds should be an essential part of your preparedness kit. You will be self-sufficient, and keep your loved ones from going hungry without help from outside.
