One of the most often repeated bits of prepper advice, and it is good advice as far as it goes, is to "stock food to the rafters" while you still can. This will help you to provide for yourself and your family in any dark times ahead, as well as provide a hedge against inflation even if we return to good times.
Hopefully, you have already begun developing your "survivalist pantry" with canned and dried foods, which will store for a long time. But some foods are perishable and difficult to store over the long-term.
These perishable items, such as milk, cheese, butter, and eggs are problematic for long-term storage. Your best bet, if you can't produce these yourself, is powdered, dehydrated or freeze-dried products intended for true long-term storage (a decade or more), but this option an be very expensive. For my money, Augason Farms has the best selection, excellent quality, and are reasonably priced compared to other long-tern food options. In fact, I ordered some more Augason Farms products earlier this week when I saw them on sale at Amazon .
Right now at Amazon, most Augason Farms products are listed as in-stock, and many are on sale at some great prices. Here are a few examples (as of 2:00 pm EST on December 1, 2023):
