Need Sprouts, Grains, Non-Hybrid Seed, Mills, Dairy? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread


My name is Gary Hansen; I'm a Nebraska farmer. My family and I sell preparation foods and other goods at very low prices from our farm. We have wheat, corn, soybeans and whole-oat groats (which you can roll for fresh oatmeal) and we ship in 72 hours with economical truck freight. Our grain is dried to 10% moisture and is extraordinarily clean; many of our customers have told us it's the cleanest grain they've ever seen. FREE diatomaceous earth is shipped with every grain order.

We also have the Country Living Mill in stock at $385 (including the corn/bean auger) + $15 shipping and sell the Family Grain Mill at $117 + $10 shipping (they're drop-shipped and arrive with customers in about 10 days now.) Shipping for the CL mill is free with a grain purchase.

We've recently added 25lb. packs of 8 sprouting seeds for $112, packed in a 5 gallon, gasketed, screw-top bucket. There's a component-seed price table so you can compare values. The same seeds are available elsewhere for 2-3 times more money because sprouts are widely priced on a "what the market will bear" basis. As the breakdown table shows, we don't include filler seeds like wheat or soybeans that you can buy very inexpensively separately. We believe this is a great product because sprouts provide the essential fresh-vegetable nutrients, all year long, that dry-stored foods lack -- and they do it quickly and indoors.

We've also added cases of dried cheddar cheese and dried butter flavor granules. Shipping on those is free with grain orders. These products are packaged in foil packets for easy storage and long life. They're very easy to use, requiring only warm water to reconstitute... or they can be sprinkled onto moist foods (or popcorn!) right from the packet.

The most recent addition to our product line is a 36,000-count non-hybrid garden seed pack. Like the sprouting seeds mentioned above, the garden seed assortment does not include wheat or soybeans which you can buy inexpensively from our bulk grain line. Our website has a complete breakdown on what's included, and the price is a very low $49.95. The approximate yield is 6 tons of vegetables!

All of our products come with a satisfaction guarantee, and we accept Visa, MC and Discover.

I hope you'll visit us at the link below. If you e-mail us you'll get a prompt reply (from a person, not an auto-responder) and we'll do everything humanly possible to help you in any way we can. We'll send our phone number when we reply.

Our site also has many very useful Y2K and general prep links and an FAQ primarily dealing with grains. Last but not least, we have links to oodles of recipes including the full text of the basic whole-wheat bread recipe from Christine Down's cookbook, _Cooking and Baking With Freshly Ground Grains_.

I hope you'll pay us a visit.

Thank you!!

P.S. We have some fun links for your kids at the bottom of our page. You might even get a chuckle yourself :-)

Hi Gary! Haven't seen you around in awhile. This forum just divided into 2 parts with emphasis on preparations in the second part. You might want to post your thread on the prep forum, too. Here is the address: 28Y2000%29%20Preparation%20Forum

-- Gayla (, July 06, 1999.

Gayla and Gary --- I've heard good things about Gary, but I will have to delete any thread on the prep forum from folks that are selling stuff directly.

So, please don't post it there.

If people want to privately recommend trustworthy suppliers on a relevant thread over at the prep forum and give a link, that is fine, of course.

Sorry! :-0

Thanks Big Dog for letting us know! We're all learning. :-)

-- Gayla (, July 06, 1999.

Gayla -- No big deal. We might even want to start a thread sometime over there to list-link to trusted suppliers (hey, go ahead right now, if you want, it's kind of a cool idea). But if I allow vendors to post pitches, we will compromise the integrity of the forum.

-- BigDog (, July 06, 1999.

Sorry for the faux pas; I read the posting guidelines and didn't see the prohibition so I thought I was okay. I'll refrain :-)
