Hear It From Our Clients

This store has items for outdoor survival and camping that cannot be found anywhere else. I mill my own flour so this is my go to place because of their large selection of grain. They also have a lot of kitchen gadgets and other food related products that are really hard to come by. I absolutely love The Preparedness Store!

Adventures With Jorde

Rusty and his crew were very friendly imparting their knowledge to anyone that comes in the door. Free classes and willingness to answer any questions with great detail made purchasing from his store a no-brainer!
