“This Rediscovered Ancient Investment of Our
Great-Grandparents Could be Worth More Than Gold in a
By Martin Fernway1
In this piece: Discover an ‘anti-crisis stockpile’ used by
our Great-Grandparents to make it through events like
The Great Depression.
Today, this stockpile makes a comeback – with a
modern twist. And according to some, it
is a more valuable investment than gold in a

Millions of Americans will face
extreme inflation and food supply shortages
for the next 4 years.
Among those millions are two similar-looking middle-class
families who are preparing differently for the oncoming hard
So different in fact, that by 1933, one family had so much
food they’re donating part of it to the soup kitchens… while
the other family had to stand in line for said soup kitchens
with rumbling stomachs.
Let’s take a look at these two families:
Our “Old Ways Family” prefers traditional
methods over modern ones. They might be a bit slower to
adapt, but they believe the old saying “If it ain’t broke,
don’t fix it.” To prepare for the economic crisis,
they invested long ago in an ‘anti-crisis’ stockpile
our ancestors used.
The “Progressive Family” likes the luxury
and consumerism of the Roaring Twenties.They believe “money can buy anything,”
like security from food shortages and protection from the

While the Old Ways Family’s anti-crisis
stockpile ensures they’ll never go hungry.
Now I’m about to reveal their method in a minute,
because it’s still relevant today… maybe even more so.
The story of our two families is set in The Great
Depression, a time which many believe may return.2
Because as the old saying goes:
history tends to repeat itself.
Today, gold is still the recommended “for
emergencies”-investment to make.
But how much is gold worth in an actual

years. But I do know we'll never be the same.

their hand on the button. Or at least that’s what our panicky news media is telling us. Remember
when you practiced hiding under your desk at school as
There have even been times in the last couple of
years when no amount of gold stored in your bank – or
your basement – changed how hard it was to leave the
house and go get food from the store.

their dollars into gold isn’t the end all be

Here’s what our Old Ways Family went
Because they knew our ancestors dealt with crises on the
Even their winters were “mini-crises,” which they
prepared for in November, before fresh food became very
short in supply.8
Which reminds me of our grocery store shelves.
But major crises were a recurring part of their life as
well, like plagues, droughts, famine…
One event that lives in recent memory – seeing as there are
people alive today who lived through it – is the Great
A time when people who relied on the food supply chain
suffered and those who followed “the old ways” thrived.
And that’s in part because of
their emergency stockpiles:
Back in the 1920s and 30s, Americans were already hooked
on packaged food they bought at the up-and-coming grocery
This meant you didn’t need to stock food at home anymore
– these stores did it for you.
But when the Great Depression hit, the shelves ran empty,
and this system collapsed.
Only the families who maintained the old ways of storing
food at home kept their chins up, thanks to food
preservation techniques like dehydrating, canning,
pickling, and more.9
Preppers and survivalists still use these old methods to
preserve their food, but it’s not without its downsides, as
I’ll reveal below.
Today, FEMA advises that you have AT LEAST 3 days’ worth of
nonperishable food at hand.10
So, is it time to break out the old canning machine,
dehydrators, and bazillion glass jars to store your produce
Because there’s a far simpler way to create a food

Then you may need 3 months’ of emergency food per person
Why 3 months? Because having a minimum food supply to
eat over 90 days will cover you for an entire season,
just like our ancestors covered themselves for the
winter. Keep in mind that someone will want or need more
calories or nutrients each day during their 3
And what kind of food?
More than just rice and beans.
And it’s not only about the nutrients – it’s also about
keeping up morale.
Eating the same things day in and out won’t do wonders
for your mental health, especially if it’s already
strained because of an ongoing crisis.
Instead, imagine starting your day with these foods:

These dishes taste almost as delicious as homemade
cooked meals from fresh ingredients.
A single kit has enough delicious calories to feed
one person in a survival situation for three months.
During this time, some people may want or need more
calories or nutrients per day.
These calories come from premium ingredients, like whole grains
and high-quality produce our ancestors may have used.
But unlike those in previous generations, 4Patriots
doesn’t store them in cumbersome glass jars.
Instead, they use low-heat dehydration to lock in
freshness and flavor, then store it all into space-age
pouches made of Mylar (The same material NASA
uses!)12. All to protect against air, light and moisture.
This means that if you rip one of these bags open
after 25 years, they’re still perfectly fine to
To protect the bags even more, 4Patriots ships them
in two low-profile totes that help protect the food
from water, or even prying eyes.
Unlike the survival
food buckets you’ll find at some big box stores, our
discreet totes are only 7 inches tall. That means you
can easily slide these discreet totes in low spaces
without advertising the contents to hungry, unwelcome
So who is 4Patriots?
4Patriots is a family-run operation that helps
Americans to prepare and donates part of its proceeds
charities that support our nation’s brave veterans
and their families.
Meaning that anyone who gets their food security from
4Patriots doesn’t just invest in their own future… but
also in US veterans and their families who have done our
Worth More Than GOLD in a Crisis
With an average 4.8-star rating and over 2,400 glowing
reviews, people who bought 4Patriots’ 3-Month Emergency
Food Kit had great things to say about it.13
And these happy customers had something to say about its
value compared to gold:
Inflation is Real
“Get these products while you can. It’s
worth more than gold. Pretty soon a loaf of
bread will cost $20. Be prepared.”
“I feel much better having this food. It
may be more valuable than gold in times of
trouble. I have yet to try any of it since
it arrived but did inspect contents and
found it was well organized.”

This 3-Month Survival Food Is Extremely Popular – Stocks
In 2020 with everything that happened that year, 4Patriots
sold 10,026 3-Month Food Kits in days.15
Even their warehouse team was in shock with how popular
these kits were.
It just took a couple of days to sell out completely.
Now, with 2022 having even more uncertainties, it’s clear
things aren’t moving in the right direction. If you ask us,

These kits are designed to provide energy and nutrients
for one person in stressful emergency situations. They are
not intended to be complete caloric replacements during
“normal” times. You’ll want to make sure you have
additional food items on hand so that in an extended
emergency you’ll be able to supplement your daily calorie
intake, nutrients and variety with additional food items
available on this site, food you have stockpiled in your
pantry, fresh produce from your garden, etc. An average
adult needs approx. 2,000 calories per day to meet their
energy needs. This kit provides approximately 1,505
calories per day for one person. This may not be enough for optimal nutrition, especially for an extended period of time, or if you’re
pregnant, a child, elderly, or have other health
conditions. In order to supplement your daily calorie intake,
to add variety or to provide food for more than one
person, we offer a number of supplemental products,
including food bars, meat packs, fruit and vegetable
packs, etc. By combining our kits with these additional
products, you can ensure that you have 2,000 calories per
day available to you during emergency situations. We’d be
