Let's assume two different people ask this very same question. Easy Cellar Review Person A - This family is made up of three people Father, Mother, Child and one dog. The Father is in his early thirties and healthy. The mother is in her late twenties and healthy. The child is 6 years old and healthy. The dog is happy.
Person B - This family is made up of nine people Father, Mother, Five Children and Two Grandparents and two cats. The Father and Mother are in their mid-forties and are of average health, the five children span the age ranges from 23 yrs to 10 yrs in age and the Grandparents are in their late sixties. The cats are NOT happy.
Now, from glancing at this breakdown you might say "This is easy. Person B certainly needs a LOT more food stored than Person A.", but you might also be wrong. Person B has a different situation than Person A, not only in family makeup, but also in geographic location and skill set. Person B lives on a small homestead and has a large organic garden that provides nearly 100% of the family's food intake. The surrounding area is flush with wildlife and fresh water sources.
All five of the children work the garden and the older children provide assistance with hunting, fishing and beekeeping. The family keeps a small amount of livestock as well to provide them with goat cheese and milk. Since their garden over-produces they sell produce at the Farmer's Market and trade with other local families for items they don't make themselves.
