Who Are We?
We are a group of prepping enthusiasts who love spending more time in the wild than in the convenience of cities and development. It is not that we hate cities, but we feel closer to our hearts when we can survive in the wild using minimal resources. We built BasicFoodPrepper.com to share our insights and suggestions to the upcoming prepping enthusiasts in the world. We also wanted to prove that prepping and survivalism are not challenging if you have the right tools and a passionate mindset.
Of course, we do not want anyone to go through an SHTF situation ever in their life. However, we believe it is to stay safe rather than sorry in many aspects. Therefore, we want everyone to stay ready for potential issues worldwide, including pandemics, floods, forest fires, military invasion, or something else. By learning how to do prepping, you are making yourself ready for these events. Whether these events would happen is another question.
Nevertheless, at BasicFoodPrepper.com, our mission is to recommend the right set of products and ideas to help you in the long run. We also make sure that the prepping equipment we recommend is top quality and gets the job done. So, our tutorials would talk about the factors you should consider while choosing the survivalist gear for your little or extensive hiking experience. Of course, we also hands-on test products and feature them in our reviews.
How Do We Review?
We understand that we cannot give you a half-baked opinion on prepping food and tools. Therefore, we have developed a proper system that allows us to review each product that ends up in our filtered list. As you may have noticed, our team consists of people who participate in survivalist adventures more often than ordinary people. Therefore, it is easy for them to test out individual projects before recommending the same to our readers.
Since it has been the norm from the beginning, no product makes it to our reviews page without a hands-on certification from our review team. At the same time, to make sure that our thoughts are not biased, we take information from multiple sources: real-life user reviews and other hands-on reviews. Our research team also checks the after-sales service from the brands before we recommend their products to our readers.
In short, every product you see recommended on BasicFoodPrepper.com would have gone through an extensive testing process on paper and practice alike. This two-phased structure allows us to control the quality of what our readers find on our blog.
