We try to grow and can much of our food ourselves. However, there are certain items that we still buy and stock up because it is just not feasible for us to do ourselves. For such items, we made this simple can rack with slanted shelves which easily allows us to rotate our canned food stock. You place the new can on the top shelf. The can rolls back, falls to the lower shelf and rolls forward. There are similar items that you can buy. However, most are expensive, a poor design, or too big for our space. Why not build your own FIFO can storage solution that can fit your space perfectly?
- Summers Acres
We are a husband and wife duo with 5 kids, 4 boys and 1 girl. Our kids are growing up fast and only the 2 youngest are still in high school. Our journey began at our 1700 square feet home with just over 1 acre of land. God has blessed us greatly and we recently purchased and moved into our farmhouse and 14 acres of beautiful farm land in Ann’s hometown. Over the years God has compelled us to cultivate a simpler, less busy, and more joyful life. That is a process that takes time with one new learned skill or one simplification or change at a time. We love our chickens and goats and the benefits they provide us for a healthier more natural diet. We enjoy gardening to raise our own food, but also appreciate the therapeutic qualities of getting our hands in the dirt. We are not masters at any of this, but have learned a lot in our journey.
