Out Building Storage

Can I store my food supply in a out building? (Wooden building.)


Hi Letitia,

I'm guessing that living in NC where temperatures vary a lot that storing food supplies in an out building would only be advisable if it is air conditioned (or heated if necessary).

There may also be the issue of bugs and critters getting into the food. I don't know about the construction of your out building so I'm, again, guessing that this could be a problem.

For the best information on how to keep food safe for long term storage, check out this page on our site: Safe Food Storage. And for storage conditions and shelf life, check out this page: Long Term Food Shelf Life.

Please feel free to ask more questions if I have not sufficiently answered yours.
