Emergency food prep: Stock up on manuka honey, a must-have survival food and barter item
By Zoey Sky // Mar 06, 2024

When finalizing your emergency preparedness plans, you should also spend time building your stockpile of survival supplies. It's also best to get a variety of bartering items so you can get more supplies as needed in a post-SHTF world.

If you're not sure what to stock up on, you can buy extra food supplies and versatile items like raw manuka honey, which offers several health benefits and has a long shelf life. (h/t to SurvivalFrog.com)

Tips for choosing the best barter items

Bartering refers to the act of trading goods or services in exchange for others without using money as payment. When the grid goes down, even your prepping stockpile may run out of certain items, which is why bartering is a crucial part of your preps.

Think of stocking items to barter as one way to shock-proof your SHTF plans. If you need essential supplies and you have other things to barter with, trade for items that you don't have in your stockpile.

If possible, try to stock up on items that you can easily make or produce so that you won't run out of them. If this isn't an option, you can also get items with the highest trade value, such as necessities that people can’t live without.

This includes essential bartering items such as:

  • Batteries
  • First aid supplies
  • Food
  • Grooming supplies
  • Lighters and matches
  • Medicine
  • Soap
  • Toilet paper
  • Toiletries
  • Water
  • Water filters and filtration tablets

However, all of these valued items, especially clean water and food, are also things that you may want to keep for your family. These items will quickly fly off the shelves after a large-scale disaster.

If you want to build a barter kit and stockpile certain items to trade, they need to last a long time. Small items like manuka honey are also great since you can store more of them. They are also easier to transport.

How to barter safely

Follow these tips to ensure a safe transaction when bartering post-SHTF:

Build strong relationships with people in your community

It's often safer to barter with people you trust. Try to barter locally and barter items that are relevant to where you live.

Find out what your neighbors need and what they can offer.

Be discreet

Don't announce that you have a survival stockpile in your garage. This is crucial if you have plans to barter with other people outside your community.

Change trade locations and learn about potential security risks

Bartering after a disaster means you should always be alert. Head to your location with a partner or a small group of people you trust so you have a backup plan in case things go south.

Barter different items

Don't trade the same thing every time unless you’re dealing with someone you know and trust.

This helps prevent you from becoming known for one specific item, which can end up in people targeting you for your supplies.

Get raw manuka honey for your stockpile

Aside from common items like food and toiletries, make sure to stock up on manuka honey, one of the world's most potent varieties of honey.

This shelf-stable survival food has many applications for daily use and emergencies, such as supporting the natural healing of minor cuts and burns, maintaining your natural energy levels, and even helping preserve food.

With its high levels of methylglyoxal (MGO), manuka honey has powerful immune-supporting properties and other health benefits. This means manuka honey is an ideal barter item when SHTF. (Related: Prepper medicine: How to make herbal cough syrup.)
