American farmers are getting hit by higher costs of fertilizer, gas and everything else.
Now, they’re warning America that the result will be rising food prices.
Farmer Ben Neal talked to Laura Ingraham about how he’s “getting hit on every front on every expense possible” (transcript of highlights below):
Here’s a transcript of the highlights:
“We’re getting hit on every front on every expense possible, from fertilizer to fuel to labor insurance, everything in between — our packing supplies. So we operate a small farm in Oklahoma. One hundred percent of our sales are farm-to-home delivery. And so we are driving across the state. And you know, the fuel costs are really painful for us … I would say our increases are roughly 25 to 30 percent, and I think that that will soon be reflected at the grocery stores. On top of what we’re already seeing, these fertilizer price increases haven’t really affected the grocery store prices yet. They will start coming this summer.”
Farmer Ben Riensche recently told Tucker Carlson:
“Soaring fertilizer prices are likely to bring spiked food prices. If you’re upset that gas is up a dollar or two a gallon, wait until your grocery bill is up $1,000.00 a month, and it might not just manifest itself in terms of price. It could be quantity as well. Empty Shelf syndrome may be starting.”
One way to prepare for coming food price increases is to stock up on long-lasting food.
A lot of people are already doing it.
According to one report, Costco has sold out of some of its emergency foods:
Looks like Costco has sold out almost all their emergency food, especially the Mountain house branded items. Everything online goes to an error page. Even the $2200-$6000 pallets are sold out. Cold War 2.0 panic is here. pic.twitter.com/9PK6gH8k0s

My friends at MyPatriotSupply.com still have emergency food on hand (ordering through this link and the links below benefits We Love Trump).
Their food kits are packed with 2,000-plus calories a day and last a long time — some for as long as 30 years.
People have said about MyPatriotSupply:
— “I order Ready Hour meals from My Patriot Supply a couple of times a year, whenever I have the extra funds. The delivery is always fast and the packaging is consistently strong and easily storable. It gives me peace of mind to know I have months of dry food stored for an emergency.”
— “Best calories per dollar deal — Over 300 calories per dollar is amazing.”
— “I’m on a very low disability income. I wanted piece of mind knowing I have food in emergency. Whole I do have have some stuff I bought in store, knowing this will last fir 25 years is well worth it. And the different types of food sent, like strawberry cream of wheat cereal, and Mac and cheese. All what I like. I received my order in just a few days.”
