Discussing the causes of a collapse is definitely outside the scope of this thread and in general to be discouraged, as it’s pretty darn close to breaking the rules in general.

Due to the nature of this discussion, we have to continue it in private.

Due to the minerals in the soil, Florida is an ideal place for raising grass-fed beef. Because the cows are getting everything they need, the ranchers do not need to supplement their diets. But, because of all the new home construction, land to raise cattle is shrinking.

Even is we were somehow able to reclaim the land, how are we to process the beef? I don't know of any place nearby that does that.

This is outside my area of knowledge, but Florida is an excellent place for winter vegetables.

If push comes to shove, one would "process" the beef by themselves. eat the tasty bits and remove them from the less desirable items, like intestines.

I did a search on "wild plant foods Florida" - lots of references. Here's a starter list:

Van Atta, M., Living of the Land, B & B Reproductions, Inc, 1973.
Deuerling, R.J., Lantz, P.S., Florida's Incredible Wild Edibles, Florida Native Plant Society, 1993.
Rawlings, M. K. , Cross Creek Cookery,
Bowers, P. G., I Eat Weeds, Buttercup Press, 1996.
Bell, R. and Taylor, B.J. Florida Wildflowers and Roadside Plants, Laurel Hill Press, 1982
Colvin et. al. , Weeds of Southern Turfgrasses, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Serv.
Nelson Gil, The Trees of Florida, Pineapple Press Inc. Sarasota Fl., 1994, photo #46, pg. 172.

Depending upon wild native foods is not easy.Even well established hunter/gatherer groups throughout the world experienced tough times and hardships, but there is food out there for the gathering, and it can make a difference.

Even dandelions provide edible bits...

I "winter" in Why AZ, a very small town on the edge of a very large native nation. A native woman said "You look at the desert and see a hostile and barren place and I see Wal-mart."

Exactly!! That native nation has occupied that turf long enough to know it very well and use all its resources correctly.

Thank you for this recommendation. My first impression wasn't all that positive. However, I'm glad I looked into it anyway. There is a section that addresses the correlation between prepping and religion. And while I don't have a clear direction at this time, the fact that others in the same boat and I are talking about it is a good thing.

Glad it was helpful, Jeanette_Isabelle. There's some really nice folks over there, to be honest. Like anywhere there's a few nuts but lots of helpful people as well.
