- Layaway program
This company has carved out a unique niche for itself; it is a little different from most other emergency preparedness companies that we have seen. My Patriot Supply distinguishes itself on a unique variety and fair prices. Some of the goods they carry include:
- A wide variety of heirloom seeds, including a survival seed vault
- Homesteading and self reliance supplies, such as home canning equipment and kitchen tools for processing a gardenful of produce
- Survival gear
- Emergency lighting, power, and fire starting equipment
- Emergency survival food
- Water filtration
We also like that this company offers a layaway program as a no-interest route to budget for higher cost purchases, and the streamlined, easy to use website.
- Food options
If you are looking for a wide variety of freeze dried foods, or staple storage foods like beans and grains, My Patriot Supply is not a great option for these needs. The food storage section focuses heavily on full kits containing primarily dehydrated main dishes, which is fine is that is what you are after. Many food storage shoppers may be looking for greater selection, though.
My Patriot Supply is pretty thin on informative materials; they have a blog with a few articles, and they offer useful books for sale, but they do not have a major focus on information. The blog is a bit difficult to navigate, with unclear labels and no topical archive. You will not find any printables, lists, or planners to help in your preparedness journey.
The store is where My Patriot Supply really shines. They have an unusual selection of emergency supplies that most other preparedness stores don’t have, with a specialty in homesteading, self reliance, and heirloom seeds. There is a wonderful array of seeds, including vegetable, fruit, herb, and wildflower seeds. There is also a survival seed vault, intended to store in case of a long term disaster. All seeds are heirloom varieties, meaning that the seeds can be harvested from year to year and will sprout true, unlike hybrid varieties.
This company does stock emergency survival food, but not in the variety that you might find elsewhere. Mainly dehydrated rather than freeze dried, their food comes in supply kits ranging from 72 hours all the way up to one year. There is no a la carte option for creating your own storage plan, and the food is primarily dehydrated pre-made main dish items like chicken alfredo, soups, etc. There is also a supplementary fruit and vegetable kit which contains freeze dried basic items.
Connecting with the Community
This company does not have any local community connections. They are present on Facebook, but not overly active.
How is the Website?
We found the website to be very user-friendly, easy to navigate, and simple to quickly see everything the company has to offer. This is a definite strength; users will not waste any time trying to find what they are looking for.

My Patriot Supply offers two interesting perks. First, they have an affiliate program, which allows anyone with a blog or active social media presence to make a percentage by posting ads and directing traffic to the store site. The second is a layaway program that allows shoppers to put expensive purchases on hold, and spread interest-free payments out over a manageable period of time.
