"An almost forgotten means of economic self-reliance is the home production of food. We are too accustomed to going to stores and purchasing what we need. By producing some of our food we reduce, to a great extent, the impact of inflation on our money. More importantly, we learn how to produce our own food and involve all family members in a beneficial project."
- Elder Ezra Taft Benson, Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, "Prepare for the Days of Tribulation," General Conference, Oct 1980
