My family may be moving on to a farm to intern for the summer season, about 7 months or so..

what are you're 'must haves' in terms of general supplements, (me, dh and ds 2yrs old)
must have 1st aid items

what could you not live without, and not obtain easily if needed???

Is there no way to internet ship to that location? I couldn't afford what we would need to stock up for seven months!

I also think this must vary a lot from family to family. Our top supplement would be coq10 and that wouldn't be relevant to others.

What do you normally take? I don't know why you do anything differently in terms of supplements?

We lived on a rural farm. I got almost any supp I needed because organic food and natural remedies was extremely popular with all the rural farm folks and we had an active co op buying club (UNFI). The only thing I had to buy on the internet was my liquid calcium magnesium because I like one certain brand. We are on the road now though and I have to have a full stock of stuff like that in case I can't find it anywhere. I would want to have comfrey, calendula, chammomile, ascorbic acid, various homeopathic remedies, back flower rescue remedy, goldenseal, slippery elm, herbs for kids echinacea golden root liquid, coconut oil, red raspberry leaf tea, raw fermented cod liver oil and a whole food multi vitamins.

This first thing that comes to mind for me is homeopathic apis melifica. That is a great remedy for many things, but bee and other stings in particular.
Sodium ascorbate is supposed to be really good for stings, too.

And, depending on the area, think about tick control. We live in the woods and have a "tick kit" with specially made tick removers, tweezers, alcohol swabs, and neosporin.

That's a really good idea. We had horrible mosquitoes so a natural bug repellent product, if you use one, is a good idea. A natural sunscreen product would also be good.
