We bought a fridge size upright one from Sears- and got rid of the chest one that came with the house- I'm a paranoid mother, I thought someone would sleepwalk downstairs and lock themselves in- I love my upright! I rotate the same way I do in the pantry, I move everything up before I go to the store, in the freezer and pantry, and feed food in from the bottom, try to use things from the top down. We use it for bread, sometimes even milk, butter, veggies, plus two emergency meals for if things are too hectic- frozen pizza and lasgana! Sometimes if there's a good sale, I'll but 10 loaves of bread, or 10 bags of frozen veg- I know I always have room. I also keep flour, cornmeal, and frozen tortillas in the freezer.
I think you would love having a bigger, especially being rural.
