Estate fencing is on the rise in the off-grid community. You’re using an off-grid power source: solar, wind, hydro or your own generator. You’ve removed yourself from the grid. It’s an important achievement and a win for self-sustaining living. But what about security?
When I was growing up, we never locked our doors. I remember my grandparents leaving the front door open on sultry southern summer evenings. The keys were left in vehicles and neighbors watched out for one another. Those days are gone. Security on the homestead is a vital part of our survival in this world.
