I’m very conscious that we’re a little bit removed from things here at the farm. Removed from neighbours. Removed from the road (which I’m standing at in the photo below).
Someone can be at our house–for example a burglar carrying away our TV–and no one would know.
When we first moved to the farm, we heard from a few people that most houses in the area had been broken into at one time or another.
We were also very surprised by how many people drove up the driveway, just inviting themselves onto our property.
The biggest step we took to make sure the farm is secure is adding a gate at the bottom of the driveway.
It’s a low tech solution, and someone can easily walk around the gate and up the driveway, but they’re going to have to work pretty hard to carry our TV away.
How do you handle security at your house?
