Fence Only What You Can Afford (Farm Tip 28)

We remember a Manila couple who got four hectares in Batangas as their share of their inheritance. But their excitement was short-lived. They had read that the farm should be fenced before they plant anything, otherwise stray animals will eat whatever they plant.

They were downhearted because they couldn’t afford to fence the four hectares. They had computed that they will have to spend P1 million to fence the whole area. They said they had only a small saving in the bank. maybe just enough to put up a modest farm house and an ordinary water pump. They certainly could not afford the high cost of fencing their property with concrete.


We suggested to them a doable option. They should fence only half a hectare which they could plant with their favorite fruit trees and vegetables. And we suggested a very affordable fence to keep out stray chickens and other animals. We told them to use fishnet to fence the half-hectare which they are going to cultivate initially.


They were so happy about our suggestion. The fishnet fence only cost them not more than P5,000. And for that they thanked us profusely.
