You gotta love this!? On our way to the strawberry farm, I spotted this windmill, in the middle of a field. Off the cuff - I reckon this works perfectly LOL
A perfect example of how an old reliable system, which, if used / sited correctly, is more than sufficient for use today.
Who needs a power / petrol guzzling modern electric pump?
Now, where can I find a cheap windmill like this for the borehole we hope to install shortly...
"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003
