There are some general things you can do to keep your house and farm secure. You should:

  • invest in good locks for doors and windows
  • be aware of people or vehicles coming and going and report any suspicious activity to the police
  • keep a register with photographs and descriptions of animals, tools, equipment, vehicles and any other valuables

Farms can cover vast areas of land and it can be difficult to make them completely secure. However there are things you can do to make your farm as secure as possible:

  • check fencing, hedges and walls regularly - they should be robust and well maintained
  • restrict access to your yard with locked gates and security barriers - the fewer ways in the better
  • fit alarms to storage sheds and other buildings
  • consider installing a CCTV system to your yard, sheds and any other vulnerable areas
  • invest in good lighting for your farmyard

You can use two levels of lighting, a working level and a lower security level. Using low energy lighting will keep the cost down.
