Home Forums General Discussion Off-grid in the UK Re: Off-grid in the UK


I really enjoyed reading this so thanks for sharing this Marc. We have a couple of acres in Norfolk, and we’re kind of playing at the hybrid lifestyle of early semi-retirement and ‘earning’ a wage in the conventional sense for a couple of days a week. We do grow our own vegetables, we have some chickens and our next couple of pigs turn up tomorrow, so we’re having a go.

Your comment about the markets resonated with me, as I’ve done boot sales before and you’re right, earning thirty to forty pounds at a boot sale or similar would be a pittance to my friends but to my partner and I, it’s enough to buy some groceries or food for the dogs as an example.

I look forward to reading about your progress. Good luck.
