Those men and women who have managed to survive this long ought to be congratulated. Because in many places in the world, and certainly across every state of the USA, being a rural farmer is no walk in the park. Even being one of those industrial sized large-scale farmers has its ups and downs. But it is the single property owners, whether managing large tracts of inherited land, or even just a small plot of ground on a recently purchased smallholding, that bear the brunt of all the challenges that are part and parcel of the farmer’s daily life.
Isolated and far, far away from the nearest town, and indeed, the nearest law enforcement agency, the rural and isolated farmer must be on the alert at all times. Fortunately, the American farmer enjoys one proud heritage that many struggling farmers from around the world, especially those in third world countries, do not enjoy. He is able to legally own his own firearms and rifles. And as a member of the NRA, he certainly knows how to handle them.
But of course, it is not nearly enough for him and his farm workers. Securing large tracts of land with perimeter fencing is always hard work and there are logistical nightmares too. Speaking of the night, patrolling acreage and farming stock is difficult at night and in the earliest hours of the morning. Visibility is poor and keeping one hand on the tiller, or steering wheel, while opening a rickety gate is hard enough.
As reward for providing the world with its food, the rural farmer now has the use of this rural wonder. These are your rural gate openers, and they are technological wonders too. All the farmer needs to do is gently bump the gate and it opens.
