The reality of deep rural life for people in Jamaica who live off the grid


It's the way of life for folks who prefer to live off the land and farm what they eat. For many, this simple lifestyle is just not acceptable and therefore live each day in anxiety, not knowing how the bills will be paid at the month's end, but it's done with hope that effort will bring prosperity.

These people who choose to, or maybe just had no choice but to live the life they were born into, are not alone. It's quite common across the globe, even in major developed countries. There are people who were born in the deep backwoods of West Virginia mountains who have never been on a plane and possibly never even left the state.
