From online games to locally grown produce, family farms are very popular right now. Why are we all dreaming about living on the farm? Are the stresses of modern life and a tough economy making us wish for a simpler time? I may not live on a farm (not yet!), but I have a deep appreciation for small farms and the food they bring us. Oh, and wool too – because I love to know 🙂
I don’t know about you, but I often dream of living on a farm. Of course, it’s those busy, loud city afternoons that usually bring on these ideas! I can imagine growing my own food, watching a long sunset, and just enjoying some quiet tranquility. Oh, and having a good number of farm animals around! I know farming is hard work, but on some days it feels just right.
Sometimes nothing sounds better than having a little sunshine on your face and a little dirt on your hands. Not to mention the peace that comes with being surrounded by nature and animals. I don’t know if a farm cures what ails me, but I love the idea of it. For now, I keep working on my garden for my little daily nature fix!
My ideal farm is in New Zealand, no doubt about it. I have visited there a few times, and I have been taken with the quiet nights and starry skies. Plus, it’s one of the few places that you can still have a farm on the ocean. How cool is that? I could have a ton of sheep and wool, which would lead to lots of knitting.
If I couldn’t have a farm in New Zealand, then I’m also thinking that Vermont would be super relaxing. I have a little dream of owning a bookstore and cafe with homemade bread during the day and then retreating to my farm at night. I love how much snow Vermont gets, which means I would maybe be able to ski on my own farm.
