Farming dreams are a modern seduction. For city dwellers, the vision of making a living from the earth salves the psychic wounds of a day job, and acts as an antidote to urban malaise. If you could just get out there on the land, far from spreadsheets and stress, cubicles and car alarms, things would surely be different.
Eating overripe tomatoes, fresh from the vine and bursting with juice…tending to a flock of backyard feathery pets, cavorting with goats…This is the life you were meant to live. In your heart and soul, you’re a farmer.
