What have you been doing to get farm ready?

PDC and backyard gardening

Why are you passionate about farming?

It’s great to grow your own food and raise your own meat and supplies/produce in organic and ethical ways. It connects you back with nature and makes you value things more.

Best days of being a farmer:

Have a small plot of land like 2-3 acres that grows fruit and veg using permaculture principles. Have chickens and some goats to milk and make cheese. Have a small house or tiny house for very simple but energy efficient accomodation. Waking up, keeping things running and observe and interact would give me fullfillment and energy. I don’t want to become rich just sustain a comfortable life with a roof over my head, good food to eat and beautiful likeminded people in my life.
