    I just moved to a farm last year.

    I'm slowly getting farm animals and producing my own food. I currently have chickens and one produced a double yolk today!

    What are farmers like?

    I've never really met one. I was a little surprised that Chris Soules on the Bachelor is a farmer. Like, daauhhmn. I want me a farmer like that, who knows how to treat a woman right. I don't care where I live. I'm just so miserable with my abusive husband.

    I grew up as a military kid

    and even worked as an Air Force civilian for about 10 years. I always sort of knew that the military wasn't for me though and was more drawn to a lifestyle that was more down to earth. It's funny the way things work out. Several years ago I took an Air Force job in a...

    Sometimes being a farmer can be very hard emotionally... I am always given the Job of looking after and feeding the orphaned lambs. In a sense I become their mother. You try not to get too attached to the boys seen as they must, in the end, go to market but you still love them...

    I was married to a woman once,

    now I say I am married to a farm, and she is a jealous lover. In the city, it is easy to forget the cost of food. It comes from the grocery store, or the farmers market from those fortunate enough to have acquired land close to the city and a spot in the crowded market. But...

    Hobby Farming

    I grew up on a dairy and beef farm but don't drink milk or eat meat:) not exactly supporting my heritage am I! Growing up on the farm was great for me. I feel peace out in the open spaces and have a real affinity for animals. Ours were well cared for and had a good life even...

    So stressed out over it all.

    I like doing the actual farming and take pride in it. But the bills are so astronomical it's causing me to have a nervous breakdown. I know it sounds bad, but I don't want my kids to follow in their dad's footsteps and farm :( so sad right now
