I love nature, i love breathing the fresh farm air and peaceful environment. But i prefer living in a city than living in a farm, i just wanted to have a rest house in a farm and visit there for a vacation and holidays. Living in a farm is nice and comfy but it is difficult reaching establishments which we need in our daily life like big stores where we can find our needs, hospital and school. How about you? would you prefer living in a farm that is far from a city?

Being able to breathe fresh air and live in a peaceful environment sounds SOO good, but the farm isn't somewhere I would like to end up. I am a very social person and love to be around people. I can't be stuck in an isolated area for the rest of my life with no one to talk to but cows and chickens, lol I just can't do it.

AHahaha, then bring your family along with you to live in a farm, build a place where you can invite friends to hang with. What you know,maybe your friend will like it more to have drink with you in your farm.

I've lived on a farm just about all my life and I still socialize with people. I've worked and I got to see people on a daily basis that way. I also go to church and I get to see my friends there. I eat out occasionally. I also do volunteer work and I go to walk at the mall occasionally. So, it's not exactly an isolated lifestyle.

I am interested in this lifestyle. I would love experiment with the Permaculture. I heard it's less expensive also. I would love to grow my own plants and food, and live adequately by myself. I wish I could grow my own organic food and not have the trouble of visiting the stores regularly where vegetables arrive pretty late and not fresh. I would love to have my own vegetable garden and also one Mango tree. Wow... Ha ha ha..

Talkin about vegetables and fruits. Well, its not problem in here. We live in a village inside the city, my father love to plant vegetables and fruits near our house, theres a vacant lot beside our house, so he decided to plant some vegies, lie eggplant,squash,string beans,tomatoes,and banana. All we need to buy is meat.

I am a nature lover and currently living in a city. So I was thinking why not go to my uncle's farm back in a village? I went there stayed in a cottage. It was fun all the day, there was a railroad nearby and it just got better until night arrived. It was truly a nightmare. All kinds of insects, somehow from somewhere managed to ruin my sleep! I was frustrated, stressed out. They keep ringing in your ears, mosquitoes bite like hell! It was horrible. Nature is difficult!

yeah, mosquitoes are freely flying everywhere at night, so you must have to screened all the windows and doors.

The clean air, the trees, the animals. Sure its all cozy, and no one is there to bother you, but I couldn't do it. Would be boring (for me), and if something happens you are really far from help.

hi redhotpogo, you are right, we couldn't ask for help if there are bad strangers tresspasing your home, that would be too difficult since no one could hear you.

I would very much enjoy living in the country side, outside the busy city centre, but not really in a farm. Yes, you are right. I agree with you. Living out in a farm, especially if it is far away from the main access roads, then it would be difficult getting the day to day necessities. Living in a country side near some main roads would be very pleasant, a very refeshing environment ! That would be more preferable than living in a noisy busy city centre.

That's what i like too, living in a countryside which is just accessible to roads that wouldn't get mud if it rained hard so you could just go out downtown and buy foods at easier way.

Farm life is what I have wanted. I want a peaceful and quiet surrounding. I don't like the city life. I hate the noise and smoke. I just want a house in the middle of a very big ranch and no neighbors.

That's nice, I could remember the twilight movie, edward is living in a forest with no neighbors, just tall trees, bushes and grasses.

I never really thought about it but it does sound like a wonderful experience away from cities. I've always wanted to live away from the city for a while, even if it's just for a few months. I like that peaceful environment too. All that quietness and being able to see the stars bright and shining in the nighttime sky without so many streetlights. I think it would be a really nice experience to live on a farm, even for just a month or two. I wouldn't know which one to choose though unless I got to really see what it'd be like to stay on a farm.

I never had experienced living in a farm too, but i do visit a lot of times in my inlaws farm, i could see the simplicity of people there, and they are just contented with what they have. But I could see how difficult it is for them to travel to downtown if it rained so hard that the road gets too muddy and we couldn't even walk with slippers and shoes, we had to walk with barefoot or else you'll get slipped and dunk on the muddy ground.

i like living in the farm, the pace of life is laid back, its quite peaceful its relaxing. i currently live in the city where i have to move fast, i have to meet deadline, living in the city sometimes is stressful. that is why i like living in the farm. it relaxes my nerves and i can think more clearly. buying things i need when i am in the farm is no problem with me, everything is there, but just not the same in the city where everything you need is in the department store or malls. and the most important is, living is the farm is less expensive and the food are healthy.

I think it's good to live in a farm when I'm old. But get medical care is a problem as well as living stuff. Yes have a vacation in a farm is always great. Maybe it's good to live in a suburb area around the city with good trafic by car.

I sometimes wonder if I could live totally on a farm. That would be such a simple life. You would have tons of fresh air and no outside noises to bother you. I would be able to live off the land like my ancestors did. I think I would be okay with it for a while before I would miss my old life.

Dear friend, I do like it very much provided it has that greenery and have great landscapes, fresh air a place too close to natural beauty. But I hope other features like hospitals, malls, shopping places, so on are may be there. Still a place one could rest well with too close to natural beauty would a nice farm.

yah, I agree, I love to live in a farm but not living for good, somehow I just wanted it to be a resthouse, somewhere I can go to whenever I get tired and stressed living in the city, somewhere I can go to whenever I wanted fresh air and to relax. Living in a farm is definitely relaxing but for a busy person like me I prefe living in the city, for it is more accessible to establishments and you can easily find job in the city.

Country living is the best. You have nothing to worry about, no neighbors. The only downside is its harder to get into town.

while i like the country and have a sister in law has a farm and my family have farm sat for periods of time (looking after the farm animals and whatnot) you have to drive everywhere you go if you want to do anything when you live out in the country.
