Depends if i have to muck poop! No to poop! But orchids would work! A gentleman farmer maybe. No milking anything!

Just because you enjoy FarmVille does NOT mean you'd enjoy being a farmer

I have such an extensive garden that it seems I'm trying to go back to farming (where I grew up). I'd be happy as a farmer. Probably not as wealthy though.

I probably could be, but I'd rather not.

I live on a farm with all the luxuries of modern life. Being a country girl doesn't mean no technology. I have Internet, my phone, HDTV, up to date electronics.

As long as I have Internet and all of my various computers, with just enough free time to use them.

There should be an urban/rural filter. That would be really interesting

thank you Nebraska for not falling into the stereotypes... if I ever worked on a farm I would slowly cry myself to sleep each night

Don't do it, it's a trap. There is no peace when you have to get up at 5 to feed all of the animals, drive thirty minutes to see your friends, and the mules and roosters don't sleep until like 4 A.M.

We have a registered black angus farm. It's peaceful living on a farm & I don't have rude neighbors.

I have considered this. If I had a mate it would be a peaceful lifestyle.

Do you really want to know? I'm working on a farm right now and our machine broke down. So much for getting done early today! Farming ruins my summer!

I used to think I could be a farmer but its very isolated and no coffee shops..... although now you could have your own espresso machine! Maybe I could!

So if the majority of us would be happy. Why is it that farming is a dying career?It's going to become a problem in a few years I believe. m.huffpost.com/us/entry/1250058

Oh that's right, most of us want easy money careers and don't give a rats ass where our food comes from, as long as is there every time on the same shelves at the groceries. Farmers have a respectable life we could all learn a thing or two from.

I wouldn't marry a cartoon but you probably can now so you can get free healthcare and federal benefits.

I would be happy about the house I lived in and being with all the animals and a farm party every Saturday night . But definitely not doing all the labor work only to have GMO companies take over it all.

Just had this conversation other day. Was speculating about what it would be like to be expected to follow in family business like many farm families do.
