Ok I need to vent.. Why is it that our society thinks that if you wish to be a farmer that you are lazy and unrealistic? I typically get this from friends and family: "So what are you going to do when you graduate college?" "Build a small cabin on our property and farm". "No I mean what kind of job are you going to have?" As if farming is not a job. Sheesh. I expect it from the city folk but I see it occuring more and more on these forums. I know money in farming isn't what it once was. But if you have everything free and clear (except for taxes of course). I would think you could do it. Hard work and not putting all you eggs in one basket of course. To me even the hardest times would seam simpler to deal with than working for some company that isn't worried about their employees, only about their bottom line. Whats your thoughts?
