Grow most of my own fruits, vegetables and other food. Raise chickens and turkeys for eggs and meat. When I am older I really just want to live in the country like that
Well that sounds like somewhat of a rural farmer. That would be great! If you have your own organic livestock and vegetation in your backyard :) You could sell or give some to your neighbors. If we all grew food in our backyards we could prevent a food shortage that will most likely happen in 50 years.
I've wanted that sort of lifestyle for some time... it just seems unattainable because of money. Ido plan to move to the country after finish university or after I get married or move out. But no way, it might not be as common of a dream but it is in no way weird.
I would love to have sort of a commune lifestyle, growing crops and sharing them with my neighbors and what i cant grow they do and we all just live off our hard work... i just think having the funds to start it might be difficult
It isn't crazy at all. I want to do the same thing. After I finish my last two years of college, I either want to live in a tent and travel on foot to various places, or move to France or England and see what happens there.
You might include "co-housing" in that search, too. It is a much broader term, but it includes what you're describing..
You should look into ecovillages. They are the modern equivalent to the communes of the '60's.
It's fine......Different strokes for different folks...
