Moving to the Country: Agriculture Blogs for New Farmers

Welcome! My name is Sarah, and I am a farmer. Ten years ago, I couldn't have imagined making that statement, but, wow, things changed quickly. I met my husband five years ago. We fell in love at first sight, and right away, we started talking about moving to the country. He was a graphic designer, and I worked as a writer, so as long as we had internet connection, we could keep our day jobs and also start a farm. Within two years, he was able to quit his job and focus exclusively on on the farm, and I pulled back from writing as well. The experience has been amazing. I decided to start a blog for others who are thinking about diving into the world of farming, and I hope you like it. Cheers! Sarah.
