My husband and I live on 200 acres in Illinois. We raise beef cattle, hair sheep, meat goats, gourds, hay and row crops. We have a female black lab and a couple of pet cats.
My husband has lived a farm life since early grade school and has lived in out home on the farm for almost 30 years.
(We sometimes joke about him never having had a "real job")
He's a very hard worker and a devoted steward of the land he, his brother and their father has farmed for years.
A few years ago, I had the privilege of quiting my "real job" to be a full time farm wife....complete with duties that I love. Some days I cook and deliver two meals to wherever they are. Sometimes I am driver of a huge JD 4WD!

I live in: United States

My zone is: Illinois
