The "Commons" is a little different if we look at Great Britain and the US. Cross cultural similarities is a hard thing to nail down sometimes.

I brought up the desire of wanting to live on a farm, growing our own food and maybe running a CSA and quitting my job. I also would love to home-school our child. My husband tells me that I just have a fantasy and that running farm is a lot of work and he does not want to do it. But I don't think it's a fantasy, i believe it's my calling in life! My husband suggested building a small green house in our backyard for me to grow things to get it out of my system basically, but I plan on signing up with a local Wwoof host to start learning how to run a farm on my days off.
I have been looking at farms for sale all across the US for the last few months and if we sold everything, we could buy a farm for cash in a less expensive part of the country. Then if we get solar panels installed and if the farm is on well water and septic tank, we could potentially become self sufficient and not stressed out about big living expenses as we get started.
Anyone else on here in the same predicament? spouse not on board? thinking it's a fantasy? Maybe grandparents and father mourning the farm life has made me subconsciously fantasize it? I'm trying to figure it all out!
