When I think of the hard work and problems they go through it doesn’t seem like the happiest of occupations. Satisfying, frustrating, disappointing yes but happy? Making a living off farming to me would be one of the hardest things to do both mentally and physically. I lived on a hobby farm and that was hard work. Although I wasn’t really “farming” I had animals! Which was the reason I moved to a farm in the first place. I had horses, goats, one sheep, a pig, chickens, dogs and cats. Bliss! And as I was (and still am) a vegetarian they were all pets.
I was a happy farmer.
