Although farming has always been working from home, I am referring to other types of activities today. As sad as it sounds, many small farmers quickly realize that they just can't live on the money generated from a small farm. This leads to a few hard choices. 

  1. Get a job off the farm. This can be for either just one of you or both. This of course leads to problems as farms need managing and tending. 
  2.   Live frugally. I think most farmers live more frugally than most people on the planet! I know I do, I can make a chicken last a week. Tightening the belt is necessary as spending money foolishly is never a good idea

  3. Work from home but not necessarily with farming activities. The internet has made the marketplace for homeworkers much easier. If you live in the States your options are better as there are more companies who want US based workers. Sometimes this can be frustrating if you aren't in the USA. This is something I have encountered. Although I am American, and a native English speaker, many sites won't allow me to enroll in their program because I live in Brazil. Therefore although my options are more limited, there are still sites I work for.

My family has a beautiful farm in front of our house. My uncle is one of our farmers in our beautiful farm. I remember my professor sharing the life of a farmer. The farmer is one of the most useful people off since the beginning of civilization. We all depend upon agriculture to meet our requirement of food. We get our food because the farmer grows crops and carries the agricultural activities. The life of a farmer is very tough. He works very hard day and night in all seasons. During the summer, he works under the heat of the sun.
