Best days of being a farmer:

My ideal farm has vistas of maintains and beaches. Cows in the the back paddock and pigs further back and chickens in the front. Chicken tractor farming eggs and meat. My day should start early 4am is the usual time for me, watch the sunrise as the i feed the young ones. Ride out to check the troughs and fences and take in the splendid views. Open the farm gate to the public straight after breakfast and begin the day of promoting and producing farm fresh products for the plate. Local chefs will visit before they open for lunch and choose the best on offer. The best days will continue in the same way until the last gate is shut amd everyones bedded in for the night
