If you go from city living to land lover living, the first thing you’ll notice is how quiet it is in the country. You can’t hear the cars on the interstate, or the garbage truck that comes at 6 a.m. You don’t have to worry about neighbors playing their music too loud or cars honking right outside your window. The peace of country living isn’t just about what you can’t hear, it’s also about what you can hear – the rain hitting your roof at night, the birds singing in the morning, and the cows mooing out in the pasture. These are the kinds of sounds that play a natural soundtrack to a peaceful, country life. It also means you can crank your music as loud as you want and honk at your livestock if they get in your car’s way.
Just because you live in the country, doesn’t mean you don’t know your neighbors. Communities in the country tend to be close-knit. People still rely on each other, even more so than people in the city, and that’s partly because stores are many times miles and miles away. Neighbors still get those calls for a little bit of flour or a couple of eggs, and they don’t mind one bit because they know their neighbors will do the same for them.
When you live in the country, you don’t have to worry about smog or pollution. There’s hardly any traffic at all unless you count those times you get stuck behind a slow-moving tractor on the road or that time all of your cows got out. Living in the country means choosing a slower pace of life. This doesn’t mean that country folks don’t have a lot to do. It just means they don’t let the hustle and bustle of the rat race bog them down. Country folks relax a little more and aren’t afraid to slow down.
In the country, you can truly live off the land. You can grow crops or a simple garden, as well as, raise chickens and other types of livestock that aren’t welcome in the city. The best kinds of meals are those that go straight from your farm and onto your table.
