I grew up in a rural community and although my wife grew up in the city, she spent nearly every weekend of her youth on her grandparents’ farm. We both value rural life but didn’t fully understand how important it is to us until we had kids.
My friend farms a bit of land just outside our city. Before long, our family started heading out to ”The Farm” to hang out with his family. Although we live in the city, we have our little country getaway too and this means a lot to our family. Our kids, like us, will grow up with an appreciation for rural life.
I think it’s important to get out of the city once in a while. Do you?
