After watching an episode of the anime Sliver Spoon, I noticed that farm life is hard work but it can also be rewarding. That said would anyone do what Hachiken did? Far as going to some school where they teach you how to be a farmer and other things pertaining to it. How well do you think you would do there? Does anyone actually live on a farm? What is it like? Did you use to live on a farm when you were younger?

Tell me your thoughts. Does Hachiken have it hard or easy? What do you think?

My Turn:

Personally, I wouldn't be able to handle being on a farm. I think it's cool what the farmers do for us and stuff. Yet I can never do what they do.


If you never heard of the anime Sliver Spoon, check it out when you get the chance.

Edit: I hope it gets another season.

If I was able to, I definitely wouldn't be against it. It builds your body and gives you a good work out. Plus, free tan.

Not all of them look like the country guys in those romance flicks.

If I had to. I'm not the fittest but work will fix that eventually.


I wouldn't choose it though. No.

Definitely not the life for me.

No, I would not live or work for a living on a farm.

There are a lot of farms around where I live and I've visited them plenty of times, like when my friends who do work on farms had chores and I tagged along. Sometime I helped them with easy tasks, like feeding calves. That was only a few times though and I definitely would not make it a full time occupation.

1. Too many allergies: There are usually a lot of outdoor cats on farms, which sucks if you're allergic to them. However, there's also stuff like hay in the air, which a lot of people are allergic to. My sinuses were constantly congested when I visited farms.

2. If you're a farmer, you have to wake up super early: Farmers often wake up at 3 or 4 or some ridiculous hour like that to start chores. Harvest time is especially busy. Farming is a difficult career.

3. Not especially clean: Poop doesn't smell all that great, you know. Make sure you wear shoes you don't care about lol.

On a side note: You're not necessarily going to be fit if you're a farmer. A lot of farm work relies on machines now. There are plenty of fat farmers.

Farmers are resource managers. Whether their farm is small or big, they have to develop their products, work within their environments, market to an industry, manage production and distribution, and protect their assets just like any big business. Weather extremities add another level of difficulty, as do complicated regulations. Most farmers I've ever known really care about their land, livestock/produce, and the people who work for them. If they didn't, they'd be out of business or bought-out by a conglomerate that couldn't care less.

I'd work on a farm. There's always a job to be done. No fear outside the comfort zone. And I'd be supporting a farmer's family.

I would. I grew up in a farm like setting.

My parents lived about 10 miles outside of the nearest town. They've had horses, cows, chickens, lambs, pigs, and goats. Not all at the same time, but they've raised them nonetheless. Nowadays they have one cow and a few chickens.

I need my internet. I've become completely addicted to it and going off it would give me withdrawals.

Seriously though I went to school specifically so I wouldn't have to work outside or on a farm. I like my spoiled 1st world life and my air conditioning.

Plus you are always in great shape if you play an active role on the farm.
