Countryside life - based it is comfortable - really?




13 th September 2014

My life is city - based so I love visiting villages but I do it once or twice a year. This summer I spent a week at my cousin's farm in the north of Poland. It was a great time and the weather was perfect. Spending time in the countryside means observing birds on the farm. Maybe it is funny for some of you but I love hens and ducks - which are my favourite ones. But I am afraid of  geese - luckily my cousin doesn't have them.



At my cousins' farm.

My cousin has bred 200 hens and chicks and 100 ducks- fantastic. It is funny but I have touched the ducks daily it was incredible experience.

Late July - at my cousin's  near Torun.

Living on the farm only one week I have observed lifestyle here which has started at 6a.m till dusk about 10 p.m. in the summer. Running farm is a hard work and so demanding. You can't go for holiday or for a weekend. So In my point of view it is not comfortable lifestyle.

What about you?

THANKS FOR VISITING

  3. Those cloud patterns are stunning. And the bird with wings spread seems to enjoy a starring role at the farm.

  4. Is that blue plastic supposed to hold water for the ducks?

  5. Farming is really very hard work, and the stress! Either not enough rain, or too much rain, or a plant disease, etc. etc. My younger brother still farms, and he handles it beautifully.

  8. Wonderful footage of the ducks! Love the photos as well. I love chickens and ducks also, but haven't been around geese much. I know they can be a little mean (as can some roosters). We had a pet rooster once. :-) You are right about how hard it is to "get away" when you have so many animals to take care of. One would have to have family close by who could come and take over the chores if you went anywhere!

  12. I really enjoyed the last photos as well as the ones of the geese: there are so many of them! I live in the country. It can be a lot of work sometimes even though we don't have a full-fledged farm--just an acreage with a dog, 3 cats, 30+ chickens, and large gardens. I like it, but don't think I'd like to get any more livestock.

    1. Bethany, my cousin runs a huge far. She has 100 hectares of soil. Two cows and 29 pigs. Hard work no free time but fantastic landscape and fresh air. It is a bread basket region where she lives.

  13. I agree that farm life always looks so charming from a distance. Living it every day is such hard and constant work.

  15. Farming is a lot of hard, long hours...the work is never done...even in the dormant stages of the crops...there is always something that needs attention. I thank them for their diligence and stamina creating food for us humans.

    thanks for linking in this weekend.
