Have you ever thought what would be the lifestyle differences between a farmer and a city dweller? If you think life in a farm is like the life portrayed in the movies, then you are definitely not alone. In fact, most farmers live their lives a bit different from the lifestyle portrayed in popular media, at least up front. City dwelling dwellers are quick to make assumptions about people in rural areas, especially those that spend part or all of their time out of doors. However, there are some very real lifestyle differences between the two.
The biggest difference is that most city dwellers are what is known as “urban victims.” These are people who live with a high amount of stress due to lack of good jobs, constant pressure from family members, and unhealthy city environments. Farm life is much more relaxed, and it is typically much more relaxed than what many city dwellers experience. For one thing, a farm is typically a small community that offers much more security for its residents than a big city.
Another difference is in the type of life style. A farmer generally spends more time cultivating the land than in other types of life. Farming relies on nature for most of its production and also relies heavily on the work ethic of the people living within the farming community. City dwellers on the other hand have a tendency to cling to the more modern concepts of life, such as the theory of the need for convenience, comfort, and the like.
Although both are rather similar in many ways, there are some key differences between city life and farm life. The main difference is where the two populations find their inspiration. A city dweller may get his inspiration from a variety of sources, such as from television programs, newspapers, radio shows, advertisements, the internet, and so on. A farmer, on the other hand, may get his inspiration from a common theme – such as a local farm animal, a neighbor’s pet, or the colors of the rainbow.
However, one key similarity between city dwellers and farmers is that both types of people are usually critical thinkers who try to make the best use of whatever resources they have. The difference is that city dwellers tend to be critical at the expense of being pragmatic. Whereas, on farms, individuals are more open to risk and more willing to adapt. This willingness to change and adapt makes them better able to weather changes and weather hardship.
While there are many similarities between the two kinds of life, there are also some key differences as well. A farm, at its core, is basically a structure made out of a collection of tools and animals. City dwellers on the other hand are usually single entities with their own homes and social network. Therefore, if you find the urge to return to the life of a city dweller and desire to be part of the agricultural process, both you and your local farm will be able to help each other succeed.
