I retired 2yrs ago october. I lived and worked for 35yrs on the jersey shore 3 blocks from the ocean in pt pleasant beach. In the summer it was a nightmare with all the tourists, traffic, draw bridges, etc. But we got used to it and had a good life raising 4 kids. Then in January I decided to buy a farm in central NJ. Yes I am the real Green Acres guy lol. I knew nothing (built custom homes) about farming. We moved in in May. I thought for sure my wife would be asking to go back to the city in a week. The farm had not been occupied for 4yrs and was a total mess. But it came with all the equipment so between my building knowledge and connections the house is very nice and we have planted some fields, raised some chickens, and got our first pig lol. I could NEVER go back to the city LOL. I bet this will add 10yrs to my life. Granted there is always something to do 7days a week but we luv it. Even my wife said (and believe me it took alot to get her here and I am almost never right lol) SHE LUVS FARM LIFE.
