    Irish American ex-farmer and glad of it. Rogueing wheat at 5 a.m. sucks. So does having coyotes scare the crap out of you when you accidentally surprise them in the track of an irrigation circle. Changing siphons in the corn fields sucks, getting charged and damned near torn up by hogs sucks and accidentally bumping into the electric fence when fleeing angry hogs really sucks.

    I'm sure some people love that life, but it was not for me. I ran as fast and far as I could as soon as I was able.

    No honest to god. It's very complicated and there is a lot of family drama involved... but my dad's side of the family had a farm.. It was supposed to be left to my dad and his sister's but My Granddad’s sister forged documents so the farm would go instead to her son Noel.. It's a huge thing on my dad's side that they don't talk about any more because it hurt my Granddad.

    They were going to take it to court but My Granddad had Alzheimer’s and my dad lives in Canada now, one sister in England, one in Scotland and the other in Spain so it would be hard to do anything.

    This Noel character, my dads cousin has let the farm run to shit and apparently the house that’s on the land is now home to him and a bunch of male gypsies or squatters.

    Sorry, thought you were messing.

    Well, fighting over land is nothing new here. Have you ever seen the movie "The Field"?

    Sorry to hear about your Granddad. Hope he is being looked after.

    muchmorethanmuscle saidWhy use "professional" in the title?

    It's not like one has to go to college to become one. Is there a such thing as an 'unprofessional' farmer?

    I really like gardening and tilling the Earth but if I were to be a farmer I wouldn't feel the need to be called a "professional" farmer.

    I think farming and other positions normally not seen as glamorous (teaching and even trash pickup for example) are among the most noble professions. Don't care much for huge corporate farm operations though.

    On a straight farm the sheep are worried and the corn rows are perfectly straight.

    On a gay farm the sheep are, well, happy and gay, and the corn rows have a little twist in them on the end just for fun.
