We’ve been saying it for years. Wouldn’t it be nice to work from home? To leave the lights and the hum of the city behind and move to where we can live again? Where our children can be children again? Close to nature. In a small town perhaps? Or even better – on a farm. To live organically, in safety and in peace.

And yet, every time we dare dream these thoughts, we thought of a hundred reasons why not. Will I be able to work from home? Will there be Internet? Where will my children go to school?

And so we file the loveliness of the dream away and dismantle our very souls, slogging it out behind high walls and electric fences.

But what if it could be true? What if you could work from home? What if a place like that does exist? Where you can live off the land, even without being a farmer. Where the cows roam free as kids should. Where there is safety, where you choose to be connected, not just to the world, but to the land underneath your feet?

And wouldn’t you know it – it took a pandemic to show us we can. That working from home is a real possibility. It took a lockdown to show us the faults in our thinking. To understand what it is that is important.

If only a place like that exists. If only someone already had the vision. And wouldn’t you know it – it does. A place that is a working farm. That is connected to nature and the Net, with farm-fresh vegetables, clean air and a mountain to call your own.

And if you for one moment think that this is an advertisement for Crossways Farm Village, then you would be right. But don’t make that mistake. Because it is also an advertisement for loving where you live. For getting back to it all: working from home, playing with your children, breathing pure air, eating clean, exercising in nature, living the good life.

Crossways Farm Village just happens to be the place that can give this to you, and me. Where would I rather be? For me, the answer is clear.
