I have a dilemma and would like a pro's opinion on the matter. I'm 28 years old and my girlfriend is 31. I work in the entertainment industry and she wants to quit her job to pursue organic farming. Now, neither one of us makes a lot of money, and I would like stability in my life. She also wants to raise a big family on top of everything. Personally, I'm against this idea because I have zero interest in farming and we would be most likely under a lot of debt. She wants to do this by herself with the help of some hired volunteers. A few years ago she spent a couple of summers working at a farm and found her passion. She hates her current job and feels that this will make her happy. Im not so sure. We would look to settle down somewhere within commute distance to Toronto. Is it even possible to buy a farm on the cheap?
Is this a good idea or are we headed for disaster?
