Looking for real life farmers

Post by ribby » Tue Aug 20, 2019 1:52 pm

Hi there! I'm a journalism student at Cardiff University and I'm currently writing an article about people who play video game versions of their real life occupations or hobbies. If there's anyone on here who works on a farm in real life, I'd be really keen to get in touch. Many thanks!

I farm, I'm in my late 20s, I played before I took over my families farm, and I still love playing it. It's great distraction for real life issues. When you love what you do it is difficult to stay away.

If you're willing post your article here. Follow up is great.

I've played the game for about four years. In my late 20s currently, and I've been farming/ranching all my life.

I farm in real life and play the game because it relaxes me and I enjoy doing something I love.
