Me and my family (my wife and our three children) are living out, in the boonies (as they say). It's a kind of village far away, in the forrest of Zselic, with very few people (about 180). That's about 30 families with many kids (at least 3 or more in every family). We are living here because we think that this is the best way to raise our children. With a minimal amount of money but with hard work and a silent soul (as possible). They use to say, Visnyeszéplak it's a kind of eco-village.
About me: I'm a vet, but never wanted to heal any animal from this overdrugged system. I feel myself more balanced (though I have a dislocated hip:)) with raising animals and growing crops.
So, we have some honeybees, some pigs, a jersey-cow and a horse. And a lot of work with them and with the agriculture. I always wanted to work the soil with our horse, but at this time we can use her just for transport. Well, even this is very helpfull, our roads are not in a good condition. After a good rain usually even jeeps can not travel easily here. And that's good, we don't like very much machines in this place, that way our children are safe here. It's a little bit schizophrenic, but for working the soil I really need a smaller tractor (well, not a 200 horse power, just a 20 horse power one. Maybe a used japanese one). My legs just don't allow me to work as hard as we need to work here. Yes, you can think about me going out of our village, making a praxis as a normal vet, making some good money. I tried that too, but it's not a good way to raise children.
Here's an article about us: http://24.hu/belfold/2016/04/18/a-penz-nagy-nagy-s.... Unfortunately it's just in hungarian, but maybe You can understand some with google translate.
And here's a link about our village: www.visnyeszeplak.hu. We made it linked to a project from norway grants.
I thank You in advance for any help! It would be good for us in any way.
