My grandparents had a farm where I spent a lot of time as a kid and young adult and they and my mom always encouraged me to spend lots and lots of time playing (working??) in the dirt.

  2. I was raised and lived on farms till my mid twenties in NZ we roamed all over the farms without supervision got covered in mud in the wet splashed around in the creeks and bush in the summer did our chores helped milk the cows and on school days rode our bikes three miles up hill to catch the bus for school and sometimes if we wanted to play sport we would bike 20miles each way to town and back on the weekends We where fit healthy and never had a day of sick unlike todays town children .
