They might have it all: the big Hollywood mansions, sports cars, designer clothes and everything else you could want, but these 5 stars all yearn for a simple life and dream of one day heading off to the countryside and settling down on a farm where they would tend to animals and grow their own crops. Some love the idea of living very naturally and simply which is why the idea interests them, while others think it is an amazing way to raise kids because they learn more about life and get to frolic in the outdoors as they grow up. Perhaps wanting to try something a little different and a whole new lifestyle, these 5 stars dream of uprooting their lives and taking up residence at a farm.
Cameron thinks it would be very natural to start her own farm: “I’ve always been on the move so what I’d love to do is spend a whole year in one place, on a farm. I’d get to raise my own crops and livestock, and for once just see how life is cultivated. It’s almost like this primal thing. I really just feel as if the earth is where we all come from and we have nothing if we don’t have soil and water and sun. I’ve read a lot about agriculture and I feel the need inside me to work with the earth in some way.”
Kate reportedly has plans to convert her Cotswolds estate into a farm with animals and crops: “Kate has already converted part of her garden into a vegetable patch and she has submitted plans to convert three outbuildings. She loves the idea of keeping animals and wants an end to her partying lifestyle. It’s the perfect location as there’s plenty of space and when she’s not there, she’ll employ people to look after the animals.”
‘Muse’ frontman Matt dreams of getting away from it all by camping on a farm: “I might just live in a tent on my own farm somewhere, isolated with a shotgun. It definitely feels like we’ve got to a certain level as a live band. So it could be time to take a break, back off for a bit and see if anybody misses us.”
Rachel thinks it would be amazing to raise children on a farm because they would learn a lot about life: “I would give it a good shot for a while. I grew up in a small town, with a small backyard and raspberry bushes. My parents had a garden, but it was very basic. I think one thing that kids who grow up on farms really have going for them is they have exposure to death and birth in a totally different way. I think it takes away a little but of the mystery and a little but of the fear, and I do wish I had that.”
Tori might live it up in a huge house in California but she also dreams of moving to the countryside: “Showbusiness has been my life and I love doing it but I have this other side that wants to be the soccer mom and live in a small town, take my kids to carpool and just be home and cook dinner every night. I kind of wish I could balance both. I’d like to move to a farm. It’s one of my dreams. I want to raise animals (like) chickens goats, horses, sheep. Why not?”
