For a long time rural living was considered owning a farm out in the middle of nowhere and tending to that farm. This is not the case anymore as rural areas and countryside are now two different places to live that both fall under the umbrella of rural living. This way of life speaks to anyone who lives outside of cities or other high population areas. I’m sure a large portion of those reading this right now live anywhere from 10-30 miles outside of the city you work in - that is the definition of rural living. Suburban areas have become very popular in the last 20 years and bridge the gap between urban living and rural living but there is still a very large contingent of people that prefer a slower way of life. If you have more than a half acre of land and need to drive a few miles to a grocery store than in this day in age that is the definition of rural living.
