Rural Living Directory

Areas that are located outside cities or towns are known as Rural Areas. It comprises of villages and the countryside. Unlike cities and towns, the population density in these areas is low. The main source of livelihood in rural areas is agriculture. Since the population in villages is low, there are many open areas of land available to the people, which they can use for the purpose of farming and other agricultural activities. Apart from agriculture, dairy farming is also an important occupation in rural areas. Most farmers raise cattle in their farms as dairy animals for obtaining milk and other dairy products. Animals and birds such as cows, goats, pigs, chicken, ducks, etc. are also raised as livestock (beef, veal, ham, etc.) in a farm. Rural living is very different from that of the cities. Rural areas are mostly self-sufficient unlike cities where almost all the goods and commodities are transported from villages and countryside.
