"Give me land lots of land, lots of beautiful land. I would love to own a working organic farm with chickens, an orchard, a vegetable garden and sheep so I can make delicious and healthy meals and host dinner parties outside under the stars as the sheep graze. I would place it in conservancy so the land would remain undeveloped and beautiful for our children and their children's children."
