Instead of going to college, I feel the desire to be closer to nature.?

Instead of College, I am going to buy my own land. I feel like I need to change how this world lives, but I need to start with myself. I have a strong desire to buy my own land away from others(others being people who dislike what I do), and to grow my own food, medicine, and etc. Hopefully near some sort of water source, so I can fish for food as well. I wish to eat what the land I live on can produce, not what canbe imported. I don't want food that comes from 1000's of miles away. Anyways I feel I can accomplish this, and that I can be far more happy with my life. I am 18, and I wish to live a life closer to nature. Currently I work at a dead end job for UPS. I just need some money so I can build my land. The food I produce will probably be sold to local markets for money as well. Along with w/e I produce. I feel that I am wise enough to choose not to go to college but yet, at the same time I really want to. I might go there for agriculture or something of that nature. Anyways, I was wondering if any of you knew farmers, or people who went from the urban life to, a more rural life(I think that is the right word). Any incite would be greatly appreciated. love, peace, and afro-grease.
