The Dream!

Hi folks, just throwing this out there for a few opinions.

I am extremely interested in farming although we don't have any land ourselves. My dream is to have 20 or 30 acres and a few cattle, just as a past time really. I would also have an off farm job.
At the moment I work full time and I also have a part time job although it will be finishing up soon. I am a regular saver with a view to buy suitable land if it came up in suitable location. If I buy land I probably won't be able to afford a house. Conversely, if I buy a house there aint no money left for land!
So is this just a pipe dream or is it realistic?! I don't really have any interests outside of farming and I don't imagine I will be getting married anytime soon

You could always buy a house and rent a few acres to see how you fair out to feed your interest
