Personally I would just take that leap, go down to the farm and just see what the people are like. I would say most people on an organic farm would be lovely, so that would be the perfect place to confront some of your fears.
Have a go!
I do have some types of social anxiety, yeah. But working on a farm wouldn't be so different from working anywhere else, and I've done that before. I DO want to connect with people and make new friends. I just have wierd issues with talking on the phone, and people seeing me when I'm trying to do something private. I consider spiritual stuff private, like going for a walk or meditating at sunrise, I wouldn't want anyone seeing me only because I want to be alone with nature. I don't even like exercising with people. I just like going about my daily routine alone, but I want to share my interests and hobbies with groups of people. I like to keep the two worlds seperate.
