Despite being one of the most in-demand supermodels on the face of the planet, Gigi Hadid has managed to always differentiate herself from the pack by retaining a certain groundedness that she consistently professes, a character trait that is a result of her lifestyle.

Living on a farm has afforded Hadid the ability to have a certain duality that most celebrities can't convincingly profess, yet with her,​ it has always seemed organic. The farm that her family calls home may be to thank for consistently shaping her into the woman she is today.

"It’s where we can all come and feel like ourselves again," the model said to Elle Magazine back in 2019, elaborating on why her family chose to move somewhere so private.

"When I’m here, I just get in my truck and go to the store. Kids get excited at the market, but they don’t take their phones out. They want us to feel normal, and that’s very appreciated," she said of the townspeople, who allow her to remain grounded while living in the country retreat.

While speaking to Hapers Bazaar, she explained in more detail why the Pennsylvania getaway spot is so important to her.

"It’s allowed me to fill my days off with the little things that make me happy, like art, gardening, yoga, cooking, being outside, and spending time with my loved ones and animals without having to worry about things like what I’m wearing or how my hair looks, or being photographed or seen that day. Being away from the city and the public eye makes me feel like a kid again, and that freedom has been really healing for me."

Hadid then went on to explain how one of the many things being at the farm has gotten her in to is chair making, "When I’m spending time on the farm, I find it fun to try something new and see if I can pull it off. It’s liberating to just create without the end goal of it being necessary to finish. The chair idea came from that. I wanted to see if I could build a wood frame first and then pour resin into it and make a clear chair."

"I built the wood part and then through the next step learned that you can only dry resin in small layers, and the more layers I added, the more it was clear that I didn’t make my frame tightly sealed enough."

"Failed miserably. I ended up giving up on the big one and made a small-scale version, which worked a lot better! I like the 'Try and fail and try again' method. It keeps it fun and interesting for me, and even through failures you can learn so much," she concluded.
