According to various publications and online venues, farm life is quaint. Borderline romantic, in fact. Depicted as a dreamy place of harmony, the Farm is usually expressed with an illustration, drawing, or beautiful painting of a barn, either stately or humble, which is always strategically tucked into a manicured, Autumn landscape. Skilled artists express a tranquility in their paintings of rural living and Southern Living Magazine goes as far as suggesting delicious meals made from the very veggies and herbs planted on said magical kingdom. Perhaps we should throw in some freshly squeezed lemonade for good measure – with a sprig of mint, of course.
