Basically, the "Farm" is land/woods in the country. That's it. No requirement to raise livestock or grow soybeans. Dad doesn't wear overalls or bale hay. Kelly doesn't feed slop to the pigs. They didn't even have to go to farm school! Sheesh, they'll let anyone run a "farm" these days!
For years, the Farm was just woods. Dad and Kelly cleared a road into a field, stuck a picnic table out there and called it a day. It was around this time when I made my first visit to the Farm. Needless to say, I was underwhelmed. I couldn't see anything but trees. However, Dad and Kelly had a vision. Dad pointed out where he wanted to build a lake (over by those trees), where he wanted to plant an orchard (over by those other trees) and where he wanted to build a house (on the other side of those other trees). Ok? I was still confused.
But here we are years later. And guess what...
There's a lake over where those trees used to be.
I see it now Dad! I get it!
