I would have exactly what I DID have a few years ago.
Llamas, dogs, geese, and ducks, with fruit trees, and vegetables.

A great mix, fun and not too hard to manage and keep.

Horses would be nice

I was brought up on a farm in Zimbabwe 3-15 (inbetween being at boarding school!), have great memories of the freedom of riding my bike down to the dam etc and meeting my friend on bikes halfway between farms. We grew tobacco (politically incorrect now). I was a smoker for years as an adult but thankfully managed to give it up totally with hypnosis...am getting dejevu, sure we have had a similar question before Finy?

I've given this one a lot of thought over he last few year, Finy. This is our retirement dream! I'd like half a dozen chooks, 2 or 3 cows, 2 dogs, a dam, creek or river, a vegie patch and a ride on mower too. What's the fascination we women have with ride on mowers?!

You sound as if you had the ideal set up, Finy!
Sandy -I dont know about the ride on mowers! perhaps it is an easy task that men often do -i found it relaxing though I had a problem emptying it sometimes!

Llamas were the most delightful animals -check out my article on ReadyforPets -have written a few on farm animals! And the birth of a llama.

Maybe it's escapism, Finy! I will read your articles!

I'd have chickens, dogs, lots of fruit trees, a veggie patch and horses.
a gorgeous farmer :-)

Exactly where my mind was too! Only mine would be a team of hunks to do all the hard work so I could watch, lol!

I Love Ducks
& yes some fruit trees and vegetables...and I would have a dog.
Also I would build a big pond.Love trees, so some of them.

I have to have a ride on mower....Last time I used one of them, they had a hard time getting me off...even in the dark!
Yes I also had a ride on mower and huge expanse of lawn -lake on one side of house and river on the other -why did I leave!!!

What sort of ducks would you like? {LINK http://animalpedia.com.au/pekin-duck/19838/ Pekins] or Khaki Campbells? Or perhaps Indian Runners - they're pretty popular!
Thanks Matt for the info.Just got to get the farm now... :)

I used to have a ride on mower. I told my husband that the next one I buy will have headlights. In the end my gardens got bigger and the area I needed to mow got smaller so I said goodbye to my trusty steed.
by annfi
Oh! Noooo bye to the ride-on, that's sad... :(

Living on a farm doesn't fascinate me. I am a tech junkie
EVERYTHING!!!!! But I would need someone to look after it all for me as I am unable to do so myself! I love fruits,vegetables and herbs,plus I would adore a huge rose garden.And as I am the most Animal-crazy human on the planet,I would have to have all the furry critters under the sun!!
Aaaaaah! Heaven on Earth! To dream the impossible dream........
I would probably have some ducks like Khaki Campbells and maybe some Pekins as well.
This is part of my plan is to live on a farm, with chicken, goat,cows, dogs a fish pond and a few horses and plant my own vegies.
A Horse. Dogs. Cats. Donkeys. 'Lawnmower' goats. Chooks. Cows.

100's of Trees, with some being BIG canopied, for me to sleep, & read under!
Paddocks of produce, for animals, & I.
As many Fruit Trees as possible.

Numerous Veggie patches with ALL my fave veggies!

Many water tanks.
A flowing, hopefully, stream, at least, but preferably a creek, in which I could swim.

Auxiliary dams, with one stocked with fish, for me to enjoy catching! Then cook on my big, bluestone BBQ!

Sheds for my animals' comfort, when needed.

That'll do for a start!
I am lucky to regularly visit a farm and my friend who lives there has so many beautiful well cared for animals- dogs, a cat, pony, cattle, goats,sheep and all manner of poultry including Peacocks. I think her family are so fortunate. What a lovely life for children.

In my dreams I would have chickens, alpacas, a goat, maybe a rescue horse, a pet pig, a rescue donkey or two preferably able to occasionally show off in pretty hats, dogs of course, maybe a couple of Emus...the more I think the longer my list becomes. If I was younger I would probably care for rescued wildlife if I had a farm. As a vet nurse I had some experience caring for rescued animals and it was a dream to have a big property where I could provide refuge.
In reality I wouldn't manage to care for everything properly, so I am happy to stick with what I have - 10 chooks , 3 quail hens, a lovely dog, some fish in a pond and a small vege garden. I find that challenging enough and I am satisfied with my lot.
