Since the establishment of this website in the early 18th century, no contributor has ever suggested this most obvious of articles… until now. Maybe it shows that all of our ideas have finally run out, or maybe it shows that sometimes there can be a good article wrestled from something that exists right under your nose.
The list is an odd mix of drama, horror, and family comedy. The “farm” is an incredibly divisive entity that only exists in the movies to either entertain children with the madcap antics of talking animals or to horrify grown-ups with tales of inbred farmers killing and maiming with gay abandon. If this list teaches us anything, it is that the very concept of the “farm” itself is nebulous, and is taken here to mean an isolated plot of land which is habitable and could potentially grow crops, form some kind of product, or to rear animals. The farm can be a metaphor for almost everything in life, and after reading this humble article you will never look at farms in the same way.
