Famous quotes containing the word farm:

    A farm is a good thing, when it begins and ends with itself, and does not need a salary, or a shop, to eke it out.

    Physically there is nothing to distinguish human society from the farm-yard except that children are more troublesome and costly than chickens and calves and that men and women are not so completely enslaved as farm stock.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    I farm a pasture where the boulders lie
    As touching as a basketful of eggs....
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
