A farm is the basic unit in agriculture. It is a section of land devoted to the production and management of vegetable foodstuffs. It may be an enterprise owned and operated by a single individual, family, or community, or it may be owned by a corporation or company. The development of farming and farms was an important component in establishing towns. Once a people move from hunting and collecting and from simple horticulture to active farming, social arrangements of roads, distribution, collection, and marketing can evolve. With the exception of plantations and colonial farms, farm sizes tend to be small in newly settled lands and to extend as transportation and markets become sophisticated. Farming rights have been central to a number of revolutions, wars of liberation, and post-colonial economics. Enterprises where livestock are raised on rangeland are called ranches. Where livestock are raised in confinement on feed produced elsewhere, the term feedlot is usually used. A truck farm is a farm that raises vegetables, but little or no grain. Truck is an archaic word for vegetables. Orchard is used for enterprises producing tree fruits or nuts, and vineyard is used for enterprises producing raisins, wine or table grapes. Stable is used for operations principally involved in the production of horses

Talk to your children about where milk comes from. Then fill a latex glove full of milk and poke small holes in one or two of the fingers. Now the children can see how it is to really milk a cow.
