A farm is a property devoted to agriculture - the keeping of useful plants and animals, mostly for food.

Farms around the world differ in what they grow - cattle and wheat in middle America; fruit trees in Florida and California, USA; pineapples in Hawaii; olives in Europe; bananas and coffee in tropical regions; rice in Asia; and so forth.

Farms have also become a symbol of nostalgia in popular culture, of the "good old days" that once were. This may be due in part to the fact that a century ago, many families engaged in some level of farming, such as keeping a milk animal and a garden, to supplement their diet. Today, this tradition is largely lost to large-scale farming operations, ample refrigeration, urbanization, and "day jobs" located away from the home.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Farm

How to Draw a Farm Step 01

1. Begin by drawing the rolling hills. Draw long, curved lines that overlap and connect to each other.

2. Draw the barn perched atop the highest hill. First, use straight lines to enclose a heptagon or a seven-sided shape. The crest of the hill will serve as the seventh side. This outlines the front of the barn. Then, draw straight lines parallel to the top four sides. Connect them at the corners using curved lines, forming the barn's roof.

Next, use straight lines to enclose a rectangle, again using the hilltop as the fourth side. Draw straight lines parallel to the lines, connecting them with a curved line at the corner. Finally, draw two vertical, parallel lines in the center of the rectangle. This completes the barn doors.

4. Draw a window in the barn's loft or upper story. First, draw a square. Then, draw a slightly larger square around it with all lines parallel. Then, enclose a narrow rectangle above it. Draw horizontal parallel lines above the window and a circle above the lines. Enclose pairs of small rectangles here and there on the front of the barn to give it the texture of brick.
