This download is part of the Farm/Rural Creator Challenge
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
ATTENTION!!! 12-17-07 / I've updated the file and fixed it!! If you've downloaded it before this date then please redownload!! Special thanks to JLonier for pointing me to this thread, http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=200668
which explained how to fix what went wrong!! I am so sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused!!

1-18-08 Sienna972 asked me if I could upload a version of my farm that didn't require Pets, Seasons, or Bon Voyage. So here it is! Alot of the wallpaper is different, and I've left it unfurnished, so decorate however you want!! (To the moderators - I hope it's ok to add this to this post, since it's the same farm, just "fixed" )



This cute little farm is nestled snuggly up against the base of the Rocky Mountains. When Ellsworth's Grandfather first settled this land it was a honey of a deal. Unfortunately, by the time Ellsworth inherited it, prices were sky high and he felt the need to sell it. It comes furnished, complete with animals, and a small Garden just off the bridge.



Lot size = 5x6
Category = Residential
Price = $180,605
Played/Tested - Not yet, but will post info soon



Details:
Master Bedroom/Bath
Nursery
2 Children's Rooms
2 Guest Bathrooms
2 car Garage



Chicken Coop
Pig Sty
Garden
Large Barn

OOPS!

I think I forgot to put the driveways back in after recoloring them!! I used the invisible driveway and extensions from Roddyaleixo! You can get them here at http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=90875


Once again,

Please do not upload this lot to the Exchange / paysites / or claim as your own.

Please do not claim the walls / floors / terrain paints that I created as yours.

And please hit the thanks button on your way out!

Just try it again. I've had that happen several times with other files here on MTS2. Usually it works better the second time around!!

And thank you to all who've downloaded, thanked me, and left comments!!!

Happy Simming!

This looks very nice puppetfish, but those poor Sims do look like they have their work cut out for them!

A note for next time: if you let your new upload just overwrite the original, and keep the original filename, then the download count should be preserved. But if you delete the old file first, then upload the new one the count is reset.

Great farm. I love the layout! After seeing the trees in your lot, I decided to finally install Bon Voyage! The trees give that country edge to your lot! And your chicken houses and pig sty are great! You inspired me to get building (although my farm has no chickens and pigs) . I absolutely love the traditional "feel" and the rustic "look" of this lot! Thanks for sharing it!

Creativity is giving the soul permission to leap beyond the boundaries of the ordinary!

Did you get it working? I know that MTS2 was having download issues recently, and yesterday (I think) the Q Express was offline for the whole day!

This looks very interesting. I think it'll adapt nicely as a farm stay guest house in Three Lakes or as a community lot in a rural 'hood.

This is a wonderful farm, thank you. I have downloaded the noBV etc choice, but, will be getting the EP's soon. Can I just re-download for an overwrite then or must I remove the no-EP version first.
Again, many thanks from a small farmer in Maine.

Thank you so much for you kind comment

I'm not sure. I think you have to delete the old one, then install the new one. But leaving the old one in won't hurt. You'll just have two different versions.

I hope this helps!!
