we had pigs in a pen right outside the kitchen and you did not notice them because they were not confined to a small area and were free range and fed milk & feed not stuck in a barn.

No animals yet, but my neighbors keep urging me to get chickens! My huge front-yard veggie garden is a bit unruly, but people like it — I use big, sidewalk-facing labels so people can see what's what, and I make signs about things like how potatoes grow underground; how the black tomatoes were bred and what open-pollinated means; how you can guess which kind of beet will grow from each seedling, etc. I also keep a blog - what's growing in the garden, how to prepare and eat the things I grow, and local food and garden events (www.PlantandPlate.com). No complaints yet!

Always grow flowers in areas where the folks in the neighborhood can see them. It brightens up the area and softens their viewpoint of your 'farm.'

I also like to make periodic 'good neighbor' visits where I just happen to have some cucumbers or some flowers or some strawberries with me.

And always be friendly and outgoing. Don't become the weird neighbor whom nobody sees but late in the evening as he inspects his plants. Be out there. Wave. Say 'Hi.' Smile. Doesn't cost anything and goes a long way toward good relations with the folks.

Maybe we (suburbinites) need the
'right to farm' legislation too. This was brought in in 1980 because suburbs moved next to farms that were there first. Ironic. Now the farm is moving to the suburbs Ha. Ha.
