Office work is an important part of running a farm. There is tracking of payments of both ways: in and out of the bank account. Communications with a variety of contacts via a variety of means. Tracking of taxes and those payments due.
Most of my adult life I've had a home office. A desk in the basement, then in a first floor office Homer and I shared. A couple of times I had offices in office buildings with doors or just cubicles, windows and those officy partition things.
Only now do I have the best view ever. Out of our office window a few times each year...a day or two every 5-6 weeks, the cattle are in the front yard. The view is this, the movement is leisurely passing as they mow the grass searching for tender tidbits.
