I know what you mean - the parents of a friend of mine run an apple farm in South Tyrol. Visiting them in the spring is glorious.
Around here, I just have one apple, pear, plum and cherry tree each, planted some more apples, though. Lots of berry bushes, too.
And the rabbits are just named dinner #1, #2 and #3... no attachements there. Going to get some more from different litters later in the week, so that they can breed. Those are no dwarf rabbits, btw, they are just young. They gonna be huge and good eatin' ...
The ducks on my girlfriend's parent's farm are breeding, too, so a couple of ducklings are on the way. And some chicks... Moving into the rural backwaters really can change your life - to the better
