Since people seem to like farms I figured - why not another?

A little back Story: My sims bought this old Cider Factory and Orchard to transform it into a rustic home and barn. They kept some of the apple trees for their own 'personal moonshine' and of course, for their beloved horse.
He's such a good boy! :D

So - This lot has a fully furnished small country house decorated in the 'Shabby Chic Style" (I tried). It is good for any young sim couple looking to start a family. There is also everything you need to keep a cat or two very happy.

The 2 stall barn is perfect for breeding and the equestrian training grounds will turn any horse into a champion, racking up the big bucks - in no time.

If not, you can always sell the many apples you get 'tending garden' from the fully grown apple trees.

Special Note: We are all together in the isolation of the Corona Virus. I hope that this little contribution will help times indoors and on The sims 3, more enjoyable.

Hope you like!

*This lot is CC free and Sim approved.*

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Love the backstory of this house! (I need that "personal moonshine" recipe... wink). You can't have enough farm lots in town, for sure. It looks even better with snow, I find! It has a ski mountain lodge charm when snowed in.

You're so sweet to think of us during the pandemic. I've been passing out cyber hugs for months. So, as a thank you, here's yours! ((((((((((Hugs))))))))))
