Is it always "on the farm" or are there any cases in which "at the farm" is possible?

If so, when should I use each of them?

Would you please give me some examples?

Thank you.

Should I use "at" or "on" in the sentence below?

She lost her virginity at/on his father's cousin's farm.

Thank you.

Dear CJ:

Is it correct to say, "his father's cousin's farm" or should I have written, "her father's cousin's farm"?

Thanks again for your kind help.

It depends whose farm it was! Or rather, whose father it was! Emotion: big smile

If it was hers, it's "her"; if it was his, it's "his". "his" refers to any man's, whether it was the man involved with her or some other man.
