In my farm I have 3 horses, 8 goats and sheep, some ducks, 4 dogs and some cats. You do not have access to the animals, except if you want. They are separated by fences.
As you are in a FARM, in the middle of the woods, and as the animals are not human (but they are better than the majority of the people I know!) sometimes you will listen to them, because it is their way to communicate!
If you do not like animals or nature, I am sorry but this place is not good for you!
