I really believe the 'no-field' description way is the right way to go 
here. Perhaps we can combine mine, with yours, with Hagans? Personally I 
prefer a short description of a farm setup (the goal), a step-by-step up

into), and then other descriptions below.

Here's my step-by-step: http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/WikiFarmsDaveG
