Breakfast on the farm: Olivia is in the kitchen drinking wheat grass, an herbal remedy she takes for her progressing lymphoma. Her “adopted son,” Dylan, is out in the fresh air, finishing organic birthday cake, and getting ready for his favorite thing in the world—snuggling! It’s just a typical day on the farm … but you’d be wrong if you took these two for hippie leftovers from ’69. They’re not hippies. They’re farm animals.
