We use the grass as our picnic blanket, sometimes a tractor wheel as a seat, any flat surface on our equipment as a table. We need to be innovative to make things work and aren't too picky when it means taking a break from behind the wheel.
I think on our farm the person who needs to have the greatest flexibility and ingenuity is the Head Chef, Mom. She might be making a sit down meal only to find out someone is out in the field and suddenly a soup and sandwich needs to be wrapped up and transported without missing a beat or spilling a drop.

It isn't always easy and rarely convenient.
This week we were prepping some seed beds at one of the off farm properties and this marked the first, of many, meals-to-go. Mom had made a lovely lunch and with some texting to the respective tractor drivers tweaked each meal so every one got what they wanted.
I was on delivery that day and we loaded up the carefully boxed lunches. I drove to the property, trekked across the freshly seeded field and hand delivered lunch to the happy recipients. That's pretty fast food if you ask me and top-notch service.
Of course, I have yet to inform everyone that if this service is expected for the rest of the season some tipping is in order.
Safe travels and I hope all your meals make it safely!
