Now this would play right to their strengths.  They would LOVE to have animals on their property that they could eventually kill and eat (at least FIL would).  He already has a smokehouse in his backyard.  Think "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" but a different ethnicity.  FIL routinely barbecues pigs and lambs for any occasion he can make up and smokes his own Canadian bacon.

Great idea! Does OP's MIL like goat cheese? What a great gift! Now she can make her own. Once she gets done breeding them so they actually produce milk. And figures out to milk them.
And how about some chickens so she can have fresh eggs. Providing she figures out how to get them away from the chicken without losing a hand in the process.  ;D
Ooops, I forgot the cow.

I vote for Sycamore saplings in their yard when they return from vacation, also some creeping vine that sneaks up on them.
