bucolic

compounding; adjective
farm lands, but more broadly, nature
 
used when referring to a natural setting like when one thinks of the "old times" of forests and farms and people cohabiting nature.
Etymology : earlier bucolical (1520s), from L. bucolicus, from Gk. boukolikos "pastoral, rustic," from boukolos "cowherd, herdsman," from bous "cow" + -kolos "tending," related to L. colere "to till (the ground), cultivate, dwell, inhabit" [OED]
Source : 11/13/2011 - Wandering Home: A Long Walk Across America's Most Hopeful Landscape: Vermont's Champlain Valley and New York's Adirondacks by Bill Mckibben “Middlebury has its share of handsome and self-satisfied preppies on their way to the important task of investment banking, but it also attracts a steady flow of kids for whom the bucolic setting provides more than backdrop.”
