In order for someone to be liable for your damages, their negligence must have been the cause of the damage. Here, what you describe is that the cause is your inattention, not that the object was at the street.

Yes you have a case against the farmer. It is the farmer's fault. He should turn it over to his business or homeowner's insurance. If he or she fails to do so, a lawsuit would be proper.

Either you were working and your employer covers it; or you were not working and your personal insurance covers it. There may be some odd circumstances that interfere with that simple analysis; but that seems to be the common sense of your situation. Good luck.
