Farmer played in Spencer's Mountain (1963) and More (1969). After a brief film career in the United States, mostly portraying "party-girl" types in films such as Hot Rods to Hell (1967), Riot on Sunset Strip (1967), and The Wild Racers (1968), Farmer moved to Italy. Most of her career has been spent in Europe, including a giallo movie with Dario Argento.

In 1962 and 1963, respectively, Farmer guest starred as Laurie in "The Swingin' Set" and as Joanne Wells in "Boys and Girls" on the American Broadcasting Company sitcom The Donna Reed Show.

She made two guest appearances on Perry Mason in 1964, including the role of defendant Kathy Anders in "The Case of the Tragic Trophy". She appeared on My Three Sons, Honey West, The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, The Outer Limits (March 2, 1964 episode "Second Chance") and The F.B.I.. In 1966, she appeared as Lorrie Thatcher in the episode "The Calico Kid" and as Antonia in the episode "A Prince of a Ranger" on the NBC western Laredo.

Since 1992 she has worked as a sculptor for theatre and opera in France and Italy, and for films (Art Department) such as Oceans, Troy, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Marie Antoinette, Five Children and It, and The Golden Compass.

She also creates personal sculptures and paintings.
