I loved the Farm (story in the sig). I can't speak for anyone else's experiences, but they were hands-off for me! Ina May knitted a sock for most of the labor.
They only did one VE, and that was because I asked them to. I moved around a lot, and the only time they suggested a position to push in was when I wasn't making any progress in a sitting-up-leaning-back position. (Not a good one, especially with a breech baby, but that was how I had ended up at first. Moving to the toilet was a wonderful idea.)
I think they do get somewhat more complicated births, simply because they're more willing to take them than most people. I know they got us at the last minute, for the same reason. We kept trying to turn the baby, and by the time we realized he wasn't turning I was almost 38 weeks. With him coming a little bit early, I only ended up visiting them one time before the birth, then driving the five hours down there in labor.
I really did love it. Next time I'm planning on a homebirth in my very own home, but actually I'm a bit worried about whether I'll find a midwife up here who'll be as hands-off as I like. I'm pretty picky now, with such a good first birth, and reading mothering all the time.
P.S. They did give me some oxygen at about the third hour of pushing, because apparently I was looking pretty tired (I'd been throwing up during transition). Just thought I'd mention that, since there was talk about interventions. That and the VE (and having my 2nd-degree tear stitched afterwards) were the only ones I had.
