Let $$ABC$$ be a triangle.
Measure of exterior angle adjacent to $$\angle A=180^{\circ}-\angle A$$.
Measure of exterior angle adjacent to $$\angle B=180^{\circ}-\angle B$$.
Measure of exterior angle adjacent to $$\angle C=180^{\circ}-\angle C$$.
Measure of exterior angles$$=180^{\circ}-\angle A+180^{\circ}-\angle B+180^{\circ}-\angle C$$
$$=540^{\circ}-(\angle A+\angle B+\angle C)$$
$$=540^{\circ}-180^{\circ}$$ [Sum of all angles of a triangle is $$180^{\circ}$$].
$$=360^{\circ}$$.
So, sum of all the exterior angles taken in an order of the farm land is $$360^{\circ}$$.
