One last one for this week:

A farmer is travelling with a fox, a goose and a bag of beans.  During his journey, he came across a river with a boat to cross it.  The farmer can only fit one thing in the boat with him at a time.  If left alone together, the fox will eat the goose or the goose will eat the beans.  How does the farmer get everything across safely?
