Should I use "at" or "on" in the sentence below?

She lost her virginity at/on her father's cousin's farm.

BTW, is it correct to say "her father's cousin's farm"?

Thank you.

@paok1970,
Either at or on is fine. "Her father's cousin's farm" is a mouthful, but there is nothing wrong with it. Her father's cousin is also her cousin once removed, so saying "her cousin's farm" would also fit in standard usage.

@engineer,
By saying "her cousin," one would be sacrificing exactness for brevity, though. "Cousin" brings to mind primarily one's uncle's or aunt's child, not one's father's cousin.
