There could also be a small re-order in transport of animals/vegetables..

First, the farmer takes she-goat to the other side. Gets back and takes wolf. Take him to other side, picks up the she-goat, get her back to the side A, takes the cabbage, transport it to the other side. Wolf won't eat it, so, he just goes back for the she-goat and when they come to the side B, everybody's safe and sound.

So, apparently, the only thing to remember is that she-goat must go first, and must come back to the side A once again. The order of transporting wolf and cabbage is irrelevant.

Farmer can take SHE GOAT first over the river. Thus Wolf and Cabbage is left on the next side.
Farmer then returns for Cabbage. drops of the cabbage on the other side but carries back the SHE GOAT with him to the origional side.
Drops of the SHE GOAT and takes the WOLF into the boat and carry him to the other side.
Thus WOLF and CABBAGE is left one side and the SHE GoAT is to be carried back lastly with the farmer on his final trip

This is what I thought of. Why not leave the Wolf and Cabbage behind, Take the She-Goat all the way home, come back and then take the other two across in any order you like. But of course this would require for your home to be somewhat near by, as you do not want to cabbage to rott. I dont think a theif would mess with a wolf.

OH YEA! I AM THE SMARTEST MAN IN THE WORLD!

The farmer was a shrewd fellow. Yes they laughed at him when he left the market and joked about the envisaged disaster which would befall him. They were wrong.

Having arrived at the river bank, the farmer tied the wolf and the goat to seperate trees and rowed across with the cabbage. He rowed back and repeated the journey with the goat and tied it to a coveniently placed tree. The wolf was more of a problem because it was timid and prone to anxiety attacks that expressed themselves through a great deal of snarling and gnashing of teeth. But the wolf could swim and so the farmer tide it to the back of the boat and hauled it across the river where he tied it up to another handily located tree. He was exhausted by his efforts and so lit a fire and was soon tucking into one of Ma's special recipies for cabbage broth.

Come back, pick up Wolf.
Take Wolf over, but pick up She-goat and come back.
Now off load She-Goat, pick up Cabbage.
Take Cabbage over.
Come back, pick up She-Goat, take her over.

All three critters safely on the other side!
