-nya refers to both his and her so The farmer and her wife should be an acceptable answer.

Yes, it does. Even if Indonesia doesn't recognize same gender marriage, we should still be able to discuss the concept in Indonesian. There are plenty of married lesbian farmers in other countries, so this sentence is entirely plausible -- much more so than some of the truly weird stuff that we see in Duo.
