For an older farmhouse aesthetic look a low pitched roof on the porch is commendable.I cannot advise on a specific pitch because I do not know how wide of a porch you have in mind.Railings with balusters are appropriate for the aesthetic look of a farmhouse.The balusters do not have to look like toothpicks either.Frank Lloyd Wright is the one who invented the ranch(or Usonian)style of home.You could hark back to his geometric style.If your ranch home is all brick,consider vinyl siding on some areas of the exterior to break the expanse of brick and the bland effect it gives.
