I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'unpleasant consequences' is the definition.
'aftermath' can be an answer for 'consequences' (the aftermath of something is its consequences). I'm not sure about the 'unpleasant' bit.

'trouble' indicates anagramming the letters.
'atthefarm' with letters rearranged gives 'AFTERMATH'.

'of' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for aftermath that I've seen before include "Circumstances that follow an event" , "End" , "Consequences of a bad event" , "Consequences of an unpleasant event" , "Frame that in following events" .)
