A Farm in Civilization V

Game Info[]

Basic agricultural improvement. Available from the start of the game.


Farms can be constructed on almost any land tiles to improve a hex's Food Food output. Having access to fresh water enhances a Farm's effect on tiles earlier because Civil Service is available well before Fertilizer.

Civilopedia entry[]

Farming is one of the earliest and most important of all human professions, as it allowed mankind to stop migrating and settle in one location without depleting the local resources. Farms can be constructed on most any land to improve the hex's output of food.
