Available to build right away, provides +1 Food Food to the tile. This yield can be improved through various means.

Technology Upgrades:


  • In addition to Grassland, Plains, and Desert, the Farm can be built on Hills and Tundra that are next to a river.
  • With Rising Tide, farms may also be constructed on coast, lake, or ocean tiles.
  • This graphic appears to have gone through several iterations.
  • As of the Winter 2015 update, the Ectogenesis Pod no longer provides +1 Food Food for Farms.


Farms are an inexpensive way of increasing food output, and with Vertical Farming tech can match the more expensive Biowell on most terrain.
