Unlike Woodcutter's Camps, Mines, or Oil Wells, Farms can be built on any area of land without obstructions. Unlike the aforementioned buildings, however, Farms must be built within the economic radius of a city, and only a maximum of five Farms is allowed for every city, making expansion a critical component for Food gathering. Another difference with other gathering buildings is that only one Citizen may harvest Food from a Farm at any given time. However, a Farm's bulding speed may still be sped up if more than one Citizen is sent to build it. Upon a Farm's construction, its nation receives the immediate bonus of 20 Food.
