When to use landuse=farm
This tag landuse=farmyard was introduced to resolve the ambiguous use of landuse=farm in the past, as some mappers used it to tag farmland, other to tag farmyards (this was a result of the ambiguous meaning of the word farm in the english language and even more in the german translations).
As a consequence the tag landuse=farmland is now only used for farm land (i.e. areas used for tillage and pasture), and not the areas which are better described as a farmyard, and landuse=farm is not recommended.
