place=farm is used to map an individually named farm, often including an area where a family of farmers resides.

A farm can be a part of a human settlement (place=* like hamlet, village, town) which has buildings and land for farming. Usually there are a few central buildings around a landuse=farmyard with landuse=farmland or landuse=meadow surrounding it.

If the farm is not part of a bigger settlement (regarding structure not administration) and the farm and comprising settlement itself is not bigger than defined for isolated dwellings in your country, use place=isolated_dwelling.
