The Farm is a Native American building in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs, available to the Aztecs, Iroquois, and Sioux. It is similar to the European Mill and the Asian Rice Paddy in that up to ten Villagers can gather an infinite amount of food, but it also functions as a Livestock Pen by fattening livestock tasked to it.

Both Villagers and livestock tasked to the Farm will count toward the total units allowed, so if there are already ten Villagers at the Farm, some of them will have to be removed to fatten livestock, an vice versa.

History Edit

"The Native Americans were well versed in various agricultural techniques. Sharing their expertise with the Mayflower colonists helped ensure the colony's survival. Adaptation of agriculture among Indian Nations depended largely on usefulness and location.

The Aztecs, with their home city of Tenochtitlan, engineered extremely complex systems of farming, producing crop yields capable of supporting a population of several hundred thousand people.

The Iroquois were accomplished growers of fruits and vegetables. They referred to their three primary crops - corn, beans, and squash - as "The Three Sisters."

The ancestors of the Sioux and other Plains Indians were farmers as well as hunters, but their descendants adopted a more nomadic buffalo-based way of life after being forced westward by the advance of the Europeans.
