You mean the dairy that was overrun by a very large horde of walkers that DO NOT leave an area unless lured by something?
And which farmer, in the group, is going to maintain those fields?
Even if you have a farm, if you don't know how to run it... it's as useful as a parking lot once all the food is gone.
