A farm has a lot of land owned by the same person where they grow various crops for profit.
When I saw the phrase "content farms" I immediately thought of a so-called SEO program I checked out months ago that offered to take content you had written and post it to multiple blogs and other sites. After some checking I found they were all located on the same IP, owned by the same company, etc., i.e., this company had bought up multiple domains where they "farmed out content". I'm hoping Google has targeted that scam.
