In marketing, a farm is a geographical area set by a marketer as a target area. I learned this term about a year ago and have since seen others in marketing use it. It is sometimes qualified with “geographic”. It is also used as a verb meaning to market to a farm, and “farmer” is used to mean one who farms.

The OED has a related term, farm-market, with a single citation form 1930: n. U.S. a market for books among the farming or agricultural population.

Otherwise, I don’t see this definition in the OED, Merriam-Webster, Wiktionary or Wikipedia.

Figure out what your farm area will be starting out. Remember that you have a smaller budget, team, and amount of time as you build momentum. Your farm area will grow as your deal flow grows. Focus on mailing an area that you can comfortably mail consistently every month.
