In Belgium, the convention is to use farmland for growing plants, and
landuse=meadow for grazing land (raising animals). So here the use of
"farm" means it's old, undefined mapping...

> Dear all,
>
> at openstreetmap-carto - the standard style on osm.org - a change has
> been merged
> (https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/pull/2554) to drop
> rendering of landuse=farm. There was overall consensus that this tag is
> deprecated and its usage steadily declined over the last years, but
> there are still around 340 000 uses. See
> https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/landuse=farm and
> http://taghistory.raifer.tech/ for details.
>
> This change will make it into the next release, but there is no release
> date yet. You might want to change cases of landuse=farm in your area to
> either landuse=farmland or landuse=farmyard before that. Please don't do
> any automatic re-tagging though. After the release empty spots will make
> it easier to clean up the remaining uses of this tag.
