The Farm (農場 Nōjō ) is an area that Leon has to go through two times, on his way to save Ashley Graham and later to leave with her, which afterwards he has to fight multiple Villagers in a cabin with Luis Sera. It is also visited in the Separate Ways scenario, where Ada has access to a barn balcony (using her Grapple Gun) that Leon did not have access to.
This area is a farm which consist of two barns, two huts, and a well. Cows, chickens, and a dog also occupy the farm. A windmill is located in the north part of the farm, along with a huge door which was locked from the outside. It can be accessed later in the game. Villagers go about their business on the farm, working hay with their pitchforks. Blue Medallions are hung from the trees and buildings, with the About the Blue Medallions note explaining their presence.
Closest to the southern entrance to the area is small shed containing a barrel with a random item and a Typewriter to save on. About the Blue Medallions is found posted on a tree nearby, making mention of 15 breakable Blue Medallions. Seven are located on this farm and eight later on in the cemetery. Shooting 10 of them rewards you with the Punisher, which you can get from the Merchant, and shooting all 15 provides the Punisher with one free Firepower upgrade. A well sits next to the Typewriter hut with a Pearl Pendant dangling over the opening. Shooting the board supporting the well cover will allow proper recovery of the pendant. Dropping the pendant into the water gives you the Dirty Pearl Pendant, which is worth significantly less than it's clean counterpart. The large barn with cattle standing next to it contains two barrels, both of which give random items. Inside the larger barn, there are three barrels that provide random items, and a box sitting on a shelf which is also random. Two cupboards on the ground floor provide a Spinel in one, and a box of Handgun Ammo in the other. Another cupboard upstairs contains another box of Handgun Ammo. The second floor if this barn has a window leading to a catwalk. A small area to drop down into straight across from the window on the catwalk has a box containing the Beerstein. Pushing a bookshelf out of the way is required to escape this small area. At the end of the catwalk is another, larger fenced-in area with another hut and a large door, which is locked on your first visit. This hut contains a crate and a barrel, with the crate containing a Spinel and the barrel providing a random item. Use of an erected ladder is required to exit the fenced-in area. At the north end of this area is a door leading to the Deserted Village.
Upon your second visit to this location at night after freeing Ashley, bear traps will be located on the ground floor of the large barn, under the catwalk, and in the large fenced-off area with the large door. This door must be opened using a contextual 'Piggyback' option when Ashley is near. Crates and barrels respawn after the transition to night has occurred, providing new items. The exception to this is the box containing the Spinel in the large fenced-off area, which respawns but is empty. A red dumpster lies at the south entrance to the farm, which Ashley can hide in while she is accompanying the player.
This area is also explored in Resident Evil 4's "Separate Ways" sidegame.
