This was changed from Northcotton Farms to "Farm". If you look at the ingame text for the instance:

Northcotton Farms
"Several hobbits have disappeared recently in the vicinity of the Northcotton Farm. It was abandoned years ago, but something stirs within its grounds and a faint, sweet aroma wafts over the walls...

That is written in general tab chat each time you enter. Instance Join has Northcotton Farms as well. --Marble 16:06, 5 April 2011 (EDT)

Turbine has been generally inconsistent so far with this, as I understand - some editors see and prefer "Farm," others "Farms." Lacking a clear consensus, I suggested we just use "Farm" until Turbine makes up their mind. If they've changed things to be more consistent, then we'll follow suit - otherwise, we'll correct them. :-P Sethladan 17:37, 5 April 2011 (EDT)
Let's try to take the location name as noted under the mini-map for instance page naming (as has been done here), so everything keeps consistent. I think this is also what has been done in the past, although Turbine hasn't been as horribly inconsistent before. --Ravanel 18:07, 5 April 2011 (EDT)

Disambiguation Needed

The wiki entry for the Northcotton Farm needs to be disambiguated. Currently their is a settlement and an instance with the same name. Unlike areas such as Garth Agarwen, Great Barrows, etc which have quests embedded within the instance, the quests here are outside of the instance. As such it is a unique location which needs its own entry - as well as a cross-reference to the instance. DoIHaveTo 01:22, 22 May 2011 (EDT)

Go for it. :) This page could probably moved to something like "Northcotton Farm (Instance)" and then a separate page written about the non-instanced content - Rogue put a lot of work into locations in Angmar (like Aughaire) so that might be a good sample for writing up a quest-filled area like this. Just make sure that NCF (the non-instanced part) is a separate area in the game world and not smushed under Oatbarton. Sethladan 20:03, 24 May 2011 (EDT)
