The Farm

The Farm [thee·farhm] n. colloquial nickname for Stanford University due to the fact that the campus was carved out of the extensive land holdings that made up the Stanford family's horse farm and still contains buildings, like the Red Barn, which pre-date the University's founding. *note: understandably, cows and horses feature heavily in Stanford jokes and iconography.
