You're right!
It's FACTORY FARM (anagram of 'a crafty form')

I hope you did sleep well Walshie.

I doubt there is an exact definition of a factory farm, but I think it's a term to describe a large-scale, industrial agricultural business run more like a factory than a traditional farm; a battery farm would an example of this. I guess a factory farm is the opposite end of the farming spectrum to 'free-range' & 'organic'. Yum yum.
