Farms and Factories (Russian: Фермы и фактории) form an organization in the Moscow Metro.


Farms and Factories are a small trade union consisting of the stations Sokol, Aeroport, and Dinamo. It is the largest livestock center and the main agricultural complex of the Moscow metro. It also produces leather clothes from pork skins. Farms are located not only at the stations and in the tunnels - abandoned bunkers and underground sewers are also used for growing crops. It is the only way to gain enough space to provide a good half of the Metro with large food supplies.

The farming community prospers thanks to Aeroport station, whose stalkers were the first in the entire Metro to find wheat grains not affected by radiation, allowing the community to bake bread. Stations of the organisation provide food for all of the main factions - the Commonwealth of the Ring Line, Fourth Reich, Red Line, Polis, as well as a number of other small states and independent stations. Farmers receive electricity (mainly for growing grain) under a special agreement with the inhabitants of the Kurchatov Institute, where two working nuclear reactors have been preserved. At the Dinamo station, whose residents inherited a tendency for tailoring from their enterprising predecessors, the production of clothing was established.

Farms and Factories are only briefly mentioned in the Metro 2033 novel and are never directly seen in any of the games. However, they have a great impact on life and events in the Metro. In Metro 2035, a famine starts in the Red Line because their mushroom farms are devastated by putrefaction. It is possible that Farms and Factories weren't able (or simply refused) to supply Red Line with enough food to lessen the impact of the mushroom disease, which only made the situation much worse and eventually led to massive riots.
