Background[edit | edit source]
A small farm to the northwest of Vault 76, with a crop duster parked out front. It has a large anchor that gave the farm its name. In the days after the Great War, all of its inhabitants except a woman named Darla were evacuated to Flatwoods by the U.S. military. Others later attempted to claim the location, but all were killed or fled by 2102.
In 2103, a family led by Daniel took up residence on the farm, restoring and fortifying the location. Not long after their arrival, they were extorted by Roper, the leader of the Free Radicals. Although one resident, Maggie, vehemently opposed making any sort of deal with them, Daniel secretly killed her so that they could work out an agreement with the gang and not be wiped out.
Layout[edit | edit source]
This farmhouse, opened with Wastelanders, is a simple two-story home with two bedrooms. There is an old APC on the road and plenty of harvest nodes for glowing fungus, soot flower, and tato plants scattered around the place. The farm has access to purified water thanks to an industrial water purifier atop the small pond north of the farmhouse, and electricity from a large generator.
The "Anchor" in Anchor farm refers to a large statue of an anchor outside of the house. On the other end of the farm is a damaged blue and yellow biplane, next to a makeshift repair shop with a chemistry station, cooking station, tinker's workbench, and weapons workbench. Murray can be found around this area. Some other minor loot can be found here, including a cooler sitting by a tree. A brahmin pen is located on the east side of the house.
Several guard stations can be found around the farm. A guard post on the roof manned by Ursala can be accessed by climbing stairs found at a wooden shack with an armor workbench. Another post built atop a water tower can be found behind the farm, occupied by Xavier at night. A small fenced-in farm plot with silt beans, tatos, razorgrain, and pumpkins is located nearby.

This small farmstead has a large rusting anchor (the namesake of the abode) that is slowly rotting into the moist earth. A parked (and unusable) plane sits close to the (inaccessible) farmhouse. Check the road for a military APC for a better scavenging potential."
