Buy the farm was originated with pilots. Mostly military.
If something from the government crashes on to a farm - like a military plane, the government 'buy the farm'. as in the land that it destroyed. The pilot is dead because of the impact...
Bob : You know Dave? He bought the farm whilst on a training excerise last week
