Abernathy Farm is a location in the Commonwealth in 2287. The farm can be turned into a settlement in two ways: (1) By retrieving a locket from a raider camp (Returning the Favor) and convincing the Abernathys to join the Minutemen or (2) by driving the Abernathys away.


Abernathy Farm covers a large area (mostly uncultivated) that grows tatos and some melons, which the Sole Survivor can harvest for caps from Lucy Abernathy. The farmhouse is a two-story makeshift structure built into the frame of a high voltage tower. The interior already has working lights, but no usable electricity.


  • Blake Abernathy - The patriarch of the family. Blake's daughter, Mary Abernathy was killed by raiders, with her locket being stolen by the killers. Blake is seeking revenge and thus will give the Returning the Favor quest. He also seems sympathetic to the Minutemen cause.
  • Connie Abernathy - Blake's wife, who is a vendor. If one injures the family cat, Connie will come after the Sole Survivor and beat them with a bat.
  • Lucy Abernathy - Blake's other daughter. She gives an unmarked quest to trade melons for caps.
  • Maisie - a tabby cat.
  • Clarabell - the Abernathys' brahmin.

  • Abernathy Farm is one of the first and safest locations to gather crops for Sanctuary and Red Rocket truck stop.
  • With at least 7 settlers (including the Abernathy's) one can have a thriving farming settlement that supplies tatos, corn, and mutfruit for vegetable starch (5 adhesive) as well as carrots and razorgrain for various soups to satisfy both Hunger and Thirst.


  • Abernathy Farm has the tallest building limit with 20 stories possible, surpassing Finch Farm's 13 stories, and Spectacle Island's 10 stories.
  • Unlike human settlers, Maisie and Clarabell will be permanently dead if they die during a settlement raid. They also do not regain lost hit points over time. Clarabell does not respond to feeding troughs. If you build one, she will remain where she is, unlike all other Brahmin. Thus, she is stuck where she is, even if you scrap the fence that surrounds her.
  • You can see Mary's grave just outside the settlement build area, north of the settlement. The grave is unmarked, with wet footprints in the dirt, denoting a recent burial. There is a bouquet of dried flowers on the grave.


Abernathy Farm only appears in Fallout 4.


  • pcIcon pc Assigning the Abernathy family to the existing owned beds in the settlement may cause a glitch that prevents other settlers from being assigned to various tasks. [verified]
  • pcIcon pc ps4Icon ps4 xboxoneIcon xboxone It may be necessary to create three new beds and assign the Abernathy family (and any recruited settlers) to player-created beds in order for the Happiness mechanic to work properly. [verified]
    • pcIcon pc xboxoneIcon xboxone The reaction time of settlers, from when you assign them to when they are assigned, is significantly longer than at any normal settlement. Therefore, it may seem like they are unable to be assigned to anything. It may take anywhere between 30 seconds to over 5 minutes for them to be assigned to a specific resource. [verified]
  • pcIcon pc The existing food crops may need to be uprooted and replanted immediately upon gaining access to the workbench to ensure that they do not become unavailable for assignment on subsequent visits. [verified]
    • Pre-existing crops that become damaged and in need of repair may cause a glitch where attempting to repair the plant will use available seeds but not fix the plant. (Uprooting/replanting as described above should prevent this glitch).
      • If one of the tato patches becomes non-interactive, quick-saving and then loading may allow them to be selected again, whereupon they should be stored and re-planted to prevent recurrence of the bug.
      • One can make the unrepairable crops work properly again by using console commands: first enter the console and select the damaged crop, repair it with SetDestroyed 0, exit the console and replant it in a proper location (the original location usually works), then enter the console again and destroy the crop with SetDestroyed 1, finally repair it normally outside of console.
