The Farm in Destiny 2 has a few hidden challenges and secrets, including extra scannable objects for some bonus lore and a series of platforming tasks to complete to earn the Scouting Commander buff, which increases movement speed and jump height.
►Scouting Commander Buff Steps
1) Wheel Completed & Sentry Rank x2
Walk along the top of the waterwheel and against flow like a treadmill for about 5 seconds. This first set of buffs gives small movement speed and jump boosts
2) Vertigo Completed & Sentry Rank x4
Follow the hanging cables across two sets of buildings. If you fall, you do not lose any progress
