The maths behind the Farms
To know how long a farm will pay it's upgrade by itself (if you don't max out the storage), you have to take the upgrade cost and divide by the bonus per hour. For the best approximation, you can add the food production lost during the upgrade to the cost. the forlmula is (cost + production*time)/bonus
Example, a farm level 6 to level 7 is 140k food. the production pass from 800 to 1100 (bonus of 300) and it take 11h to upgrade. the time it take for the upgrade to be paid is (140k+800*11) /300 = 496h = 20.6 days.
The same way, level 7 to level 8 farms take a little bit more than 62 days to pay itself.
Survivor level is the most important thing for progression of stars and completing the newer content. If your main goal is to get survivors to level 15 ASAP, then you should stop leveling your farms at 6 or 7. So if we're talking raw min/maxing and best use of your resources in this context, there is no choice or personal preference. It's a solid fact that you're wasting time by leveling your farms beyond level 7 until AFTER you have a level 14 Training Grounds.
If you take count on personnal preferences, you can upgrade farm to level 7 as level 1 to 6 can hold 8 hours of supplies and level 7 and 8 can hold 10 hours of supplies allowing you to have less max out when you sleep. On a personnal aspect, when I upgrade a farm, I forget about the time it take to upgrade and simply enjoy the bonus ressources.
