what does "farming" mean? I mean, not like raising crops and caring for livestock. Is it related?

No, raising crops and livestock is not a part of the playable P101 game, though it would be interesting to see. When farming is mentioned, it's implied that one or a group of pirates will battle a boss until it drops something or enough of something from the battles to satisfy the players. Common stops are Friar Sand, various bosses in Cool Ranch, and Fin Dorsal.
I'll be honest - when I farm, I'm mostly in it to hang out with friends and joke around. Most of the time, I don't get fairly lucky with the drops, though I get a decent amount of gold. Next time you hear about some boss-farming, you should try it!
There's also nautical farming, where two or more pirates get together to battle other ships so they can earn gold, ship XP, and ship parts. Nautical farming is very important to me, as I'm a level 57 pirate with level 30 Nautical. I try to attend as many nautical farming "runs" as I can.

Have fun!

I'm actually glad I'm not the only high level pirate with a low nautical level of like 32 or 33. And you could add Phule to list of handy hints.

There are a lot of bosses that drop certain gear, totems, charms, and rings. Farming means that you keep battling that boss until you get the gear or item you are looking for.

Also you can farm for gold. Friar Sand is a great candidate for this task, that or ships.

You can also Nautical farm with friends, where a bunch of people get together and sink ships, gaining gold, ship equipment and lots of nautical xp.

It's kind of like you want to get a certain drop, so you keep farming the creature or boss until you get it.
