Is there a way to have coal farms?

    Not yet. Coal is made up largely of carbon, with trace amounts of oxygen, sulfur, hydroge, and other elements.  Coal begins as layers of decomposed plant matter existing near water. Over millions of years it is buried, and compressed and eventually becomes coal. In essence it is a non-renewable resource. If there were a way to speed this process up, then coal farming would be feasible. However, it is probably for the best that we allow fossil fuels to run out or become obsolete. If you consider what we have done to the environment up until this point with existing coal and oil reserves, the implication of an unending supply of that fuel means there is no end to the level of damage we are currently inflicting.
