- "<Player>... One as caring as you can easily be trusted with an axe that never breaks. May you use it to continue in your meticulous for the environment of <town name>. It is filled with my utmost gratitude for your efforts."
- — Farley, Animal Crossing
Farley (いずみじいや, Izumijīya, lit. "Fountain Old Man") is a character from the Animal Crossing series, only appearing in Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+. He and Franklin are the only characters in the entire series to not appear in either Doubutsu no Mori or Doubutsu no Mori+, instead making his debut in Animal Crossing. He lives in the town's fountain, and when the player has a perfect town, Farley will appear and give the player a golden axe. He is most likely the character who speaks to the player through the fountain. In City Folk, Serena plays a similar role to Farley's.
- In the Prima Animal Crossing Guide, Farley is never mentioned, despite the clear label in the front: "All 236 animals revealed," complete with a picture of Farley in place of a snowman.
- Farley and Joan are the only two characters with their own voice.
