You really need to know the shape (square, rectangular, other?) and the dimensions.
The acreage is the area expressed in acres, an acre is 43560 square feet. If the farm is rectangular, the area (in square feet) is the product of the length and width of the rectangle. But the perimeter is twice the sum of the length and width.
For any given area, there are numerous combinations (from square to long and skinny) of length and width that would give you that area, but have different perimeters.
