I believe the only place it can be played is on a computer via facebook

    Yes you can. You can use the farmville express app, but that is next to useless. The problem is that ipads do not support flash sites, but you can easily overcome this.

    Go to the app store and download a free browser called photon. Once you have installed it, open it up and on the top right of the page there is a symbol which looks like a lightning flash ( it is next to the normal round settings cog). when you click on the lightning symbol a box comes up saying " Connecting to streaming session for flash websites". Once that has done type www.facebook.com into the address bar and log into your facebook account, you will see your wall as normal. Choose a post to reply to and go to your farm as you normally would. You will have the full website. Don't type farmville into the address bar because that would just take you to the useless farmville express.
    Each time you open the photon browser don't forget to click on the lightning symbol to start the flash browsing.. Since I have discovered this browser, I have been able to play Farmville on my ipad when I am away from my main computer.

    Now Photon is not free. Instead of it you can use Puffin :)

    Yes! Puffin is free. I installed it yesterday. There are two versions and one of them is free :)

    I have both versions of Puffin - very poor performance. It crashes all the time. It use to be good but for the last year it’s crappy.

    Can you play FarmVille on Photon without continual crashing?

    I did read on FB that people are having issues trying to use puffin to play FV ... so maybe they have changed something and it isnt compatable anymore ...

    I'm passing on information that I read, I have no personal experience with iPad

         Apple blocked the Puffin app update on iOS to protect its Safari browser. 
    
         A light browser like Dolphin or Maxthon or Brave or Slimjet might work.
    

    I hope that is helpful to iPad users
