    The Civilopedia states I can build a farm on any grassland or plains, with or without hills. Why can I only build a mine instead?

    you can't build farms on hills until later in the tech tree, with Civil Engineering

    That also looks like Tundra, not a grasslands or plains tile.

    That’s what I thought at first, but if you look at the tile to the right, you can see that the selected tile is grassland (some grassland spills over into the tile to the right in a way that it wouldn’t if the selected tile was tundra). It only looks like tundra because some of the tundra graphics from the bottom left are spilling over.

    Yes, definitely grassland, and also explains why the 1-tile island couldn't be farmed either, despite being plains. It was also hilly.

    This is why I keep yields on. Makes it a bit easier to tell what's a hill (although it's not foolproof due to natural diasters screwing with yields occaisonally)

    Watch your tongue! For years they braved patiently this never ending grumble about hillier hills ... sure, the other players may receive actually recognizable hills, but you'll be the one lisping the rest of your life!
