In order for the area to calculate automatically, there has to be a polygon pasted or drawn into the layer, hence you would have to go into Edit mode on the layer. Once the layer is saved and closed, then the attribute will refresh and calculate the area to display in the legend. Is this what is happening for you?

On a side note, as I ran into this issue with another user recently, if you are running on Windows Vista or newer OS > close out of Farm Works > right-click the Farm Works icon > go to Properties > Compatibility tab > verify the box to "Run this program as an administrator" is checked - if it's not, check it > Apply > ok > restart you computer. Then come back in and test the area layer.
