It accepts both "...ar an fheirm" and "...ar an bhfeirm". Which dialect uses which? I'm assuming the standard is the eclipsed form.

Both are acceptable in the standard now. Ulster Irish lenites, and the others eclipse.

I thought i read somewhere that feirmeoir and feirm were spelt feilm and feilmear in connemara. Is this not correct?

Why isn't "sa" accepted here?

sa replaces i + an (which in English would be "in the," not "on the").
