Check SQL Server Books Online for this database specific question and examples. Specifically research the create table statement. Here is how to set up the foreign key (which is what you call a reference). Add this at the end of your column list:

The first column list (after the foreign key) is the list of columns in the new table corresponding to the primary key columns in the 'parent' table. The references is of course, the parent table.
It should look something like this:
...
feed_type int,
farmer_name varchar(50),
