I've built above ground farms in this version. It still shows the message, but you can build it and dwarves will plant crops.

It's just a display issue. You can build the farms and plant non-underground crops just fine.

If it actually won't let you build the plot, it's because of an obstruction (check for trees/boulders/etc.). It gives the warning about lack of mud, but the plot will build and work normally.

"Can't build farmplots above ground on soil, 'mud required for underground farm 'msg received"

 can be changed to

"farm plots above ground on soil: 'no mud/soil for farm' msg received, plot can be constructed"

still in .25
