Add the farro, broth, diced tomatoes with liquid, and salt to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. (The farro will be halfway cooked.)
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey, bell pepper, onion, and cajun seasoning and sauté until the turkey is crumbled and well-done and onion is softened, about 5 minutes.
Stir the turkey mixture and beans into the farro mixture, cover, and continue to simmer until the farro is tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes to complete the cooking process. Then serve.
