Tile is definitely more durable, but sure like hardwood in a farmhouse style.  As they provided good comments below, I would look at your use/wear and tear and determine from there.  Best Regards.

Tile would be a good option for durability in the foyer. Select something that is an informal style that will fit in with the rest of your home's farmhouse style and decor. If the foyer is surrounded by wood flooring, select a tile color that will blend well with the wood. This should present a  durable yet pleasing combination for potential buyers.

What is there now?  If you're looking to maintain the original look, similar materials should be used.  If you're updating, tile is generally a better choice as it will not show wear and tear as much as wood.

Try to send a consistent message as far as style.   From a utility standpoint, tile  or slate  tends to hold up better to mud, sand and whatever else folks track in. Use excellent quality materials that complement what you already have and avoid anything unduly formal.  
Good luck! .

Really hard to say without seeing the room.  How big is the foyer? Would wood have to match up to existing wood flooring?  Tile would probably be the most popular choice, but its hard to say.
