The Right Sources to Get Stardew Valley Ancient Seed

The Ancient Seed is an Artifact that may be gained by digging up an Artifact Spot in Cindersap Forest or the Mountains (including the Quarry) or by opening Fishing Treasure Chests and Artifact Troves. It can also be obtained by Bugs, Grubs, Cave Flies, Mutant Flies, and Mutant Grubs (0.5 percent ). It can also be spotted chopping down foliage on Prehistoric Floors. Placing a packet of Ancient Ancient Seeds in a Deconstructor results in the production of an Ancient Seed.
