Try These Tips to Become a Farming Master in Stardew Valley

Here are some new tips that I can suggest to you to try in Stardew Valley farming. If you are a new player, everything here will new and very useful to you. But if you are a stardew valley pro, then you might want to skip this because I assume you know most of the tips I will be giving here.

10. Make sure to plan ahead

Make sure that you plan ahead, every season has 28 days. which means is exactly four weeks in every season. As you may have realized there are certain seeds that grow in every season. There’s only a handful that overlap into the next month, such as wheat that grows in both summer and fall.

Do consider the timing of your crops as any crop that does not fully grow before the end of the season will die. plan out which crops you need for recipes or to use on your farm and to also plan out which crops you want to grow for more gold to be sold.

9. Bundles in the community center

The next one is considering the bundles that are in the community center. If you are completing the community center instead of the Joja mart way there are items and season specific. even though you shouldn’t rush completing the community center, one of the greatest bundles to complete is the pantry bundle. This will unlock the greenhouse on your farm which allows you to grow any crop in any season inside. but to complete this bundle the crops required will be season specific. taking note of these crops to prepare yourself for each season. Otherwise, you will have to wait to the next year to appear to grow these crops. I plan on making a breakdown of these bundles so that you will grow what is required efficiently for each season to hopefully complete this bundle earlier on.

8. Take care of your animals

Remember not to forget feeding the animals. if you are planning to have crops and bonds on your farm, be sure to keep them happy and fed. this can not only affect the amount of produce they produce on your farm, but also the quality of it too. for example, mill compared to the lunch milk. the animal’s friendship works very similar to dating a bachelor or Bachelorette in Stardew Valley. the animals have five hearts and will need 1000 friendship points for five hearts. petting them daily gains your 15 friends your points. milking or shearing them grants you five friendship points and having them eat grass outside gains you eight friendship points. however not feeding them loses you 20 friendship points and not petting them loses you between five to 10 friendship points. taking care of them will determine their produce quality, so always make time to take care of your animals every morning.

7. Fertilizer Knowledge

If you have been playing Stardew Valley for a bit, you should know that there are three different types of fertilizers. normal fertilizer, retaining soil and speed grows. Each of these have two variations to them or three different variations if you work the 1.5 update. knowing and using all three of these will make that much more of a difference. Just like in Tip Number 10, timing is important and being efficient in your timing is important. if you plan on growing certain crops quicker then speed growth is your choice. However, if you want there to be a chance for crops to be watered overnight to save you time and energy then maintaining soil is probably a better choice. basic fertilizer or its better equivalent quality fertilizer are great early fertilizers to increase the crops quality, thus increasing its value in sold, which in turn will make you more money. just like crops fertilizers will generally disappear into the next season unless the crop that you are growing grows into the next season then the fertilizer will stay.

6. Utilize your farm space

If you have chosen a farm that isn’t the normal standard farm, this may apply to you may be a little more limited, which means there is more planning required. Be sure to use every space on your farm as efficiently as you can. If a sprinkler for example isn’t reaching a certain crop, maybe move the sprinkler into a different place, or maybe craft a better sprinkler. If there is some empty space on your farm. Why not use it for some crops? I always suggest you use sprinklers which were available in level two, level six and level nine. Obviously, the Iridium sprinkler at level nine is the better version as it covers more space. either plan on making a bunch of these or buy them once every Friday from Krobus in the sewers if you’ve unlocked them. restrict yourself from having to water your crops so you have more time to explore the depths of Pelican town.

5. Have a knowledge of when Winter is coming.

Winter is the season that most Stardew Valley player’s dislike. not only will it interrupt a lot of the farm situations, but it can also decrease your chances of making a lot of money on your farm. Obviously, any task of other farms such as fishing and mining will be more useful during this season. There are some things you can plan before and when the season starts. for example, grass will disappear from the farm if not eaten by animals or if you haven’t used the scythe on them. Be sure to remember to use your scythe prior to winter. Also, the animals will not leave their respective buildings so be sure to buy them a hay for 2000 goal from Marnie to ensure the animals are kept happy during winter. Upgrade your tools and your buildings whilst grabbing supplies and preparing yourself for spring.

4. Maximize the sell value of your crop

It may be fun to make your farm look pretty using different crops, but every crop in the game will sell for different amounts and the stock quality rating will also affect that keep these in mind when planting your crops. If your crops are used for making money and not used for recipes, keep in mind which crops are best to sell. for example, for spring rhubarb in your second year is the most valuable crop to sell. the seed is bought for 100 gold from the Oasis and has a base sell price of 220 Gold which is 120 Gold profit minimum per crop, otherwise it will be cauliflower which the seed is sold for 80 gold and has a base sell of 175 Gold which is a 95 Gold base sell price. compared to parsnip which has a base sell price of 10 gold per crop. These other crops sound like a better idea.

3. Energy consumption.

This might be a no brainer, but energy consumption in Stardew Valley is quite important. Depending on what your plans are for the day, you may need to equip yourself with fruit to sustain yourself throughout the day. For example, if your farm has no sprinklers, but many crops you may find yourself sitting on your farm watering your crops for half the day, meaning you have less time to go fishing or to go to the mines or to love your favorite character. Be sure to keep your energy usage on your farm to a minimum, or keep random food handy with you. plan out your days and get off your phone to enjoy the day.

2. Chests for a better organization.

Using chest not only a great way to organize your items efficiently, but can also assist in your daily if not seasonal tasks. such as having a chest of items or crop specific for each season is a great way to avoid confusion and running around your farm. Keep your chest for things like going to the mines or certain communality like carving pieces or minerals. I highly suggest having a space initial specific for these chests. Be sure to check these regularly in case there are items needed for the museum or crops that have no other use than to be sold for a profit. being organized with your items and your chests can make that much more of a difference.

1. Utilizing the Greenhouse

As mentioned previously, there’s no need to rush to the community center if this is your chosen route of gameplay. but the greenhouse can be very beneficial especially earlier on. I will suggest reserving the greenhouse for crops that sell for a long as any crop can grow within the greenhouse at any time. The spacing of the greenhouse is a 12 by 10 spacing. However, sprinklers can be placed inside and they can be placed around the crop flooring, giving you the space to place down either 16 quality sprinklers to cover 108 crop spaces or 6 Iridium sprinklers to cover 116 crop spaces. If you’ve gotten yourself the 1.5 update. The best layout for your greenhouse is shown below.

As you can see that is five Iridium sprinklers with pressure nozzles on them to reach 119 crops. Crops. other crops such as coffee beans, cranberries, and blueberries are also a great idea as they will continue to produce crops even after harvesting. also, fruit trees can grow indoors and they will always produce fruit no matter the season. keep preserve jars around the trees to preserve your fruit to make even more income from them.
