Pay a visit to Holly in Town Center and pick up a handful of base seeds and a few bags of fertilizers, and you’re on your way to a green thumb in no time! In our guide, we’re explaining everything you need to know about farming in Fae Farm.

This Fae Farm crop guide is a work in progress – we’ll be updating it shortly once we’ve finished unlocking all the seasonal and Fae-variety crops!


How To Plant And Harvest Crops

In Fae Farm, you’ll learn to farm fairly early on from Mayor Merritt as she’s teaching you the lay of the land in Azoria. One of the first tasks she gives you on your Homestead in Chapter One is to plant some Turnip seeds on your new farm.

To do so, you’ll need to first put down some Basic Soil Beds someplace on your farm. There are several specific types of soil beds that you’ll unlock throughout the game, but for now, Basic Soil Beds will work just fine.

These can be made in the Construction menu when you’re standing on your Homestead property using one Silt, one Sand, and one Beech Log.

Beech Logs and Silt are accessible on your Homestead to begin with and can be found throughout Azoria should you run out at home – Beech Trees can be chopped to produce Beech Logs, and the piles of dirt can be dug up for Silt.

Sand acts much like Silt in that you dig it up, but you’ll need to go to the Beach and dig in the sand piles by the sea – those spit out Sand instead of Silt.

Once you’re ready to put down your garden, you can place as many Soil Beds as you’d like at one time, given that your farmer has the materials. Simply aim where your farmer is looking and place down a Soil Bed when you’re over the right spot.

When the soil is down, you’ll need crop seeds, which you can purchase from Holly in Town Center – she’s to the right of the market tables, between Will and Aspen.

She only sells Turnips, Cauliflower, and Beans at first, but she’ll begin selling more seeds as your Farming level increases – not all crops are for beginners.

With seeds in hand, head back home and walk into your Soil Beds to begin placing seeds. Once placed, they’ll need to be watered once per day (provided it’s not raining, which waters the crops for you), so begin as soon as you plant them to speed up the harvest.

From there, it’s a game of watering and waiting. Be sure to water your crops every day to ensure they grow in their usual time frame. If you miss a day of watering, your crops will be behind a day for harvest, which may mess with your seasonal growth plans, so be careful!

If you’d like to speed up the harvest time by one day, you can spread some Zippy Fertilizer on your crops.

Similarly, if you’d like a chance at growing additional crops per plant in each harvest, spread Bounteous Fertilizer instead.

Either way, you’ll watch your plants grow a bit each day until they look like entire vegetables instead of just plants. This means it’s time to harvest! To do so, just walk over your crops again and pick them – they’ll go straight into your Inventory once you do.

At first, you’ll be picking everything by hand, but you’ll soon unlock a magic spell that harvests all the crops in range.

Congrats on your first harvest! Now you can use those crops to either make meals on some of your cooking appliances to either eat or sell, you can sell the crops outright if you don’t want to wait the prep time, or you can use your Gardening Table to process one crop into three seeds of the same type.

Use Magic Crop Swap Fertilizer To Grow Seasonal Crops

As we mentioned above, Holly’s stock is limited when you first start playing Fae Farm. She’s got three types of seeds to sell at first, but your Almanac lists dozens of plants and seeds in the Gardening and Crops tab!

To unlock the other Azorian crops, you’ll need Magic Crop Swap Fertilizer. This can be either purchased from Holly or made on a Garden Bench using one Mulch, one Frog Sweat, and one Ammonite per bag.

When spread on any of your base crops, you stand a chance to grow a similar but entirely separate crop than what you planted. These always come from the same six base seeds, but the resulting transformed crop changes depending on the season.

However, since crops grow in groups from the same base seeds, seasonal crops have the same grow time as the base crop from which it was produced. For example, Turnips grow for four days, and so do the Radishes, Carrots, and Beets they produce through the year.

The progression from base crop to seasonal crop is almost entirely random, but a good way to grow more of these seasonal crops (which sell for more than their regular counterparts) is to turn them into seeds at the Garden Table.

Doing so follows the same pattern of three seeds for every crop you process, so once you’ve grown a seasonal crop, keep some seeds for next year so that you don’t have to go through the transformation process again.
