Farming BasicsEdit

As of 7/20/12, players can grow crops at their house to generate additional Gold or Energy. After completing the first mission of A Market for All and accepting the second mission, players are given 4 Dirt Plots to place in their House area with which to grow Crops. There are two types of Crops: Energy Crops and Gold Crops which drop their respective items when harvested.

Upon completing the second mission of A Market for All - "Fresh Produce" - Farmer McDonald will offer Daily Farming Quests and sell additional Dirt Plots for Gold and Fertilizer (makes your plants grow much faster) for Bush Bucks.  Each unit of Fertilizer cuts growing time by 1 hour per bag.

In game buddies can come to your ranch and use up to 5 actions per day to assist your crops, either by contributing to a larger crop payout or by restoring crops that have withered. Each friend click on a growing plant increases the yield by 10%.  10 friends can help per plot up to a maximum of a 100% increase.

Dirt PlotsEdit

You can only purchase additional Dirt Plots equal to the number of area expansions you've bought for your House up to a max of 20 plots (16 expansions).

Available CropsEdit

There are two types of Crops: Energy Crops and Gold Crops, which drop their respective items when harvested. Once crops mature you have 24 hours to harvest them or they'll wither (based on when you planted them and how long they normally take to grow). Withered crops can be brought back to life if a friend visits your ranch and uses their daily actions on your crops. Initially you only have access to Strawberries and Corn, but more crops unlock as you level (see chart below).

Energy Crops are typically fruits and provide a certain amount of Energy when harvested.
