Co-op Farming on Farmville

Updated on May 29, 2010

Co-op farming is a new feature on Farmville. It offers you the chance to work with your neighbors by completing jobs. As of right now, the jobs include growing grapes, morning glory, pumpkins, and patty pan squash and harvesting them in the time allotted.

To start a new Farmville Co-op job, you need to click on the icon above the gift box(pictured).

The next screen will show you all of the available jobs either your neighbors have already started, or jobs that you can start. After starting your Farmville co-op (or joining a neighbor’s) you will be able to post a status inviting your neighbors to help you complete the job. The more Farmville neighbors that you can get to help the better. A large number of neighbors will help you seed and harvest faster, therefore you have a better chance to get the gold medal.

Jobs:

Grapes are needed for the dye in a new clothing idea. Your earnings are:

Gold Medal: Harvest 1275 in 2 days. Earn 846 coins, 958 XP

Silver Medal: In 3 days. Earn 747 coins, 844 XP

Bronze Medal: In 4 days. Earn 622coins, 703 XP

Working on co-op jobs you also have the chance to gain more ribbons.

Ribbons:

Fabulous Foreman: Complete jobs with a gold medal as a starter

 

Best of the Rest: Win the MVP reward on co-op jobs (MVP can be earned by being the neighbor with the most harvested plants of the co-op)

 

Keep a look out for the farmer’s market that is rumored to be available at the end of April, Early May. Happy Farming!

      new glitch-your neighbor tries to join and your coop is not listed and you still need 200 plots planted, but they cannot get in to help. They tried going in on your recruitment post on their home page also and it says job not found. Now whats up with that?? Not too many in coop either because there are only 5 and I have been in one with 10. Explain problem please.

      Sorry about your problem jackie. I've heard about people not being able to help others but I haven't run into that yet. All mine have worked fine, it's just no one seems to want to help me very often. Sorry, wish I could help. Hopefully, Farmville knows they have that problem and are working to fix it ASAP.

      Once all crops have been seeded can you join another job to plant another crop while waiting for your neighbors plant to be harvest. Or do I have to wait for all job neighbors to harvest before joining another job.

      I read it's a glitch and that it is being worked on. I have this particular problem with two other friends of mine. We can't seem to always join the job together. Only one time did we successfully do a job, any other time we get an error. My thing is maybe that is the glitch
