Tips on "Farmville" (A Facebook Game Application)

Updated on June 21, 2011

Show Me the Money

Are you looking to achieve maximum profits in minimum time on Farmville? Here is a listing of the best things to plant/tend to make maximum money.

Please note that I assume you are already familiar with basic game play.

Also, I deal only with those items which can be bought with coins won through normal game play; I do not deal with items bought with Farmville bucks, because you have to buy those with real cash (which I don't do).

Update 12/30/09 - Unfortunately, Farmville has gotten so graphics-intense that I can no longer play it on my pitiful dial-up connection, so I can no longer update this site with new crop, animal and tree information. If I manage to get access to a better connection in the future, I will start playing again and update this page.

A Brief Note on Farm Organization

Everything on your farm takes up 1 or more units of area. Crops are planted in a 3x3 area (for convenience's sake, I'll call one crop plot an acre). You can buy extra land as the game progresses, so the total size of your farm is not set in stone. What is set in stone, however, is that you will not have an even number of acres; there will always be two units in width and length that cannot be planted with a crop.

All animals but horses and cows take up 1 unit; cows and horses take up a 2x1 space.

All trees take up 1 unit of space.

It takes 15 cents to plow. In order to calculate profit margins on crops, I have subtracted the cost of the seed and the cost of the plowing from the sale price, then have divided by the number of hours it takes to mature.

Making Your Farm Functional

Crops are generally the most profitable thing you can grow on your farm. While there are some trees which will yield better than crops, especially early in the game, they all require that you plant nine trees in a 3x3 crop area in order to achieve that level of profitability. The problem with that is that when you have that many trees that close together, you can't see the fruit on most of them, so it's hard to know when to harvest. It's easier (and requires less clicking) to harvest a crop on that acre.

However, as I noted above, you will always have a small area around your farm where you cannot plant a crop. I use this area for trees and livestock, so that every bit of space on my farm is turning a profit.

Trees grow to the top and left of your viewing area. It is therefore best to plant your trees to the top and left of your farm. If you plant them at the bottom or to the right, they will obscure some of your crops if you plant right up against them.

Trees are more profitable than animals, but animals are shorter and do not obscure the fruits of the trees, therefore, in my wasted space, I plant one row of trees and then have a row of animals in front of them. This is much easier and more functional than two rows of trees.

It's wise to have some trees and animals in addition to your crops, because neither trees nor animals go to waste. If you leave your crop in the field too long, though, it will go to waste and you will have no profit. If you were poor to begin with, you can run completely out of money, having nothing with which to re-plow and start over again. Trees and animals, although they are not nearly as profitable as crops, are like a savings account; if your crop ever fails, you can always harvest your trees and animals and get enough capital back together to start over.

Because your crops can go to waste in the field, it's important that you time your harvests correctly. For instance, don't plant a 4-hour crop right before you go to bed for the night; it will be wasted by the time you get up. Likewise, if you are going on vacation, don't plant a crop at all until you get back.

If you will be an infrequent visitor to your farm, go with a tree or animal which needs to be harvested infrequently and will not go to waste. Nothing is worse on a profit margin than waste.

Cash Crops

The following list shows you the most profitable crops for a particular length of time. Depending on your game level, some of these crops may not be currently available to you, so use whatever you can at the moment for maximum profit.

All of the crops' profits are calculated by subtracting the cost of seed and plowing from the sale value, and then that's divided by the number of hours it takes to mature. That lets us know how much money we're making on a crop per hour.

Example: It's better to make 2.5 cents profit on a strawberry acre every hour than 65 cents profit on one wheat crop every three days, because the strawberries will net 180 cents in three days, versus only 65 cents in three days on the wheat.

The only reason why you would want to plant the wheat versus the strawberries is if you are going away for a long weekend and won't be able to harvest for three days. At which point, a 50 cent harvest is better than no harvest at all.

2 hours - 5.5 cents/hr raspberries

4 hours - 6.5 blueberries; 2.5 strawberries

6 hours - 3.3 aloe vera

8 hours - 7.25 tomatoes; 2.875 pumpkins

12 hours - 6.25 carrots; 3 rice

16 hours - 6.75 coffee

1 day - 6.875 sunflowers; 3.208 peppers; 1.375 soybeans

2 days - 4.5 yellow bell peppers; 2.75 pineapples; 1.375 squash; 1 eggplant

3 days - 2.986 corn; 2.708 potatoes; 1.625 cotton; 0.903 wheat

4 days - 2.27 watermelons; 1.24 artichokes

I have not obtained complete access to all of the crops yet, so I will amend this list as I level up and find ever-more profitable crops (for the curious, I am currently at Level 25).

Misc. Tips

Animals and trees have an expensive upfront purchase price. If you decide to get rid of them, however (sell them), they will only sell for the price of one harvest; you will not get your initial investment back. So don't buy a lot of something that you then have to turn around and get rid of (unless you want experience-see next tip).

Turn cash into experience. You will get experience points for every tree you plant or animal that you place. But if you sell the tree or animal, the experience points are not taken away. So you can plant a lot of trees, then turn around and sell them and plant some more. The best thing to use in this case is a cherry tree; at 45 cents per experience point gained, it's the cheapest of all the animals and trees to get experience with.

Crops seem to go to waste in proportion to their growing time. So a crop of raspberries (2 hours to maturity) will go to waste faster than watermelons (4 days to maturity). From what I have seen, a 2-hour crop will go to waste about 2 hours after it has matured (4 hours from plant time). This may or may not infer that everything goes to waste at double its maturity rate (e.g. if it matures in one day, it will go to waste one day after maturity--two full days from when you planted it).

In the beginning, when I had a small farm, I planted my entire farm at once. But now that I have expanded twice, I find that harvesting, plowing and planting the entire thing in one go is tedious. Instead, I plant half of it with one crop and half with another (or plant the same crop, but halfway through the first planting's growing time), and get them maturing at varying times. This does not increase my profits, but does make playing the game more fun and less tedious.

For those wondering about the tractor, harvester and seeder, they will plow, harvest and plant (respectively) four acres with one click. They use 1 unit of gas per acre. Your gas tank holds 150 units. All three machines run on the same tank of gas, so if you only want to use machines to farm, you should have a 50-acre plot.

A lot of people have asked about the gold things that spring up when you plow. As far as I can tell, those are coins that you're plowing up. I haven't yet determined how much they are worth. I have seen them appear when using both the hoe and the tractor.

      To have great success in Farmville the main key is to firstly upgrade and expand your farm as early as possible, this will allow you to plan more crops and make huge amounts of coins but more importantly, XP.

      You will want to plant crops that are ready to harvest after a short amount of time. This means you will harvest more often and collect more XP.

      Also gain as many neighbors as you can so that all your crops are always fertilized!

      This is a very good lens, also check out www.Farmville-Millionaire.com for more Farmville tips if you have time.

      Cheers,

      The main secret for success in Farmville is definately getting as many neighbors as possible. But not just that, you need to exchange gifts and fertilize often. more info here: Farmville Tips.

      I grew my farmville from having loooots of neighboors, which I invited posting a request on a facebook page/group made specialy for that.

      I used to login daily and exchange all the gifts I could. Now I don't have that much time anymore, but I login many times every week.

      I started playing Famville the begining of January, by the beginning of February I was 60% through obtaining most of my blue ribbons and I had my 24 x 24. I have neighbors that still don't have 24 x 24 on higher levels than me. All I did was plant crops that are ready in hours instead of days. I worked on my upgrades before I worked on buying buildings. When I upgraded, I added more plots and trees. Once I got my 24 x 24, I then focused on working towards buying buildings.

      Also, why buy the trees or animals when they can be gifted. Now that you can wish for items, and there are trees and animals in mystery boxes, there is really no need to buy trees. I have yet to buy a tree. I found that the key importance to my method is having a lot of neighbors which everyone seems to be adding from the farmville page on facebook. Also helps now that you can find gas when plowing neighbors yards, and you get gas for completely collections once you pass level 10. Makes the job less ominous, and keeps the game relatively un-zombie like. I've never paid for gas and I am at + 53 refils right now.

      To clear a few things up for you:

      The 'Gold thing' that spring up when you plow, Are coins, Worth 100 Coins each.

      Achievements are great for experiance and coins: And many can be achieved quite easily when you have enough coins (Like own 150 Items - Haybales at 100 Coins each)

      But good tips basically :-)

      When you click on your award button by market you can see what all you need to acheive to get more money. Gifts are good to give to get and yes you get some really cool profitable things in them. Also the more neighbors the more you get for free and other awards. If you go to the bottom of page on FV and click on support there are q&a's on there about why you want to do things...explore that too.

      @anonymous: well if you have enough neighbors, you are able to increase your farmville farm's size, making it more profitble

      You will notice that your farmer shows up in the middle of your screen ever time you log into your farm and then follows you around as you work the farm. This takes up so much time. If you take 4 fences and fence her/him in, so she can't get out, right in the middle of the farm you will be able to harvest, plow, and tend animals much faster.

      The dairy farm also allows u to place 20 cows inside and milk all the cows with one click.

      The coins you see popping out of the ground when you use either the hoe or the tractor is the amount of gold it has cost you to plow that piece of land....so if you see 15 gold pop up...its just cost you 15 gold to plow that land...sorry if this has posted twice...:S

      I plant usually the same crop but at different times, so I can run my machinery on one tank of gas, it covers a 12x2 section

      You get easy experience points for growing crops, opening up items quicker & getting cash, at first you might want to suck up as much room as you can buy just planting

      Sending gifts, adding neighbours & fertilizing their crops, will earn rewards of a neat item, open an item (sometimes) & get bonus cash

      Well, on the coin flipping up when you plow, It actually gives you 100 coins. If you look at your account as you plow and you get one of those coins, (which don'r come around too often) you will see that your acount went up by 85 coins, which means you got 100 and spent 15 on the plowing.

      @anonymous: Which blue ribbon? If its the Not Spoiled Gifted one then you just have to have 21 different items in your giftbox.. not 21 cows or whatever, but 21 DIFFERENT items. That means that if you have 4 cows and 2 banana trees, etc, you can place 3 cows and 1 banana tree, just be sure to leave 1 of everything you have been gifted in there until you reach 21 (Check out the ribbon next to the Market button, it explains all the requirements for each different ribbon)

      If you want to experiment with crops, keep a small "experimental patch" just for them. Makes the game less tedious and also helps you know exactly how long you can go before withering, It's also nice for crops you really can't afford to plant yet wholesale, so it pays for itself in higher returns.

      [in reply to Thelma] You need different kind of gifts. So, for example, if you have 2 horses and 3 cows, it only counts as two different gifts. Animals, trees and objects all count... you only have to wait enough before putting one of each of your gifts to use to obtain the blue ribbon.

      anonymous 7 years ago

      Assuming your talking about the not spoiled ribbon, or so i think it is called, all you need is 30 "unique" gifts. So if you have 2 of any particular item, just get rid of one... until you have 30 different things in your gift box. When you send someone else a gift, just type a message in asking for what you need. This usual will work after a while... esspecially if you have nice neighbors ;) Hope this helps.

      [in reply to Thelma] Different ribbons require a different number of UNIQUE gifts in your gift basket. For example, to gain one of the ribbons, you need to have 9 UNIQUE (different) gifts in your basket. It doesn't matter what you have in your gift basket as long as each item is different from the other

      You dont need certain gifts, you just neeed a certain amount of unique gifts. unique means different, i.e. if you have ten green hay bales, that counts as one unique gift.

      quote:"lot of people have asked about the gold things that spring up when you plow. As far as I can tell, those are coins that you're plowing up. I haven't yet determined how much they are worth. I have seen them appear when using both the hoe and the tractor."

      It gives 100 gold.

      [in reply to Thelma] It doesnt matter what gift you have for the Not Spoiled, Gifted so long as they are unique. for example a yellow hale bay is not unique but a black, orange or violet hale bay is. and if you have double of a gift it only counts as one. adopted animals count as gifts as long as they stay in your gift box. its best to have a neighbor with a high level because they can give you the most unique items while your lower level neighbors take care of the lower level gifts. hope this helped!

      Add chazterdamaster@hotmail.com on facebook with message 'farmville' and I'll accept then make you a neighbour, thanks!!

      Also, the best way to get xp with your money is plowing then deleting the square, it's 15 coins per xp point. :)

      [in reply to Thelma] I think you need to let the gifts build up in your gift box, before putting them out on your farm.

      You need to leave 21 DIFFERENT gifts in you box, the system should then give you the Blue Ribbon.

      The cheapest way to get experience points is to plow land then delete it. That's 15 coins per xp point.
