- Missing Alot Of Stuff


	Well, here is the basic setup.  Your parents are going away for 
two years, (actually it's two and a half) and they have left the farm to 
you.  Now its your job to fix it up and get it into working order by the 
time they return.  This may sound easy, but when you think about all the 
stuff that you have to do it's pretty overwhelming.  In addition to the 
normal farmer rountine with you crops, you have t raise livesstock, get 
marriesd, upgrade your house and eventually, (Is this legal?:) have 
children. And all this stuff is set up in about a two minute day.  Do 
you have what it takes to become a Master Farmer?


	So.  You decided to become a farmer.  Thats good, but first you 
have to learn the basics.

Button to talk to people, pick
up rocks, bushes, etc.

Each day consist of 10 hours, 15 seconds each.  Which means you have 
just about 2 minutes and 30 seconds to do your work.  This may seem like 
a long time, but when you consider it takes you about an hour (game 
time)to cross your field, time really flies.  Later on you can get a lot 
of stronger tools.  I will go into details in later sections.  To do 
most things you need stamina.  For more on stamina, see section --


This section contains every item or tool you can pick up in the game.
The stamina is a rough estimate.  There is no possible way to be sure 
what the exact numbers are, so bare with me.  I will not list the gold 
tools here, but rather in section --  Also the Vegetables will be listed

This is a list of all the vegetables you can grow and there 
prices/growing times.  All these things can be found at the flower shop.  
*NOTE* I did most of these prices from memory so if I have some wrong 
sorry.  If anybody wants to make a complete/accurate/better list you are 
welcome to send it to me.

Here's the setup:

Name: The name of the veggie.
Season: What season you can buy and grow it in.
Price: How much it can be bought for.

Growing Time: How lng it takes to grow.
Notes: Any sidenotes I might have.

Name: Turnip
Season: Spring
Price: 200
Sold: 150

the second spring.  By then how much money you should have would just be 
a waste on turnips.

Sold: 300
Growing: 8 days
Notes: While these take a few more days to grow than turnips they will 
be your best money maker in the second spring.

Name: Tomatoes
Season: Summer
Price: 200
Sold: 300

you keep watering them they will produce over and over in three day

Notes: These will be your absolute best crop through the entire game.  
Like the tomatoes they grow back in three days.

Price: 500
Sold: --
Growing: 7 days
Notes: i know this isn't a vegatable but I put them here because you can 
plant them.  There is no need to water grass.  And it will keep growing 
untill winter.  You have to replant in Spring.  You use this to feed 
your livestock and to beautify your farm.


This is a list of all the animals in the game except your cows and 
chickens.  Those will be listed in section 7.

Here's the setup:

Name: The name of the animal.
Use: What its purpose in the game is.
How to get: How to get it.
Location: Where you can find it.

Name: Dog (I name him Rowf)
Use: Besides telling you if you lost a chicken, none.
How to get: Beth gives him to you at the begining of the game.
Location: Wherever you put him, he will be in that general area, though 
he does tend to wander.

Name: Horse (I name her Angl, short for Angel)
Use: She is used to get around the farm quicker and she is also a 
portable shipping bin.
How to get: In the first Winter go to the road next to your house to get 
her, though she won't be big enough to ride till spring.
Location: Road

Name: Fox
Use: none that I can see.
How to get: You can't catch him.
Location: Once in a while if your in the Back hills you will see a fox 
run by.

Name: Rabbit
Use: If you grab it the hunter will ask you to let it go for 50 bucks.
How to get: Just pick it up.
Location: In the Back Hills.  He's only there once, I think.  So if you 
see him grab him.


Here is the livestock in the game.  now remember, time stops when your 
in a building, so don't freak out when you spend 10 minutes (real time)
In the barn milking your cows.

You can have as many chickens as you want outside but in the coop you 
can only have twelve.  The chickens can be bought full grown for 500, or 
grown from an egg you put in the incubator which is in the bottom right 
of the coop.  Chickens will not lay eggs for 7 days when you get them.  
Then when they do lay eggs put them in the shipping box on the bottom 
right of the coop.  If you miss a feeding or leave them outside in the 
rain they will not lay eggs for 3 days.  You can sell eggs for 50 bucks.
Chickens will not lay eggs outside but they will feed themselves.  If 
you leave them outside make sure they are in a fenced in area.  There 
are wild dogs around that will eat your chickens if their not fenced in, 
or the fence is broke.  Your dog will bark if you have lost a chicken 
during the night.  A healthy coop of chickens can make 600 bucks a day.

By far, the absolute best way to make money in the game.  In your barn 
you can have twelve cows.  I am not real sure whether you can get more 
than that.  I never tried. You can buy cows for a 1000 bucks.  That may 
seem expensive but it is well worth it.  If you want your cows to be 
happy (And remember, the happier the cow the more the milk) buy a brush 
and make sure you brush them each day.  Also talk to them.  When you 
name them make sure you remember which ones which so you don't waste 
stamina brushing a cow twice.  You can do what i do which makes it real 
easy name the Cow1, Cow2, Cow3, etc.  Then talk to the cow before you 
brush it so you know.  When you buy a cow it comes only half grown, so 
you have to feed it and brush it everyday.  Then when it doesstart 
producing milk it will only be a small. After about 3 weeks of being 
good to your cow it will produce more and more milk.  You can only milk 
a cow once a day.  You can leave the cows outside, but if there is a 
storm, your chances are they will get sick.  When the cows get sick you 
have about 2 and half weeks before they die.  You can cure them using 
medicine but this also gets them pregnant.  You can't milk them, when 
they are pregnant I don't think.  It takes about 30 days for the cow to 
be born, and another 30 for it to be full grown.  Try not to get a lot 
of cows.  The more cows you have in your barn the slower the game will 
go when you are in there.  If you have 12 cows it can take almost 30 
minutes to milk and brush them all.  Once you have a good amount of 
money sell some of your cows untill you have about 8.  Although it may 
slow down your game, an entire barn of contented cows can produce 3600 A 
DAY!!  Here is a list of the prices for your milk.

Small: 100
Medium: 200
Large: 300

Pretty simple I know but hey.  Well, good luck raising your animals.

hard to understand.  If your going for a challenge, go for Nina.


Here are some good tips for when you are dating a girl and when you get 

Give a girl at least two gifts a day.

Talk to her untill she starts saying two different things.

Dance with her at all the festivals.

Never give any other girls presents.

When you get married do not stay out pass six or else your wife will go 
to bed without you.  If you dont have a watch, 6:00 is when the music 
stops playing.  And the shipper comes at five.  So at 5:00 you have 
fifteen seconds to get home.

If you want a baby be REAL good to your wife.

When you get a baby hold him alot.


There are alot of secrets in the game.  Here are the ones I found.  If 
you send me a secret I will try it.  If it does not work, I will put it 
up in the rumors section.  Once I have verified that it does work I will 
Switch it over to here.

Golden Tools:

Gold Scynth- Sometime in the summer of the first year a guy will tell 
you he heard a noise.  Go to the bottom right and you will find a well.  
Go down it and there will be two elves.  Talk to one and he will ask if 
you like your Scynth.  Say yes and he will upgrade it for you.  The gold 
scynth will cut down all the grass in the squares around you.  It takes 
5 stamina.

Gold Plow- In the Spring of the second year you will find a elf in front 
of your yard.  He will ask you for food.  Bring him some and he will 
upgrade your Plow.  The golden plow will will plow six squares in a 
straight line.  The golden plow takes 5 stamina.

Gold Axe- Sometime in the Winter of the first year you will have an 
earthquake.  Go to the Back Hills and the boulder that was blocking the 
path before is gone.  Swing your axe at the pond and a fairy will drop 
down and asked if you dropped the gold axe.  Say no and she will give it 
to you.  The gold axe can cut a stump in one hit.  It takes 5 stamina.

Gold Hammer- In the Fall of the first year one of the construction 
workers will ask to borrow your hammer.  Say yes and he will upgrade it.  
The gold hammer can smash a big rock in one hit.  it takes 5 stamina.

Sprinkler- In the begining of Summer of the second year the Hardware 
shop owner will tell you he is building a new invention.  Go to the 
Hardware shop on the 22 and he will have the sprinkler.  I think you can 
trade the water can for it.  The sprinkler waters in all the squares 
around you.  It takes 5 stamina.

Seed Secrets:

Snowflower- In the harvest festival the peddler will offer to sell you 
the seed of snowflower.  You can buy it both years so don't worry if you 
don't worry if you can't afford it the first.  If you do buy it in the 
winter go to the top of the mountain and plant it.  when it grows you 
can sell it to the peddler.

Magic beans- If you sell a cow later in the game.  Before the Livestock 
dealer comes to your house he will offer to trade the cow for some magic 
beans. (Sound Familiar?:) If you plant the beans on the top of the 
mountain a vine will grow up.  When you get there walk up to the golden 
chicken and talk to it.  It will give you a golden egg which you sell 
for 20,000 Bucks.

Bell Tree- Later in the game, a peddler will ask you if you would like 
to buy a money tree from him for 2,000 bucks.  Say yes and he will plant 
a tree with bells all over it.  It doesn't give you money.  What it does 
is calls your cows in from all over the farm.


Both of which i gained inspiration from their work.
