Farmerama is a browser-based, free to play, mmorpg where you live as a humble farmer. Make the best of life and carefully tend your greatest asset: your land.
Theres a farmhouse, barn, mill, water tower and manure pile on this field for you to use. Breathe in the fresh country air and starting farming. Theres lots of work to be done and no time to rest! Your field is divided into a grid. On this grid, you can farm your land, plant trees or raise animals (see Livestock for more info about animals).
Customers swing by the old farmhouse every once in awhile to order goods from you. The more orders you accept, the more delivery points you will rack up. Delivery points will create a constant flow of customers who will want to buy your homegrown veggies, fruit and meat.
Everything you produce on your farm is stored in your barn. As soon as youve harvested or mixed animal feed, youll be able to see your goods in the barn. You can also see how many animals you have here. Every farmer only has one barn in Farmerama. Although this building cant be expanded, you can store as many items as you want here, because itll never fill up.
Animals also get hungry. As soon as youve put a roof over their head, mix some feed in the mill for them to eat. Just remember, animals can be picky. For every animal, youll have to mix a different kind of feed which can sometimes be made up of one or two types of plants. Your animals cant feed directly off your produce, their food must be mixed at the mill. You can only mix feed for those animals youve built housing for on your farm. It will take a certain amount of time to make feed. You can only produce one kind of feed at a time.
The water tower
You have a water tower on your farm in order to provide your plants and animals with water. The water tower can only hold a certain amount of water. Once youve used up its supply of water, you can refill it with Country coins. The water tower cant be moved. If you need more water, you can also buy additional water tanks and put it wherever you want on your farm.
The manure pile
Aint no doubt about it, the manure pile is one stinky place. But you need fertilizer for your fields so that theyll grow and prosper. Fertilized fields can also withstand bad weather better. Keep an eye on your manure pile and make sure that you dont run out of fertilizer. Youll have to clean out your animals stalls and pens on a regular basis, so this shouldnt be a problem. Do your part to keep nature in balance!
The city is the source for all your farming needs. You will find seeds, animal housing and trees here. You can sell your produce for a good price and trade with fellow players at the Farmers Market. You can pick up your mail and send packages at the post office, or visit the bank and make a deposit to your account. If you sign up to become a premium farmer, you can visit the lookout tower to get either a lookout or haverster to lend you a hand of the farm.
The community flower patch is an initiative formed by farmers to help create community cohesion. To join this program, all farmers have to do is:
Plant a flower using a seed from your flower crops.
Then send a message to a friend asking them to join the community flower patch.
Now its up to the invited player to continue spreading the love. Once this player has accepted the invite, he/she can plant a flower in the community flower patch and ask another player to join.
