Default What is the Fishing Boat?

Q: What is the Fishing Boat?
A: The Fishing Boats are used to make it easier to fish. These tools use fuel.





The Fishing Boat (2x2) allows you to catch up to 4 fish each time you click.
** The Fishing Boat (2x2) can NOT be used on other farms when hired **

The Fishing Boat (3x3) allows you to catch up to 9 fish each time you click.

The Fishing Boat (5x5) allows you to catch up to 25 fish each time you click.

The Turbo Fishing Boat allows you to fish each body of water with a single click.

The Turbo Fishing Boat (4x4) allows you to fish up to 16 overlapped waters in a squared area the size of 1 plowed field with a single click.

The Turbo Fishing Boat (8x8) allows you to fish up to 64 overlapped waters in a squared area the size of 4 plowed fields with a single click.

The Turbo Fishing Boat (12x12) allows you to fish up to 144 overlapped waters in a squared area the size of 9 plowed fields with a single click.

The Turbo Fishing Boat (16x16) allows you to fish up to 256 overlapped waters in a squared area the size of 16 plowed fields with a single click.

The Turbo Fishing Boat (20x20) - allows you to catch all fish in a squared area the size of 5x5 plow fields using a new method of fishing.
When selecting the new Turbo Boat 20x20 instead of the Eye in the bottom right you will see the current tool icon >>



When you click on that icon, you will see a vertical toolbar with 3 buttons.
The one in the top (Highlight) selects the old method of highlighting each individual item.
The one in the middle selects the New Method (Extent) of highlighting only the perimeter of the area where the tool will operate. Instead of highlighting all waters, this new method will just highlight a fixed squared section of the farm which works faster and with less manual mistakes. When you use this method you will briefly see "Extent mode selected" in white lettering near the top of the game screen.
The bottom button closes the box.



Also, the tool will always operate as if the Eye was closed, meaning, the recently worked items will be hidden once the work on them is completed..

The Turbo Fishing Boat (24x24) - allows you to catch all fish in a squared area the size of 6x6 plow fields and uses the new faster method of harvesting as described above.

The Turbo Fishing Boat (28x28) - allows you to catch all fish in a squared area the size of 7x7 plow fields and uses the new faster method of harvesting as described above.

The Turbo Fishing Boat (32x32) - allows you to catch all fish in a squared area the size of 8x8 plow fields and uses the new faster method of harvesting as described above.




To use tools bigger than the Fishing Rod to fish, the tool must be on the farm or in storage.

You can do 2 things. . .
  • If the tool is on your farm, you can click on the tool and click "Fish" and then click on the waters.
  • However, it is better to place all tools into your Storage. That way you can access all your tools from the Yellow Tool box, on any of your farms, without having to move the tool from farm to farm. Once they are in Storage, you can click on the Yellow Toolbox to open it, and then click on the tool you want to use.
  • NOTE: Farm Cash Tools do not count towards your storage capacity, you can store as many of those as you want.

You can also use the fishing rod to fish 1 at a time if you don't own the tools. To select the fishing rod, click on the Yellow Toolbox and select the tool.

Default What is the Manure Spreader?

Q: What is the manure spreader?

A: There are 3 manure spreaders, the red one, and the orange one and the green one. These are used to fertilise your farm.



Red manure Spreader ONLY fertilizes crops, and will produce 2 boxes of harvest instead of 1.

Orange Manure Spreader takes on the job of the red one, and also fertilizes trees and flowers too giving you 2 boxes of harvest instead of 1,

Green Manure Spreader - This takes on the job of both the red and orange manure spreaders AND allows you to fertilize All farms or a selection of farms with a single click.

NOTE: If you already own the Red Manure Spreader and you buy the Orange Manure Spreader, then every time you fertilize a farm using ANY of them, crops, flowers and trees will be fertilized. Fertilized crops, trees, flowers will produce 2 boxes when harvested and chop trees, 2 log piles when chopped.

When you upgrade to the Orange Manure Spreader ONLY the orange one will show up the yellow tool box, as it will do the job of the red one as well. You MUST own the red one in order to get the orange one. If you then also upgrade to the Green Manure Spreader, then this is the only one that will show up in the yellow toolbox, it will take on the jobs of both the red and orange manure spreaders.

Notice you only need to fertilize a farm once, with any of the Spreaders, it doesn't matter which. The farm will remain fertilized for 72 hours.

How do I collect manure?
You need to have a Pigsty ( facility section on the store) to collect the manure from your pigs (which are a gift only item). The collection process works the same as if you were harvesting animals, the difference is that in this case, the manure from the pigs is stored in your Manure Spreader tool. Each pig produced 1 Manure Unit every 12 hours. You must own the spreader in order for you to be able to collect the manure from the pigsty.

How do I fertilize?
You need 50 manure units to fertilize a farm. To fertilize a farm, click on the Manure Spreader tool and select 'Fertilize Farm'. Once a farm is fertilized it will remain fertilized for the next 3 days.

All crops still growing (not ready to harvest) will be fertilized. All new crops planted while the farm is still fertilized will be fertilized also.

Once a crop is fertilized, it will produce 2 boxes instead of 1 when harvested, whether the farm is fertilized or not at the time of harvesting. If you hire others to harvest, you will get 2 Large boxes instead of one. Employees will get twice the amount of coins, and 2 boxes as well every time they receive an additional bonus box when harvesting.

When you buy the Manure Spreader tool, it will come with 250 manure units inside for you to start fertilizing right away!

To use the Manure Spreader to fertilise, the tool must be on the farm or in storage.

You can do 2 things. . .
  • If the tool is on your farm, you can click on the tool and click "Fertilise Farm" and then click on the farm.
  • However, it is better to place all tools into your Storage. That way you can access all your tools from the Yellow Tool box, on any of your farms, without having to move the tool from farm to farm. Once they are in Storage, you can click on the Yellow Toolbox to open it, and then click on the tool you want to use.
  • NOTE: Farm Cash Tools do not count towards your storage capacity, you can store as many of those as you want.

You have an option in your game Preferences to show Highlighted Crops/Trees. When this is checked all fertilized crops/trees will have a white highlight around them. However this can make the game slower.

There are also some other ways you can check if your farm is fertilized...
  • Check the background colour of the oval containing your farm name, if your farm is fertilized it will be olive green instead of brown.
  • Go to the farm in question and open the tool box. Hover your mouse over the manure spreader, it will tell you how long the farm is fertilised for and how much manure is stored.
  • Click on your Yellow Tool box to open it, then click on the Show Times icon (looks like a clock). Look in the Per-Farm section and under "Fertilize Farms" it will have a green check mark if a farm can be fertilised OR it will tell you how long until you can fertilise each farm.
  • Look at the colours in the green grid top left of your game screen, any farms that are fertilized will be olive green instead of green.
  • Click on "Show Names" at the top of the green grid and then on "Show Extra Farm Info". The legend top left of that window will show you which farms are Fertilized, Irrigated, Watered and which are Quest farms, Private or Disabled for super neighbour farming actions. If you mouse over each farm it will tell you if there is another land upgrade available for it and what it will cost.

    If you hover your mouse over the legend top left of the window it will tell you what the letters and each colour represents. F is for Fertilized.

Default What is the mobile sprinkler?

Q: What is the mobile sprinkler ?

A: There are 5 sprinklers... Brown, red, orange, green and purple. Depending on the ones you own, they can be used to water ALL flowers on a farm and irrigate crops, trees, flowers to shorten growth time and extend waste time, all with one click.




Brown mobile sprinkler - This allows you to water all your flowers on your farm in one click. You earn 3XP when you water your own flowers, but it will cost you 1000 coins. You can use the sprinkler once per day.
  • You can also take this tool with you to water your neighbors' farms.
  • To use it on your neighbors' farms, the tool must be in your storage so it will show up in the Yellow Toolbox. Go to your neighbors farm, open the Yellow Toolbox and simply click on the sprinkler and then click on the farm. You earn 1000 coins and 3 XP every time you water your neighbours' flowers.

When you own the following mobile sprinklers you can NOT use them on your Neighbours farms if you are not their Super Neighbour and they do NOT own the tools. They must own the tools themselves for you to be able to irrigate for them as a Super Neighbour only.

Red Sprinkler - This is used to speed up growth of the crops and flowers by 50%. Please note that while the crops grow in half the time, the end waste time is not effected, meaning if you plant a 4 hour crop, it would be grown in 2 hours, and you'll have 6 hours in which to harvest it, totaling 8 hours, which is what it would be had the crops not been irrigated. You can irrigate a plant more than once, but it's growth speed will only double the first time. You may only irrigate once per day.
Please note: A time that has a decimal point it after it is approximate, the game can not display more than the 1 digit after the decimal point so 3.3 Days is actually 3.333333
Orange Sprinkler - This is used to speed up tree growth by 50%. If you own the orange sprinkler, you only need use this one to irrigate trees, crops and flowers. You can irrigate a plant more than once, but it's growth speed will only double the first time. As with the red sprinkler, speeding up growing time does not effect waste time. You may only irrigate once per day

Green Sprinkler - This tool increases the time to waste period on all crops. For crops that mature in 1 day or less it increases the time to waste period by 24 hours. For crops that take over a day to mature it increases the time to waste period by 48 hours.

Purple Sprinkler - This tool allowes you to irrigate ALL farms or selection of farms in a single click.

Once you own an upgraded sprinkler it will also do the job of the previous ones. Example, if you own the green sprinkler, when you use it it will also apply the jobs of the brown, red and orange sprinklers.

Note: Irrigating crops/trees/flowers will cost you 1000 coins per farm. You will earn 3XP for watering/irrigating the farm that you are on. If you water/irrigate multiple farms at once you will still only earn 3XP for the farm you are on and NOT all the others.



To find out what farms have been watered or irrigated, there are several ways:
  • If you want to know when a specific farm can next be irrigated, go to the farm in question and open the tool box. Hover your mouse over the red, orange, green or purple mobile sprinkler and if you need to wait, it will tell you how long.
  • Click on your Yellow Tool box to open it, then click on the Show Times icon (looks like a clock). Look in the Per-Farm section and under "Water Farm Flowers" and "Irrigate Farm Plants" it will have a green check mark if a farm can be watered or irrigated OR it will tell you how long until you can water/irrigate each farm.
  • Click on "Show Names" at the top of the green grid, top left of the game screen, and then click on "Show Extra Farm Info". The legend top left of that window will show you which farms are Fertilized, Irrigated, Watered and which are Quest farms, Private or Disabled for super neighbour farming actions. If you mouse over each farm it will tell you if there is another land upgrade available for it and what it will cost.

    If you hover your mouse over the legend top left of the window it will tell you what the letters and each colour represents. I is for Irrigated, W is for watered.



To use the Mobile Sprinkler, the tool must be on the farm or in storage.

You can do 2 things. . .
  • If the tool is on your farm, you can click on the tool and click "Water Flowers" (brown sprinkler) or "Irrigate" (red, orange, green and purple sprinklers) and then click on the farm.
  • However, it is better to place all tools into your Storage. That way you can access all your tools from the Yellow Tool box, on any of your farms, without having to move the tool from farm to farm. Once they are in Storage, you can click on the Yellow Toolbox to open it, and then click on the tool you want to use.
  • NOTE: Farm Cash Tools do not count towards your storage capacity, you can store as many of those as you want.


***IMPORTANT: Only 2 sprinklers will show in the extended toolbar, the brown one for reviving flowers and either the red, orange, green or purple one, you DO NOT lose the other sprinklers, they are still in your storage. ***



Note: Only you will be able to use the mobile sprinklers to irrigate or water your Quest or Private farms. SN's, neighbours or anyone visiting can not do those farms. However the flowers on a Quest farm can be watered using the watering can.

Default What are the bulldozers?

Q: What are the bulldozers?

A: There are 9 bulldozers in total. They can be used to delete items from your farms.
NOTE: Super Neighbours with the right permissions will have access to these tools when designing for you.




Yellow Bulldozer - This is in your Yellow Toolbox and allows you to delete any item on the farm, so be very careful when using this item. Click on the yellow bulldozer then click on an item to delete it. It's better to have buildings etc hidden if you do not wish to accidentally delete them.
NOTE: You will get a confirmation box which you can disable for the rest of the session, providing the value is less than 35,000 coins. Anything of greater value will still get the confirmation box.


The White Bulldozer (2x2) - This will allow you to delete 4 plowed/harvested or wasted fields. It will also act as the yellow bulldozer does when deleting anything else.

The Blue Bulldozer (3x3) - allows you to delete 9 fields, trees or flowers at once

The Orange Bulldozer (4x4) - allows you to delete 16 fields, trees or flowers at once

The Green Bulldozer (5x5) - allows you to delete 25 fields, trees or flowers at once

The Purple Bulldozer (6x6) - allows you to delete 36 fields, trees or flowers at once

The Brown Bulldozer (8x8) - allows you to delete 64 fields, trees or flowers at once

The Pink Bulldozer (12x12) - allows you to delete 144 fields, trees or flowers at once


*** Please be careful when deleting things. The bulldozers will delete planted fields IF you click on them. If you click on the harvested/wasted or plowed fields, then only those of that type will be deleted and crops will be left alone. We advise you to hide in your preferences the things you do not wish to be deleted by accident. You also have the option of using the single yellow bulldozer for single items ***



Bulldozer Ex (8x8) - Delete up to 1024 items at once, either Fields Only (works on overlapped fields and will delete ALL fields including plowed fields, harvested fields and all growing and ready crops) OR Plants and Fields (ALL fields and crops and also includes trees and flowers) OR Buildings and Decorations (includes coin waters but not Farm Cash waters) OR All of the above, in a squared area up to 8 x 8 plow fields.
It works similar to the other Extended Mode tools but with more options, you can select the size of the tool and what to delete before you start using it. Also, the yellow square moves from one tile to the next, similar to the way the Plower Ex tool works, giving you more flexibility on what area to clear.

To use this tool on any of your farms, place it into Item storage. Open your toolbox and click on the Ex bulldozer, you will then see the following options. Remember "Buildings and Decorations" will also clear coin waters!


1. First, at the bottom of the clearing mode window, select the size of the tool you want. There is a drop down arrow which will let you change the tool size from 1x1 up to 8x8. Click on the size you want and it will turn blue.
2. Then click on the type of items you want to delete >>
  • Fields Only (will delete ALL fields including plowed fields, harvested fields and all growing and ready crops)
  • Plants and Fields (will delete ALL fields, as above, and trees and flowers)
  • Buildings and Decorations (will also delete coin waters but not Farm Cash waters)
  • All of the Above

3. Move the yellow square to where you want to delete and click to delete.

Note: Farm Cash Items, facilites, trains and ships will NOT be deleted with this tool.


When selecting an EX Tool instead of the Eye in the bottom right of the game screen you will see the picture of the tool you have clicked on.

When you click on that icon, you will see a vertical toolbar with 3 buttons.


  • The one in the top (Highlight) selects the old method of highlighting each individual item. NOTE: Using the Ex tools in Highlight mode will make the tool work like the single layer tools.
  • The one in the middle selects the New Method (Extent) of highlighting only the perimeter of the area where the tool will operate. Instead of highlighting all the fields etc, this new method will just highlight a fixed squared section of the farm which works faster and with less manual mistakes. When you use this method you will briefly see "Extent mode selected" in white lettering near the top of the game screen.
  • The bottom button closes the box.

To use the Bulldozer, the tool must be on the farm or in storage.

You can do 2 things. . .
  • If the tool is on your farm, you can click on the tool and click "Delete Items" and then click on the item.
  • However, it is better to place all tools into your Storage. That way you can access all your tools from the Yellow Tool box, on any of your farms, without having to move the tool from farm to farm. Once they are in Storage, you can click on the Yellow Toolbox to open it, and then click on the tool you want to use.
  • NOTE: Farm Cash Tools do not count towards your storage capacity, you can store as many of those as you want.

Log Truck w/Chainsaw (24x24) - This Log Truck w/Chainsaw will chop up to 576 trees and uses the new faster method of harvesting as described above.

Log Truck w/Chainsaw (28x28) - This Log Truck w/Chainsaw will chop up to 784 trees and uses the new faster method of harvesting as described above.

Log Truck w/Chainsaw (32x32) - This Log Truck w/Chainsaw will chop up to 1024 trees and uses the new faster method of harvesting as described above.

These tools can be accessed easily if they are placed into Storage. You then click on the Yellow Tool box to access them.


To use the Log Truck w/Chainsaw, the tool must be on the farm or in storage.

You can do 2 things. . .
  • If the tool is on your farm, you can click on the tool and click "Chop Trees" and then click on the item.
  • However, it is better to place all tools into your Storage. That way you can access all your tools from the Yellow Tool box, on any of your farms, without having to move the tool from farm to farm. Once they are in Storage, you can click on the Yellow Toolbox to open it, and then click on the tool you want to use.
  • NOTE: Farm Cash Tools do not count towards your storage capacity, you can store as many of those as you want.

You can also use the Axe (single chop tool) to chop trees one at a time, if you don't own the tools. To select the Axe, click on the Yellow Toolbox and select the tool.

Default What is the forklift?

Q: What is the forklift?

A:There are 2 Forklifts, Green and Purple, They can be kept either in storage, or on any farm, it doesn't matter where. These tools Store All products in a Facility. These tools use Fuel to Store.





The Green Forklift - Allows you to store all products in a single facility with a single click. This does NOT include service facilities. To do this click on the Facility Manager in the Yellow Toolbox:




Then you are able to use the "Store All" button on each facility :-





You are also able to use the "Store All" inside each facility :-


The Purple Forklift - Allows you to store ALL products in ALL facilities in a single click. This does NOT include service facilities. As above, open the facility manager, then use the "Store All" button at the top :-


NOTE: Although you do not need to put these tools into Storage it is better if you do. That way the game will recognise what tools you already own should there be another upgraded tool released. Farm Cash Tools do not count towards your storage capacity, you can store as many of those as you want.

Default What is the ordering station?

Q: What is the ordering station?



The Ordering Station w/Trailer is used in conjunction with the Semi-Trailer Truck, it can be on any farm or in storage, it doesn't matter.

This enables the 'All' button when ordering products from the Truck.

Also, with the extra trailer capacity products are delivered twice as fast, 30 minutes instead of 1 hour, it's like duplicating the output of each truck assuming you have enough fuel.

Note that if you have multiple trucks, you only need to buy one ordering Station w/ Trailer, and all your trucks will benefit. The trucks MUST be on separate farms, just like with any other facility.

Q. What is the Turbo Ordering Station?


This tool will allow you to order products from ALL the semi trailers on ALL of your farms.
