Default How to create an account?

First you need to give your farmer a name.
Then you choose, female or male, then click the green check mark.


On the next screen you will find the avatar editor, where you can choose what your avatar will look like.

Click on each selection for Skin, Hair, Eyes, Mouth, Nose, Ears, Eyebrows, Clothes, then chose the options you want by clicking on it. The avatar picture to the left will show you what you have picked. Or you can click on “Try a random look” to let the game make a choice for you. When you are done, click the green check mark.



The game will refresh the page and the game will load with music playing.

The mayor will take you through the basic steps of farming. If you wish to repeat them, just click on the top right of your game screen.

You will have a few basic things to start you off >>
one orange tree, one apple tree, one lemon tree, 5 white fences, a water trough, 1 pig, 1 sheep.
14 fields which are the following>>
2 of which are plowed ready for planting,
2 tomato fields, 2 potato fields, 2 rice fields, ready to harvest.
2 tomato fields, 2 potato fields, 2 rice fields in various stages of growth



Congratulations. Now you can play!

Default How to change my appearance?

You can change your appearance at any time by clicking on your avatar and selecting "Change Appearance" which will appear in a pop-up.

This will launch the edit avatar screen where you can change your appearance.

Default How to change the name and sex of my avatar?

Click the tab "My Account" on top of your game screen. This will take you to another screen where you can change the name of your avatar.

Once your name's been changed, the game will automatically update the list of your neighbours and your "buddies" to show your new name.

This is also where you can change the gender of your avatar.

Default Re-authorise Farm Town!

As of April 2018, as part of Facebook security updates, there is a new requirement that you have to re-authorise the game to access your basic information like name, picture and friends which are essential to the operation of the game. This will happen every 90 days.

***The only information about your friends that we access is the name and picture, and we use that info strictly inside the game, we don't provide or sell that info to any third party.***


It is very easy to do

If you need to do this you will see the following popup when you load the game.



Click the "Continue as xxx" and another popup up will appear.
In the next popup check that under "Who can see Farm Town's post on your Timeline?" it shows "Public" or "Friends". If it doesn't, click the drop down arrow and change the setting.
Then you need to click OK



That's it, you are done! You will be able to continue playing Farm Town!

If you did not allow access for your basic information and your friends list as shown in the post above, then you may not be able to load the game or at least participate in all features of Farm Town. The next time you load the game you may be asked again to give those permissions.

If this does not happen, go to your Facebook Settings then Apps and Websites.
There are 3 tabs
  • Active
  • Expired
  • Removed
Look under Active and see if Farm Town is listed there. If it is then you are likely fine, but you can also check the items the game has access to by clicking the View and Edit. You need to give access to your basic information like name, picture and friends, permission to post on your behalf etc.

If Farm Town is not there, click on and look under Expired. If you see Farm Town there, click View and Edit and then Renew Access.
