Should you need to get back to this post to look for other information:
Each post has a Table of Contents link bottom right of the post, which when you click, will bring you right back here.

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 then take you through the basic steps of farming and what the tools and some icons are for. If you wish to repeat them just click on the Help icon top right of your screen, it looks like a question mark.

You will have a few basic things on your farm 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



At the bottom of the screen is the Game bar which has 2 main sections.



The Neighbours/Chat section is where you will see the friends you add as neighbours. When you get more than 7 neighbours you can use the arrows to the left to scroll the bar to see more of them.

The CHAT button allows you to open and close the Chat box. When someone arrives at your farm it will automatically open in place of where your neighbours are showing. When the Chat box is open, just start typing and then click on SEND to send your message. Anyone online where you are, as long as they are not in Full Screen Mode, can see what you have sent.

The right side of the Game bar is where you have some basic tools. Hover over some of the icons there and it will tell you what it is. The "Walk" icon (green man) is what you click on after you have been using a tool and want to stop using it. You have tools for harvesting and plowing, toolbox (where more tools are and any new tools you buy and add to storage will show), you can access your buddy list, see the trophies you earn, access the Store, your Gift Box, Storage and the MAP. There are more details on all of these items in the other Chapters of the Game Guide. NOTE: Until you reach Level 8 your harvests are sold immediately without sending them to storage. When you are level 8 and above, your harvests get sent to your Harvest storage for you to use or sell at market.

Full Screen when clicked on will fill your monitor screen with the whole farm, making it much bigger to see. You can not use the messaging system or Chat window in this mode as you can not type in Full Screen, you will have to go back to normal screen to do that. To go back to normal screen just click on the Full Screen icon again. The plus and minus just below that allow you to zoom the farm in or out (if you have a mouse wheel, you can use that to zoom instead of clicking on the icons).

This is the Directional pad. Clicking each arrow will move the farm that way. However it is easier to use your mouse to move the farm in any direction. Hover your mouse anywhere on the farm then "Left click and hold the button down" , then move the mouse to drag the farm into a new position. To move your avatar, click where you want to go. Your avatar will move to where you clicked.

This is the Help icon, it is at the top right corner of your game screen. Click it if you need another look at the basic guide to some of the items.


Congratulations. Now you know the basics, 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!

Default I did not authorise Farm Town, how can i fix this?

I did not authorise Farm Town, how can i fix this?

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.
