I’ve used a picture from my winery today to show crafts. I also have a bakery and of course a pub on the English countryside farm! You can see in this picture that I am making 3 lots of wine and the blackberry wine is on level 43. It is a good idea to get one craft item on a high level; I have red wine on level 110. (more…)
You can see in the picture that I have a dairy near those belted cows and that is the main trick for making millions of coins. You can’t buy belted cows until you have reached level 75 but you can still do the trick with ordinary cows or the brown cows or whatever you can get. (more…)
Someone mentioned Farmville to me last year and I thought I would have a go at playing. Now I’m past level 300 and have a castle! Most of the stuff in the picture is either only available on the higher levels or a limited edition that has finished like the castle towers. You can get off the bottom of the levels and level up quite fast by understanding the game, then using a few tricks and strategies. (more…)
Most Farmville books like ‘Farmville Secrets’ promise to help get you to level 70 and make a few million coins in a day. I can do better! I can get you past level 100 and you can make a million coins every day! In this series of blogs, I will tell you my secrets for FREE!
First take a look at the screen shot; I have a large farm. You get a large farm by making friends and then going to the market and buying a bigger farm. Plough (plow) your farm as much as you can; if you have just started click one plot at a time and of course don’t leave spaces between plots. Then start seeding them. You want a good ROI (return on investment) and so pick your crops carefully. I began by growing a lot of soya beans! It may be better to grow fruit to make wine now, if you can afford to get a winery. The winery costs 100,000 coins; I deleted mine by mistake! That was no problem until I realised I had lost my huge stock of wine! No worries, I can make another huge stock.
The thing like a globe at the top of your screen is for notifications and should notify you when you have a present. You click that and go to the page where the presents are. This is my first Farmville secret for you! Don’t click on the present, click the name of the person giving it to you and it will take you to their ‘wall’. I did this earlier and found on the ‘wall’ a free can of fuel, I claimed that! Then I clicked back and went back to the wall twice and claimed a couple of other things. Then back to the gifts page to collect that important gift. It gets better though; watch out for cows like the long horned cow or Groovy cow, grab those. The thing you really need though is bulls and lots of them. I will explain in Advanced Farmville how to make millions of coins in just one day using your dairies. For now just save up your cash because you need to invest later and so don’t waste it on cottages or stuff to make you farm look good. I don’t even have a house; I sold my million coin villa to buy something with a ROI (return on investment).
If you have a winery, then try to run a co-op or join one, you get a bonus the equivalent of three lots of wine. There is a Farmville secret for co-ops too of course. Let us say you are making red wine and that is from black grapes and white grapes. You have to start the co-op then seed the grapes and then harvest the grapes in that order. You want to know the ‘cheat’? First seed all your plots with black grapes because these take 24 hours to grow. I usually seed 600 plots. Then when they are ready to harvest, harvest 16 plots; just 16! Now start you co-op! Next; plough those 16 plots and plant with black grapes. Now harvest 16 plots, the computer can’t tell one grape from another and you have seeded 16 plots and harvested 16 plots and so the game starts to add those to the co-op. Then continue like that plough again and seed another 16 then harvest 16 again and keep doing that until you have harvested all 600. You won’t be allowed the first 16 but will have harvested 584 plots and you still have over 3 days to go to get gold! Do the same thing 24 hours later and when have harvested all the black grapes start planting white ones and do the same thing. When the thing goes from the co-op page about inviting friends to help; just harvest the lot; there is no need then to do them 16 at a time. I have had over 600 plots and could just about do a co-op alone; but usually people join – they know I cheat!
Trees aren’t great for ROI but they can be better than you think. Click on a tree and look at the price it will sell for. If it’s not much like a cherry tree and you’re short on space, sell it. You can then specialise in high value, high ROI trees only and make sure all the trees in you orchard are high value ones. I have a row of trees on the opposite side of my farm because the strip of land there was too narrow to plough, but I am making them as high value as I can.
You can increase your ROI from the pigpen by enlarging it but coloured pigs are worth more than ordinary pigs and so try to get lots of those and fill your pigpen with them. You can sometimes exchange truffles for pigs; if it’s a coloured pig, keep it. To value a pig, outside of the pigpen; click on it and click sell and then cancel the sale if it’s a valuable one.
Before I began to write this I was harvesting and ran out of room to store bushels; I had 100. I stopped harvesting and had to wait for 6 batches of wine to finish and then I used 48 bushels to make another 6 batches of wine; freeing up storage space. Then I could harvest my strawberries and blue berries! You need either 8 bushels or 7 bushels to make a batch of wine; I chose those that needed 8 bushels; although I prefer to make the red wine if I can and I have that up to level 62. If you multiple the level by 100 and add 900 that is how many coins it will sell for usually. So my red wine will sell for 7,100 less 20% Farmville takes off. I have planted more black grapes for tomorrow and about 150 plots of raspberries because I’m running out of raspberries and need those in 6 hours to make more wine!
Dairy Farming to make millions
In the next blog I will cover dairy farming to make millions, so get some cows and bulls and a million coins to invest in dairy farming. Belted cows cost 1,000,000 coins and you will have to buy some of those; well one to start with. You can find bulls on your friends ‘walls’ when you check out presents and will often be gifted cows. You also need a dairy; the maximum is 5 and if you can extend them up to huge dairy, so they hold 40 cows. This strategy is awesome and will make you millions of coins. Comment, come back to read how to make millions of coins and get to level 100+ or better still; follow me on Twitter and I’ll Tweet the link to the next blog!
PS: It is now Saturday and I’m preparing to post this and write part two about dairy farming. My dairy farm has made 37,000,000 million coins since Monday. I spent them and got 370,000 XP! Interested? I’m not quite finished I want more! I will try to post the dairy blog tomorrow.
