Farming is an aspect of gameplay that allows you to grow your own food from seeds. Currently you are able to grow wheat, tomatoes and carrots. Pineapples and berries are exceptions as they do not come from seeds.
How to Farm
In order to create a farm you first need a hoe. A hoe allows you to till land rendering it capable of being planted with seeds. Seeds placed on tilled land will grow to a full sized plant after a specific period of time has passed. Once fully grown, the plant may be harvested for food. Harvested plants are destroyed and food and seed are dropped.
For more information, see seeds.
Pineapples and Berries
Pineapples and berries are exceptions that do not grow from seeds. Pineapples grow from a planted pineapple crown. A pineapple crown does not have to be planted on tilled soil and therefore does not require a hoe. Berries grow on a berry bush which, likewise, do not have to be planted on tilled soil. When harvested, both the pineapple plant and berry bush are not destroyed. You do not have to replant them and the fruit will regrow over time.
Pineapple plants cannot be picked up, only destroyed. Berry bushes may be dug up with a shovel and replanted in another location. This is helpful as there is no way to grow your own berry bush.
In the table below you will find the yield for each harvested crop.
