FarmVille Enchanted Glen farm is the most recent example of FarmVille game expansions. There’s already talks of the next FarmVille destination farm being Atlantis themed. Zynga has been rolling out new FarmVille destination farms about every three months, so we’ve become accustomed to the idea of new farms, but not everyone is happy. FarmVille players are divided between those liking the idea of having new farms and those that don’t and would prefer addressing existing FarmVille issues first.
Since no one is forced to visit or acquire a new FarmVille farm, it seems kind of silly to say no to a new farm, even if you don’t plan on utilizing it. You can go ahead and claim your new destination farmland, and then completely ignore it or farm there happily.
With at least nine major farms, and several mini expansions going on such as Sunflower Meadow and Angler’s Pond no one is expected to keep all of their farms actively running. Most players choose to only farm a handful of farms or rotate which of their FarmVille farms they keep active. Of course, there is no right way and what’s right for you is for you alone to decide.
With that being said, we are still interested to know – how many FarmVille farms do you actively farm? Take our FarmVille Freak Poll below and tell us what you think about additional FarmVille farms in the comments below-. Are you for or against more FarmVille farms?
FarmVille will be making some changes to upcoming FarmVille quests by adding Difficulty Levels!
In our recent post of a unreleased Summer Harvest Quest guide on FarmVille Freak, you’ll see some confusing numbers on the requirements and rewards of this still unreleased quest and that’s because FarmVille will soon be adding difficulty levels to quests!
You will be able to choose which level of difficulty for quests from three different levels:
And what of quest rewards? Depending on which level you complete will reflect what quest rewards you receive. It’s safe to say that the harder level quest you complete, the better rewards you will receive. This means that there will be more prizes for harder quests completed and more XP and Farm Coin rewards than going the easy route.
How do you feel about these projected quest FarmVille Quest changes, FarmVille Freaks? Tell us what you think in the comments below and vote in our FarmVille Freak Poll!
The Flea Market was on an extremely slow roll out to players and it seems as though only a small group of players actually had it probably due to Zynga testing it for bugs and feedback. There was a lot of positive feedback from players that had been visited by Claire and made Flea Market trades. However, there were still kinks involved that Zynga would like to resolve before they consider this feature to be a permanent part of FarmVille. Removing the Flea Market from the game kinda seems like a temporary decision on Zynga’s part, but we’ll have to wait and see! I’m still mad at Claire for never visiting my farm. What about you, how do you feel about the removal of the Flea Market feature from FarmVille? Be sure to Take our FarmVille Freak Polls below and share this post with all your farmin’ friends who are wondering what happened to Claire!
Here’s the announcement from official FarmVille sources, FarmVille Community Manager Grimwell, below:
After listening carefully to everyone’s feedback, we’ve turned off the Flea Market feature, so you’ll no longer find Claire visiting your farms. As you know, we’ve brought this feature out very slowly and we have actively watched how Farmers who have had access to Claire responded, and how the feature worked out in comparison with our expectations.
We’re certainly very happy to see that a great number of Farmers are interested in trading! The Flea Market has taught us that we have a good number of things to resolve before we can consider a feature with trading a permanent part of FarmVille. Due to that realization, the Flea Market has been removed from the game.
Thank you for your interest, participation, and feedback on this feature.
When we talk about harvesting Coconuts, we are only referring to those items that produce Coconuts. Many of you also seem confused about this so we’d like to clear that up while we are on topic in the side note below. If this information is insulting your virtual farming expertise, please skip ahead.
Side Note:What’s up with Coconuts?!FarmVille Hawaiian Paradise has two currencies which include Farm Cash and the new Coconuts. Only items designated as Coconut producers will yield Coconuts when harvested. This means that although you may have placed some cool animals on your Hawaiian Paradise farm that you’ve gotten from the Facebook News Feed, found leftover in your FarmVille Gift Box, or even purchased in the FarmVille Market- only the Coconut producing animals will yield Coconuts! This also applies to Hawaiian animal habitats. It doesn’t matter if you have a Hawaiian Horse Paddock full of horses. If they are all regular Farm Coin producing horses, then you will only get Farm Coins when harvesting your Hawaiian Horse Paddock. On the other hand, if you have a stable stocked full of Coral Horses (Limited Edition Hawaiian Paradise item) you will be treated to Coconuts upon harvesting. Remember:
Only Coconut-producing items (animals/trees) will produce Coconuts.
Farm Coin-producing items (animals/trees) will produce Farm Coins in FarmVille Hawaiian Paradise.
Be sure to check an item’s market icon as shown in the FarmVille Market and it will display a Coconut value if item is able to produce Coconuts. Read more about Coconuts by clicking here.
Now back to the issue at hand, in case you haven’t been keeping up, here’s a quick recap on Coconuts.
First, certain Coconut-producing items were able to harvest Coconuts on all farms. This was a FarmVille “Known Issue” that later became resolved by making Hawaiian Paradise items able to harvest Coconuts in Hawaiian Paradise only. The original intention was that Hawaiian Paradise items would only be able to harvest Coconuts if they were placed on Hawaiian Paradise farms.
“Coconuts are granted outside of Hawaiian Paradise when harvesting!
Coconuts are granted outside of Hawaiian Paradise when harvesting applicable animals/items.
Last Update: 3/2/12
Description: Since the release of Hawaiian Paradise, players have been receiving Coconuts when harvesting applicable animals/items outside of their Hawaiian Paradise farm. Coconuts should only be granted when an item is placed/harvested in Hawaiian Paradise.
Then, FarmVille’s official Facebook Fan Page announced on March 6th that they would be allowing players to harvest Coconuts from Hawaiian Paradise items on all farms.
“FarmVille: Your feedback on this is loud and clear! Effective immediately, we are reverting the rules to allow players to harvest coconuts from Hawaiian Paradise items on all farms. ” (Source: Official FarmVille Facebook Fan Page)
Now, we are back to where we started (I think?) as players are once again reporting that they are unable to harvest Coconuts from animals or trees that should produce Coconuts on any other farm besides FarmVille Hawaiian Paradise. We are only getting Coconuts in Hawaiian Paradise. This has since become a FarmVille “Known Issue” as well.
“Coconuts Not Being harvested On Other Farms
Last Update: 3/8/2012
Description: Since 3-8-2012, players are unable to receive Coconuts for Harvesting Animals or Trees that are Coconut Producers on Farms other than HP.
Status: The FarmVille studio is aware of these reports and is investigating the issue.
Recently FarmVille has been offering regular Limited Edition animals for Farm Coins. We’re not talking about the regular 300 Farm Coin Cow, 700 Farm Coin Sheep, or even the 5,000 Farm Coin Pub Cat or other run of the mill hundred thousand dollar Farm Coin animal. Not to digress, but anyone else notice that even a simple standard FarmVille Horse has a price tag of 50,000 Farm Coins? Shocking isn’t it, especially since this same animal can be sent for free via the FarmVille Gifting Page. No, we are talking about the ones that you’ve been eyeing, but can’t bring yourself to spend the coinage on or simply can’t afford.
In FarmVille, animals have a long history of costing Farm Cash with the rare Farm Coin animal thrown in the mix. Now, on a weekly basis we can expect to see at least a couple Limited Edition Farm Coin animals enter the market. Although these pricey critters usually come with an expensive price tag, it’s an option that we welcome. Now let’s talk more about price. For example, this week the FarmVille Market introduced the Thuringian Goat for 2.5 million Farm Coins and most recent a Vosges Cow for 3 million Farm Coins. There’s also a drool-worthy Lion costing 3 million Farm Coins who will be leaving the market in just a few days. The catch is that because these Farm Coin animals are still Limited Edition, they won’t be in the market forever. So you’ll have to spend what Farm Coins you have or work hard on your farm and save up enough Farm Coins to purchase these animals in the time frame allowed. Maybe even some of you have been desperate enough to purchase a Farm Coin package using real money.
At these prices it makes it difficult for beginners or casual farmers to afford, especially if they are hoping to purchase the occasional Farm Coin animal, much less collect and give homes to all the Farm Coin animals introduced to the market. Perhaps, even the most elite FarmVille Freaks are struggling to keep up. The cost of fueling and running four farms, plus purchasing Farm Expansion not only takes a toll on our bank account, but so does stocking up on these fancy animals.
It’s nice to see an option to purchase animals without using Farm Cash, but at these prices, it makes us wonder who really can afford these expensive Limited Edition Farm Coin animals?
Can you afford to purchase Farm Coin animals? Take our FarmVille Freak Poll below!
UPDATE: FarmVille has resolved this issue on 12/7/11.
This evening there have been many reports from FarmVille Freaks who are experiencing traveling issues when attempting to travel between farms. The problem is resulting in these players being “stuck” on one of their farms.
Since then, this problem has become classified as a Zynga FarmVille Known Issue.

After Sheep Breeding premiered, FarmVille Freaks fast and furiously bred sheep only to discover that we are only allowed 100 bred sheep on our farms.
FarmVille Sorry Farmer, 100 Bred Sheep Notice
For those of us who have hit the 100 limit and continue to breed more sheep (who can quit? it’s so addictive!) we are forced to sell sheep that we have spent time and precious Love Potions to breed. Now, while this is painful, there is more painful news to report:
Many FarmVille Freaks are reporting that their bred sheep on farm limit is fluid rather at the fixed 100 amount the in-game pop up tells us it is.
So in other words, famers are receiving the “Sorry Farmer! You can have 100 bred sheeps on your farm.” pop up when they have less than 100 sheep. For example, I have 89 bred sheep on my farm and receive the pop up, to breed another sheep I must sell one. The rumor is that the sheep we give up for adoption are counting against our 100 limit for a certain period of time, although we can’t be certain.
FarmVille Flasher Sheep
FarmVille Mask Sheep
FarmVille Star Mask Sheep
FarmVille Spot Mask Sheep
Farmers have reached out to Zynga Customer Support about the issue and were told that it was an unknown issue and they would look into it. So at this point no one can be certain if this is a glitch or an intended part of sheep breeding. If it is intentional, we that just stinks! Farmers love to help their neighbors create new and fun sheep by breeding one of their best to put up for adoption, like Flasher Sheep! It would really stink if giving up for adoption lowers our own bred sheep limit.
Currently farmers can only adopt one sheep per day, but are able to give as many as they like up for adoption.

UPDATE: Double Mastery is CONFIRMED on March 18, 2011!
After last night’s updates, many farmers were reporting seeing double mastery points while harvesting their crops and trees. Until this morning, no official announcement was made. However, earlier today, Farmville Community Manager Grimwell said:
Good morning, just a quick FYI – Double Mastery will be turned off Sunday night. We should be doing that at about 9:00 PM PST.
We will be turning wither and puppy hunger back on at about 12:00 PM PST today now that the issues last night are over.
So FarmVille Freaks, enjoy harvesting your trees & crops until Sunday night, and make sure you harvest your crops before noon today so they don’t wither!
Remember that Double Mastery applies to both crops & trees!
armVille Grimwell Official Statement about Double Mastery
Tonight March 17th, 2011 FarmVille Freaks are reporting major game loading issues! A lot of frustrated farmers are receiving the following error message:
Oh no! It looks like all the bits got lost on the way to your computer. Please refresh your page.
With early signs of FarmVille English Countryside premiering, players are getting anxious about the potential slew of issues that could pop up.
UPDATE: FarmVille Community Manager Stumpgrinder has posted to the Official FarmVille Forums about tonight’s loading issues. It has not yet been decided if the normal stop to crops withering & puppy hunger will be instituted.
About half of our games are down (or at least the majority of people being able to access them). We’re investigating now. If there isn’t a resolution fairly soon we’ll see about unwither & puppy hunger.
