FarmVille Dairy Crafting Guide: Everything you need to know about the FarmVille Dairy!
Posted on January 30, 2013 11:27 pm by FarmVille Freak FarmGoddess
The story is that the local dairy was destroyed and they need our help fulfilling outstanding orders. You can use your Dairy to craft goods, fill orders from the town, and then get exclusive prizes and materials to expand and improve your Dairy. There’s more good news- you can start crafting right away. There’s no construction phase to get this feature working or begging for parts. It’s ready to go on placement.
Once the update is made available to you on your FarmVille farm, you will receive a pop-up notification inviting you to place the Dairy on your farm. If you don’t have enough room to place your Dairy, it will go to your FarmVille Gift Box for safekeeping. You may also find the Dairy in your FarmVille Market for the cost of only 1 Farm Coin.
You can have more than one Dairy or several across your FarmVille farms, but think of the Dairy as universal. Each Dairy will take you to the same menu with the same progress, having multiple Dairies only gives you several different access points.
How the Dairy Works
The Dairy is self-contained and doesn’t require additional buildings or begging for that matter. There are three main parts which includes the following:
- Order Board – houses Dairy orders from town.
- Raw Materials -ingredients used in Dairy recipes.
- Crafting Machines – how you make Dairy recipes.
The Order Board allows you to access orders from the town. Simply click on a face to see that person’s order. You can fill orders by crafting items in your Dairy to then earn prizes. Every order that you fill will earn you Farm Coins, items for your farm or items that can be used to expand your Dairy, and Dairy Points. Dairy Points are similar to XP, but exclusively for your Dairy. You will need to level-up your Dairy to unlock new machines and recipes.
There are a total of six Raw Materials stations. You can unlock them all when you level-up your Dairy. Each Raw Material station harvests for different for different ingredients that you use in the Dairy Recipes. Dairy Recipes are made with the Crafting Machines. Upon start, the first station, the Milk Station, is already unlocked as soon as you place your Dairy on your farm.
Each station will harvest one type of raw ingredient.
- Milk Station – harvests for Milk
- Culture Station – harvests for Culture
- Banana Plant Station – harvests for Banana
- Strawberry Plant Station – harvests for Strawberry
- Cocoa Plant Station – harvests for Cocoa
- Vanilla Plant Station – harvests for Vanilla
Harvesting Your Station
Each Raw Material Station is ready to harvest in 5 minutes or less. You can see how soon your Station will be ready by the pink indicator above each station.
Once you harvest one of your stations, the Raw Ingredient you harvest will go straight to your Dairy’s Silo.
There are six Crafting Machines total that you will be able to unlock as you level-up your Dairy. The first machine, the Butter Churn, will be available to you from the start of your farm’s Dairy. The rest will be unlocked as you level-up.
