Welcome to the new and fresh Farming Guide, in this guide I go over how to farm in an in-depth view. Before we begin, I would like to give a small appreciation to @Moretti as he had made the first farming guide way back in 2017. Without it, many people including myself would have never learned how to farm. This post does take inspiration from his post.

=========================================================

[To find the Supermarket or Hardware store, open your Monotablet (1) and click the "Mono-Map" app icon]

The first thing you want to do is Purchase a Trowel and Watering Can. This can be purchased from the Hardware Store.
Inside the Store, talk to the Tool Cashier NPC by pressing E on him. A menu will appear where you can purchase the Watering Can and a Trowel.

Once you purchase your equipment, it is now time to purchase your seeds. So head over to the Seed Cashier at the Supermarket.

Talk to the Seed Cashier NPC by pressing E on him. A menu will appear where you can purchase Tomato Seeds.
Make sure to purchase 15 seeds (5 seeds per batch of tomatoes, so 3 batches in 15, buy as much as you want).
There are other seeds that are available for purchase however they are available once you level up farming which will be a later section.
Keep in mind the pricing for the seeds may differ depending on the taxes that are set.

Alright, now that you have your items you are ready to start farming!

4841
Once you have all your items, you can now begin farming.
The first thing you want to do is find a suitable location for farming, keep in mind 2 things.​
  1. You can only plant on grass/soil. You cannot plant onto solid objects like wood or concrete.
  2. Public farming (See rules for details) is considered illegal and is arrestable so I recommend buying a house with grass to farm (Also affects XP and Water).
--------------------------
Once your desired spot has been acquired you can plot down all of your dirt piles which is 5 at level 1 (see Leveling section for details)
When you plot it down, you can press E on the plots to open up a seed selection menu, select tomato seeds for now. [Repeat for all 5]
Once the seed has been planted a small menu will appear above each plot (As shown below)

Each graph has its own individual purpose
  1. This is the health bar, if the plant doesn't receive enough water, this drains until it dies.
  2. This is the water bar, keep this up by watering your plants using the Watering Can
  3. This is the completion bar, once its full the plant is ready
Continue watering and caring for the plant until it reaches 100%, when it hits 100% you can press E to collect your plant.

And that is it! You have now learned how to farm! All that is left to do is to sell your food to the Supermarket.
How to sell to NPCs
Key Hints

  1. To equip your equipment, open your inventory and click the equipment, then click equip
  2. To take out your equipment, use your scroll wheel or press [3]. Then you can select the tool.
  3. Purchase Seeds when Taxes are at the lowest preferably 0% [Save money]
  4. Having Premium increases the amount of plots you may place as well as making items cheaper to purchase
  5. https://monolithservers.com/forums/threads/farming-xp-money-calculator.15425/ XP/Money Calculator
  6. You get more XP and Water when farming on your own Property
  7. Ensure you are on your property before planting, you can accidentally be off of it and it will not count as bonus XP or Water (What happened to me)
  8. If not on your property there is a chance the crop will be destroyed
  9. Use @Ice's guide on pricing for Crops https://monolithservers.com/forums/threads/guide-plant-prices-selling-exp.5720/

Leveling System.PNG
When you start farming, there is an XP System that is involved just like other skills. Here, I will show how the leveling system relates to Farming.
The first thing's first, open your inventory by pressing Q.
Then, click the Blue "Skill" Menu icon in the top right corner.

Once you click that, click the "Farming Skill" icon in the bottom, from there a whole level sheet will appear.

From here you can see what you can and cannot craft, as well as your current farming level.
It is important to only buy what you can farm and anything else will be locked.​

Amazing guide. Just as a heads up in 4.5 the 2 minute waiting period will no longer be a thing.

Although this contains information from Paralake, it does help people get a general understanding. Thank you.

Pinned.
