with the farmers' market, My Free Farm receives another big update. The farmers' market allows players starting at level 23 who have a second farm to plant flowers and turn them into beautiful arrangements.
Preconditions: you need to have a second farm to be able to use this feature.
As you might have noticed already, there is a path with a signpost pointing South on your second farm.
Here, you will find the farmers' market*, a completely new farm, which offers you the new production cycle flowers and flower arrangements. The farmers' market thus functions like a further farm with its own customers, the flower farmies.
This further farm comes with two new "buildings", the flower meadow and the flower workshop. The flower meadow can be unlocked permanently for 85,000 pD; the flower workshop is available for 75,000 pD.
*You need to have a second farm, to be able to see and use the farmers' market (unlockable by completing quest series 1, up to quest #23).
On your additional farm you will also find another helper, who'll explain you your new farm's most important features.
How does it all work?
Click the following button!
The required flowers to plant on your flower meadow are available at the seed retailer in Mootown. Here, we implemented two new buttons, which allow you to switch between the seeds used on your fields and the flower seeds used on your flower meadow. Of course you may also trade your flowers (and arrangements) on the market place.
In the new category, you'll find 17 flowers, you may plant on your flower meadow.
Where do I plant the new flowers?
You plant the flowers on the flower meadow you will find in your farmers' market. To that end, we have added another category to your shelf: flowers and arrangements. If you already purchased the necessary seeds in Mootown, you can get started planting. Click the respective button in your menu,...
... and choose the desired seed.
Each flower takes up one of the 36 fields you have available, and which don't have to be cleared first. These 36 fields are available from the start. As per usual, premium players are able to use the bonus features such as the planting helper, the water everything and the harvest everything feature. To harvest single, fully grown plants, all you need to do is click the required plant. Harvesting flowers will gain you experience points as per usual.
Watering flowers will bring you a 5% growth time bonus.
On the flower meadow, you'll be able to further reduce your plants' growth time via our booster sheep in exchange for Coins.
There is another new function: theflower bonus. Every 24 hours, you will receive a growth time bonus of 15% on a plant you are already able to plant at your level. You may effect this growth time bonus on one specific plant of your choice every 24 hours in exchange for Coins. Once the 24 hours have run up, the bonus will switch to another randomly selected plant.
What can I do with my flowers?
You can turn your flowers to flower arrangements in the flower workshop. The first production slot is available as soon as you have purchased the workshop, the second one can be unlocked permanently in exchange for potato dollars, and the third slot can be rented with Coins.
Producing arrangements will cost you potato dollars or Coins, depending on the arrangement. Some of the arrangements require truly unique plants: tiger lilies and fly agarics. These plants are neither available at the seed retailer's, nor on the market place. You can only find them alongside some of your harvests on the flower meadow. They cannot be planted either, but only be used to produce arrangements.
What to do with the arrangements?
Same as the flowers (the exception to this rule are the arrangements that cost Coins as well as the arrangements that include tiger lilies and fly agarics), can be traded on the market place, or they can be placed in the flower pots you will see on the side of the path of your farmers' market, to attract the unique flower farmies:
Next to regular farm produce, these flower farmies also ask for flowers and flower arrangements. In turn, they will give you a load of potato dollars and experience points.
How do I get flower farmies?
To attract a flower farmy, you first need to place arrangements on the side of the pathway in your farmers' market. These arrangements will gain you a certain amount of flower farmy points for a certain amount of time, before they will fade and need to be replaced. Faded arrangements won't impress any farmies, and thus will gain you no further flower farmy points! Every 10,000 flower farmy-poins, you will receive a flower farmy. There are a total of 17 planting pots, in which you may present your arrangements.
Your current amount of flower farmy points will be displayed by hovering your mouse over the farmers' market's market stall.
Some arrangements need to be watered, before they will generate flower farmy points. You can either water your arrangements yourself, or hire gardener Gaillard,who will take care of the watering for you in exchange for Coins.
You will find Gaillard on the top right hand side - his green clothing and his green garden hose make him easily recognizable:
As Gaillard does not have magic powers, your arrangements will fade eventually when the indicated time has run up, even if they are watered, and thus may have to be replaced!
But that's not all yet!
With our new farm, we've also got new shadowbox items, which you may gain by finding tiger lilies and fly agarics as well as by serving flower farmies!
Plus, we've got new features for your convenience:
Starting today, you may buy animals via their respective sheds with just one click!
All you need to do is open your profile, and tick the box "Simplified animal purchase" and confirm the changes by entering your password.
Now access your shed. You will see the animals' outlines on the free slots.
Click on one of the outlines, and confirm the security question via the green tick, and the animal is placed on the first free slot in your shed.
Also don't forget our Shakespearean sheep, our current bonus item available with a purchase of premium currency.
Enjoy our update
