[Contest] Forum Collection of "Big Farm Yarns!"

edited 05.02.2021 in Contests & Awards


Some of you will remember the "Tessa on Holiday" thread,
which was sadly lost in the move to this forum.
We liked the idea of that thread & so have created this one, based on a similar idea
of stories & pictures, which will remain open for new additions.

Yarnacle is known for his adventures, where he spreads his yarns of life on BF & the characters that live here,
this is your opportunity to rival his story telling.

Why does your farm look the way that it does?
Is there a good story behind why things are placed where they are?
Perhaps you always place decos with an open fire, near to a water source, 
for health & safety reasons. - It does not have to be a true story, use your imagination!.


 
All you need to do is post a picture from anywhere on your farm &
add an interesting/clever/funny story, about why the things in the picture are where they are.

You can even come up with the story first and then create a picture for it on your farm.

We want to end up with a collection of "Big Farm Yarns", created by you & fun for everyone to read.



There is no closing date, so we will be reading all your entries &
we will give out rewards to any that really impress us,
such as this special "Yarn Spinner!" badge



You may come up with more than one Yarn to post, that is allowed, though
please do not make  consecutive posts & we cannot promise multiple rewards to the same person.


Have fun & we look forward to reading about life on your farms!. :)

    That's lovely. I dismantled all three of mine, such as they were, right after Christmas.

    :) A Happy Place To Be For You and Me. :) 

    Collections galore, I have them.  I set them here for all to enjoy.  You can see all sorts of cultures and fine places.
    It is a lonely place when all the stalls leave for the season.  Until then Stop-Shop-Eat-Play...HAVE FUN!

    <3 I love the title of your Big Farm story:  A Happy Place To Be For You and Me

    The title of your story meets the goal of GGS for all who love to come and play. :smile:
    For me, I enjoy the various cultures and countries the game brings to us.
    Your perspective in playing Big Farm is quite lovely, innocent, and very refreshing.

    Tired of working in the fields all day?
    Rent one in the row of vacation cottages with a view of the bay.
    Pass through the gates into the amusement park. To the right past the relaxing swan boat there's a display of historical Viking craft.
    For a more exhilarating time, go straight ahead to spin in the teacups, ride the carousel, eat some popcorn, and test your stomach with a plunge from the highest heights! Wee-eeeeeeee!

    For a more relaxing time, try our world re-known Fox & Grapes Inn.
    -
    With a quaint old world charm, (and a 4 star restaurant serving our locally produced award-winning vintages) it's a lovely romantic getaway.
     After a day of touring the winery, take a horse drawn carriage to dine on your own private island at sunset, join a group to set lanterns aglow into the sky, or just sit in your private hot tub and watch the fireworks from the nearby amusement park.
    We know you'll leave with fond memories of the Fox & Grape Inn.

    The reason that my farm looks the way that it does is because the fact that l have many of building on my farm and I also put the same buildings that I have all together.

    Out on the farm we are taking Coronavirus safety measures very seriously. All the traders are making sure to stay at least six feet apart from each other. :smile:

    I woke up early, as usual, to the sound of a cock crowing. And I had a morning breakfast , then I went out to the main farm for harvesting goods from stables & fields BUT what I saw was very strange. My animals weren’t well, as they looked sad, but I fed them very well, so what is the reason?
    While I'm confused, Jackie approached me. He did not bark, but spoke and said, "We are bored, we want to break the routine." And there I had an idea.
    I put the cowchickenand pig 


    in their cups,
    and Tomand Jackiewent up with me to my blue tractor

    and set out on a trip to " Rikugi-en "

    When we got to the entrance to the park we took a map so that we did not get lost, and the adventure has begun.We went up to the Sherwood ladder house and used a simple telescope to see the entire park, so we decided to walk around all over.
    Wellspring of charity was the first thing that we saw. it was very beautiful so we took selfie & played around it then we continued. While we were walking, my chickenstarted running toward the duck pond to meet her friend the duck so I decided with my pets  to wait  chickenat Arborwhich was near Old tree.
    Meanwhile Tomwent to enjoy at Kitty Kat ride
    After a while I felt hungry so I went to the fast food cart to buy a quick meal and then came   back, but I did not find Jackieand the other animals. I rode the flower bicycle and looked for it until I found them in front bunny heyday Its large size impressed them.
    After that we moved to the festival games, pig went to try sailor ships , cowand chickenfounded  one-cow bandfor music and Jackie
    challenge me in a chess match so we went to Animal chessboard and Tom was the judge. Unfortunately, Jackie was not so lucky that I defeated him.  
    Then we went to the dart stall to buy tickets then to the simple pretzel cart to buy pretzel, I asked Tomto bring  cow, chicken and pig
    . But the pig wanted to ride bumper cars.
    I took others to watch a puppet show. 
    we had lots of fun.
    After that we went to the cold part We rode the Christmas locomotive and toured the cold fun land. We stopped at the Gingerbread house, where we had a lot of candy. Then we continued and we saw snowmen.
    pig 
    cowand chicken
      
    went to the winterly photo wallme Tom & Jackieused wooden toboggans

    to skiing.
    While we were having fun, Santa came on board of comfortable sleigh and took us to the New Year's party. During the party we took gifts boxes.Then we smashed the pinata  to get more candies. And we received messages that my farmer friends from different regions of the world sent to congratulate me on the New Year at Santa's postbox.

    Then Santa covered our eyes with black bars and took us to another place.
    We heard a terrifying howl, so we opened our eyes and saw a great werewolf that looked like he would attack us. So we started running and running, so we lost in the frightening forest and the stillness prevailed at the place. We saw light from afar, so we approached it  AND the animals fell to the land of fear when they saw " scary campfire "  Then I heard the sound of the stomach purring, so I turned back and saw VENUS  chickentrap. It looked very hungry. It approached me and opened its big mouth, so I fainted.
    After a while, I opened my eyes and saw  sign referring to the forest with the “Branch of Fear” written on it, and I realized that what happened was part of the tour.
    Next, we went for drink tea at Magnificent tea garden and eat noodles                          so we could calm down.
    Finally we went to the exit, where Cow Pig Chicken got to know some friends (parrots and squirrels)
    I bought bee balloon & chick balloon from animals balloon seller, In order to remember our exciting trip in the wonderful park. 
                                                                               We went home
                 We arrived at the farm in the evening. We were very tired and suddenly I heard a rooster crowing.
    What
    The sound of a cock crowing in the evening ??. !!!!!
    I opened my eyes and found myself still in THE bed.
    Yes it was a dream

    THE END

    The Sights and Sounds of Nature

    When you go to a farm, you’d expect cows and horses and stuff like that. But on mine there’s a little section of trees and water. The most perfect place to relax when you’re stressed. A beautiful koi pond in the middle with trees surrounding it. With fields of wildflowers at the edge. There’s also a creek and two more ponds. The workers are happy and all is good on the farm.  

    THE END

    Don't read it if you not will cry!  :)

    My farm has frozen to the ice of loneliness.  :#
    No one likes me. No one has respect for me. Even if in years I had broken my legs to make my community grow and emerge. Now they come in rang 1 in all competitions and after it, I was not worthy of them, they cast me out and keep only the who use gold. I received a lot of accusations for things I have never done or had. And how I try to explain them and defend me, was like that I sank more into the mud.
    Someone who knew about me and my friend took advantage of the situation and wrote me awful things. So awful I do not dare bring it up. But also created several thousand farmers and spammed me with horror(nasty things), not least the friend who was before my friend and now she is against me.
    I have been really badly bullied, harassed, and hurt. I got alone, very alone, all my friends left me, only for some false reputation about me. Thereon, one of my friends and one of my relatives died of the corona. How long can a person with a very difficult situation like bullying endure? No ling, I fainted 3 times!
    But, the sun has not set yet :) Just thought to stop playing for forever butt... then a small voice came up when Yarnacle came with his boat, he had someone with him. It was from an unexpected friend! Who had to think I have one who cares about me when everyone is talking bad about me? Yes, a hero ♥ Some understand what going on and give me love, friends love ♥
    Love is something all humans need, without it we die, we can not live alone. We are similar to guppies, they die if they been alone, we do it too!
    Just here on my farm, it shoves its contrasts. My farm is frozen of loneliness but my friends make a celebrate in the snow to make me happier(rural Christmas carol Decko). And to the right, we have a celebration, friend love celebration ♥ and as you see the ice and snow have melted away and it's because of the strong forces of friendship-love.
    This is not only a history, fantasy, or fairy tale, it had happened in the game, in reality. And all that I had written is only a is a pond compared to the whole earth what happened to me and so on.

    This is not a game, this is a community to make people feel better. So, promise me by heart, that be kind to each other and do not make anyone sad because it is not worth it. Feeling good is not always about the body, it is also about how we behave with each other ♥
    Hope this sad event has not made you too sad and that after that the game will be a game where love and happiness take place. ♥♥♥


    ***OBS!!!! I have not written this against any particular player or coop. I have put everything anonymously so as not to make anyone sad♥

    Keep playing and spread love in the digital world ♥♥♥

    I was lost.

    I have played FarmVille for 12 years, but unfortunately it was a Flash game that was discontinued. Then what do you do?
    I went in search of a new game, tried several without pleasure until I found Godgames Studios Bigfarm.
    Finally, a game a bit reminiscent of FarmVille.
    Plant and harvest, build and learn, challenges and requirements along the way.

    I have read and read, surfed the net for guidance, and am still trying my best. I'm a green schooler at level 57 but that's ok, since I have only played since D. 13 December.

    My Main farm is cluttered as I try to make the best use of the space, drive with high happiness and spend very little money.



    But I take a walk around the source of tranquility and enjoy the relaxing sound, eat an ice cream from the ice cream parlor and grill a sausage when I get hungry. Sleeps in the open air and listens to the murmurs of the animals at night.


    My Flower Farm has only one house and one shop, my Gourmet farm has bakery, jam, some fruit and animals. At the Horse Ranch, I train my horse every now and then, start the mine and earn a few dollars.


    On Wednesday, I came up with the idea of ​​just trying out Tessa's Dream World,
    to see if I could earn some diamonds to expand my Apartment Complex, hope it gives a little in the end. I have done almost all the tasks (only the tractor and some plots are missing) and reached level 40, sold and demolished everything again to be able to upgrade the mill and just earn the last diamonds. It's just a shame I can not take my dream dollars with me :-) Not to mention the copper moons, it could be nice if they could be used for something too.


    Right now I'm struggling to make enough money to upgrade my jam, but I have to wait for level 58! It's the worst thing to wait for, either at construction times or at the next level.

    But I enjoy every single moment. It gives my day a breath of fresh air, something to gear down on, after a long day of work in the real world.

    Find the Leprechaun they say. Will be fun they implied. I started my search and low and behold there he was! He got annoyed that I found him so quick that he played a prank and took off to hide again. He ran, I chased, around and around we went. He didn't try very hard, since I found him once again on the other side. Once again he got annoyed and played a prank and once again he took off to hide. This time he's determined to try harder and ran further away to my flower farm. I searched high and low, all around. Found what he had pranked, so he must be nearby. I check out the pier and Oleg telling me to go away cuz I'll scare the fish. Up and down, Left and right, not a clue in sight. Oleg grumbling nothing biting when he found new shiny lures. WAIT! That's not a lure but a gold coin! I asked where he found em and was told he heard a big splash and when he looked to the end of the pier, there was a few scattered about. That pesky prankster must have stumbled off the pier and fell into the harbor. We called in divers and sent out the boats. The fishing nets were used and all that was found were a few clovers tangled in seaweed. Did he fly or swim away? Maybe just snapped his fingers and went poof??? So we built him a house on the edge of the farm overlooking the harbor hoping he may some day return..........


    PS I changed the original ending to keep this G rated. The fish market was producing canned fish at the time........
