Non contest



I have a little gold to give away and I'm nosy 


Do you remember RowdyRac's Non Contest?

What is in a Name ?

Rowdy asked you to write a post, telling the story of your Big Farm player name.

Well, I want to know your Farm names.

Where did they come from? Why did you choose those name? (or did it choose you?)

Have you named them all?


If your story makes us giggle or laugh, or stand open-mouthed in amazement, or just touch a heart-string in an unexpected way, some gold may make it's way to your farm in appreciation.

The contest (that is not a contest  :)  ) will close on
the 30th of May at midnight CEST

So grab a mug of something warming and come tell us your story; we'd love to hear it!

    • Blue Denim (US1)

      My name is Blue Denim, it has been My name for My whole life basically, I go by Blue mostly but Denim came from the fact that I luv to wear a few things made of Jean Denim material like Jeans, Jacket, Tops and such, My Nationality is also Indian from 2 types of tribes, Blackfoot & Iroquois, My Ancestors traveled from Canada among a few other far away places to the US, I have  made different characters in My other games I play and gave them My name, I have Warriors, Sorcerers, Archers and such that I use when I play My other games, My favorite color used to be Blue when I was younger, but now it is Purple & Black, cause I am more into Gothic type things for a few years now, that is how My Big Farm game got My  name  .

    I think I added this to the original thread for a 2nd time, I could not delete it, so I left it, :)

  • Those who followed the BBC drama "Ripper Street" will know where my game name comes from!
    The character of Bennet Drake was by far my favorite character because of his dedication and loyalty, but also because he is so very flawed, a "Shakespearian" tragic character for whom everything seems to go wrong, no matter how hard he tries. So, in a sense, the name chose me. I've always been drawn to those characters in fiction that are flawed, underdogs; yet in the end their strength and character remains foremost.
    Many of my farm names are also based in aspects of the show, like my Main Farm: Rose Garden. Rose is the girl Bennet Drake falls in love with, but she does not realize what a good thing she has in him.
    My Gourmet Farm: Goluba Gourmet is based on a word from season 4, where Goluba (and I'm not sure of the spelling) is said to mean "dove".
    My fishing boats all have "Ripper" names mixed with seaside terms or other things from naval fiction: Moby Drake, Twinkletanic (the character of Homer Jackson goes by the nickname "Twinkle"), Ripper Tide, Whitecappel, SubmaReid, Bennet Bounty, Jack the Clipper and so on.
    I started playing the game when watching the show, so it's a tribute, in my mind, to excellence.

    If you've read Rowdies thread then you will know that "Uncle John" was my uncle and was actually a farmer.
    His address was "Yew Tree Farm" which my mf is named after
    His wife,my aunty Twink, was an awesome cook on a big coke-fired Aga. Hence my gf is "Twinks Kitchen"
    and my other farms are named for their four children, my cousins, Sheila, Rodney, Geoffrey and Ian.
    I small tribute to a man who, in the 3 summers I spent helping harvest, had an enormous hand in making me who I am.  He died when I was in my twenties before I realized just how much he had done for me.

    hello  everyone ;) , hope u r all doing well. anyway my farm name is Khadj1234well 'khadj' is short for my name khadijah and khadj is also a nickname that some people call me.
    the 1234 part  erm... like I think I don't really know why I put that there at the time yo be honest ,but probably maybe because it was too short  :# not so sure to be honest but you could say that 1234 represents the 4 people who helped me build my farm  :wink: .
    okay now about my farm names :blush:
    1.My main farm is called : Mcdonalds - I named it that because you know the nursery rhyme the one about a farm so I named my main farm after that rhyme 
    2. My Gourmet Farm is called : live life - im not so sure about this one I think oh yh so basically I couldn't think of a name to name it so I asked my gran and she said live life because of how there are dandelions and you make a wish and blow them so that's why its called LiveLife 
    3. My Flower Farm is called: RosePetals - I named it that because my favourite flowers are roses and my birth flower is also rose :smirk:
    4. My Decor Farm is called : BlingBling - I'm not so sure to be honest why I named it this it might be because you know when decorations are nice and clean and they shine? maybe that's why ,not so sure :expressionless:
    5. My Fishing Region is called : LittleSeaLand - I named it that because you know how sea life centre and like how there is so many fishes there ,so I named it after sea life centre kind of  :#
    6. My Horse Ranch is just : Horse Ranch
    7. My Candy Farm is called : sugarTreat - I named it sugar treat because you know how candy is sweet and you get treats that are sweet so that's how I got the name CugarTreats :smile:
    8..The obsidian farm is unknown for me :smile:
    yh so that are the reasons to the names :blush:

                                                
                                                          <3 special Thanks To Creator Barbiecharm(IN1)  o:)

    Woodlawn Farm is how I refer to the first farm I bought in my 20's which is near Woodlawn, Ks and thought that would be fitting for the main farm which is the first farm in the game.  

    Maple Hill Farm was name given to the gourmet farm.  My parents farm was given this same name by early owners according to a early Kansas history book I once read.

    The flower farm I named Merry Meadows.  Seemed fitting to me as all those scented flowers ought to make one merry.  (Side note:  My trawlers are named after flowers that I like to grow.)

    Heart and Soil is the name given to the cooperative village which is the coop I am in.

    Just named the horse ranch, Horse Ranch, as not a creative person.

    Deep sea fishing I named the Bermuda Triangle in honor of that sunken ship in fairly shallow waters to be found there.

    Great Plains named given to the decoration farm, again a reference to area I live in and the place I have those great decos.

    The temporary farms get temporary names.  Currently Island Farm but in beginning often called them Money Pit  for obvious reasons.

    Wishing all Happy Farming,
    Bill
