    Research allows us to increase our selling prices and our production yield on various goods. It also allows us to increase our membership and decrease the number of collectibles required for projects. Research is managed by Smurf and is tailored to benefit all coop members. Current and upcoming research projects are listed on the coop front page. It is vital that you take your place on our research projects in a timely fashion as non-participation/undue lateness makes you smell bad, which annoys the rest of the team.

    Attachment not found.

    To take your place in research, click on the coop icon at the bottom of your farm, then select the tab on the far right with the orange *Erlenmeyer flask. Find and click on the current research project to add a researcher and then marvel at your own fragrant loveliness. If for any reason you are unable to participate, please contact me, Smurf.

    * see what a knowledgeable Smurf I am :)

    Cooperative Tree

    For every time you water someone's tree you get $200. When a tree has been watered enough it gives valuable collectibles for use in coop projects. It's a no brainer, everyone wins when you water those trees! You should be able to do it twice daily. Click on your tree to get access to the list of coop members, click on them to visit their farm. You should get a pop-up list of names with orange cans next to the ones that need watering, scroll through this and click and water each one until they are all done. Should you forget to water those trees, a small baby animal will die :'(


    Upgrade your dog as soon as possible and be sure to pat him whenever he needs it. Click on his kennel to 'train' him and get lots of experience points.


    Completing projects gives us coop points which increases our rank and gives us mega gloating rights. This is, naturally, very important. It doesn't cost you any money to participate. Max (max999) is our project manager. You can see what project we are running by clicking on the crossed fork and spade on the bottom right of the screen. It shows what we are collecting and how much progress we have made. You contribute simply by harvesting the required items, you do not have to donate or sell them. Max always posts on the coop front page what the next project will be.

    Attachment not found.


    In order to start projects we must first assign a given number of collectibles to it. When all components have been collected, the project is outlined in green with a tick beside it. You will need to be around level 40 to have amassed enough collectibles to donate. To donate, click on incomplete projects and if you have enough items it will show with a green tick.

    The following chart shows which projects need which collectibles:

    Happiness :)

    This is essential for keeping your running costs down. Houses have a negative effect on happiness so you need to offset them by adding happiness to your farm. The easiest route is to buy decorations (decos). Decos can also be won through various events. In addition to decos, upgrading the fence and gate adds happiness to your farm, with the added bonus of not taking up any valuable space. The Retro Classic tractor can also add happiness to your farm without taking up space but it only applies to your main farm. Each individual farm has it's own happiness rating.


    No point re-inventing the wheel here, this site gives all the advice you will need: http://big-farm-addiction.wikia.com/wiki/Events. Chris (bdreish) always sends out a coop message with a precis of the different stages for themed events so that you have an easy reminder to hand.

    Missions/Coop Challenge

    Even if you hate missions, you can still partake and win points without any great effort on your part. Start up a mission when you log on, go water some trees if it is taking it's time. Remember that you get reputation points even if you don't win. If you happen to catch a crazy gold player then so much the better - you will often get more points for second place against some nut with 45,000 eggs than you would coming first against a smaller player.

    Dung/Eggs: These are is great if you catch them when you first log on as you will have all your animals ready and will stand a better chance of winning. Even so you'll be harvesting your animals for cash at any rate (3 chicken harvests every 30mins) you may as well get the reputation points for playing whether you win lose or draw. Fire up your powerhouse tractor if it's available before harvesting as it will increase your cash as well as your dung. These missions pay well in certs and reputation points.

    Corn/Flowers: These mission give less rewards than eggs and dung but chances are you will be planting one or the other so you may as well get the points for it.

    Remember: Points Mean Prizes! There are some really high end decos and other useful prizes available during the coop challenge, the more you play the more we all win. Don't forget, you will also win certs which you can use to increase happiness, add workers, exchange for humus or increase harvest yields via the various farm machines in your garage.

    Hi all

    I am Carrie (Carrianne9)

    I am the newbie mentor so if you have any questions at all however silly they may sound please ask me. I was new once and with the help of the members I was able to build my farm to where it is now.

    we have a lot of fun especially when we chat, it feels like your chatting to lifelong friends.

    I live in East Anglia uk. I work during the day but I am on here first thing in the morning and in the evenings.

    the main thing is to have fun and ask if you need anything

    Hi Gang, I am sure you all know who I am by my inane ramblings on the chat but I will formally introduce myself. (There's posh) I live in Portugal but am British by birth. I work from home so can be around the computer most of the day and , because the game is so addictive, most of the night as well. I run the projects for the team and generally make a nuisance of myself with my obsessive cheerleading. (Go Gang Go) Pom-pom shaking is a requirement of every team member. :) I post the present and next projects on the noticeboard in full chat and try to keep you up to date with our progress. Feel free to suggest anything to me( even if it is just to shut up - lol). Haapy Farming Gang. 8)

    haha Yodel. Don't be shy. I'll bet there are some cool moves in there somewhere. ;)

    Someday I am going to take a moment to edit my posts before I send them, but then I am a New Yorker and people from New York rarely take a moment to stop, let alone breathe. I am not sure where we think we are all headed to but maybe as far away from Washington D.C. as possible. We all are not fools despite international polls; but I am thinking of making the Great Escape to Europe, probably the U.K. if everyone there is as nice as this group. !!!! JP 8)

    step 1 -collect fertilizer and start cherries
    Step 2 - find ink paints ( fields and stables)
    step 3 - collect egg / cabbage / rice
    step 4 - find cherry blossoms ( Orchards )
    step 5 - supply pigsties with pig feed and collect pigs
    step 6 - get origami cranes - everywhere (silo, composters, mill.orchard and fields)


    step 1 : collect cabbages
    step 2 : find coconut - everywhere (fields,stables,orchards,mill,compoter and silo)
    step 3: make milk available
    step 4 : find sea shells - orchards and fields
    step 5 : collect apples and cherries
    step 6 : find blossoms - everywhere (fields,stables,orchards,mill,composter and silo )

    Hi, I am in the Southern Tier of Central NY. about 10,north of the PA. Border. The Chenango and Susquehanna Rivers meet in my town. It started out in the 1700's as a trading post, then became a resort town for vacationing New York City upper class because of the river resorts. Later in the 1900's, IBM was formed here along with
    Mc Intosh Speakers, Singer Link Aviation Simulators for air and ocean training, Ansco Film and Cameras originated here as well as E J Shoes which made most of the military boots in WWII for the U.S.

    All things must end though and now all these businesses are gone but we have SUNY at Binghamton and we are becoming a college town now. We have the 5th oldest zoo in the nation here, Ross Park though it is small and quaint. I lived up in Nashua for a while in my teens. Beautiful country where you are. JP

    The bright side:
    1. By breeding.... the foal is better than it's parents.
    2. Training goes much faster.....just one training in full intensive (cost 4000 shells), raise the new horse from level 1 to level 14.
    (Breeding effects will make your foal quicker in training.)

    Don't forget, how many training points you get depends on your arenas levels...the higher the arena, the more training points during intensive training
    (each level upgrade will increase 41 training points)
