Farmville Tips and Tricks That Work

Farmville Logo


Some believe Farmville is a good application on Facebook. I disagree I believe its the BEST application on Facebook. In this article I will tell you about a few things that can help you level much quicker than you thought you could.

You may or may not have read my previous Farmville Tips and Tricks That Work here but now its time to update those old tricks and show beginners some updated tips and tricks.

So what are you waiting for!

So Where do we Begin:

First things first, if you don’t have a Facebook account go to and sign up for an account. Next head over to to start playing Farmville.

There are many begginers tutorials around so check them for the basics then come back to this page to maximize your earnings.

Some basic tips:

  • Don’t play 24/7!  When I first started I used to just do my daily activities then just sit there waiting for something to happen. This is wrong, you should do activities then check back at a later time or date. This will maximize your leveling.
  • Don’t be obsessed with the look and feel of your Farm. Who cares if its ugly at first. When you level up and have more coins you can make it look much much better than if you make it look good at all times.
  • Have Fun! This is a game and games are meant to be fun. If you feel addicted or play just for the sake of becoming a higher level and better than others than maybe you should take a break. When your having fun you naturally play better.

Speed up Farmville:

In order to play at a faster speed in time meaning more experience you may need to adjust some settings or turn them off completely.

Obvious things are:

In the upper left corner of the game screen there are three buttons:

  • Toggle graphics quality
  • Sound on/off
  • Music on/off

I also recommend you play in the Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera or similar browser. Not Internet Explorer.

Step to Step Guide:

Level 1 – 5: To get started, you will need 10 plots that are empty or that need to be plowed. Just calculate how much money you will need when you really want to harvest, such as watermelon tha take 4 days to harvest but sell fir 348 FarmVille coins. You are not going to be planting the watermelons right away in these plots. You are going to need 1300 FarmVille coins so try and gather that much and do not spend any money on anything. You will also need 150 coins for plowing those future watermelons plots.

Plow your 10 plots and then buy soybeans. It will cost 150 coins to plow and 150 coins to plant soybeans, but delete those plots using the shovel tool immediately after seeds have been planted.

You might ask yourself why you should delete FarmVille plots in order to gain experience level points, but plowing and planting soybeans will gain you 30 points on those 10 plots. You can repeat this trick process, every time you do it it will cost you 300 FarmVille coins. This is the cost for plowing and planting. Your FarmVille experience will quickly rise and you will become a step closer to reaching your goals. After you have all the wanted experiences gained a new level, you can plant the exact seeds that you wanted to buy. You can even expedite this way by using your harvester, tractor, and seeder if you already have them.


Also add lots of friends and neighbors.

Quickly earn the following ribbons quickly: Popularity, Shutterbug and Pack Rat.

Level 5-15: I then recommend planting strawberries and collecting them to earn profit and experience. If this takes too much time you may also continue planting soybeans. Once you get raspberries start planting them as you earn lots of money in a short period of time.

Get ribbons by buying animals and getting different types of trees from friends. Ribbons are always valuable as a boost to your money and experience and it is easier to get them as you level up.


Level 15-20: Once you get to peppers, plant them as they are a great source of money and experience. By now you should have more than 10 friend so click on their farms every day and do tasks to try and earn the Good Samaritan Award. You can manage your friends farms even if they are not your neighbor.

Once you reach blueberries plant them for a faster profit.

Level 20-25: Now you can plant tomatoes which are the number one profitable crop in the game. Just keep planting these until you reach level 25.

You should now have a lot of ribbons. Before progressing try to earn as much as you can. You should also have a lot of money and which you can spend on cottages, windmills and other similar items for experience. You should also be tending to neighbor farms and have lots and lots of friends.

Level 25 and beyond: Now it should be fairly easy for you to do what you do. Your farm should be upgraded and if not you can upgrade it with farmcash or coins. You should be checking your farm every now and again and especially planting just before you sleep and checking in the morning. You should also plant crops that take longer to grow such as potatoes or corn.

At this point you must have your farm upgraded to the maximum amount. If not do this with either farmcash or coins.

Never buy any vehicles at this stage. The fuel will run out very quickly and you will waste your farm cash. You may bye them at a later stage once you have more experience and cash.

Send gifts to your friends everyday so they can send them back.

Thats it! Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks:


Your crops will take time to harvest. During this time go and meet people on forums, pages such as this, chat rooms and leave a message saying: Add me as a neighbor or Send me a gift.

This way you will be more involved in the community and this will get you notices and help you increase your level, exp and more. A great way to do this is to simply search the web. Also try to add lots of neighbors not based on their level but on how active they are and how much you know them.

Send any Gift:

When sending gifts you will notice that a gift value will appear in the URL hyperlink.

Zynga has preventing the displaying of this URL to ensure players don’t send gifts not on their gift page.

Example 1 (Gifting to Friends):

Example 2 (Wishlist URL):

Replace the value in the url with any value you want, paste into your browser, press enter and watch the magic. Refer the the chart below for known VALUES.

Farmville Chart

Accept and Give Gift:

Send gifts to people and also accept gifts coming your way. You will make more connections with the community and increase your EXP. This will also help you get more neighbors.


Sell any items you don’t need. Your first priority should be goals such as ribbons or exp, not money but if you have items lying around doing nothing then the smart thing to do is to sell them.

Consider your land:

Different crops, animals and trees take up different areas of land. Compare these and find what gives you the most profit for the amount of land it takes up. A square is a small amount of land which can be taken up by something such as a tree. These are narrow and tall. Animals can take up different areas depending on their size but can take up 9 squares (3×3). All crops take up a plot which is 4×4 for 16 squares.

By finding out the Income per Hour and area of each item you can find out what items are best to increase your money, experience and level.  Some items take a certain number of hours to mature such as Raspberries which take around 2 hours. Others can take up to a few days such as Peach Trees or Lime Trees.

So consider  your time, space and income and shortlist items to the ones that suit you.

Faming Space

Install the Zynga ToolBar for Cash

Head over to: and install the toolbar by Zanga, the creaters of Farmville to earn some quick cash. You get 10 coins just for installing and this has been tested by me.

Make sure you have ?var=Cash on the end of the URL or you will not receive any money.

Turn Facebook Credits into Farmville Cash!

Facebook Credits are things you can use to buy money, upgrades in your favorite Facebook games. However this cost money and most people don’t want to pay money to upgrade their Farmville. Well now you can get some credits for free!

Head over to: and you can earn a free 5 Facebook credits.

10 Facebook Credits is equal to $1 USD.

So head over to Google and search for how to get Free Facebook Credits. Some offers will appear every once in a while and once you save up you can buy Farmville money for FREE!

Advertise your Own Farmville Guide

Earn real money by advertising your own Farmville Guide. You may do this at many places such as Triond (one of my personal favorite money earning sites) or by greating your own blog.

I’m happy to advertise peoples guides on my website for free in return for a link back to my website.

You can then exchange this new money into Farmville cash.

Mystery Gifts

You can get Mystery gifts through freinds and neighbors. Although its quite rare ask your Farmville friends to send you some and you could find some Farmville cash.


There are many competitions on Farmville at Go ahead and apply for them and sometimes you will see free items or free cash so be sure to check regularly.

Tricks to Adopting More Animals:

Farmville allows players to buy animals and send them to Facebook friends using the gift feature. The animals that you can currently buy are cow, sheep and chicken. You can gift animals depending on your level. People usually gift chicken, sheep, goats, cows and horses. FarmVille also has a adopting feature. This allows users to adopt available animals that are abandoned. Animals that are available for adopting are black sheep, brown cow, regular brown and white cow and ugly duckling.

An ugly duck can transform into a swan. This is very good because swans can give you swan feathers which you can harvest for money. Adopting is free so its a way of getting animals that you can harvest for money without actually spending anything.

So how can you adopt more? Well there is a trick that I am going to share with you.

Before you start, make sure your familiar with the adopting processing. You will receive alerts if there is a black sheep, cow or ugly duckling that needs your help and is homeless. The alert will tell you if you are willing to accept the animal and give it a home. If you accept then FarmVille will leave a post on your wall that will give your Facebook the option to Adopt to save the animal. The adopted animal is then placed on the owners farm. The owner can then chose to harvest from it or they can choose to sell it more money.

If you really want lots of animals to adopt it is better if you have lots of FarmVille friends and neighbours. You can add more FarmVille neighbours to your Facebook account by posting an ad on Zynga’s FarmVille application page. This way you will get many more neighbours to help you with the adopting trick.

Your friend needs to have a Adoption Wall Post on their wall in order for you to actually adopt an animal. Check the main Facebook wall of all your friends by clicking on Home and try to scan through finding Adoption Posts. There will not be many most of the time as other Farmville Players users quickly take then. If you are fast enough you can easily get some adoptions.

Facebook also does not list every wall post by every single friend. So you have to know who your FarmVille friends are so that you can check their walls and see if they have any Adoption Wall Posts. Also click on ribbon celebration links to get yourself some free coins.

FarmVille Ugly Duckling

Also try to get friends to try and make Posts available so that you can quickly adopt. Ugly ducklings are rare to adopt but if you manage to acquire some they can be sold for 100 coins when they turn into Swans. FarmVilleis exciting and you can also make your friends jealous if you have many swans on your farm to display. However, don’t waste too much space for the Swans.

How much do you adopt every day on FarmVille. In a single day I manage to get a few, anywhere from 1 to 10! You just need to be active and quickly take all available animals ready for adoption. There is no way to predict when animals to adopt will come but they will come over certain periods of time.

Keep and eye on your friends and higher level FarmVille users becuase they can help you maximize your adopting speed.
