Farmer icon.pngFarmers till fields and harvest crops, providing a consistent food supply and raw materials for baked goods.

Job Information[edit | edit source]

The Farmer Job allows the player to grow food for their hearthlings. Workers can be promoted into Farmers once you have acquired a Farmer's Hoe, which is crafted by the Carpenter. Once a Worker has been promoted, the Farmer can plow fields and plant crops. The crops can later be harvested and used as food. Flowers can be crafted into decorations whilst herbs can be used by the Herbalist.

Farmers will also help with gathering of resources, but are unable to work on buildings.

Farmers are distinguished from normal Workers because of their light blue shirts with brown sleeves. Farmers also have a little light brown pouch on their backs and straw hats.

Idle Cooks will also help with harvesting.

Note, that when you've planted a crop that has a higher level requirement than your highest active Farmer, the Farmers / Cooks will be able to harvest those crops but not replant them.

Crops[edit | edit source]

You can choose different crops for your Farm plot. Some crops / flowers / herbs are supplied by traders. For some seeds that aren't available to your civilisation, these can later be acquired via trading after achieving Town status via building a monument.
