Animal Comp Speed Fix

Ever gone to work on someone’s farm, all excited that you’re gonna earn some money, only to load their farm and get blasted with 10,000 little critters ravaging around everywhere? I’m not trying to sound cocky, but I’ve got a pretty fast computer, and I’ve hit some people’s farms that literally froze my FireFox for a few seconds.

There IS a fix for this though, the Farm Town team was nice enough to see the error in their ways and corrected it, here’s how:

1. Select the Preferences Tab (Looks like a Wrench or Tool!)

Select Preferences

2. Check the “Freeze Animals” box.

Preferences Tab

3. Click the green Save Preferences arrow.

Now the animals won’t move, and it greatly increases your computer’s speed when loading that militia of critters! To enable animals running around again, just go back into preferences and un-check that setting!


  1. hello, I just wanna say thank you for this website. It was very helpful in some of my questions that I had. I was wondering what that freeze animals button was and now maybe my computer will go faster. Thank you again.

  2. Your information is fabulous! Thank you so much! I’ve become addicted to this game, and now I’ll be able to play it smarter, because of the tips you’ve provided.


  3. Thank you for this wonderful site. I enjoy reading your tips and hints.

    I have been online for about 10 years and never wanted to play computer games. Then I found Farmtown………LOL……………I love it!!!

    I have two farms currently and I am thinking of starting a third.

  4. why is it on myspace one has to have their friends in the top 20. to invite them to be a neighbor. unfortunatley there are some of us who have close to 5 thousand frnds. and at times it makes it impossible to go thru them all? thank you for the site it is a helful tool

  5. I have been using the freeze animals for a long time, Its kinda funny though when harvesting tall crops all of a sudden you run on to a dog of a chick lol
    thanks for the website

  6. Thank you for the tips on waterfalls, I saw one when I was working on a farm and she directed me to this site otherwise I never would have found you. Thanks so much for putting up this site, it is very helpful..I am level 33 and just about bored to death because I couldn’t come up with anything new to do.. then..voila..I found you. thank you so much.

  8. Hi Kimbee this is Mary and I am the one who directed you to this website. This is really a great place to learn all about our farms. Thank you so much for it.

  9. Farmtown seems a little wierd to me…. a farm with out a TRACTOR!!…hmmmmmmmmmmm!!Mayb in the future someone might arrange a john deer for us…lol..!!!

  10. Can anyone help me with harvesting and plowing faster? I have seen people harvest and plant really fast, and I can’t seem to do that. I have tried planting from right to left as the tutorial shows, I have made sure that the Plow/Plant was not checked up under the wrench and that does not work either. What am I doing wrong? Can anyone help me?
