Planting Crops Closer

Visited someone else’s farm and curious as to how they made their crops not have the space in between them? This isn’t a coincidence, and they aren’t hacking.. well they might be hacking but they aren’t doing THIS with a hack at least.

** There is an actual EXPLOIT to make this process even faster, please check back as we’ll be posting it soon! **

Farm Town defaults your crop planting abilities to having that space between each plowed plot, not only is this annoying.. but it’s extremely inefficient for your farming because it limits the amount of plows you have greatly. Without the spaces you can produce far more harvests overall, and luckily there’s a fix!

Difference in Plowing

As the picture to the left shows, the cabbage is placed directly beside each other to the point where you don’t see that annoying space.. whereas the peas are planted with the spacing in between and are taking up tons of farming space, having no spaces in between literally gives you the ultimate harvesting abilities.

Now the question that you’re dying to ask us is, “How in the heck did you do this?! And how do I do it!!!” Well hold your horses and keep reading, like we said, it’s an extremely easy fix!

I really don’t understand why Farm Town defaults the space, personally I feel it should be the other way around.. default the non-space plowing and allow people to choose to add a space.. anyways, here’s the fix:

1. Select Preferences

Select Preferences

2. Check “Remove Space Between Fields”

Select Remove Spaces

3. Click the Green arrow to save your changes

4. Bulldoze all of your old fields and then plow them without the spaces! 🙂

    1. Is this the same as crop stacking? I harvested a field yesterday with pineapples growing on top of blueberries. Not only was it a brilliant use of crop space, and a money maker, it was also very pretty with the blueberries peeking out between the pineapples.

    1. This happened to me too and I couldn’t figure out what happened…check to see if your neighbor is blocked. I didnt realize it, but my neighbor was at my place and I was seeding and he was standing in my way, so I clicked “ignore” and without realizing it, I blocked him from being on my farm and/or doing any work. Go back to your preferences and see who you’ve ignored!!

  1. i dont where 2 go 2 talk about my problem..
    yesterday i hired a girl 2 harvest at my farm with one condition.. she cannot harvest my trees.. and she agreed not 2 do that..
    suddenly when she at my farm and finish harvesting all my crops.. she go 2 my trees and harvest all my trees..
    so the question is.. how i want 2 fired someone that i hired 2 harvest?
    because of some reason the harvester doesnt care what they doing at other ppl farm.. so plz someone or anyone help me 2 solve my problem…

      1. that only takes them off your farm, but on their’s they are still on yours workin so it doesn’t work been there done that

    1. I’ve had that to happen as well. I start hiding each tree when they are headed to it. They get frustrated & leave. I am also YELLING at them in all upper case letters.

      1. If you hire them to harvest crops – they can’t get to the trees. If you just hire them just to harvest…they can harvest everything.

    2. turn your trees off before you go to the market to hire. Click on the wrench at the top right. I do it everytime and they caN’T HARVEST WHat they don’t see. I also do this before I go in to work at anyone’s farm. No Accidents.

    3. yeah they should make it to where you can freeze your trees that you don’t want harvested I’ve had that happen to me too people just don’t care

    4. There is a place when you hire someone to click “Hire to Harvest Crops” click that one and it will not give them access to your trees or flowers.

  2. can you tell me the right things that are surpose to be checked on the weach and things that are not so i can harvest faster instead of moving or danceing around so muc thank you

    1. I click off trees, buildings, flowers and freeze animals. Also, right click on your mouse nd see if you are on low qulity. That helps a whole lot.

    1. I agree, Georgia. It costs to re-do the plots, doesn’t it? With any luck they will re-design, so that we can just move plots. On the whole though, I am impressed with “Klikster” and the tips and suggestions. This is my first time checking out this site! Thanks to the guys who developed FarmTown – somewhere to get away from the noise of technology (cell phones, ipods, etc, etc) and enjoy the visuals of technology – but it doesn’t really feel like technology. Here’s to ‘the kid’ in all of us who play! 🙂

  3. I know how to double stack crops! They thought they killed it but they never. LOL
    You need to open 2 facebook farmtown windows.
    In the second one you need to disconnect from the mainframe. You can only plant crops that are ready at the same time but not the same crop. There is a 20 sec delay fro saving so you go to first window and plant ONE ROW AT A TIME. then open second & plant on the exact same row. Go back & forth till it’s all planted. It’s time consuming but ya get dble the money.! 🙂

      1. If you use FireFox as your Internet browser it’s easy because you can open multiples of any web site. Just open one and start your utlity or application then open the same web site again. I haven’t tried the double planting/stacked planting but I can see that it’s an idea that could work.
        I’m not sure if the same technique would work on Internet Explorer -it’s been so long since I used that browser.

  4. how can i harvest faster…some avatars harvest so quickly and I have to wait forever to harvest the next crop…is there a secret I am missing out on?

  5. how to unlocked the trees?…im on level 34 now but the trees is still me please i need more trees for my farm…

  6. I finally figured out how to get my spaces so close together by using this website, and I did. I deleted all of my old spaces and put the new ones right next to each other. I planted corn on them and they all disappeared. It doesn’t say corn field 0% or anything, and I can’t plow anywhere either. I’ve messed with all of my preferences and the quality. I’ve also refreshed and still nothing. HELP ME!
