But there's more to life than just picking fruits and veg- gies! Below are the five basic things you'll need to master. 1: Clearing Land Grandpa did his best, but there was just too much work. Now its up to you to clear away the rocks and weeds that choke the land. 2: Raising Crops Once the earth is ready, you'll choose from many seasonal veg- etables, flowers, and grass to harvest at the season's end. 3: Meeting the Townsfolk With little exception, the people of the nearby village are friendly and helpful. You're part of their commu- nity now, so get to know them. 4: Caring for Livestock Once you've got the money and resources, you can take on the additional challenge of raising cows, chickens, and/or sheep. 5: Making a Life With the farm on its feet, you can concentrate on the finer things in life. Maybe you'll find the right girl and settle down to start a family. 8 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- HOME ON THE RANGE On you first day, you'll move right into Grandpa's old shack. It isn't much, but it's home, and it does have some charm. Once you've got the money, you can always hire someone to fix it up. Check Your Calendar The calendar by your bed will be handy for keeping track of your days on the farm. You can place icons on the calendar to remind you of important dates, planting schedules, and special events. What's on TV? C Right: Special Events Check Channel 2 for news on festivals and other special events in the area. Well, at least Grandpa had a TV, but what!? No cable?!

If you work to long, you will gradually become exhausted. Food is a good quick fix, but push yourself too hard and you'll get sick. Power Tools The more that you use a tool, the more skilled you become in its use. Hold the B Button and then release it for a power swing. Upgraded tools can be up to three times faster.

Your crops are your primary source of income, so be prepared to spend a lot of time out in the fields. At least your dog will keep you company. 1: Clearing Land The farm is in pretty sorry shape when you arrive, so your first job will be clean-up. Weeds, rocks and stumps will soon make way for a bountiful harvest. Use the Hammer to break up Rocks, or throw them in the well. It takes six blows from the basic Hammer to break a Boulder. It takes six blows from the basic Axe to turn a stump to lumber. Wood can be used for building. Use the Sickle to clear weeds, or pick them by hand. 15 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2: Tilling the Soil Once you've cleared debris from the ground, use your Hoe to pre- pare it for sowing. It is advanta- geous to till 3x3 patches of earth, as most seeds yield nine squares of vegetation. 3: Spreading your Seed Bags of vegetable and grass seed can be purchased at the Village's Flower Shop. Each bag is sown once, covering a 3x3 grid. Each seed must land on tilled soil to take root. 4: Watering your Crops Living things need water to grow. Fill your can at the well, and water each seeded square. Maturing crops can inavoidably prevent you from reaching center buds. Grass needn't be watered. 5: Harvest Use the A Button to pick mature vegetables. Take them to the shipping bin and hit the A Button again to deposit them for sale. Be sure you are close enough to the bin, or you can drop a veggie, ruin- ing it. 16 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Farming Tips and Tricks 1. Plant your crops near the shipping bin and they will be easier, and faster to harvest. 2. You don't need to water your plants on rainy days. If you work too hard in the rain, you'll get sick. 3. Vegetables grow at different rates, and are worth varying amounts, so plan carefully. 4. Crops that have not been harvested by the end of the season will die, so keep track of deadlines. 5. Saddlebags for your horse can hold veggies, making it easier to harvest your entire spread. 6. Watch the clock. Working too late into the night increases the likelihood of getting sick. 7. Check your mailbox regularly for reminders of spe- cial events going on outside your farm. 8. Your dog will be a lot happier if you keep him inside your house during inclement weather. 9. Be careful handling your tools. You can accidentally ruing crops that you've already planted. 17 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- TALK TO THE ANIMALS Caring for livestock on your farm can be a proverbial cash-cow, but it does take a lot of work. Live stock must be fed daily, and cows and sheep should be brushed as often as possible. The Chicken The Barn Coop 1. Chicken Stalls 1.

Shipping Bin Deposit milk and wool here, and it will be sold with the rest of your shipment. Chickens You can raise up to six chickens at a time, and sell their eggs. They are purchased at the Green Ranch, or you can try raise chick's from a hatched egg's. The ranch won't sell you a chicken until you have enough feed. 18 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cattle If kept happy with a daily brushing, your cows can be milked with the milking machine. Also, the Cow Potion can impregnate a cow, and the calf will be yours to raise. Pregnant cows can't be milked. Sheep Sheep live alongside cattle in the barn. Once they have matured from lambs, and you've bought the shears, they can be shorn of their wool, and it can be sold. The wool takes seven days to grow back. Livestock Tips and Tricks 1. Get in the habit of brushing all of your cows, sheep and horse everyday. They'll appreciate it. 2. To insure a happy and healthy bunch of animals, never leave them out in the rain and snow. 3. A particularly healthy and happy cow could win you a prize at one the village's festivals. 4. Animals can graze outside on grass you've planted, but they should be fenced in for protection. 5. You can purchase medicine for a sick cow from the ranch owner. 19 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE WORLD OUTSIDE There is an entire world to explore outside of your quaint little farm. Get out every once and a while and enjoy the great outdoors! You never know what you can find if you take the time. 20 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- MOON MOUNTAIN Keeping a vigilant watch over the countryside is the majestic peak of Moon Mountain. A few rugged souls have made lives for themselves surviving off of the mountain's natural bounty. The Carpenter The Carpenter is one of the hardest working guys around. For the right price, he'll build additions to your home. Sometimes he'll hire on an extra worker for dif- ficult projects.

Be sure to take him up on his offer to show you around and introduce you to everyone. Shops and Village Services Bakery The village bakery has a reputation for quality and freshness. The cookies, pies and cakes there will help you regain some energy. They're all delicious and from recipes handed down over the years. Bar The bar is open in the evenings, and is a good place to unwind after a long day of work. Many of the townsfolk can be found there unwinding. Karen, from the vineyard, serves drinks. Church Most of the village goes to church on Sunday mornings, but it also serves as a schoolhouse for the village’s children. The village's kindly Parson is a good source of encouragement. Florist Florist Lillia sells all the seeds that you'll need. Their selection changes every season. The florist will also provide a lot of helpful information on raising different plants. 22 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Library The Flower Bud Village Library has a large volume of books on a wide array of topics, from art histo- ry, to animal behavior, to technology and science. Maria, the receptionist is the Mayor's daughter. Mayor's House Once of the nicest houses in all of the village is the Mayor's ivy covered manor. It's nestled in the southwest corner of town. The Mayor and his wife are extremely pleasant and helpful people. Midwife The village's midwife has been friends with your family for years, and is like a grandmother to you. She will share recipes with you, and when the time comes, welcome your child into the world. Potion Ship The old man who runs the apothecary is very wise, and is very popular with the villagers. He is always on the look-out for someone to help gath- er medicinal herbs for his compounds. Tool Shop Rick, the shop's proprietor is quite a clever inven- tor. Most of the tools and sundry goods you'll need are found at his shop. There is also a Craft Shop selling ceramics in the adjacent storefront. Town Square The walled cobblestone courtyard of the square hosts most of the town's festivals. The entrance to the Racetrack is on the square's west wall. 23 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE RANCH South of your farm is the Green Ranch. Its owner, his daughter, and her surly brother can sell you livestock and answer most of your questions about animals. A Horse with No Name Be sure to visit the Ranch before the end of the Spring. They are looking for someone to care for a pony. Once the pony has gotten big enough, you can ride him and pack his saddlebags with produce. Buying Cattle Cows, sheep and chickens can all be bought at the Ranch. They will not be sold to you until you have enough fodder to feed them. All the animals are deliv- ered to your farm after you've purchased them. THE VINEYARD Another thriving business in the area is the Vineyard, which supplies all of the town's fine wines. The Wine Maker is rather brusque, and he and his daugh- ter, Karen, are often seen quarreling. Still, his heart is in the right place. 24 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE COUNTRY LIFE All work and no play is no way to live. Take time to enjoy some fun and games and exploration. There are a number of eligible ladies in town, and who knows where flirting could lead.

A Day at the Races Both your dog, and your horse are eligible to com- pete in races sponsored by the village. These races are quite an occasion, and if you're lucky, you can win prizes on wagers. The Supernatural There are stories of fantastic creatures inhabiting the countryside, especially the caves at the base of Moon Mountain. Investigating these rumors could reveal wondrous surprises. 25 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- FESTIVAL SCHEDULE Life in the country revolves around the season, and each season has a number of special occasions marked by the villagers. These events mean a lot to everyone, and are not to be missed.
