[Top 7] Stardew Valley Best Farms That Are Excellent
Which one will you choose?

When you just start playing Stardew Valley, you're going to have to create your character using the intuitive character builder. Besides this, you also have to choose the type of farm you want to start on. Each of the 7 farms has a different layout, as well as different pros and cons that will change the way you fundamentally play the game, since some farms will not allow you to use specific game mechanics, like sprinklers. Changing the starting farm should be done when you're already familiar with the game, and know how to use each farm to your advantage.

7. Wilderness Farm

Wilderness Farm (Reddit, u/prikaprim)

This farm has a special emphasis on combat and training your fighting skills. It's best for those players who do not wish to indulge in farming too much and just want to murder things at night. The map also features two ponds so you can fish, as well. When it comes to farmable land, there is a considerable space to fill with crops and buildings, so if you do choose to do things other than fighting at night, you can.

What the Wilderness Farm is great for:

  • Training you skills
  • Fighting monsters
  • Improving in the Adventurer's Guild

Wilderness Farm cons:

  • Less space to farm because of the cliff and ponds
  • Constantly fighting monsters can get annyoing

Farm rating: 50/100

6. Hill-top Farm

Hill-top Farm

This farm is great for players that want to emphasize mining and improve their mining skill. One of the main features of this farm, besides the ore that periodically spawns on the premise, is the river that runs along the length of it, allowing you to fish, if you choose to do so. Unfortunately, by the time your farm actually starts producing useful resources, you'll have already found the same ones in The Mines.

What the Hill-top farm is great for:

  • Periodically mining ore
  • Fishing

Hill-top farm cons:

  • Limiting space
  • Ore takes a long time to become useful

Farm rating: 60/100

5. Beach Farm

Beach Farm

Once you get the hang of Stardew Valley, you'll start utilizing different game mechanics such as sprinklers. However, on this farm, sprinklers do not work, so you're going to be quite limited when it comes to automatic crop watering. However, since the map is so large, your animals will have more than enough room to graze, and your buildings can be organized however you wish. There is also the option of fishing on this map with crab traps, which will yield mussels, among other sea creatures.

What the Beach farm is great for:

Lots of land
Supply crates

Beach Farm cons:

No sprinklers
Meant to be a challenge farm

Farm rating: 70/100

This is great for players who do not want to plant crops as much but want some sort of income to be produced by their farm. It has the fewest farmable tiles out of any map, but the foraging for berries and other things you can do hugely makes up for it!

What the Forest Farm is great for:

  • Foraging
  • Trees
  • Fishing

Forest Farm cons:

  • Not much space
  • Limited production

Farm rating: 70/100

  • Limited space
