Sunflower Meadows is now in your backyard! Farmville by Zynga has released the apparent first in a series of mini-farms with a special connection to the Home Farm. Check out all the details below and please share with friends if you find the post helpful.
Special thanks to DF team member Dennis for the majority of information and images contained herein and to Farmer Denis for comparison images.
The highlighted patch is where you will need to click to travel to Sunflower Meadows. The purple patch beside it is a small teaser showing the next possible mini farm.
When you click on the highlighted patch it will ask you if you wish to purchase access to Sunflower Meadows. Access can be purchased for either 199 Farm Cash or 200 million Farm Coins.
You may have noticed that the images in this post show Sunflower Meadows with different backgrounds/themes. Sunflower meadows does not have it’s own unique color themes. Instead, it will take on the color characteristics of your home farm at the time when you purchase access and travel to Sunflower Meadows for the first time.
Experiments conducted by DF team member Dennis in changing the theme of his home farm after traveling did not change the theme of the meadows. It remained on the theme his home farm was on at the time of purchased access through travel and refreshing. Make sure you have your home farm on the theme you prefer for Sunflower Meadows prior to purchasing access. We do not know if this will change in the future, but will be sure to update you if it does.

What you get.
Sunflower Meadows access includes the horse and tree pictured here and shared storage with your home farm. The storage comes with the yellow barn which has 20 storage slots upon arrival. You can place a storage cellar on Sunflower Meadows for additional storage capacity. You can only access the items in Sunflower Meadows storage from shared storage within home farm storage, not from other farms for which you own shared licenses with the home farm. Your usage may exceed your depth on either home or Sunflower Meadows when you hover, due to the game recognizing the combined depth of both. In an interesting surprise, a free Spooky Lantern Tree – the same gift for early access to Haunted Hollow was found in the gift box of those who purchased.
It is a 12x12 expandable farm. At the current time, expansions for Sunflower Meadows are only available up to 36x36 and only for farm cash.
Aside from the proprietary horse and tree waiting to greet you upon arrival, Sunflower Meadows is unique in that there are no themed market items to go with it. There is also no indication at this time of specialized quests planned for this farm. It is extra space to do with whatever you wish.
You can travel to and from Sunflower Meadows only from the home farm, it is not accessible via the normal travel menu.
