It’s new farm time again. Buckle your seatbelts because FarmVille Story of Sakura is going to be a wild ride. There will be many new elements to this farm beginning with Early Access. As we know from the event, Early Access will begin on March 14th – at least for the first time. This farm will also be longer in duration than the normal 8 weeks, a full 14 week farm. Early access will cost 45 farm cash. IMPORTANT NOTE: YOU WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO PURCHASE EARLY ACCESS THE FIRST WEEK OF THE FARM. IF YOU DO NOT PURCHASE AT THAT TIME, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET EARLY ACCESS TO THE OTHER THREE REGIONS! THINK IT THROUGH AND MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOU. When deciding, keep in mind that the Sakura Combine costs 30 Farm Cash Separately and will work on all terrains. There will be coin vehicles for water at some point, but we do not know when they will release. We do not yet know if there will ever be coin vehicles for Zen. Without further delay, your Dirt Farmer team has a preview of all the details for you. Please share….

As we alluded to in our Story of Sakura sneak peek post , the studio has promised more value for our early access dollars this time. They promised 300 farm cash worth of for farm cash
Remember there will only be the initial week opportunity to buy early access, you will not be able to buy during the other three early access periods.
In a rather pleasant change, one of the reminder pop-ups has a “do not show this again “ option. If only all pop-ups had that so we could have just the ones we individually want. If you like this post in our ASK The Dirt Farmer group, which the FarmVille Studio reads and let them know you would like this choice on more popups.
Now let’s have a look at how that breaks down. As you can see there will be 5 early access crops, 4 animal gifts, 2 starter packs, 2 weeks of harvest bonuses, 4 costumes and a combine. Quite a bit more than usual for our 45 Farm Cash.
