Radio show summary logo

Howdy Farmers!  Have you ever wished that you could listen to the Dirt Farmer Radio show, but you couldn't?
Maybe you were out plowing the back 40, or milking the cows, or even sowing some wild oats.
Maybe you haven't figured out how to join that new fangled contraption, the dirt box. 
Maybe it's just a little too hard to hear the show.  Well Papa Dirt has a surprise for you!
  We hope that you enjoy this week’s EXCITING edition of the Dirt Farmer Gazette,
a summary of many of the important subjects discussed on the show. 
If you like it, please remember to share with your fellow farmers!

Raffle Booth Update




It looks like it may be worth sending out RAFFLE TICKETS in the CARNIVAL BOOTH once again.
As promised on our DIRT FARMER LIVE FARMVILLE STUDIO INTERVIEW last month,
the FarmVille Studio has updated the RAFFLE BOOTH.
There will be 3 NEW rewards as well as some consumables.
You still have a 1 in 25 chance of getting a 25 pack of SDB's,
A 1 in 20 chance of winning 5 cans of Fuel,
The odds are 1 in 50 that you will win 3,
yes THREE Ornamental Cats...even though we have no idea why we need 3.
There is a 1 in 200 chance to win a Tropical Flower Pegasus
and finally
the top prize this past week see's us with a 1 in 500 chance to win a Fantasy Gazebo.
We hope that the studio plans to continue updating the Raffle Booth rewards.
We have less than 4 hours before these current set of Raffle Booth Prizes re-set.
Some players were very disappointed to see the old prizes when they played the raffle
but fear not
the Dirt Farmer soon discovered that you only need to play
the 1 round of the old items and use the tickets you have available.
Then wait 7 days for the NEW Raffle to start and receive the NEW ITEMS at that time.

Odds 1:500 Odds 1:200 Odds 1:50 Odds 1:20 Odds 1:5

Papa Dirt’s Poll of the Week



The Dirt Farmer wants to know:
Will you play the RAFFLE BOOTH now that it has been RESTOCKED with NEW REWARDS?
As you can imagine
a WHOPPING 77% say they will start playing the newly re-vamped Raffle Booth
While 23% say they will not
With such an overwhelming response such as this
we hope that the FV Studio takes advantage of the interest and continues to update this feature

Market Stall Expansion


Early this past Monday we saw a much needed MARKET STALL Expansion
The Dirt Farmer noticed this new upgrade shortly after 2am Monday morning
We were granted 2 new expansions of 25 bushels each
for a total of 50 bushels
The current capacity when fully expanded is now 2400 bushels
and the VIP capacity is currently 3200 bushels
As always
remember that you can use those Special Delivery Boxes to expand those Market Stalls LICKITY SPLIT

Daily Delights (aka will Barbara every get her teeth fixed?)


Are you playing the DAILY DELIGHTS every week?
If so we hope you won your Tomato Bear by collecting CANDY SUSHI this week.
If you're looking ahead, this next week will have us collecting
the CANDY SUSHI in order to win an Eagle Fountain deco
and along the way you can pick-up some valuable consumables
such as FUEL, UnWithers and Insta-Grows

Say goodbye to the Gypsy Trader



Just a Reminder Farmers!
The GYPSY TRADER Summer Themed 2016 will END on August 31st.
Make sure to craft, collect and use ALL your Rose Diamonds to claim the Rewards BEFORE the feature EXPIRES.
If you cannot see the feature's icon at the right side of your farm,
search for the Gypsy Trader Wagon on the bottom right side of your farm next to Bob & Barbara.


New Limited Edition Crafting Feature
Wondering what our NEXT CRAFTING FEATURE will be following the conclusion of the GYPSY TRADER?
It appears that a feature themed around that of HOLLYWOOD AND MOVIE STARS is COMING SOON :



Farmville will soon be releasing a very challenging new limited edition feature that combines the time-delay growing aspects of  features like Mystrees and Spooky Wolves with the tiered difficulty levels of the Ghoul Ball. Director Steven needs your help! He has to prepare movie stars in the FarmVille Studio green room into awesome movie animals. If you succeed you will get to keep the glamorous movie star animals on your farm.  Your Dirt Farmer team has a complete guide for you to how the feature will work. Check out the details below and please do share with friends if you find our post helpful.
PLEASE CHECK BACK TO THIS POST LATER, ADDITIONAL IMAGES WILL BE ADDED WHEN THEY BECOME VISIBLE. AS THIS FEATURE IS VERY COMPLICATED, WE HAVE OPTED TO POST WITH PLACEHOLDER IMAGES TO GIVE YOU A DAY TO PREPARE.
 
NOTE: THE ADDITIONAL SLOTS FOR FARM CASH ARE COMPLETELY OPTIONAL AND AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE FOR THOSE WHO WISH TO COMPLETE THE FEATURE FASTER AND ARE WILLING TO PAY TO DO SO. THEY DO NOT UNLOCK ANY ADDITIONAL ANIMALS.


The FarmVille Movie Mania will be live on our farms from 29th August, 2016 to 29th September, 2016.



Now for a look at the FV Star Trailer’s levels and tend delays. This covers the Mystree aspect of the feature. IMPORTANT: Remember that once you have completely tended your FV Star Trailer (or any item from a feature of this type like Nutcracker or Dragon Eggs) and you place it on your farm, do not click on it or anything else until the transformation is complete, or it may freeze and not transform.
As many players found the Maharaja’s Stable too difficult, please note that the FarmVille Studio has greatly reduced the wait times for Movie Mania. You can completely raise a FV Star Trailer into an animal in 21 hours, less than half the 48 hours it took to raise a Royal Cradle in the Maharaja’s Stable.


Level Powder Puff to Tend to Next Level Waiting Period
1 1 1 hour
2 2 2 hours
3 3 4 hours
4 5 6 hours
5 7 8 hours
6 Complete None
So you will need a total of 18 Powder Puff to tend each FV Star Trailer into an animal.

The similarities to the Ghoul Ball lie in the fact that you will be able to choose your difficulty level. There will be 3 different crates that you can play for. The x-large stage, medium stage and big stage. You will be allowed to switch crates midstream ONE time. After that you will need to complete the entire crate to switch to another size. WARNING: If you do opt to switch crates/stages without completing the one you are on that one time, make sure you do not have any FV Star Trailers in progress. You will lose any progress to date on any incomplete cradles if you switch.

This past Tuesday marked a very under-rated 25th anniversary
On AUG 23rd 1991 the INTERNET was opened to everyone
The world wide web is something we all take for granted
and for anyone under 25 they have never lived in a world without the INTERNET
Just say DEWEY DECIMAL SYSTEM to a 21 year old and you'll get a puzzled look
We thank Sir Tim Berners-Lee and other internet pioneers for making the world more opened and connected
we are still unsure what Al Gore had to do with it

Thanks, Farmville!

Quests, Ode to Olympus and All Farm Two Week Quest
Ode to Olympus Chapter 4 starts sometime tomorrow with the usual 6 stages and one week duration
Everyone should have all their crafting cottage expanded to 5 stars status and be able to make 6 recipes at once
so get a jump on that crafting by making 3 of The Golden Fleece and 2 Rods of Asclepius in the Oracle's Keep
this will breeze you through the first 2 stages
and if you're really ambitious then go ahead and make 1 of the 2 Adamantine needed for stage 3
Speaking of crafting
be sure to plant ahead because you will need bushels from
BLOOD RED CHIKOO, GREEK BEETS AND TRANSPARENT LILY CROPS and they all TAKE 16 HOURS TO GROW
Rewards include
the Royal Mosiac Tree,
Mythical Lyre which is a harp with wings and what's a farm without a harp with wings,
the Discus Gorilla looks like he's ready for the Olympics,
the Underworld Hippo is sportin' some seriously evil looking blue glowing devil horns,
the Hades Flame Wolf has a fiery tail
and finally the Portal Keeper Unicorn is big and bad and PURPLE

One thing that we can say about the current FarmVille Studio is that they are very accurate with their holidays
In days gone by in farmville we would get fireworks in October
Leprechauns in the middle of summer and our candy baskets about two weeks after Halloween was over
But we are fast approaching LABOR DAY here in the states
and that means we need to remind Stassi what day it falls on this year
The 5th Stassi...not the FIRST...which is a Thursday and coincidentally that's when this Labour Day Quest starts
You will be crafting in your Bakeries, Wineries and Spas as usual so be sure to collect those bushels
Especially for the LILY Crop which takes 23 hours to grow
Besides the usual consumables we can expect to earn a few unique rewards
such as the Labour Cycle that we can put with all those other bikes we've collected throughout the years
this one is red, white and blue
very American...even though Labor Day isn't a uniquely American holiday
and especially if you spell it L-A-B-O-U-R like it is spelled in this quest
the Happy Labour Couple of gnomes don't really look happy
but they do look like farmers
so they should be a great deco
the Pretty Maid Swan has absolutely nothing to do with LABOR DAY
so we're deducting points for that one
and finally the Firefighter Horse is a pretty cool horse
I'm just betting it's leftover from the cop vs fireman VOTE feature

Farmer’s Showcase Spotlight Picture of the Week


This beautiful picture was made by our own DF Mary Beth


The Dirt Farmer Foundation is our way of focusing the social media power of the Dirt Farmer’s community to help worthwhile charities
Our Dirt Farmer Foundation Story of the week focuses on Italy.


Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of the 6.2 magnitude earthquake that struck central Italy this past week.
Our hearts are with their families, loved ones, friends and with all the people of Italy during this difficult time.

We all know that playing Farmville isn't getting any easier these days. Whether Farmville is throttling  access to your friends or the  Facebook newsfeed is hiding them from you it's hard to find help links on the newsfeed.  Add that to the fact that a lot of fellow players have quit and it becomes very challenging to  find help.  That's why you should join one or all of the Dirt Farmers SHARE Groups. Mam-Maw's Trading Post, Quest Help and More, The VOTE HELP Group and GOT SHEEP are link sharing groups where you can find neat items and even get help with common FV activities.  Be sure to ASK to JOIN today and please tell your FV friends about these helpful resources
