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!

Community Goals


We are getting ready to enter week THREE and that means we can probably expect another round of COMMUNITY GOALS to keep us busy on the farm. The community goals are an easy way to earn FUEL, UnWithers, Olympus Gold, Turbochargers and this week we can play for NO WITHER on the new farm for 3 days...We will be tasked this coming week to CRAFT 4 million recipes in the Oracles Keep. Don't worry. You won't have to craft all 4 million alone. This will be a collective effort with everyone who plays the game contributing to the ultimate goal, and  you only need to craft 35 to be eligible for the rewards.



sweet spot



Sweet Spot Hey Farmers!!
Thanks to Dirt Farmer Wendy we have found a Sweet Spot for you on Ode To Olympus. It's right behind the fence on Waters Of Life Tile Expansion. And it's all along that upper fence line. I used the Biorhythm Tree. It's in the Market, the very first tree, and it's coins.

unlockable


Unlockable land expansions

We also have a map of the future free land expansions for Ode to Olympus, and this is one you should bookmark because it jumps around all over the place. Expansion #1, 5 and 8 are on land near the landing area. Numbers 4 and 9 are on water, Numbers 2, 6 and 7 are way down on the left in purgatory, and #3 is above the Ambrosia Fountain. You will need a map to keep up and we have one. You can also see the land expansion post in the Ode to Olympus Complete Guide

Have you noticed that in the Abode of Beasts self contained crafting building you can no longer see what’s being crafted in the stations at the top when you click on the animal you need to make?
Well your Dirt Farmer Team has learned the reason for this. Zynga has done this to help prevent players from making any accidental purchases by clicking on the finish now button when you X out of the station menu. If you follow these simple steps listed
here you can do all your crafting directly from the animal pop-up without losing any FC.

******* LEADERBOARDS *******



HUMP DAY always means NEW LEADERBOARD DAY in Farmville...Many players rely on the Leaderboards feature to obtain much needed Insta-Grow, UnWithers and Super Fertilizers. For the past few years we have had the same 3 categories but, they do re-set with different requirements every week. This week's LIMITED EDITION CROP Challenge will us harvesting 6000 Yangmei. The Yangmei is a speckled fruit, well it's actually an Asian BAYBERRY to be exact and it can be planted on any farm and takes 23 hours to grow. It should be in the market roughly 13 hours before the Leaderboard re-sets. Our LOCKED FARM CRP Challenge will see us harvesting 300 Spartan Cabbage in Ode to Olympus, Spartan Cabbage is a 6 hour Ode To Oympus Farm crop. Our final challenge this week will ask us to GET CRAFTY as we try to make 12 Cornucopia in the Oracle's Keep. Cornucopia is a 4 hours Oracle's Keep Recipe for which you will need 3 Greek Beets, 3 Eye of Hades and 3 Bloomed Dahlia bushels per recipe.

Howdy Farmers! Are you noticing a new pop-up when you open your farm to add neighbors? Well this is one that we think you will really like! Zynga has added a feature so that we can search for our facebook friends by name, and easily find them to add as neighbors. Simply start typing their name in the search box as shown below. Please share with your friends, and visit Ask the Dirt Farmer for any questions about Farmville. Thanks to Farmer Marion for noticing this!




stallions1




UPDATED: Horse breeding or stable stuffing is still a popular feature among the majority of Farmville players. To be able to make a foal you will need a stallion to be placed in your stables. Not all stallions are coded to help make a foal, that’s why we came up with a list of stallions that work/ not work in the stables, and we put in in a single easy peasy post. It has been recently updated so be sure to check it out so you don't waste all your ready mares on LIMP STALLIONS.

On MY MY! oh HECK YES!! It looks like a Farmville Sunday night tradition from years gone by may be getting a major re-vamp. We may be able to soon bring you details of the all new re-invigorated RAFFLE BOOTH. Little is known at this point but we will be sure to post as soon as we know more. It will start this Monday at midnight which is just over 3 hours from now. Stay tuned to The Dirt Farmer for more details!

The reward for the winner of this Challenge will be a Papa Dirt Prize: your choice of ANY Unwither Ring or Double Statue from the Market.

One of the biggest gripes we get about farmville is the fact that we accumulate massive amounts of FARM COINS as we play the game, and we have very little if anything we can actually spend these coins on. Well, there are a few items released with each new farm that sell for coins, some animals, a few decos and maybe a cool unique item every so often. If you can't find time to wade through your market to find these coin items you can check out the posts on our website HERE and search "LIST OF COIN ITEMS". We have a new updated post with coin items released in 2016. A few of these include a few farm fences, the Bamboo Fence, Colorful String Fence, Nippon Bamboo Fence, a Spotty Fence which is made of animal skins in a caveman style, a Stone Pole Fence water fence and a White Stone Fence that would look nice on any farm. We have more than a few haybales, a Stone Hay Bale, the Painting Hay Bale is really cool with cave wall etchings on them, the Zen Haybale is unique with a purple halo, and a Marigold Haybale. Some of the nicer animals include the Garden Stone Pegasus which has no wings, a Yellow Mammoth, a Furious Red Cat that is black and green, and there are many many more. Be sure to check out our post.




More than a few Farmers commented that the obscene number of POP UPS for the new farm seem to have been reduced with this Ode to Olympus Farm. With every new farm it seems that the game is ALWAYS reminding us to go to the new farm. Even if we just came from there. It's been a long standing complaint with players and it seems to have been reduced with this new farm. We are not really sure if it's intentional or if they just forgot to program this annoyance. We did however get word that EARLY ACCESS was still being offered for sale even after the General Access was released, so, as always Farmers be weary.




General Access did start this past Monday and The Dirt Farmer began seeing comments from Players in ASK the Dirt Farmer that the game was experiencing posting issues. We did post an alert by late afternoon asking for you to comment so we could alert the FV Studio. They were able to address the issues and hopefully you can once again post to the newsfeed and groups. After all it was a new farm release and one of these days we will have a new farm roll out and not have ANY issues at all, and that's when I will really start to worry




ask



We all have questions about farmville from time to time...and as we all know there are major issues that stop us in our tracks. But, whatever the issue is you can always find help in the Dirt Farmer's ASK the Dirt Farmer group. The Dirt Farmer admins are usually monitoring the conversations in the group but it's really set up for farmers to help each other, and unlike a lot of Facebook groups we delete SPAM and Malicious posts as quickly as they get posted by hackers, so, like all of our groups it stays very very SAFE.

Feel free to Click Here and ask to join





poll




On this week's POLL of the WEEK. We decided to ask YOU just how much you contribute to the Collective Feature and surprisingly a whopping 94% of you say that you ALWAYS do the COMMUNITY GOALS and only 6% say they never play them. It just makes me wonder how many of that 94% is telling the truth and wasn't just guilted into clicking YES




******** IN OTHER NEWS ********




tucker


If you are a regular listener to the show you may have noticed that we have all been spending some time on PERISCOPE. Periscope is a Twitter based app where people can broadcast themselves from their smartphones in live video, and the MOTHER TUCKER herself joined the ranks of the SCOPERS this week as she launched her very own TUCKER TV Scope. Tucker is Dirt Farmer Renee's pet piggy and now he's a star. You can watch for yourself HERE

DFFflood



Dirt Farmer Foundation Community Service Request: "Talk about a picture worth a thousand words from the #LouisianaFlood#. This is Celtic Center in Baton Rouge which houses thousands of people with flooded homes. Thousands bedding with their pets. If you wonder why I keep posting these pictures, we need an army of volunteers. In the governor's press conference today, they explained they need organizations that can send large groups. Like faith-based groups. They appreciate the locals coming in, but this is a Katrina-type disaster and we need masses of volunteers. Most did not have flood insurance because they were not in a flood zone. Please share, especially those out of state. Send your groups HERE. ... Credit: peteducationproject

podcast



Here’s the link to this week’s podcast, because don’t you really want to listen to all of it after reading the summary?
Click here for an hour of entertaining farmville news!



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.  We also have several helpful groups such as The Dirt Farmer, Farmville News Network and others! Be sure to ASK to JOIN today and please tell your FV friends about these helpful resources.
