******* QUESTS *******

Once Upon A Winter Farm Chapter 5 In the Spirit of Things Quest

Starting tomorrow. We can expect to see the release of Chapter 5 Quest of the Once Upon a Winter Farm. Your chapter quests have 6 stages and you will have a full week to fully complete the quest. If you want to get a jump start on that crafting then you would need to make 3 Handmade Carousels and 3 of the Toy Jacks and Ball recipes in the Snowy Toy Shop. Plant ahead for those bushels. The Holiday Bell Flower will take 18 hours to grow and you will need those Bushels. That's 118 Bushels in all, and 24 of those are water crops, and what can you expect for all your hard work? Well, You get a Rainbow Ice Tree that makes me want a snow cone. We have a Holiday Santa Gnome because someone at Zynga was too A-SCARED to call it a Christmas Santa Gnome. We have a Blue Ice Lion and a deco called Elven Helpers. It's a little gnome riding a polar bear pulling a wagon with another little gnome driving and a BIG gnome riding in the back of the wagon, really, we can't make this crap up. If 2 gnomes in one quest wasn't enough, we also have a Holiday Fairy, and finally we have a Wintertide Horse which can only be placed on the SNOW TERRAIN.

A Very Merry Christmas Quest

Starting at some time on Thursday DEC 15th, and running for 2 weeks until DEC 29th, we have "A Very Merry Christmas Quest". This will be our ALL FARMS quest this week and as you can guess. It's a Christmas theme. YAY!!! We have a new crop called Claus Strawberries, and we will see them as a requirement in stages 3 and 5. As you can guess these little strawberries look like little Santas, and It is a 12 hour crop so plant ahead. With 6 Spa crafts, 7 Bakery Crafts, and 7 Winery Crafts needed for this quest you had better start collecting bushels. Especially those BEGONIA AND COVE CRANBERRY BUSHELS that take 23 hours to grow. And be sure to check out our quest guide for our HOT CROP Cheat Sheet. The rewards for this quest include a Rudolf Dog, a Santa Lover Cow, a very cool Winter Breeze Horse and a Striped Candy Unicorn, along with the usual consumables

Day Vs Night Voting Event


Are you a DAY person or a NIGHT Owl? Well, Farmville wants to know in our next VOTE Feature that starts next Wednesday. If you are one of those people who like to keep the Vote Building as a deco, this one should be easy. They look exactly the same. Except one is Orange and one is Purple. So, let us see what the rewards looks like. We start out with a choice between a Sun Flare Tree or a Crescent Glow Tree. Then we have a set of decos, A Sunrise Pond or a Moonlit Waterfall. The next set is gonna be slow. We have a Sunny Tortoise or a Torch Head Tortoise, funny, the Sunny Tortoise has snowflakes painted on it, not sunny at all. Of course we need OWLS in this vote. We have a Sun Shine Owl or a Full Moon Owl and both are on a stick. There is a Morning Exercise Squirrel or a Sleep Ready Squirrel who looks like she has a FV plushie toy. There is a Morning Hero Duck and a Night Hero Duck that looks like BATMAN. We have an Office Day Pig or a Dreamy Pig that's actually a piglet. There is a Sun Tan Seal or a Sleepy Head Seal. You have a choice of a Kite Runner Bear or a Lantern Bearer Bear. The Yoga Gorilla and the Nightclub Gorilla look like they both have curlers in their hair. We have a Sun Flower Wolf or a Moon Bloom Wolf, and finally we get either a Sun Princess Pegasus or a Moon Princess Pegasus.

***** LEADERBOARDS *****


Now, Let's talk about a great way to easily get those much needed InstaGrows, UnWithers and Super Fertilizers. Yes, I'm talking about the LEADERBOARDS, and once again this Wednesday we get a brand new set of Leaderboard Challenges. Our LIMITED EDITION CROP CHALLENGE this week will require us to harvest 6000 of the Romanesco Broccoli Crop. Romanesco Broccoli is a real thing, also know as Roman Cauliflower or simply as Romanesco. It was First documented in Italy, it is chartreuse in color, and it has that same color on our Farms. It can be planted on any farm It takes 8 hours to fully grow and will be in the market at the normal update time roughly 13 hours before the leaderboard begins. Our LOCKED CROP CHALLENGE will see us harvesting 300 Winter Beets. Winter Beets are a 9 and 1/2 hour Once Upon a Winter Crop. For our CRAFTY CHALLENGE we will be required to make 12 Makeshift Skip Ropes. The Makeshift Skip Rope is a 2 hour Level 1 Snowy Toy Shop Recipe for which you will need 2 Bush Flower, 2 Frosted Flower and 2 Icy Tulips bushels per recipe

***** FARMVILLE NEWS *****


Just a few minutes after midnight this past Monday morning. As we were all waiting for the ICY TARN to release. We got a GIFTING EVENT thrown at us. This is our second GIFTING EVENT for the Once Upon a Winter Farm. It appears we will be gifting the Winter Wise Horse to our Farmville friends to celebrate Once Upon A Winter Farm for 5 Farm Cash, and in return we will be awarded with a Jingle Bell Deer. We do expect a 3rd Gifting Event soon. Our next gifting event will enable us to send our friends a Holiday Elf Unicorn for 5 FV$ and in return we will receive a Twinkly Nose Horse. We may see this 3rd gifting event as soon as this week

The Once Upon a Winter BEAT Feature is now LIVE, even though I am sure many players have already met all the requirements. We still have to wait for the event to be activated before we can reap the rewards from BEATING the new farm. In order to BEAT the SNOT outta the new farm you will need to Master all 36 Crops to 3-star status. Then you will need to Make all 15 animals in the Frosty Grange, yes, that is the much dreaded self contained crafting, and the reason why some players simply BUY the shipping license. We also need to Improve the Snowy Toy Shop to level 5. Which is fairly easy. Finally you will need to Expand Noel’s Castle through level 10, also very easy. Once you have completed all 4 of these tasks you will get your BEAT TROPHY and your Shipping License for the Once Upon a Winter Farm

In just a few hours our current COMMUNITY GOAL will expire and we will see the start of a brand new chance to collectively challenge Farmville. We will jointly need to OWN 200,000 Land Expansions. Your individual requirement will be to own 2 Land Expansions. Our rewards for this week include UnWithers, Super Fertilizers, Fuel, Turbo Chargers and for our grand prize. The Farmville Studio will turn off WITHER on the new farm for 2 days. As for our current week. It seems we are well over the 90% mark. So it seems that we will have free fuel on Once Upon a Winter for 2 days this week

Early Monday morning we learned that the Farmville Studio gave us some PAYBACK. An in game pop up alerted players that they were being given 3 Turbo Chargers to make amends for a small glitch that prevented this same reward from being awarded from the Community Goals Feature




Hopefully you stayed up on your Daily Delights this week and you are well on your way to earning that Chocolates Chicken from the 2014 Cupid vs Anti Cupid Vote Event. Keep up with that Candy Sushi because Pierre The Giraffe is up next. You may remember him from the DISCOVER CARD Quest way back in late 2012. Collect Candy Sushi starting Monday to earn this reward, and the following week we get a chance to earn a Red Nose Sheep. You may remember this as a POLAR TRAIN STATION Reward from the Winter Wonderland Farm. The week starting DEC 26 we get a shot at last year's SantaCon Party Horse, which was a Market Item in December of 2015

In just a few hours we will get a much needed Water Expansion on the new Once Upon a Winter Farm. Frosty the Snowman will grant his consent to unlock The FROZEN LAKE expansion. You will need to have Upgraded Noel's Castle to Level 1, Unwrap 5 Mystery Presents in The Wishmaker's Post Office, and Reach Once Upon A Winter Level 24 in order to get this earned land expansion

It has been a while since we had a Lonely Animal visit our Farms. But, this past Thursday we saw a cowardly critter wander onto the out skirts of our farm...If you were quick and you were able to get 5 of your friends to help you. Then you were able to corral an Ice Town Pegacorn for yourself

After a recent game enhance this past Friday. We once again have a GHOST NEIGHBOR tab in our Add/Remove Neighbors section. It appears at this point that this feature may still be a wee bit flawed. We advise that you use extreme caution when clicking this option. It seems to be geared towards clearing out your active friends and replacing them with community neighbors. We advise that you manually remove inactive neighbors and replace them with more active friends that you can find in GROUPS

We have some good news for players. ICY TARN will soon have it's own coin vehicles. We'll let you know when they are released

We are also able to report that the Mystery Babies will soon be updated. We are expecting FarmVille Mystery Babies to be updated with all new contents, immediately after the first of the year, 2017. This round will last until December 31, 2017 so you will have plenty of time to collect all you wish. Now, what do we mean by Mystery Babies? As many of you may already know...When you harvest your own pens, you will always get a clone or copy of an animal inside that pen. The only way to obtain these random mystery babies is to collect babies from your friends on the feed, so please consider posting the babies as you harvest your pens. There will likely be a very high demand for them, I’m sure that everyone is going to be excited to collect all that they can. Remember that the feed tab at the top of the game is an excellent way to collect these babies as well. We currently have 199 new mystery animals that seem to be spread across various seasons of 2017. We suggest that you all check out our post for more details

You may or may not have snow where you are from. But it seems that Farmville ready didn't care. Whether you were in Alaska or Brazil your farm had a full blown WHITE OUT this past Thursday. Many players were reporting to the Dirt Farmer that they were unable to load their farms and that all they were getting was a WHITE loading screen. We called it last week. I believe Locke said that we would get a blizzard on the farm, and we'll, we did

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.

 



In the meantime, we hope you will visit our website as often as possible.  Your support and your clicks on that website is what enables us to provide our services to all the players. Share those posts from our Facebook page so we can reach even more players, so we can help them manage their game and stay in the game. Without YOUR support there is no Dirt Farmer.  Thanks to each and every one of you!
