***** QUESTS *****

In just a few hours we will start our Monotonous Town Quest. Which is Chapter 3 of the new GROOVY HILLS FARM. Get a jump on that crafting by making 3 Coconut Clusters and 3 Sweet Potato Chips in the Crafting Tent. Stock up on BLANKET FLOWER AND JACK APPLE BUSHELS becuse they will take 16 hours to grow. We can win a Hippie Palm Tree which looks just like a regular palm tree, maybe it doesn't have a job, there's a Hip Wagon which is actually a TRAILER. We have a new chicken called the Chic Peace. I wonder if that goes in the 3 piece value meal at Kentucky Fried Chicken??? We have an Afro Rocker Goat and a Flower Power Deer. Finally there's a Rainbow Shawl Horse

We were unable to tell you about the Busker Carnival Quest that went live this past Thursday. Because it was a wee bit late getting coded. This newest ALL FARMS Quest has the usual 9 stages and 2 week duration. We have an assortment of Bakery, Spa and Winery Crafting to keep us busy. Be sure to get those needed bushels by checking out our HOT CROP CHEAT SHEET on the quest guide. This is not only a great way to help you complete the quests, It's also a quick and easy way to see what crops your neighbors will need as well. Our LIMITED EDITION CROP in this quest is the 12 hour MOOD LOOPS Flower. Since this quest is already live then you can already find this crop in the market. Besides the usual consumables. We can expect to be able to earn a Violin Fruit Tree, a Busker Pig with a top hat, red and white striped boxer shorts and flaming torches in it's mouth, really. There is a Street Performer Dog, and finally a Busker Pegasus with balls on it's nose

The Australia Day Quest will bring us 9 stages of DOWN UNDER FUN, which could mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people.

Many of you do these all farm quests simply for the consumables. We can all use the InstaGrows, UnWithers, Super Fertilizers, Turbos and that book of XP. But we can also expect to earn a very cool Australia Day Tree, there is also a really awesome looking Aussie Dog. There's a Flag Maker Kangaroo, of course we needed a kangaroo in this quest, and finally we have an Aussie Pegasus

***** Musical Dash ******



Director Steven of Movie Mania fame is back with a new request for help! This time he is putting on a musical play! He needs to recruit a talented troupe of musician animals for the play to be a success! The feature, called the Musical Dash appears to be similar to the Merry Marshal and Gypsy Trader features from the past. We will be collecting, crafting and redeeming Pitch Pipes to redeem the musician animals and recruit them for the troupe. This seems to be a straight up collect and redeem event, with no time delays or duplicates built in. This new feature will release in just a few hours, most likely at the midnight enhance. The Musical Dash feature will be available on our farms from January 23rd, 2017 to February 22nd, 2017. We will be collecting, crafting and redeeming PITCH PIPES to win the musician animals. We will be able to craft the Pitch Pipes in increments of 1, 3 and 5. Please be aware that the Quaver Berry required for the one Pitch Pipe recipe, the G-Clef Corn required for the three Pitch Pipe recipe and the Flute Cane required for the 5 Pitch Pipe recipe are NEW CROPS. They will be available in the market at the regular update time on January 22nd/23rd depending on your time zone. Remember that as new crops, you will have lower bushel yields on these until you master them, with bushel yields increasing progressively with each mastery star earned. There are 18 redeemable rewards and a 19th bonus reward if you can collect them all.

The Community Goals are currently in it's second week for the GROOVY HILLS farm, and we are just hours away from our third weekly challenge. Starting in just a few hours we will collectively be trying to make 3.3 Million recipes in our Groovy Hills Crafting Tent. That may sound like a lot of pot brownies and acid trips, But, fear not brave farmers. The individual requirement is only 30 recipes. If you craft 30 recipes you win all the staged rewards. That includes Fuel, Super Fertilizers, Turbos, UnWithers and the final prize of NO WITHER on Groovy Hills for 2 days

We're getting ready to start week 3 of the GROOVY HILLS Farm and we will be getting our first earned land expansion. The Home Fields expansion will be available in just a few hours when the HIGH HIPPIE grants his permission. There is only one requirement, you must have achieved level 15 of the groovy hills farm. Not to be forgotten. We also have a Once Upon a Winter earned land expansion, the Wisconsin Snow Blower will grant his consent to release the Frosty Fields expansion and all you need to do is reach level 78 on the Once Upon a Winter Farm

We start out tonight by telling you about a LONELY ANIMAL ALERT. This wayward cowardly critter was first spotted before 4 am this past Monday. It may be too late to claim but you can always check. The Lonely Critter Program seems to be a wee bit WONKEY at times. If you did see the mangy beast right outside your farm, and you were able to get 5 of your friends to help you corral the wicked varmint. Then you were able to acquire a lovely Snow Pearl Deer. You know what they should do, they should have a lost wallet feature. Get five of your friends to help you find a lost wallet on the outskirts of your farm, and maybe we can find a little farm cash in those lost wallets, wouldn't that be nice.

A few months ago we had massive issues with our GIFT ENVELOPE...For the most part the FV STUDIO has fixed the major problem with communications between Zynga and Facebook. Although we do hear complaints from time to time. So we decided to ask you how your envelope and gifting system was working in this week's poll of the week
65% claim they never had any issues with the gift envelope ever
20% say they did experience past issues but everything has been working well for some time
15% say they continue to have issues
Currently there are no clear reasons why you should be having gifting issues. Everything seems to working well on the game's side. Zynga and Facebook don't appear to be having communication issues at the moment, But, that could change at any moment...Facebook loves to UPGRADE stuff that isn't broken and in doing so they BREAK IT. If you are having persistent issues you may want to check things from your side. Simple fixes like clearing your cache and checking your internet speed can make a difference. Also the use of harmful extensions like TIMELINE REMOVERS and ADBLOCKERS can also affect your game play. These added extensions may also affect your computers in other ways that you may not expect. We advise researching any such program before installing them, and if you suspect they may be slowing down your computer or affecting content. Simply REMOVE them. We are aware that there were more than a few players that have had issues since the problem was fixed for most of us. Dirt Farmer Michele has been collecting info from these players and relaying it to the FV Studio. These efforts have rendered very positive results. A recent enhance has been effective at restoring the Gift Envelope for many of these players

Tuesday saw a much needed MARKET STALL Expansion. If you are a member of the VIP program then you can expand your market stalls to a capacity of 3400 Bushels. If you are not a VIP member then you can now expand to 2500 Bushels. This is the first expansion in at least 4 months which brought about some complaints with players who have come to expect at least one set of expansions with each new farm. The problem with expanding the stall too much is that it adversly affects gameplay. The time it takes to populate the ever growing bushel list causes computers to appear to flash crash. It's not really a crash, it's just a notice from your computer telling you that it's tired of waiting for FV to respond. The game is in fact responding, but it just takes so long to count and access all those bushels. Locke has asked the FV Studio to make the Bushel Capacity UNLIMITED, although we suspect his intentions may be self motivated. Because if we get UNLIMITED bushels then no one would ever clear out their useless bushels, it would take days to load your market stalls and the game would crash and die. So Locke wouldn't have to do this show anymore.

Some players saw an odd pop up or email this week advertising a new loyalty program from Farmville...We can report this is not any type of phishing scam...It is real and is from Zynga...There seems to be a new type of loyalty program in the works that may provide upgraded support for you...This new program appears to be based on player loyalty and not directly connected to the amount of money you spend on the game...Little is currently know about the new feature but stay tuned to the dirt farmer for further details

If you follow our Facebook page then you may already be aware of the issue that many players experienced this past week. They could not locate the LEADERBOARD ICON on their game screen. Sometimes the game just has too many icons and you can eliminate some by clicking on them once. In this case case just open the STARTER PACKS ICON and then your LEADERBOARD ICON will reappear

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.

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!
