Starts March 20th - David the Zoologist is exploring the Fountain of Springs! He has found three campsites populated with exotic animals! The problem is that they are hidden... if you help him find them , you will be able to keep the Sakura Springs Pegacorn on your farm as a bonus prize! FarmVille will soon come out with another tiered level crafting basket in the style of the Ghoul Ball and Mashashi's Ultimatum. We will be collecting and crafting Secret Treats to redeem for prizes. The best part of this feature is that you will redeem prizes of your choice, using Secret Treats as currency, no random chances. Your Dirt Farmer team has the details below for you, read on to get the scoop and please share.....
Fountain Of Springs is currently scheduled to go live on March 20th, 2017 and end on April 19th, 2017
A look at the loading screen that we will see when the feature goes live on our farms.
The pop-up that we will receive inviting us to play Fountain Of Springs
A preview of the feature walkthrough with David himself.
We will be able to choose from 3 campsites of different sizes and difficulty levels to play for.
David will make a recommendation for each one of us for best odds to finish based on prior completion rates.
If you are not happy with the crate you chose, you can switch only once and keep your progress.
We will be able to post or craft for Secret Treats to lure the exotic animals out of hiding.
A look at the recipes for crafting the Secret Treats.
Each recipe includes one new crop. The new crops will be in the market at the regular update time, prior to the feature’s release. All three are currently available in the Bushel Swap feature if you wish to get a jump.
Remember that new crops give lower bushel yields until they are mastered, so plan your planting quantities accordingly.
The Backpack Bag recipe yields one Secret Treat and includes the new Bubble Dandelion crop.
1 Apollo Aster Bushel
2 Bubble Dandelion Bushel

By redeeming all of the animals in our chosen crate, we can win a bonus prize - and keep the Sakura Springs Pegacorn on our farms.
If you complete your crate with time remaining on the feature, you can replay it or play another crate.
If you do happen to choose a crate that you have already played, David will check with you to see if you really wish to do that, so you don't have to worry about having to complete the same crate again due to one misclick.
As mentioned above, we will be collecting and crafting Secret Treats to lure the animals out of hiding. We will also be able to purchase these for Farm Cash.. Note that the quantity and pricing text is a placeholder. The actual cost will be available in game.

Special thanks to Farmer Alistair for the following calculations. The accuracy of these is dependent on the feature checking off duplicates as completed, as happened in Ghoul Ball.
You will need 1,770 Secret Treats if you want to complete all 3 stages and get all 25 animals.
That is the equivalent of making 354 of the Trekking Tents that grant 5 Secret Treats (352 counting initial grant of 10 treats)
This will require 1,056 Quartz Carrot Bushels, 1,056 Swiss Chard bushels and 704 Fairy Snowdrop bushels.
