***Puppy Come Home Feature***

We have a new SPOTLIGHT Feature heading our way to the Game just in time for the Holidays.  The FarmVille Puppy Come Home Feature.  Farmville is getting ready to offer us a new version of an old and popular feature called Puppy Come Home. The Puppy Come Home Feature will offer ALL NEW REWARDS, and the theme appears to be based on winter weather and the outdoors. It also involves a map, with four distinct regions. We will be finding animals along our travels and each of four sections will come with a piece of the map to get us closer to solving the puzzle. If we help Peggy the puppy find her way home, we will get Peggy’s friend the Penny Unicorn. It is basically the same feature as the Wandering Pirate but this time once you complete all sets of animals, you get a bonus reward.  This new feature will start tomorrow on NOV 7th and will run until DEC 4th.  This feature will have ALL NEW REWARDS. There will be 16 BRAND NEW animals to win across the four areas of the map. If we complete all four and win all 16 animals, we will also win THE PENNY UNICORN as a 17th bonus prize.  Just like the Pirate Ruby in the Wandering Pirate, you will be able to find Peggy’s icon for the feature at the outside edge of your farms. You will need to lure the animals with Striped Candy. You will be able to obtain Striped Candy by posting to the feed, collecting from friends posts, crafting them or purchasing with farm cash. Several options for every taste. There will be a countdown timer within the feature to let you know how long you have left to complete it.
...The 4 regions of the feature map are called The Abandoned Farm...Snow Mountain...Frozen Lake and the Winter Woods
...It looks as if there will be 3 different Striped Candy recipes, one for 1 Basket, 1 for 3 Baskets and one for 5 Baskets
...The single striped candy takes 1 hour to craft and requires 6 bushels
...The 3 pack takes 3 hours and 8 bushels
...Finally the 5 pack will take 6 hours and 9 bushels
...The common Rewards include a Plaid Skirt Pony, Mountain Boarding Goat, Chatter Tooth Croc and Candy Baby Elephant
...The SPECIAL rewards include a Plaid Winter Duck, Winter Hill Yak, Sweater Boar and a Red Knit Kangaroo
...The RARE set will have a Knit Wear Cow, Mountain Hike Bear, Holly Shell Tortoise and a Red Nose Tiger
...Finally we have the SUPER RARE set that has a Holly Horn Deer, Tangerine Ski Horse, Holly Fur Horse and a Red Holly Pegasus


We know that the Carnival de los Muertos Farm is quickly coming to an end, and that means we will have a new farm on the way.  The name of the new farm will be ONCE UPON A WINTER.  They are getting quite poetic with these new names aren't they?  I'm not sure if we have the dates confirmed but we have already guessed early access to this farm will probably be NOV 14th, 2016.   It looks like another winter farm, and I'm sure we will have SNOWMEN, REINDEER and maybe even a Christmas Tree. Maybe. We will have a complete guide for you all when it becomes available.
Here’s a sneak peek at the new farm.

***Earned Land Expansion***

We have another EARNED Land Expansion coming our way in a few short hours...THE GREAT PUMPKIN will grant his...or her...consent to unlock the Deadly Pool section of the Carnival de los Muertos...and it is a water expansion...You will need to Upgrade Carousel of Souls to Level 45, Unwrap 20 Mystery Presents in Ferris Wheel Silo, and Reach Carnaval De Los Muertos Level 51 in order to unlock this expansion.


We really really hope you were able to collect all of your CANDY SUSHI this week in order to win yourself a Draculaura Pony.  This coming week is dedicated to TUCKER, and it's your chance to earn a PEACH PIG.  Don’t forget, redeeming those Candy Sushi along the way can earn you FUEL, Un-Withers and Insta-Grows.

***Random Tidbits***

*Halloween Treat*

We got a TREAT from the Farmville studio this past Monday, as we all know that was HALLOWEEN.  I understand they couldn't give us all a little snickers bar, or a butterfinger, so this was an okay treat.  They unlocked ALL the colorful pumpkins that had been previously locked to Haunted Hollow. So now you can use them on any farm,  and decorate with them on any HALLOWEEN FARM.

*VIP Membership Upgrade*

We really don't know exactly how many of you use the VIP Program for Farmville Cash and Perks.  But if you don't then we have some new upgrades that may change your mind.  There are five levels that you must move up in the VIP program, and if you stop, then you start over from scratch.   That $10 a month will get you a pretty good deal on FV Cash but to keep your perks you need to stay signed up.  By the time you reach the DIAMOND LEVEL you will receive 120 FV$, 12 Super Fertilizers, 5% discount on all land expansions, a free mystery horse, 900 extra slots in your Market Stall, 40% off weekly sale items...every month...You also get an auto upgrade to a 5x5 combine, You can collect Bushels from Neighbors every 8 hours and you have VIP Customer Service. (note: the 5x5 combine has been rolled back, we do not know if it will be re-introduced in the future)

***A Very Special Request***

Please Support Family whose home was destroyed.  This is The Dirt Farmer's very own Heather Quattrone and her family.  She is the person who nearly single handedly writes the majority of the posts on The Dirt Farmer's website.  She also helps to train everyone else so we can keep posting your Farmville Info.  If you cannot donate to this worthy cause.  Please take a minute and SHARE the post to your Facebook timeline, and remember her family in your prayers.  Thank you all for any help.

Let us talk about something very very serious, something that affects us all, yes my friends, let us talk about our need for Insta-Grows, Un-Withers and Super Fertilizers.  Where can we find these? THE LEADERBOARDS!  We will have a new re-set of this popular feature on Wednesday.  Our LIMITED EDITION CROP Challenge will see us harvesting 6000 Tomato Tulips.  I went to school with a kid we called Tomato Tulips, he had an accident with a vacuum cleaner.  The Tomato Tulips crop can be planted on any farm.  It takes 8 hours to grow and will be in the market at the normal update time roughly 13 hours before the leaderboard begins.  Our LOCKED FARM CROP Challenge will see us harvesting 300 Dried Ghost Peppers.  Dried Ghost Pepper is a 8 hour Carnival De Los Muertos Farm crop.  Our CRAFTY Challenge will require us to make 12 Calavera Candles.  Calavera Candles is a 2 hour Level 2 Brewing Wagon Recipe for which you will need 3 Grapeyard Tombs, 3 Spider Flower and 3 Cursed Cluster bushels per recipe.

***Bob’s Berry Update***

It looks like someone forgot to tell Zynga that Halloween was over, because the upcoming update to Bob's Berry Farm has a decidedly spooky flair. From November 15, 2016 to December 31, 2016, the ever popular Bob's Berry Farm will be refreshed with an assortment of 20 old and new prizes. Some are fall themed and others are spooky enough for El Carnaval.  REWARDS will include the Waxback Bear that looks like some kind of medieval hair removal system.  We have a Fall Tiger and a Persian Vampire Cat, there’s a Hel Chicken and we have a Moon Carrier Chicken...oh...2 chickens. There is also a Gargo Fountain, Curious Little Gnome and a Reaper Horse,  a Late Night Train , Toxic Deer, Scarecrow Monkey and a Coral Wing Pegasus. If two  horses isn't enough we also have a Fall Ready Pegasus and a Insomnium Pegasus.  We have a Spooky Balloon, Spooky Face Tree, Wraith Lampost, Secretly Grinning Tree, Stranded Carriage and a Twisted Treats Tree.


This Tuesday we can expect to see a brand new COUNTDOWN feature.  This new feature will be called the Farmville Scintillating Jewels Countdown.  16 days of earned rewards with a 17th bonus prize for collecting all of your stamps.  REWARDS: We have 4 trees for our TREE FARMERS:  A Jeweled Tree, Enchanted Gem Tree, Golden Sparkle Tree and a Floral Gem Tree.  There is a Gem Studded Turtle, a Sparkle Gnomette, and a Gem Studded Giraffe.  There is another absolutely worthless deco called the Necklace Pedastal.  There is a Gem Keeper Gnome and a Summer Jewel PeaCOCK as well as a Jewel Spotted Camel...and his HUMPS are covered so we can't see if it's a 1 HUMP or a 2 HUMP Camel.  I  smell a conspiracy.  There’s a Pink Gem Panther and a Jeweled Chicken.  We also have a Crystal Fountain, Scintillating Elephant and finally a Crystal Jewel Horse.  Our bonus prize is a Shiny Pegasus


Halloween is over and gone, except for the empty 50 gallon tub sitting in Wende's living room that was full of candy.  We know the kids didn't get any, but, back to our quest.  We are already coming up on Chapter 7 in just a few short hours.  We will have 1 week to complete the 6 stages of frightful fun.  You will need a 3-star brewing wagon in order to complete this quest.  Stock up on those bushels:  SOUR PUMPKIN, BLEEDING DRUPE AND TOXOIDS BUSHELS TAKE 16 HOURS TO GROW.  If you Craft 3 Cursed Fruit and 2 Enchanted Rings you will be ahead of the first two stages.  Rewards include a Dual Rose Tree...and yes...each rose on this tree has 2 colors!  We have a deco called the Pumpkin Shy which looks like a carnival game where you throw something at pumpkins.  La Catrina Statue is just weird.  We have a Muertos Perro Dog and a Dancing Puppet Donkey, and finally we have a Pumpkin Spirit Unicorn which is pretty cool

*****ALL FARM QUEST*****
***Loi Krathong Quest***

This Thursday we will see the release of the Loi Krathong Quest.  What is a Loi Krathong? It is a festival celebrated annually throughout southwestern Thai cultures, (Thailand, Laos, Shan, Tanintharyi, Kelantan, Kedah and Xishuangbanna).  Loi Krathong takes place on the evening of the full moon of the 12th month in the traditional Thai lunar calendar; hence, the exact date of the festival changes every year. In the Western calendar this usually falls in the month of November. In 2015 it was celebrated on November 25th; in 2016 it will be held on November 14th.The translation basically means FLOATING BASKET, so it's a festival of floating baskets.  There will be 7 Winery crafts, 7 Bakery crafts and 6 Spa crafts required in this quest, you might want to get ahead on needed bushels.  FROZEN GRAPE, IRIS AND RED TULIP CROPS TAKES 23 HOURS TO GROW.  We have a new crop for this quest.  The LANTERN FLOWER will be needed in stages 2 and 4 and it is a 16 hour crop.  Besides the usual suspects of consumable rewards we can expect to see a few nice prizes.  We have a Lotus Palm Tree, Festive Light PeaCOCK, a Lamp Pond and a Loi Horse
