 ***Daily Delights***
Our Daily Delights keep going and going.  Collect that Candy Sushi for great consumables and if you don't miss a day you get a bonus reward critter.  This week we have been collecting the Daily Delights for the SantaCon Party Horse.  This was actually a market item from last year and it can be yours for free by collecting that Candy Sushi every day of this coming week.  Our final reward for this round of the Daily Delights will be a Glitter Penguin.  Now where have we seen this critter before?  I know, it was the Winter Wonderland Chapter 6 Quest.  It was the reward in Stage 3 of that quest.  Then you had to ask your friends for 8 glitter jars, then harvest your popsicle tree once.  The popsicle tree was the reward in the previous stage, remember when they did stuff like that?  Finally you had to harvest 200 Snow Tulips, but, this week  all you have to do is click on your Candy Sushi for 7 days in a row:  easy peasy!
And just as Round 11 of the Daily Delight's expires in just a couple of week's,  We can expect Round 12 to start on Monday JAN 2nd of 2017 which is just a few hours from now.  Our first item is called the Woofson.  A dog that is  from the JAN 2015 Super Sleuth Market theme.  Next we get a Butterfly Kitsune which is a fox like critter from an APRIL 2016 Kabuki theme that probably went with the Sakura Farm.  The Heart Patched Cow is from the Parisian Valentine theme.  The Love Struck Cat is from the Crazy Cupid Love theme in 2015.  The Kaleidoscope Peacock is also from 2015, from the Kaleidoscope Market Theme.  Also from 2015 is the Love Potion Chicken from the Bewitched theme.  The Sunset Owl is from the Dark Romance Market theme.  The PingXi Bunny is from the PingXi Lantern Festival theme in 2015.  The Spring Braid Duck certainly gets around,  it's in the new Bob's Berry Update and it was in the March 2016 Cherry Blossom Festival theme. The Posy Baby Elephant is also from 2015, from the Spring Stars theme.  The Young Rodeo Sheep from the 2015 Rodeo Market Theme,  The Viking Warrior Monkey from the Vikings Market theme.  Finally we have a Rocker Pony from the 2015 Rockers Market Theme.  This round of Daily Delights all seem to be from early 2015 and they all appear to be past Limited edition Market Items that originally cost FV Cashclick here
***New Farm Info***
We learned the name of the next new farm last week.  We had told you all a few weeks ago that the theme for the new farm would be a HIPPY HIPPY BANG BANG farm.  This week we learned the name of the new farm.  Our next farm will be bright and colorful and we will call it HIPPIE HILLS.  No, just kidding, It's going to be GROOVY HILLS and we expect Early Access on or about JAN 9th of 2017, and I do believe the Farmville Song Master himself...Barry West...has a new song just for the new Hippie Farmclick here
***Bob’s Berry Farm***
Bob's Berry Farm update jan 2017
The ever popular Bob’s Berry Farm will soon be updated with a new Spring Theme! Currently coded to release on January 1st.  That was early this morning right as the clock struck 12 here on the east coast.  It  will be available until February 15th. This time the FarmVille Studio appears to be treating us to a mixture of old and new items, including several decorations.  There are 17 new rewards in all. We have a Bonnet Spring Goat, an Elf of Spring gnome, a creepy Monkey Jacuzzi, and a Playful Spring Kitten.  There's a Spring Awakening Bear and a Spring Blast Balloon and a Spring Blast Chicken.  There’s also a Summer Braid Duck and a Spring Clean Cow.  We have a Spring Fairy Pegasus for the horse breeders and a Spring Flora Tree for the tree farmers and we also have a Spring Flower Deer.  There’s a Spring Gnome Cottage, a Spring Mother Hen, a Spring Shower Tree, a Spring Whispers Tree and finally a Yellow Spring Horse.  There may have been some confusion for players trying to play the Berry Farm the other night.  The last set of Bob's rewards expired at 12 am on the 31st and this new set didn't go live until 24 hours later.  So we did have a 24 hour gap with NO Berry Farm rewardsclick here

***Limited Edition Crafting Items***
You may want to check your CRAFT SHOP, because we have some new limited edition items that started yesterday.  We now have the chance to craft the Bradford Pear Tree.  Which is a level 2 tree that is grown from the Autumn Cherry Tree.  Not to be confused with the Bradford Pear Tree 2 from 2013 which is grown from the Sparkling Twilight Willow Tree.  We have a Smitten Cow which we first saw in the 2012 Cupid's Garden feature.  This was a buildable that we used LOVE ARROWS, CUPID BOWS and PAIRS OF WINGS and it redeemed for items like the SMITTEN STALLION, SMITTEN SHEEP and this item.  THE SMITTEN COW.  We have a Good Neighbors Fence was last in the game in 2013.  We also have a Pink Penguin from 2015
Finally we have the Loving Pegacorn  It was originally released on February 6th, 2013 as a reward for upgrading Tree of Love to final stage.

***Cool Decorating Information Ahead***
STENCILS went LIVE on your Farms.  As we all know, Hay Bale art has been popular on Farmville almost since Farmville was launched.  Players have used different colored hay bales, trees and just about anything to make elaborate artistic designs.   Now, Seven years later, The FV Studio has made it easy peasy for everyone.  The first 3 stencils to be released will be the heart for 500 coins, the Christmas tree for 10,000 coins and the duck for 25 farm cash.
What?  You thought they'd be free?
Along with the feature, it appears that 6 new colors of hay bales will be released!! Better yet, these appear to be permanent as no end date was coded and they are priced at 125 coins.
The new colors are Purple, Light Orange, Lavender, Dark Green, Dark Brown, Coral Pink and Light Blue., Like Carolina Blue for any of you TAR HEEL FANS.  Yuck!

***World Sale Information***
We saw the FV STUDIO do a little make up from last week.  We had a sale or two this week.  Starting Monday, We saw a 70% World Sale on Mistletoe Lane.  Kind of like buying Christmas Lights and Wrapping Paper at a CLEARANCE SALE the week AFTER Christmas.  And if one Christmas Farm is good, then two is even better.  Just yesterday we got a 70% off World Sale on the Alpine Jingle. It's Boxing Week Farmville style!

 Wednesday is New LEADERBOARD Day on the farm.  A great way to earn InstaGrows, UnWithers and Super Fartilizers.  This week's LIMITED EDITION CROP CHALLENGE will see us harvesting 6000 Tribal Snake Fruits.  Tribal Snake Fruit is a 23 hour crop and will be in the market at the normal update time roughly 13 hours before the leaderboard begins.  For our LOCKED CROP CHALLENGE we will need to harvest 300 Bush Flowers.  Bush Flower is a 16 hour Once Upon A Winter crop.  Our CRAFTY CHALLENGE this coming week will require us to make 12 Windup Chicken Toys.  Windup Chicken Toy is a 2 hour Level 2 Snowy Toy Shop Recipe for which you will need 3 Green Crystal Pear (6 hours), 3 Patterned Corn (17 hours 54 minutes) and 3 Winter Beets (9 hours 30 minutes) bushels per recipeclick here

***Mystery Baby News***
The MYSTERY BABIES have been updated.  We can expect to see 199 new Mystery Babies released during the course of 2017.  And this all started very recently.  Many players are all ready hot on the trail of these new mystery babies.  What will we need to get all these new critters? Well,  you will need the Mystery Baby.  Not one that you make from your farm but one collected from another player.  And the Dirt Farmer plans on helping you all with this task.  Our BATTLEGROUND CHALLENGE this week will be sharing your MYSTERY BABIES.  So be sure to check out our Battleground Group and Join if you are not already a member.  This week, starting at 12am midnight tonight ET you can share your mystery babies and collect from other players who are sharing as well.  And one fortunate member of the Battleground Group who does share  will win a PAPA DIRT Prize.  That is any UnWither Ring or Double Statue in the Market.  The second thing that you will need is ANIMAL FEED.  For those of us who haven't played with the Mystery Baby Feature recently, don’t forget that you will need ANIMAL FEED to grow the Mystery Babies.  Where can you find Animal Feed?  You can start sending ANIMAL FEED back and forth to your friends from the FREE GIFTS Page.  You can craft it.  You can harvest for it in your Winter Feed Mill and your Jade Feed Mill.  As well as your Animal Pens and Baby Nursery and Dog Houses...and you will probably see a lot of it on the newsfeed. But, honestly, The easiest way to feed those mystery babies is with your SPECIAL DELIVERY BOXES...yes...all you need to do is use some of those SDB's...Most of us have tens of thousands in storage...so this should be easyclick here

***Podcast Link Below***
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?
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!

That's all we have right now, remember to always visit Ask the Dirt Farmer for up to date information and help, and enjoy the rest of your week!
