***** QUESTS *****

Oh no, It's already time to talk about Chapter 7 of the Groovy Hills Farm. That means we are almost done with this GROOVY FARM. The The Final Touch Quest will start in just a few hours. With 6 Stages and a one week duration. Get a much needed jump on that crafting by making 3 Coconut Clusters and 3 Cucumber Roll Ups in the Crafting Tent. The 18 hour LOTUS JELLO BUSHELS will be the most time consuming to obtain unless you have really good neighbors. Our rewards include the Discotheque Goat, there's a Night club Jaguar. A Disco Color Sheep. I remember when we had cool flashing sheep. We have a Spectral Deer, then a chance to earn a Tropical Splash Cow, and finally, we see a Spectral Pants Horse

Show of hands, please. How many of you play the LEADERBOARDS? Oh, my, that's a lot of you, And I'm sure you play for those InstaGrows, UnWithers and Super Fertilizers, and for the competition of beating the snot outta your neighbors. This week's LIMITED EDITION CROP CHALLENGE will see us harvesting 6000 Fiery Aploppas, and from the look of this crop Aploppa must mean fuzzy testickles. If the new crop isn't phallic then it looks like BALLS, geez. Fiery Aploppas is a 23 Hour Land Crop which will be in the market at the normal update time, 13 hours before the Leaderboard begins. Our LOCKED CROP CHALLENGE this week will have us harvesting 300 Colored Pretzel Flowers. Colored Pretzel Flowers is a Groovy Hills crop that grows in 9 Hour and half hours.

With the Musical Dash feature soon to come to an end, the FarmVille Studio has already begun work on the next all-farm feature, this time it will be the MORPH MACHINE! In the vein of Mystrees, Movie Mania and the dreaded Maharaja's Stable, the Morph Machine feature will have us choosing a stage and crafting Solar Cells to help Albert Brainstein transform beautiful Atlantean animals in his Morph Machine. This feature will start Monday February 20th. In just a few short hours from now. We get a freaky new character called Albert Brainstein and he comes with a SCIENCE LAB that is connected to the feature. Once the Morph Machine feature goes live, you will be able to access it through the Albert's Science Lab building, or via this icon on the right side of your farm screen. We will be crafting and collecting Solar Cells to transform the Atlantean Animals in the Morph Machines. It appears that the limit of solar cells that you can collect from the feed is 15 per day, but with similar past features many players were stopped at a lower number, oh, joy. You will be able to craft them in the craft shop in increments of 1,3, and 5. The recipes will not be available in the craft shop until the normal market update time prior to the scheduled beginning of the feature. We have new crops that will be needed for these recipes, that will release to the market with the same update. As always, if you do not wish to craft or collect the solar cells, you can opt to purchase them for Farm Cash. 3 new crops that we will see in each of the 3 Solar Cell recipes are the Cherry Pearl, Demeter's Breadfruit and Persephone's Pomegranate. When the feature goes live, we will be invited to choose between mini, medium and mega morpher collections. There will be some different rewards in each collection. You will be able to change your collection prior to completion ONCE only. After that you will need to complete one stage to begin another. If you do opt to switch prior to completing your collection, be aware that you will lose any morph machines that are in progress at the time. Remember that this type of feature is RANDOM and you can get several duplicate animals prior to completing your collection. Some of the rewards we can expect include a Water Warrior Wolf, Sea Queen Poodle, we have an Oceanic Meerkat, oh, this isn't looking good, already a wolf and a meercat. There's a Royal Atlantean Chicken and a Coral Grace Peacock. We have a Poseidon's Pride Horse, a Trident Head Lion and a Nereid Pegasus. Then we see a Raging Sea Bull, a Deep Sea Pig, a Glimmer Skin Leopard. There's an Undersea Legend Pegacorn, a Coraline Pegasus, an Atlantys Unicorn and a Pristine Water Magic Deer. For a complete list of rewards and a schedule to see what group they are in, Be sure to check out our COMPLETE GUIDE


You better keep track of that Candy Sushi this week. Because it's going to taste like chicken. Starting Monday and running all week. We can not only earn a large can of fuel, Unwithers and Insta Grows. You may find yourself in possession of a Sunset Owl. I wonder if Heather will win the OWL this week, ON A STICK. The following week we will be playing for a PingXi Bunny...mmmm mmmm...Candy Sushi...It's what's for SUPPER!!!

Ahhh Shucky Ducky Quack Quack! We have a new lonely animal causing havoc on our farms today! Get 5 of your friends to help wrangle up the Lovely Unicorn. This cowardly critter will look great trying to swim on the new underwater farm...maybe you can find some water wings or a float for your land critters on the next new farm


To PARAPHRASE a wise old adage. If the SERVER is a ROCKIN', then don't come a KNOCKIN', and that may be what happened to Farmville very very early this past Tuesday morning. At or about 2 AM Farmer's began reporting WHITE SCREENS in the game. After a very very whimsical investigation. Your Dirt Farmer Team speculated this may be due to every man in the world, suddenly realizing that it was Valentine's Day. They all jumped online and started order flowers and making dinner reservations. The desperate overload to the internet thingies then spread to Facebook and eventually to Farmville, So, to all the men out there who wait until the last minute to plan your Valentine's Day. GET YOUR CRAP TOGETHER. You're messin' with our Farmville time


The Dirt farmer Prides itself on keeping you up to date on the happenings of Farmville. But, lately the FV Studio is making it ridiculously easy. It appears that NOT ONLY do we know what the next new farm will be, But, we can also tell you what the farm after that one will be. Although we don't have a name for the farm that should release on or near April 17th, will be a THAILAND themed Farm. So, that means that those of you who were moaning at a second UNDERWATER farm. You can now look forward to moaning about a THIRD Asian or Far East Farm...oh, JOY!!!


Farmy Amanda is at it again. FarmVille's Royalty Loyalty Club - an invitation only perk system for long term and highly active players is running a new contest - the Valentines Day contest. Club members who send in a picture of their families, including any pets will be eligible to win one of 12 In-Game love packages. I think Locke may have sent Amanda a NAUGHTY PIC because we haven't seen either of them since, According to the email sent to select members, no pun intended. Roses are Red Violets are Blue Send me a picture of your family, pets too. Winners were suppose to have been selected on Friday February 17th. But like we said, We haven't heard a word from Amanda or Locke all week...hmmmm

Right here on this very same show, next week, we will be having our NEW FARM preview. I'm sure you all know by now that the next new farm will be an UNDERWATER farm. Similar to Atlantis. Maybe this one is in the Indian Ocean, that means we still have 3 Oceans left. Who knows, We may even get an ARCTIC OCEAN underwater farm for Christmas this year, but, I really really hope not. What we do know is that We have a new farm on the horizon, and we can tell that the beat event contains SELF CONTAINED CRAFTING, and it's main feature is called DREAM FISH which is similar to the BREEDABLE DRAGONS from AVALON and the DREAM HORSES feature. We can also report that the next new all farm feature is going to be called the MORPH MACHINE which is based on the MYSTREE FEATURE and The Maharaja Stables (both duplicate laden, multi hour wait crafting features) from Fairytale Fields and Nemaste India, respectively. We also know that FARMVILLE will continue to release new farms every 8 to 10 weeks. How do you feel about the these features and schedule of new farm releases? Do you love them or hate them? That is the question we asked this week in our POLL of the WEEK.
The Dirt Farmer wants to know: How do you feel about Self Contained Crafting, features like breedable dragons, dream horses, mystrees and the maharaja stables? Do you enjoy new farms every 8 to 10 weeks? Do you want the features to continue to be part of the game? Please let us know if you enjoy one, some, all or none.
46% say they like SOME of these crafting features
21% say they don't care for any of them since the DAWN of FARMVILLE
16% like them ALL and just cannot get enough
while 11% just like ONE of them...but we just don't know which one


Good News Farmers! We are able to confirm that the Zynga Studio has recoded the following Ox and Yak so that they will produce babies when placed in pastures. Special thanks to our own Dirt Farmer Jason who was instrumental in getting this change in coding accomplished! Be sure to check our our post on this new change for further details Click Here


Not getting credit for your goods in your crafting cottages for fuel? Do you have 200 goods just sitting there? Zynga is enforcing the CAP of 200 goods in the crafting cottages to help with the loading issues when opening those cottages! So make sure you use your goods to keep them down under 200 so you DO NOT lose credit for those goods you are crafting for fuel!

***** PODCAST *****

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!



Desert Rose

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!
