Recently The Dirt farmer has been doing HOLIDAY CONTESTS...Starting with Woman's Day...Continuing to St Patty's Day...and now we are going to announce the winners of our April Fool's Day Contest...But this is no trick!

There are 5 new Limited edition special crafts that have been released into the game. These special crafts will be available in the Crafting Barn between March 31, 2017 and June 30, 2017. These limited edition crafts are all items that were previously released into the game, so you may want to check and see if you have them already prior to crafting them. This time around we have the following recipes available to craft: A Chirpy Chipper Chicken, Pattern Fence, Sol Stag, Magical Willow Tree, and an Angelic Pegasus.

The Dirt Farmer is currently running another contest.  We keep trying to give  away more and more UnWither Rings and Double Statues.  We are currently running an EASTER CONTEST, so hippity hoppity on over to our website and enter.  We recommend clicking on the Facebook tab on our website to enter.  If you do decide to comment on the blogger tab, be sure to leave your NAME, your FV GAME ID and the exact prize you'd wish to win.  Unfortunately not everyone can win...but if you don't enter we can guarantee you won't win

We saw a 50% Land Sale on the recent Ode to Olympus Farm.  We first noticed the sale early this past Tuesday morning.  In case you didn't already know, these sales usually last for the entire day once they go live.  Not always a full 24 hours but very close.  So be sure to jump on these sales when you see them, that is if you need more land on the sale farm.  And be sure to check in with The Dirt Farmer's Facebook page for any and all breaking FV News!  But, sometimes it's good to be late to a party...WHY?  Because if you missed the 50% off Olympus Sale on Tuesday you could get in on the 60% Off Sale on Thursday...That's just SNEAKY!  Maybe that's why they gave us a Fairy Tale Fields WORLD SALE with a 70% OFF Discount on Friday.  I bet they felt a wee bit guilty.  If so they got over it, and how do I know...Because we saw a third OLYMPUS SALE just today, and YES...It's now at 70%!  So if you bought it at 50%, they really fooled you, and if you bought it at 60% they still fooled you.  Because now it's 70%!  DESPICABLE!!!


Shiny Scales Deer Fish Stripes Pegacorn
As expected this past Thursday our SECOND Opal's Kingdom Gifting Event went LIVE.  We can now send the Shiny Scales Deer to our neighbors, for a cost of 5 Farmcash per animal.  In return, Farmville will reward us with the Fish Stripes Pegacorn.  As always, this gifting feature can be a wee bit suspect.  In that sometimes it fails to notify your Neighbors who sent the critter, So be sure to drop them a message and let them know


Let's talk about some LEADERBOARDS.  As we all know the leaderboards are a great way to earn much needed InstaGrows, UnWithers and Super Poops, and we will see three new challenges this Wednesday.  The new LIMITED EDITION CROP CHALLENGE will see us harvesting 6000 Devil's Tongue Chili.  Okay, that just sounds naughty.  But, The Devil's Tongue Chil i 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 will require us to harvest 300 Elk Horn Coral.  The Elk Horn Coral is an Opal’s Kingdom crop that grows in 9 and a half hours.  This week's CRAFTY CHALLENGE will see us making 12 Fluorite Stones.  Fluorite Stones are a 2 hour, 1 star Crafter’s Shell recipe.


Riddle me this...What happens when you Upgrade your Shell Stronghold to Level 5, Unwrap 20 Mystery Presents in the Bubble Greenhouse, and Reach Opal's Kingdom Level 51...Well...For starters you get the BIG SCARY OCTOPUSSY'S consent to open our newest earned land expansion on the Opal's Kingdom Farm...In just a few few short hours the DIVERS DEEP expansion will be available...and it looks like it's a WATER PLOT

We have a new Farmstand heading our way in the upcoming week.  Tuesday will see the start of the Wedding Hall Farmstand.  We will have 21 days of begging our Farmville friends to click our posts so we can earn a cornucopia of wedded bliss themed critters, trees and decos.  We start off with three days for the tree farmers.  We have a Bridal Veil Tree, a Bride Gown Tree, and a Lovers Bouquet Tree.  Then we have a Rehearsal Dinner Table., a Couples Getaway Car, so, is it a wedding or a bank robbery?  Next we have an English Wedding Couple, because as we all know:  ALL GNOMES ARE ENGLISH!  There's a Wedding Lamp that will fit in nicely with all my other lamps, I think I keep them all in my DELETE area.  We have a Wedding Videographer Monkey, and a Romantic Couple Fountain, There's a Penguins Newly Wed couple.  We have a Balloon Wedding for our HOT AIR BALLOON collection.  There's a Wedding Guest Meerkat, a Ring Bearer Bear dressed like a mafia boss.  There's a Feather Bride Peacock, a Suited Groom Giraffe, a Lovely Bridesmaid Duck.  We have a Vow Reader Rooster, a Classic Groom Bull.  Just for TUCKER, we have a Beautiful Bride Pig.  We have a Fancy Groom Deer and finally a Fairy Bride Pegasus, with no wings. so she be frontin'


Round 13 of the Daily Delights will start in just a few short hours.  Besides the redeemable consumables you will also be playing for some re-cycled rewards as well.  This week's bonus is the Musical Note Sheep.  This was a Market Item back in December of 2015, what was once 16 FVCash can now be yours for free.  Next week we will have a chance to earn a Wedding Singer Chicken, which is really a re-cycle waste.  It was a free COUNTDOWN reward from January of 2015.  The Finding Love Countdown.  Our third week's bonus critter will be the Floral Madness Cow which may actually be a new item.  We'll have even more insight on ROUND 13 of the Daily Delights next week, right here on the show

A very special request for help, for Dirt Farmer Michele’s brother-in-law Ajay, and her entire family:
This is Ajay's story in case you missed it! Ajay King is one of our sweet kids we've been helping here at the The Dirt Farmer Foundation for the past months. Ajay is an adopted 16 year old kid diagnosed with a very fast moving progressive form of bone cancer. He also has Kawasaki Disease and Asperger Syndrome, which is part of the Autism Spectrum. Ajay NEEDS HELP. Family and friends are asking for support to HELP Ajay with his medical expenses and HELP cover his treatment to battle and survive this terrible disease. Any SUPPORT will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

JOIN and SUPPORT this wonderful Cause and please share with your friends.

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!

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?

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!
