In the free-to-play farm simulation Big Farm, you are placed in the shoes of an eager farmer tasked with cultivating their farm. This may sound easy but you’ll face many different challenges along the way which require a lot of skill and strategic thinking to overcome. We’ve put together and summarised the best features:
Daily Routine on the Farm:
Day to day life on the farm is far from easy and really puts your skills to the test. You need to build fields, farmland and production facilities, bring in the harvest, feed the animals and then bring your goods to market in order to make a profit. This money can then be invested in growing new fruit and vegetables or nurturing new animals. It really pays to take good care of your animals, as the happier they are, the faster their numbers will grow to the point where you’ll have a number of cute rabbits or piglets running across the screen.
Of course, you don’t have to do this all alone. You have a large range of different workers and farmhands at your disposal, either on the farm itself or in the production facilities. But watch out! Even the employees need to be looked after. If you don’t keep up with their needs, you could be hit with a strike, lowering or even stopping your productivity all together. So remember! Happy workers = Productive workers!
The Farming Community

These give you access to special ‘team advantages’ making the completion of certain tasks, such as growing a particular number of fruit within an exact timeframe, a lot easier. These alliances can even lead to new friendships, meaning others will happily visit your farm to speed up the productivity of your facilities for you.
