You need more gold if you want to buy new things, so you could earn even more gold. That’s what it’s all about. Thus, we collected some useful tips for you. Enjoy our simple money guide and try new playing strategies!
The most profitable berry type depends on the season. We suggest you to pay your attention to strawberries in spring, blueberries in summer and cranberries in autumn. Berries give you a big advantage, since they are quite expensive and each tree produces new berries during the whole season. That’s why we mentioned this source of income first, as a method of earning easy money. If you’re not satisfied with your yield, it’s worth using fertilizer that increases your chances of growing a gold star product, which means higher prices for your goods. If there are more than 20 seeds on your field, it means that you are able to get more than 5000G selling your harvest. Don’t forget that this parameter increases as your skills develop.
Stardew Valley Fishing and Mining
Most players don’t consider such kinds of activity profitable, but we suggest you to never forget about such an approach. If you increase your skills enough, you will see how your income grows fast. If you’re mining, your main goal is an Iron Ore floor, along with a Gold Ore; that’s where you get payments. To get a bar, you need five pieces of ore. Each bar means an impressive amount of money, so you can go mining when you have a free time, and it will give you extra financial advantage.
As for fishing, it’s rather not a simple thing, especially for the first time. Don’t worry, since when you increase your skills, such a task turns to be much easier, as your catch increases and brings you more Stardew Valley money. If you try fishing all day long, you’ll be surprised by thousands of dollars and even some extra bonuses, well, if you’re lucky enough.
Everyone sells basic products, getting a stable income. However, we suggest you to take a look at the more sophisticated method, which is not really difficult though. As your skills increase, you get new opportunities of developing your technical base. In turn, it helps you to make more different products from your basic goods. Use machines, such as Mayonnaise or Keg, add your product and then wait for a couple days till it’s done.
Sometimes processing may take a few days, so it cannot be called a method of earning fast money. However, if you’re patient enough, you’ll be surprised how a relatively small amount of Egg (for example, egg worth 25G) gives you 100G of Mayonnaise. The same way, your vegetables worth from 50 to 100G can give you more than 200G if you turn them into a Jelly or Pickle.
Of course, you don’t need to choose the only one method of earning, so we suggest you to make a plan and process, for example, about 25% of your goods. If you’re afraid of this new method, you can sell other 75% just like usual, so it won’t make any risk for your budget. On the contrary, it will help you get more qualitative products end then earn much more. It’s worth buying new machines and increasing your technological base!
Prioritize Your Issues
Any successful player can tell you how it’s important to sort your tasks by priority, if you’re looking for a good income. We suggest you to start from your farm tasks. Then you can go to the mines or go fishing as well, this will help you earn extra money selling ore or fish.
Each season makes its adjustments to your activity. However, winter may be the most complicated season, since it’s the least productive time. In winter you still can spend your time usefully, working on the friendship and other stuff that is not directly related to the farm. We also advise you to think about raising animals. You don’t need to do it during summer. On the contrary, summer is a good time to prepare for breeding. However, it requires a lot of money, since you need to buy new buildings, so it’s better to start breeding only when you have enough extra cash. When you are a relatively successful farmer, investing in animals can become a good way of money making.
If you’re wondering why your work in fields takes so much time, this means you don’t upgrade your tools. Upgrading your tools, you’ll simplify your labor significantly, but prepare that it will take some time too. Each time you’re upgrading your tools, it takes a couple days to wait, so we suggest you to draw up a work plan first.
