Stardew Valley – Villagers Birthdays, Favorites and Where or How to Get Them

Raise your hearts fast by giving them the stuff they love. This guide excludes the Ginger Island content.

A Few Notes Before We Get Started

There might be a few grammar or spelling errors here. I did it all on a word document and I’m quite disappointed that it doesn’t look like I can just upload via file upload. Oh well.

Again, this guide excludes the addition of Ginger Island.

  • Several involve a trip to the Calico desert. You can go there via the broken-down bus once you fully invest in the community center’s vault (or buy it I guess, I’ve never done Joja). Once the bus is fixed, pay your 500g and tadaaa! There you will find coconuts, cactus fruit, and the “Oasis” where Sandy works and sells exclusive seeds, one for each of the seasons (excluding winter, of course) Beets, Starfruit, and Rhubarb.
  • If you plan to do a lot of cooking, it would be good idea to invest in a Mill so Pierre doesn’t keep draining your pockets. Robin will build it for 2,500g, 50 stone, 150 wood, and 4 cloth. The cloth will be the only difficult thing to come by. If you’re friends with Emily she might mail you one. The last barn upgrade, “Deluxe Barn” unlocks sheep (and pigs), the sheep wool can be turned into cloth via the Loom.
  • In terms of gifting, for artisan items (such as wine/jelly/pickles) use cheap ingredients. All they care about is whether or not it’s wine, jelly, or pickles.

There several seasonal crops can be milled into ingredients. Rice shoots are spring crops that will give you unmilled rice, mill it to get legit. Wheat is both summer and fall crop, mill for flour. Let’s get some sugar, sugar! Throw beets in the mill to get you the sugar you need for all those villages with a sweet tooth, beet seeds can only be bought from Sandy at Oasis in the Calico Desert and can only be planted in fall.

**Plant Rice seeds near water to irrigate it, it not only cuts 2 days off the growth time but saves you the hassle and energy of watering them.

The Artisan Goods and Equipment
