Beginner’s Guide for Hay Day

Need construction or expansion items

You can find construction and expansion items, like duct tape, planks, marker stakes, mallets and others, by harvesting your fields, collecting products or opening red tool boxes.

You can also buy them in the newspaper or from your neighbors and friends if they have some to spare. We advise to check regularly in the ads and in other farm’s roadside shops to take advantage of any offer you might find!

In case you don’t find enough, you can buy these items with diamonds by clicking on the “+” button next to them.

Mid level rewards

Starting at Level 15 you will be rewarded for the progress you make in the game!

Do you see those marks in your XP (experience) bar? Those marks indicate at what point you will receive a special gift to reward the efforts and hard work you put in your farm.

Keep harvesting crops, completing orders and what ever else you do on your farm, and you will be able to receive those extra rewards 😉

How do I move something on my farm?

You can move around buildings, pens, fields and trees by tapping and holding the item you want to move, and when it starts to flash you can move it to a new free location.

  1. First tap and hold the object you want to move.
  2. Once the object starts to flash and shows the rotation menu, you can drag it around freely as long as you don’t let go of it.
  3. Now simply drag and drop the object onto a cleared area on the farm. Note that When the object shows a red color, the location is invalid.
  4. If at any time your object is stuck behind another building, just tap and hold the hidden part of the object you want to select.

How do trees and bushes work?

Trees and bushes are different than other crops. You can place fruit trees and berries bushes in your farm and you can collect fruit or berries from them for three times in a row.

After that, you can ask your friends and fellow farmers to help you with an additional harvest. Just drop the “!” sign next to the dying tree / bush and any other farmer who will visit your farm will be able to revive them, giving you the possibility to collect fruits and berries one more time. If you are connected to Facebook, you can even use the “megaphone” to let your Facebook friends know that you need help in your farm!

When you’ve collected fruits or berries the fourth time, unfortunately the trees and bushes will die. You will have to cut them down to clear space in your farm and plant more!

How does the Mine work?

To excavate ores, you will need to use either TNT, shovels, pickaxes or dynamite in the Mine (starting at level 24)! With these explosives and tools, you will collect different kinds of ores that can be used in the Smelter to make gold, silver, platinum, iron or refined coal bars.

If you’re lucky, some diamonds may also be found. Also remember to check the newspaper ads and your friends shops: they may have ore and bars for you to purchase!

How to get rid of the scarecrow? (Who is he?)

The Scarecrow is meant to be the friendly neighborhood assistant to help explain features of the game with quick and easy tutorials.

Once you complete the steps of the tutorial he is currently showing you, he will go away until you discover the next new feature.

If you have more questions about the Scarecrow, a specific tutorial, or are having trouble – you can feel free to search the FAQs for the specific topic the tutorial is about.

I lost a field/ decoration/ other item (Can’t find it)

Items like fields, decorations/ other items on your farm, cannot be lost, stolen or go missing, however they can be misplaced or they can be hidden somewhere.

It may be that your lost item is stuck behind a building that cannot be moved (like your main house or the truck delivery board), just tap and hold on the building where the item is hidden behind and move the item as soon as it becomes visible. Please check carefully behind trees, buildings, other animals, fences and such.

How do I expand my farm?

On the right hand of your farm you have the possibility to buy additional land slots in order to obtain more space for your diverse farm activities. This addition to the game will be unlocked once you reach level 22 . You can choose the field you wish to expand and click on it. Land deeds, mallets and marker stakes are needed for a land expansion. The number of tools needed depends on the size of the lot of land and is indicated once you tap on it:

READ:  Welcome to the Town: Hay Day

In the example below 15 each are needed of land deeds, mallets and marker stakes. The numbers on the left indicate how many tools you have, the numbers on the right how many you still need. In order to purchase the land expansion above, two more land deeds are needed.

You can acquire them in one of two ways: wait until the missing land deeds are found through playing the game (harvesting crops, collecting products from animals, spinning the wheel etc.), or you can purchase the missing land deeds for 24 diamonds by clicking on the “+” icon. Using the second option, you will be immediately able to expand your farm.

When all the necessary tools have been collecte, the green round button on the right can be tapped to expand the farm.

With more land plots you’ll be able to have even more fun with your farm!

Where can I buy diamonds and coins?

If you are in need of more diamonds & coins to finish upgrades or buy items in Hay Day, the only way to do that is through the in-game shop which runs via iTunes and Google Play.

There are several third party websites who offer in game currency for Hay Day. Please notice that using sites like these is against our terms of service, and we reserve the right to take actions against accounts that do not follow our terms of service. Often these third parties will ask for your Game Center credentials. If you share your Game Center ID and password with somebody, this person might be able to access your game through Game Center.

In case you have purchased diamonds from somewhere other than through the game, we unfortunately cannot assist you any further as it is a violation of our Terms and Conditions.

How many bees can I have?

All our farmers start with a tree with one beehive. As your bees gather more and more nectar, they will become more adept at gathering the sweet stuff. Gather enough nectar and you will be able to hang another beehive from the same tree. You can look up how much nectar has been gathered for thе tree by selecting the tree and by tapping on the “i” icon.

Your tree can hold up to 4 beehives and each hive can house up to 3 bees. With 3 bees per hive, you can have a total of 12 bees. Meaning you will be able to collect a lot more nectar with all those bees buzzing around!

Be careful, bees don’t like to be put in beehives that already have too many bees. If you get a message that a hive already has the maximum amount of bees, simply drag the bees you want to buy to another beehive.

Congratulations, you’re well on your way to bee-coming a successful beekeeper!

How do I get diamonds?

  10. In addition to all that, you can always buy diamonds by tapping on the “+” button next to your diamond balance.

Decorative Animals

Frogs, foxes, butterflies, birds and others are decorative animals, and they visit the farms every now and then. They have no particular aim and they do not threaten the farm in any way. Some decorations may increase the possibility to have more of them (just check the description of the decoration), but unfortunately we cannot put these animals in the farms or take them away.

Please, also notice that these animals need free space in order to move, so if your farm is a little crowded they may be stuck and unable to move from their spot. You may want to consider storing some decorations and rearranging the farm’s design to leave them more free space.

Some decorations may increase the possibility to have more of a certain type of animal, for example adding a pond will increase the number of frogs that visit your farm and a birdhouse may attract more birds. Tap repeatedly on the decoration to attract your desired animals.

You can check the description of the decoration for more information.

Lumberjack for hire?

The lumberjack is your friendly neighbor Greg, armed with axes and saws to clear your farm of any dead trees and bushes. This is an offer and will make limited appearances from Level 25 onward. It only triggers if your farm has 20 or more permanently dead trees and bushes at the time of the offer.

Please keep in mind that Greg won’t appear on your farm, but you will see selected dead bushes and trees all getting chopped and sawed down at the same time.

Hiring the Lumberjack will save you 50% off the full diamond price (50% off from what you would pay if you bought axes and saws with diamonds to cut down your dead bushes and trees), and he will cut down 20 at a time. What he cuts down will depend on what dead trees and bushes you have on your farm. If you have dead nectar bushes, these will be targeted first, followed by a random selection of dead trees and bushes. It’s the most aMOOzing way to quickly get rid of the ‘dead wood’ off your farm!

Help feature in Truck

Tap on an Order and then place the exclamation mark on it to request for help. You can get up to 3 help requests per day from other farmers globally and 1 more exclusive to your neighbors, for the total of 4 per day.

Farmers can find the help request through the Daily Dirt. Upon entering your farm, the exclamation mark will appear on the Truck Board. After tapping on it, the Board will open up to fulfill the requests. Rewards for the helping farmer will include not only the usual thank-you note, but also the rewards offered by the specific order. All in one go!
