How do I get and use Fertilizer in Fae Farm?

Fertilizer is a craftable item which helps your crops grow faster or gives them added benefits. There are three kinds of fertilizer:

  • Bounteous Fertilizer
  • Magic Crop Swap
  • Zippy Fertilizer

The first place you can get fertilizer is from Holly’s Seed Shop in town. The types of fertilizer that she has for sale are listed at the end of her shop menu. However, you must first reach Farming Level 3 to buy fertilizer from her. You do this by planting and tending crops.

Holly’s shop is the best way to get fertilizer if you’re just starting the game. Making your own fertilizer requires a lot of materials which can be only obtained a little later. This is done via the Garden Bench. You can create the Garden Bench with 3 Oak Lumber, 15 Clay, and 15 Silt. You can craft Oak Lumber from putting ten Oak Logs into the Lumber Station, and you can get Clay and Silt from digging. A Garden Bench will help you make seeds and fertilizer without needing to buy them, sending you on the path to making your farm more self-sustaining.
