A Beginner’s Guide to Farming in Medieval Dynasty

Starting your own medieval settlement is no easy task, but with the right strategies, you can ensure your survival. One of the most important aspects of settlement life is having a steady supply of food, and farming is the key to achieving this. If you’re new to farming in Medieval Dynasty and need some guidance, you’ve come to the right place!

Getting Started with Farming

To begin your farming journey, you’ll need the right tools. The essential tool for farming is the humble hoe. Crafting a wooden hoe is a good starting point, requiring just 1 log and 5 sticks. Simply chop down a nearby tree with your wooden axe, and you’ll have the materials needed to create your hoe.

Once you’ve crafted your hoe, it’s time to select the perfect location for your farm. Look for relatively flat land where you can plot your fields. Using the crafting wheel, navigate to the building > farming > field selection menu to create a foot-by-foot grid for your farm.

Once you’ve defined your farm’s boundaries, it’s time to plow the land. Right-click each square with your hoe to prepare the soil for planting. Congratulations, you’ve taken the first step towards a bountiful harvest!

Obtaining Fertilizer

Now that your land is prepared, you’ll need fertilizer to maximize your crop yields. There are a couple of ways to obtain fertilizer in Medieval Dynasty. The easiest and most cost-effective method is to earn Farming XP by plowing a significant amount of land. Once you’ve accumulated enough XP, you can build a barn and use the workbench to craft fertilizer using manure and a simple bag.

Manure is readily available throughout the year in every settlement. Look for farming vendors marked by a bag and wheat symbol on your compass. These vendors usually have manure for sale, and in some seasons, they may also offer fertilizer, albeit at a higher cost.

Procuring Seeds

No farm is complete without seeds. In each settlement, you’ll find farming vendors who sell a variety of seeds. In Gostovia, the first settlement you encounter, Edwin can be found in a barn next to the tavern, selling all the seeds you’ll need.

When purchasing seeds, pay attention to the seasons. Each type of seed can only be planted during specific seasons. Refer to the chart below for a quick overview:

  • Spring: Beetroot, Cabbage, Carrot, Poppy, Flax, Oat, Onion, Wheat
  • Summer: Cabbage
  • Autumn: Rye, Wheat
  • Winter: Carrot

Planting and Harvesting

With your tools, fertilizer, and seeds in hand, it’s time to put your farming skills to the test. Equip a simple bag to your hot bar and select fertilizer. Right-click on your plowed field to fertilize it, ensuring optimal growth conditions for your crops.

After fertilizing, use the hoe once again to complete the plowing process. With your field ready, it’s time to sow the seeds. Right-click with the bag equipped and navigate to the fields > “…seeds” option. Left-click on the plowed fields to sow your seeds.

As the seasons change, keep an eye on your crops. When they’re ready for harvesting, you can use your bare hands for vegetables. However, if you’ve planted grains, you’ll need a scythe. Look for one in knocked-over carts along the road or consider borrowing or even stealing one from a vendor. Alternatively, focus on planting vegetables like cabbage, carrots, and onions to avoid the need for a scythe altogether.
