So, by now many of you have heard about the new Satyr Farm group, and the farms. I found I have enjoyed doing the farming. It is great for when there is not much going on within the grid but you want things to do. I started the group so that we can all help each other out to make our farming experience as smooth and fun as possible.
What can you do on the farm? Well for starters of course, you grow crops. You can auto feed and water them, or you can do it manually. Great for roleplay situations as anyone in the group you rez your farm under can help out. So, you can have your farm, farm workers. I can imagine the possibilities. Getting together for harvests etc. Raising a barn? Having a lil drink or two in the kitchen where the bar is. Who wants to come stop the grapes, or grind the olives into oil?. Want to bake a pie or cake, bread maybe? Or add more booze to the bar. Yup you can make booze too. Water the grass to feed the cows and keep them happy. Milk the cows, feed maybe that rooster is bugging you, how about taking the meat off his bones. This farm is very interactive, and the animations and all are wonderful.
You can make it as big or small as you wish. Standard size is the feed, water towers etc must be within 90 M. So, if you want a bigger farm, just add more towers and wells, as well as your storage racks. I have a special storage rack for everyone who wants to do this. This rack comes equipped with enough items to last a couple months. With this, you can start off your farm immediately instead of having to wait for the crops etc to feed the animals. You can keep growing your crops to replenish these racks as well. With these racks, you cannot auto feed at this time without some mods to the scripts, which I need to look into. But manually feeding doesn't take all that long.
With the crops, I have it all on auto water to simplify it as I have a bigger farm. You do still need your wells and water towers to be close enough of course, and when your crops are ripe, you harvest them manually. This is done so easily. You just touch your ripe field and the bucket of crops comes up. Touch the bucket and it will follow you where you go to place it in your Storage units. Or to make your items. You get items from the storage, and can also put them inside. Same with the fridge. You can fish for a while, and add that to the fridge as well. So, want a little pond to fish in? Cool. Want to fish off a dock, the possibilities are endless.
Even better, there is a Google + group called Satyr farms that you can join to get updates, information or perhaps ask a question. Everyone seems very nice and willing to help out. Your farm comes with a truck that contains a box you can link to the group. You can sell items there, and earn points. If you like to be competitive or just do it for fun, your choice there. Some have been working on mods so that you can perhaps, eat the baked goods etc. There is always interesting things to read about in this group. So, if you like the idea of adding a farm to your land, big or small, this is the group for you. I can give you the extra rack, and as well, I can help you set up if you need.
If you are interested, feel free to contact me, Tigerkitti Eberdene to join the group. Or, anyone listed in the group as a farm owner can add you. People who are your helpers will be listed as Satyr farmers. So, let's see if we can get a few more farms out there and have some fun! Happy Farming.
