Gardening | How to get food Don’t Starve Guide

Once you build the Alchemy Engine , you can finally get to building a farm. There are two kinds of these: Basic Farm and Improved Farm . The difference between those is the speed they give crops with and their longevity. The differences are outlined in the below table. Using the Basic Farm is not too effective, so it is better to create the improved ones right from the beginning.

8x Grass , 4x Manure , 4x Log

10x Grass , 6x Manure , 4x Stone

Plant growth speed

40 hours of daylight

20 hours of daylight

Number of harvests before fertilizing is necessary

After you create the farms, you need to sow plants with regular Seeds or seeds for specific plants (e.g. Carrot Seeds ). To create the latter ones, however, you need to have a bird. To learn more, read the chapter devoted to animals. Until you manage to catch a bird, you will have to make use of regular seeds, which yields random plants. The plants have been listed below.

Chance of growing

After planting, wait for 40 hours in the case of the Basic Farm and 20 hours in the case of the Improved Farm , before harvesting. Remember that only the daylight hours count here. Fortunately enough, there are several factors that increase the speed of growth. The ones that remain outside of your powers are temperature and rainfalls. If the temperature is above 28 degrees, the speed of growth is higher by 100%, and rainfalls can speed the process up even by additional 300% (depending on the intensity). Unfortunately, this works both ways. The temperature below 5 degrees halts all vegetation. That is why a farm is not the best food source during winters.

You can also speed the process up by yourself, by fertilizing the plants with Manure , Rot and Rotten Eggs . Basic Farm requires 4x Manure or 16x Rot/Rotten Egg , and Improved Farm 2x Manure or 8x Rot/Rotten Egg , to bear ripe vegetables. Still, the manure needs to be supplied in waves with intervals.

What also depends on the farm type is the number of harvests before the compulsory fertilizing. In the case of the Basic Farm it’s 20, and in the case of the Improved Farm – 30. When the soil goes barren, (it will become grey and green), every piece of Manure applied to it will allow you to grow additional 10 plants. Rot and Rotten Egg increases the number by 2.

Seeds are a Food item commonly left on the ground in Summer by Birds. While they can be eaten, Seeds are primarily used for Farming by planting them in a farm plot to grow crops. When planted, Seeds have a chance to grow into Corn, Carrot, Pumpkin, Eggplant, Pomegranate, Durian, Dragon Fruit, Watermelon (Reign of Giants and Shipwrecked only), or Sweet Potato (Shipwrecked only) (see Farming for further information). Birds, Tallbirds, Smallish Tallbirds, Smallbirds, and Pigs can eat Seeds and will pick Seeds up if they find them on the ground. Seeds can be used to bait Bird Traps.

If the temperature is 0 or below (which currently only happens during Winter), Seeds that have been planted will stop growing and cannot be forced to grow via Fertilizer.

In Don’t Starve Together, feeding Seeds to a bird in a Birdcage will spawn Guano with a 25% chance, instead of unspoiled Seeds.

Seed Chance

When planted in a farm, Seeds have the following chances to grow in to each type of crop:

Item Name Chance
from Seeds
Chance
from Seeds
Chance
from Seeds
Corn 31.6% 28.5% 22.2%
Carrot 31.6% 28.5% 22.2%
Pumpkin 10.5% 9.5% 7.4%
Eggplant 10.5% 9.5% 7.4%
Pomegranate 5.25% 4.75% 3.7%
Durian 5.25% 4.75% 3.7%
Dragon Fruit 5.25% 4.75% 3.7%
Watermelon 0% 9.5% 7.4%
Sweet Potato 0% 0% 22.2%

Toasted Seeds

Toasted Seeds are made by cooking Seeds over a Campfire, Fire Pit or Star. Unlike their raw counterpart, they restore 1 point of Health and cannot be planted or fed to birds. They also spoil four times faster than uncooked seeds.

Reign of Giants

In the Reign of Giants, Seeds can be gained by destroying Tumbleweed. This means the player can acquire Seeds during Winter. Players can also farm Watermelons by planting them in a Farm or Improved Farm, like all the other crops.
