10+ tips, cheats, tricks and hints for playing Farmville 2: Country Escape!

Farmville 2: Country Escape is a mobile game which recreates the fun of the original Farmville Facebook game on iOS and Android devices. Run a farm, plant crops, tend to animals, produce goods, sell farm orders, and more!

Though it's pretty easy to play the game, there's lots of things you can do to progress levels quicker, make more money, and earn more keys. Here's 10+ tips to help you while playing Farmville 2: Country Escape!

1. Save Your Keys for Upgrades and Special Items

Like most free-to-play games, premium currency like keys are hard to come by; you only get them as special rewards or by spending real money to buy them. For that reason, save your keys for upgrades or for special items only. While it may be tempting to use them to speed up farming or crafting: don't. Just be patient and save them for the things you can only use keys to unlock.

2. Upgrade Your Barn and Silo ASAP

Upgrade your barn as soon as possible!
Upgrade your barn as soon as possible!

One thing you'll notice in the game is that you'll quickly run out of storage space in both your barn (and later silo, when you unlock it). It's best to upgrade these storage spaces ASAP. You can upgrade using the required items: locks, nails and shovels, but you can also use keys to upgrade in a pinch. This is one of the rare times it's a good idea to actually use your keys to upgrade.

3. Have 2 of Everything

Take a lesson from Noah and his ark; it's best to have two of everything in the game.

You definitely want to have two of all workshops: two pastry ovens, two dairy, two stovetops, two dinner ovens, two looms, etc. I recommend having at least three windmills.

You'll also want two of all the animals: two cows, two chickens, two goats, two sheep, and two pigs.

Then, finally, make sure you have two of each farming plots/trees: two wheat, corn, carrot, strawberry, and tomato crops; two lemon, peach, and apple trees, and two beehives.

This will make it easier and quicker to craft and complete orders. While the first of everything takes coins, you'll need keys to unlock the second animal, workshop and crop; again, this is a good time to use your keys.

4. Always Utilise All Aspects of the Farm

Time is money in this game, so make sure you always have your farm at work.

Make sure you're always feeding animals, have something being produced in the workshop, the crops/trees growing fruits and vegetables, and farm hands exploring the various locations around the farm.

Check in periodically and make sure you're utilising every area of your farm.

5. Take Advantage of Daily Freebies

There's plenty of daily freebies in the game that you can use to get rewards in the game.

  • You can watch up to ten videos (ads) a day in the game to get free products.
  • Spin the prize wheel once a day (connect with Facebook to unlock more free spins)
  • Pan for products once a day (for free, you can pan for other items after your free turn by using coins and keys).

6. Don't Forget the Tool Shed!

The tool shed allows you to produce 1 shovel every 8 hours for ten coins. You need lots of shovels in the game, to upgrade your barn/silo or remove logs on new pieces of land, so make sure you're always producing shovels in the tool shed!

7. Use as Many Farmhands as Possible While Exploring

Notice the green circle around the product?  That means you're guaranteed to receive it after the exploration!
Notice the green circle around the product? That means you're guaranteed to receive it after the exploration!

When exploring special areas like Grandma's Glade, Pappy's Pond, Merryweather Mine and more, make sure you're using as many farmhands as possible to complete the tasks.

You'll see the available rewards on the side will have a green circle around them, which means you're guaranteed to get that item during your exploration. If the circle is yellow or red, that means your chance is lower. The more farmhands you have on an exploration, the more products will have the green circle.

Make the most out of each exploration and increase your yield by putting the max amount of farmhands on each trip!

8. Sell Extra Products

There's a lot of ways to sell extra products and I'll explain them in detail below. But a good rule of thumb to go by is to keep no more than 5 excess products in your barn or silo at a time. It's a good way to stay on top of maintaining your storage space.

9. Increase the Price of Goods You Sell at the Market

One place you can sell your goods and products at is the market. This market allows other players to buy stock from you directly.

When you're selling at the market, sell you stock for the maximum amount possible. Click on the good you're selling and press the plus button until it's at the highest amount.

It might take a while to sell goods this way, but someone will eventually buy it. Players will be desperate to buy goods to complete timed-orders and often won't care how high the price is.

10. Get Instant Cash on the Farm Orders Board

While you have to wait for an actual player to buy your products on the Market, you can get instant cash from selling things directly on the Farm Orders board. Check the board to see what items you can buy. The more items you sell, the more sales bonuses you unlock (which rewards you with products, coins and keys) as well!

11. Refresh the Farm Orders Board Until You Can Sell

Sometimes you'll find that you don't have the right quantities or products to sell on the Farm Orders board. You can click the "x" button on the top right of each product and wait 10 minutes for a new order. I do this every ten minutes when I'm playing to get more items to sell. There's no penalty for rejecting orders and waiting for new ones!

12. Keep an Eye on Your Quest Book to Get Easy Rewards

The Quest Book gives you certain tasks to complete and the rewards can be keys, products, or XP points. Most of the requests in the Quest Book are pretty simple: collecting certain produce, crafting items, selling goods, etc. It's generally things you'd already do, but you'll get special rewards for completing them, in addition to whatever coins you'd get for selling the products.

13. Sell Goods on the Farm Orders Board to Complete a Task on the Quest Book

Sometimes the Quest Book will require you to sell a particular item. Keep in mind it will only clear if you sell it via the Farm Orders board: not as a quick sell on the silo, or in the market.

14. Use Your Speed Grow/Helping Hands to Finish Timed Tasks

Use your speed grow only when you need products to complete a timed task.

If you're doing a time-sensitive tasks, that's a good time to use your Speed Grow to speed up a crop/tree and your Helping Hands to speed up a workshop item. Try to save them ONLY for times when you're trying to complete a time-sensitive task (like an order for Eddie, or a special event).

You can get more Speed Grow and Helping Hands by joining a Co-Op or connecting to Facebook and requesting them from friends.

15. Connect to Facebook and Join a Co-Op

Speaking of Facebook and Co-Ops, it's worth it to do both in the game to get more rewards, farm hands and trade goods.

You can find a Co-Op without connecting your Facebook account. The Co-Op is super helpful as you can request to borrow farm hands (which you can use in Grandma's Glade, etc.) you can ask for goods and people in the Co-Op can list them for you to buy, and you can also get bonus spins on the wheel, or chances to pan for goods, etc.

If you connect your Facebook account, and have friends who play, you can exchange gifts with them, like Speed Grow and Helping Hands.

If you don't have any friends who play Farmville, you can also make a gaming account specifically for the game, and then add people who are looking for Farmville friends and connect that account with your game!

16. Participate in Special Events to Get Extra Coins and Items

Make sure you check into the game and play special events to get extra items!
Make sure you check into the game and play special events to get extra items!

Like many games, FarmVille 2: Country Escape has lots of seasonal and special events that you can participate in. Every holiday from Christmas to Mother's Day has had special events where you can craft limited-time objects, hire limited-time farm hands and animals, and participating in these tasks can lead to big rewards: coins, keys, products and more.

Make sure to check into the game during the holidays to see if there's a special event running and make the most of it by participating and completing the timed-tasks!
