*Thanks to Clench281 for Farm Design Reference

Takakura's House
Duh, Takakura lives here, but most of the time he's not home.  He's always
wondering around town so don't expect him taking a nap when you walk in.

Food Storage Room
You can store food in here, ship your dairy products, order animals+tools+items+
upgrade buldings, and ship vegetables after getting 2nd generation crops.

Dog House
You never have to put your dog to his house, but you can set food for your
dog here in his food tray.

Home
There is your castle and here you go to sleep, save, cook, watch tv, read
info on game tips, play your music records.  Your child and wife will
stay with you in your home once you're married (starting 2nd year).

Chicken Coop
This is where chikens go, you can put chiken feed in there to feed them.
Incubator here too where you can hatch eggs, sometimes even ducks after
you get them ~_^

Well
Fill up water here in your watering can to water your crops.

Tool Shed
All your tools are located here as well as all your other equipment. You
can find a music record in the cabinet here and also your seeds, etc are
in there too.  You can enter the Barn from here also.

Barn
All your animals stay here where you basically milk, clip, hug, talk, etc.
A switch in the back allows all the animals to come back inside if you
let them out into the pasture to have some fun in the sun.

Pasture
Unlimited grass can be sickled down here to make fodder and might I add that
finally no more spending 500G a bag to buy grass seeds (HM:FoMT).  Also a
switch is located outside on the Barn letting all the animals outside in the
sun keeping them happy.

Water
Bring your animals next to it to wash them with the brush.

Fields
Un-Fertilized - Usually trees can be planted here keeping it away from the crops.
Fertilized Field - Seeds can be planted but might need more management
Very-Fertilized Field - Great area to plant vegetables

7.[..Character Help and FAQs..]-------------------------------------------------

Everybody in the town love to receive items, and you can make good friends
with them from giving them what they (like)(Check their likes and dislikes in
other general faqs). Some can even make your life easier on the farm so check
out the rest.

Daryl - the local scientist will give you a seed-maker for free by the end of
        the year if you give him fishes(preferably a snelt). Or give him his
        likes (eggs, bones, coins, Earth Soup). The Seed-Maker can be bought
        for 6000G.

Van - can visit mineral town if you link gba and gcn together.

Tim & Ruby - go to their room when Tim is there 8am, and they will give you

          to upgrade ranks
        - Tartan can't use flowers on the tree seeds
        - Upgrade ranks on Trees w/out Fertilizer by mixing high-rank

       - Don't bother your cows if they are sleeping
       - Feed them 2 times a day
       - you can Milk them 2 times a day	
       - Cows can be milked for four seasons after giving birth
       - Feeding them good fodder (order from Notebook in Food Storage
         Room) will make them happier, thus giving you grade S milk (natural
         happiness is better).
       - You can keep your cow & impregnate it again or you can sell it once
         it's done producing milk and buy a better cow.
       - Don't Seed more than 1 cow, they must be 10 days or more apart
         before seeding another.
       - Pregnant cows must be fed accordingly due to their lack of movement
       - Once you get the Milk Processing Room, cows will milk themselves

(Calf) - Feed them "Special Milk" twice a day right after it's born
       - Feed it regular milk once the "Special Milk" is no longer available
(Additional Info) - You must also pay to have a cow seeded. A heifer will
                    not give milk until she has a calf, and will only give
                    milk for about a year after the calf's birth. Then the
                    cow will have to be seeded again. However, if you have
                    a heifer mate with one of the bulls on your own farm, then
		    it will cost nothing to have it seeded.
                  - Cross breeding is possible between Normal, Brown, Marble
                    and Star cows.

(Chicken) - In order to incubate eggs you must have a hen and a rooster with
            a fertilized egg.
          - Before buying a chicken make sure you have enough money to buy
            the Chicken Feed
(chicken feed must be ordered from the Food
            Storage Room).
          - Taking good care of chickens can result in Golden Eggs, which
            sell for 300G each.
	  - Eggs take 5 days to hatch & it takes baby chicks another 5 days
            before they can mature.

(Sheep)   - They are clipped once a season (be sure to have a pair of
            clippers/shears).
	  - Keeping them in great condition results in Golden Wool (hug it
            twice a day).
          - Keep in mind that Sheeps cannot be sold.
          - Don't bother your sheep if they are sleeping.
	  - Wash it & Brush it!

(Horse)   - Randomly given to you by Takakura anytime of the year.
          - Keep it outside when nice out, Ride it, Wash it.
	  - Be sure to feed it everyday, brush & talk to it.
	  - Drastically shortens the time getting around town by riding it.
	  - Don't bother your horse if they are sleeping.

(Goats)   - Van sells goats in Chapter 2, Spring (each spring every year)
            (costs 4000G).
          - Gives milk for about one year
	  - Don't bother your goats if they are sleeping
	  - Brush & Wash it

(Ducks)   - A Pond must be built during Chapter 1 (ordered/bought from
            storage room).
          - Must be raising less than 6 chickens
          - You can choose weather or not to keep them or not
          - Placing some of the eggs in the incubator can hatch ducks
            instead of chikens.
	  - Can be sold for 500G.

(Dogs)    - Be sure to feed it everyday if you want it to be happier
          - Once the dog becomes happy you can hug it
	  - If you kept your dog really happy he'll follow you, bark,
            & maybe even learn tricks.
	  - Chihuahua can be available after collecting all the Tablets
            in the Mines.
          - The dog also chases away strangers.

(Cat)     - Romana stops by with a cat (Fall, 1st year of Chapter 2).
          - You must be good friends with her in order for her to bring
            the cat.

9.[..Crops..]-------------------------------------------------------------------

Before I begin to write down any useful information on crops, everyone has
to understand that crops (vegetables) in this game aren't really meant to
be grown for huge profits.

- Crops can be used more for making home cooked meals.
- Don't buy seeds that belong in a different season, they wont grow.
- You can water your plants more than once a day (watering more makes it
  grow faster).
- Fertilizer helps make high grade vegetables (Grade-A, Grade-S)(sells
  for more $).

a. (Fertilizer)
 - Fertilizing is expensive but it is well worth it because when you use
   S-Level vegetables in the seed-maker, you'll get S-Level seeds to grow
   S-Level crops.
 - Plow->Fertilizer->Plant Seed (A-Grade 4X, S-Grade 8X)
 - The more Fertilizer you use the higher the Grade of vegetable (don't
   overuse).
 - Water as much as you can.

b. (Planting)
XOXOXOX - Plant in Checkered formation (results in faster growth & less
          watering).
OXOXOXO - 3rd generation crops + sweet potatoes in checkered formation.
XOXOXOX - Every other crop can be bunched up together.

c. (Trees) - Can be planted any time of the year
        - Keep crops 2 spaces away (failing will result in dead crops)
        - Plant them in the smaller fields (add fertilizer)
	- Trees take 30X of Fertilizer for S-Grade fruits
	- Although fruits make ok profit, the seeds go for alot of $money$
          so after getting the seed-maker, take the fruits and put them
          through the seed-maker resulting in bags of seeds which can be
          sold for 1000+ (save fruits for the seed-maker).

d. (Watering)
	- You start out with a regular watering-can, but you can buy a
          Large Watering can which is definetly helpful so less trips
          are taken to the water pump.
	- Water twice a day (water more if you can)
        *(Wooden Watering Can) - grows trees much faster
                               - become good friends with Romana for it

e. (Tools)
	- Just like every HM game, you can upgrade your tools, but here we
          can go ahead and just buy the upgraded ones (example. Heavy Hoe,
          Hoe, Light Hoe).
	- Pros & Cons. Heavier tools builds up stamina, but makes you tired
          faster. Lighter tools lets you work more, but takes longer to
          build stamina.


10.[..Nature - Plants & Flowers..]-----------------------------------------------

For beginners these are great to start out with.  Everything listed below
that can be used to feed yourself and your dog helps out the most towards
the beginning.  Instead of drinking milk or spending money on drinks, you
can eat some of the plants to reduce hunger. Your dog must be fed too and
the plants will do the trick.

(Spring)
Mugwort             - best to use for feeding yourself or for your dog's
                      meal (cooking & present).
Goddess Drop Flower - Muffy is attracted to these alot (selling & present)

                 (cooking & present).
Amorous Flower - present.
Upseed Flower  - Mix with a seed to make it Grade-S (selling & present).

11.[..Van's Shop..]--------------------------------------------------------------

Van is really important in this game.  He is basically your bank whenever
you're in need for money. He buys EVERYTHING. Try not to sell him so much
crops (unless they are high Grade) because he doesn't give much, but after
having too many vegetables you can sure get rid of them.  Sell fish to him,
he'll give away alot for that which is also a good tip for beginners.

(GBA LINK-UP) - the SEASIDE COTTAGE will be available in HM:FOMT after you
get all 42 Link-Up Points.

12.[..Your Shop..]---------------------------------------------------------------

- A good way of selling your items would be to set up your own shop. You can
  set one up where Van usually sets up his shop under the tree. Simply walk
  under the tree and select to set up shop.  A good way to attract customers
  is to whistle with the R button.  Also wait until you actually see people
  coming around that area, then set up the shop and immediatly whistle to get
  their attention.

- Bargain with them and offer them items for the cheaper price, this way
  they will begin to like you more in becoming your friend.  This is a
  plus because they will give you free items if you become good friends
  with them.

13.[..Bankrupt?..]---------------------------------------------------------------

Now you're broke and have no money left and you are in desperate need for
as much as you can get. There are many ways to get quick and easy money if
you use some common sense.

- unlimited amount of fodder on your field, sell fodder to Van.
- sell your "failed" dishes to Van.
- catch fish.
- sell flowers.
- sell plants that grown on your farm/town.

15.[..Fishing..]-----------------------------------------------------------------

- Fishing Pole is purchased from Van
- Fishing is definetly a great way of getting quick and easy money and the
  best thing to do towards the beginning of the game is to fish.
- If you refuse the first time when you are trying to sell your fish to
  Van, try to sell it the second time and he might offer you more money.
- Also fishing in the mourning/early afternoon & while raining racks in
  great fishes.

(Fishing Pole #2)
Become friends with Galen and by Chapter 3 you'll be able to get it (it's
better to wait till Chapter 3 to get it).

 Hybrid Trees and 3rd Generation Hybrid Crops won't be listed.  Since the list
 for this is very long, detailed information can be found at the credited website.
