Farm totem detail.png

The farm totem is an item which can be purchased from the Farmers' Market, and the Farmers' Market at the Ranch Out of Time, for 200 beans. It may be placed in a farm totem hotspot next to any paddock at the Manor Farm and Ranch Out of Time. When placed next to a paddock containing an elder animal, the player will receive a specific perk corresponding to that animal. A total of ten farm totems may be purchased, a number sufficient to place on every pen except the breeding pens, which lack a hotspot.

Totems can be removed from one pen and added to a different pen.

By adding an elder animal to a pen equipped with a farm totem, players receive a Tier 1 perk. By putting the same species of animal in the second pen that is also equipped with a farm totem, players instead receive the Tier 2 perk. Animals that have male/female perks that differ but occupy the same pen (equipped with a farm totem) will receive both the male and female version of the perk.

Perk Up!, Perk Out!, Bean There, Done That, and Bean There, Done That, Got the Postcard are Farming achievements requiring the totems.

  • patch 24 September 2018 (Update):
    • You no longer get a message that you need inv space when opening the farmers market with a full inv. This was caused by a redundant check on the farm totems and we've instead moved the check to a requirement for buying the totems. As a result, totems will now appear locked if you don't have space to buy one.
