Farm totem detail.png

The farm totem is an item which can be purchased from the Farmers' Market for 200 beans. It may be placed in a farm totem hotspot next to any paddock at the player-owned farm. When placed next to a paddock containing an elder animal, the player will receive a specific perk corresponding to that animal. At total of six farm totems may be purchased, a number sufficient to place on every pen except the breeding pen, which lacks 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!, and Bean There, Done That are Farming achievements requiring the totems.
