A farmhand can aid players at their player-owned farm. Each pen can have upto 3 farmhands. Hiring a farmhand from the Farmers' Market is permanent. Players can allocate which farmhand is assigned to which pen via the pen interface on a tab called farmhands where the possible farmhands for that pen will be shown.

Jobs[edit | edit source]

  • Babysitters are farmhands that can be assigned to a pen to ensure that animals will not age beyond the adolescent stage. See below for which of the 8 babysitters can be assigned to which size of pen. To allow an animal to age further to adult/elder stage, remove the animal or the babysitter from the pen. To swap babysitters, place the new one in before removing the old one to avoid extra fees for existing animals.
  • Collectors are farmhands that store and convert excess animals from a full breeding pen into unchecked versions. There is currently only one collector.
  • Trappers are farmhands who can obtain random unchecked versions of animals for the player once every 6 hours. There is currently only one trapper.
