Valheim Farming Tips

Generally, I find it easier to use a hoe and to flatten a patch of land before using a cultivator to add cultivated land for farming. Right now, I’m working on two crops that I’m not sure there’s more at this time. Carrots and turnips are exactly what I’m using. Carrot seeds can be found in the Black Forest and Turnips in the swamp.

Valheim Farming

You can turn one carrot into a carrot seed by right-clicking on the cultivator and planting the carrot seed. The same thing with turnips, you’re going to get 3 seeds per seed plant you’re collecting once it’s grown. Which can then be planted in carrots or turnips. These things are great at the moment to turn into soups that you can eat and they work better than just eating berries on their own.

Valheim Fermenting Tips

If you want to have an easier time, you’ll need to learn how to make a decent mead.

  • Fermenter – 30x fine wood, 5x bronze bars, and 10x resin
  • Beehive – 10x wood, 1x queen bee (I found a lot in abandon buildings just knock the walls or trees down around them and pick up the queen bee.)
  • Cauldron – 10x tin, use it to ferment over a fire, then place it in a fermenter.

Make a fire, add a cauldron, collect the necessary items, make a base of mead, add a base of mead to the fermenter, which must be covered like any other workbench, and wait for 45 minutes.

Valheim Food Tips

Right now I’m going to go over food that’s not a berry or basic meat. If you’re not familiar with health and stamina, every food you eat has a set amount that will boost your stat by, duration, and healing amount per tick I’m going to add that information to this item.
