Country Life Beginners
Getting started – After installing your game, you will be walked through a brief tutorial to get you started. There is nothing to set up since you do not have an avatar. Not having an avatar is good in a way because you do not have to wait on the avatar to plow fields. As time as you click a field it is plowed, planted, or harvested. If you had an avatar, you would have to wait on them. So, that’s the good thing about this game. So, after you finish the brief tutorial, you will be well on your way to building a nice ranch.
Plowing fields – When starting out in Country Life, you will want to plant you some fields to get started. First, plant fields and then plant seeds. To start plowing fields, you will need to select the Plow tool in your bottom toolbar. Then click somewhere on your farm to plant the field. You can only plant fields if the plot turns green. If you have a red plot, that means a field cannot be plowed there. Move it to somewhere else. It will cost you 15 coins to plow one field and you will earn 1 point.
Planting seeds – Next, you will want to plant seeds in the fields you have plowed. If you are just getting started, you will only have clovers unlocked. After you start leveling up, you will unlock more seeds. To plant seeds, you will need to click the Store icon in your bottom toolbar. Then click the Seeds category and click the seeds you want to plant. The store will close and you will need to click a field to plant what you have selected. To plant the same thing in another field, simply click the other field. If you want to change your seeds, open the store again and select another type of seeds.
Harvesting crops – When your crops are ready, you will need to harvest them. To harvest your crops, click the arrow icon in your bottom toolbar. Then click the field or fields that are ready to harvest. The crop will be collected and placed in your barn.
Harvesting trees– You can also harvest your trees in Country Life. To harvest your trees, simply click them. The trees will then be harvested and placed in your barn.
Selling crops – After you harvest your crops and trees, they will be placed in your barn. If you want to sell your crops, you will need to open your barn. Don’t be so quick to sell everything though, many things can be used to make other things like bread, jam, and wine. We will get into that a little further down in this guide. Anyway, open your barn by clicking the Barn icon in your bottom toolbar. Once the barn opens, you will see the items you have harvested. Click the sell button on the items that you want to sell. If you only want to sell a few items, adjust the number of items by using the arrows beside the number of crops you have. Then click the sell button. Your crops will be sold and the coins will be added to your total.
Moving items and fields – You can easily move items and fields anywhere you want them in Country Life. That is one of the cool things about this game. To move items and fields, click the crosshair icon in the bottom toolbar. Then click the item you want to move and move it to where you want it. You can even move planted fields. Once you have the object where you want it, click your mouse again to place it.
Deleting items – If you want to delete items in Country Life, you will need to click the X icon in the bottom toolbar. Then click the item you want to sell. Most items, when clicked with this tool, will allow you to sell them for a small amount of coins. However, some of them won’t.
Shopping – Shopping in Country Life is a blast. There are many things to choose from in the Country Life store. To open the store, click the store icon in the bottom toolbar. Then click the category at the top of the store that you want to view. Let’s take a look at the different categories in the store.
- Seeds – The seeds category is where you will need to go to purchase your seeds you want to plant in your fields.
- Trees – You can buy trees to grow fruit. These fruits can then be used to create jams or sold as fruit.
- Animals – The animals are used to produce things like milk, eggs, and wool which are needed to create things like sweaters and bread. Animals are an important part of the game. You can buy the animals by clicking the Animal tab in the store.
- Gear – The gear category is where you will purchase things like your chicken coop, cheese maker, and other machines that produce and make things. Most of these machines require you to be on a higher level, so if you are just getting started, ask your friends to gift you some of the machines or else level up as quickly as you can.
- Decorations – Decorations are simply items that can be bought and placed on your ranch to decorate it. The decorations really don’t offer much, just a good looking ranch.
- Fertilizer – Fertilizers can only be purchased with ranch cash. The fertilizers range from water to soil. Buying the fertilizers will speed up the growth of your crops.
- Expand – You have the option of expanding your ranch. Expanding your ranch can be done from the Expand category in the store.
- Automation – This section of the store allows you to automatically harvest your items. If you have a ton of crops and trees to harvest, you can purchase an automation and it will be quickly done for you. Under this category, you will see the options for automation.

Country Life Strategy
Hold your ingredients – Don’t be so quick to sell your ingredients. Most of the ingredients will earn you more money by making things like bread and cheese.
Grow crops for your machines – If you own machines, focus on growing crops that can be placed in the machines. These items will earn you more money.
Invest in animals – Buy animals to help with the ingredients you need to make things with your machines.
Use your fruit to make jams – When you harvest your trees, you can save the fruit from the trees to make jams. Making jam will earn you a lot more than just selling the fruit.
Ask friends to send you machines – Ask your friends to send you machines in Country Life. Receiving these machines as gifts will save you money and you can start making your own cheese and other things.
Focus on the cow and cheese machine – These two items work great together. You feed the cow to get milk and then place the milk in the cheese machine to make cheese. It only takes a minute to make cheese, so this is a good way to build up your money and points.
Plant crops around your schedule – Crops mature at different rates and therefore take longer to reach harvesting age. With that in mind, you may not be able to harvest crops if your schedule doesn’t allow for it. Thus you’ll want to plant crops that will reach harvesting age when you’re available to play Country Life. If you are unable to harvest the crops when they are ready you may lose them and your profits.
Increase your farm – Expanding your farm is important to increase your profits. You should add more fields and plant more crops to increase your Country Life profits.
Help neighbors – As you play the game make sure you assist your Country Life neighbors by visiting them and sending gifts to them. Doing so is helpful to both of you as you’ll earn experience points in the process and your friends will be more likely to send you gifts in return.
Don’t be rude – While you’re playing Country Life a pop up window may appear to ask you to post to your Facebook profile to inform your friends of your gaming accomplishments. Use this sparingly as it can become quite annoying to your Facebook friends and they may hide you from their feed or unfriend you. If you want to disable auto posting rights for Country Life and other Facebook games check out our Facebook Guide.
Change web browsers – If your game is freezing and pages are loading slowly, you may want to try using another browser. Opera and Google Chrome are some great alternatives you may want to try.
Send invites correctly – Adding Country Life friends is important but you don’t want to send out invites to the game to people that don’t play. So make sure you include a message like “Country Life” or “Country Life add” when you send the invite.
Be a Country Life fan – Join all the Country Life groups and fan pages you can find. These are great places to add other Country Life players to increase your number of Country Life neighbors. You can post your profile to the walls of those fan pages and groups to have Country Life members add you as well.
