Use Keys to Upgrade Production Capacity

The first tip that I would like to share is that you should spend your first 50-60 free keys in upgrading production capacity. For example, if you are making a blackberry pie or a mint chip cookie in your pastry shop then it’s better than you upgrade the number of items that can be produced at once. This can only be done using keys so make sure you spend them wisely. The good thing is that once you upgraded the production count from one to two then it applies for all the items inside that building in your farm.

Increasing the overall production count will not only save time for baking a cake or producing milk but also enable you to stack up raw materials for making more complicated products like Strawberry Sundae. While there are lots of buildings inside Farmville 2 Country Escape I personally recommend upgrading your dairy firm and windmill. There is no need to upgrade the capacity to more than 3 for any building.

Store peach yogurt to make the most money

In Farmville 2 Country Escape there are lots of food items that you can craft and sell it on the farm board for some coins. Having played this game for quite some time now I can certainly guarantee that you will make the most money by selling peach yogurt consistently. In order to keep a constant flow of peach yogurt there are a few steps that you need to take.

Peach Yogurt  Recipe in FarmVille 2

First and foremost you must have realized that ripping peaches from tree takes almost 4 hours so it’s best that you add another peach tree to stock up on your raw materials. On the other hand you need to stack up on your carrots and feed the goat and collect goat cheese at the diary. These are the two raw materials required to make peach yogurt and once you have stacked enough keep making as many as you want. If you cannot sell all of them on the farm board then you can certainly sell to others players online.

Pappy’s Pond Overnight

FarmVille 2 Pappy's Pond rewards

Sending your farm hands to grandma’s glade is easy and happens relatively quicker. However, completing their expedition at Pappy’s pond takes 8 hours. Instead of wasting your entire day waiting for them try to send your farm hands right before going off to sleep so that you can collect your rewards in the morning. While 8 is a really long time here are some of the reasons why you should consider doing this every night:

  • 600 XP after completing fishing at Pappy’s pond
  • Chance to win Trout and Bass that can be used to cook Pan-Seared Trout and & Staffed Bass respectively. Both can be sold to earn quite a few coins.
  • You get the chance to win a lock that can be used to increase storage space at the farm barn.
  • When you wake up your offers are just sitting there to collect.

Double Crops Strategy

In oFarmville 2 Country Escape farm layoutrder to increase your levels and expand your farm you need a steady supply of raw crops like wheat, tomato, potato etc. consistently. While many missions require you to have only one wheat or strawberry field I personally think that you need to build two of them for each variant except for potato and wool (since they are quite expensive and sometimes unnecessary).


Doubling your farm production will ensure that you are ready to store more or each type for making premium items without running out of stock. While the first field always require coin, the second field for each type may either require coin or a few keys. Stacking up the elementary products will also help you build a few preliminary items like flour, biscuit etc. every time you open the game.

Buy Things from Others

Farmville 2 Country Escape allows you to buy various livestock and other recipes from different players across the community. While you may think that their selling price is a bit high, remember that you are making an investment here in order to grow your farm and make even more money.

You can stack up different ingredients for your item and finally sell the finished product on the board to make even more money. I tend to purchase vital items like Blackberry, Chives and butter.

  2. Need to sell apple pie for step 1 of home sweet home quest — but it doesn’t even show up on market board to sell. Any suggestions??

    • Rahul Ghosh says:

      Use coins to skip items on the farm board.

      • Natasha says:

        I have same problem re selling the apple pie in the home sweet home quest. Been skipping items on farm board but apple pie never comes up for me to sell so can’t complete quest so far. Frustrating.

      • I can’t locate my pie either to sell. However, I don’t see an option to pay to get past it?

        • Rahul Ghosh says:

          A couple of users reported the same problem but now I will contact Zynga and try to come up with an answer directly from them. Will let you all know.

  3. i cant sell the apple poe for step 1 quest , what do i do ??

  4. Holly Libby says:

    I have the same issue! I cannot sell my apple pie!

  5. Add me to the list of players unable to sell my Apple Pie on the Farm board.

  6. I can’t sell the apple pie either and I don’t have an option to skip. Very frustrating zynga! This is what makes ppl uninstall ur games!!! :(

  7. I can’t figure out how to upgrade my buildings using keys. Usually if you would like to use a key for something, such as speeding a crop, a button appears when you click on the thing/crop. In this case, clicking on the building brings up the menu of items to build. going to the store just allows me to purchase a second building of the same type for 20 keys. It seems like it should be really obvious, but I can’t find out how to do it. Could you please explain how to upgrade the buildings using keys?

  8. Hi there. I also cannot sell my apple pie. It NEVER shows up. What do I do???

  9. I also can’t sell the apple pie. I made 6 of them and can’t figure out how to sell them or skip over it. I’m on an S4, idk if that makes a difference? Any advice?
