Farmer is a harvesting job which mostly concerns crops. ALL crops. My husband only likes wheat, but know that there are many others in our World.
The rest of us farmers also have the chance to pick fruits from certain trees, but we won't be able to grow them ourselves.
When a resource reaches maturity, you can collect its seeds or fruit. The resource is not destroyed, but it will regress. If you leave it alone, new seeds or fruits will grow from it.
You can plant the seeds you get from a resource to grow more of it. You have to be careful though, because not all seeds are suitable for all soils. As far as the farming profession is concerned, you can't go far wrong if you head for the fields: all sorts of grains seem to like it there!
As well as harvesting, there is another thing you can do with crop families. You can cut them to get the plant itself. Be careful though, cutting a resource is an irreversible action and once you've done it, the plant is destroyed and won't grow back.
If you go to a millstone you'll be able to grind your grains into flour. Then bakers from all over Amakna will snatch it out of your hands. I'd advise you to get a few good business relationships going, if you don't want to end up ground to a pulp yourself!
Before patch 1.0 on March 28, 2012 Scythes were needed to harvest goods. Sometime before September 2014 Farming had to be learned from a Clan Member. |}
