Hay Day can be a very time consuming game for many of us, it’s a lot of chores we need to handle as a Hay Day farmer, crops needs to be harvest, cows needing milking and pies needs to be made. It’s easy to loose yourself in the game and spend to much time, hopefully with this guide I will teach you a few tricks you can use in Hay Day that will make you a much more efficient player with more coins and higher levels. This guide isn’t rocket science or anything but I bet most players will find something useful Hay Day trick that they can apply to their farm, let’s get started right away!
Find Unlocked Tool boxes
This is a basic trick but it’s still a good one, now and then you will find tool boxes laying around your farm and others, these boxes can contain a number of things including building materials, coins and even diamonds. Some of the boxes will be locked (costing 3 diamonds to unlock) and some will be free to open, my advice is to only open the once that are free to open and to never spend any diamonds opening Tool boxes, it’s just a waste of diamonds. If you find a box that cost to unlock, just click the red cross in the corner and close the window, the box will then disappear and there’s now a chance for a new box to spawn in the farm.
Visiting your friends farm or people’s farms in the newspaper can be a way of finding new boxes, if you can’t find a box on one farm, just move ontop the next farm, and the next and the next..
Buy Low – sell high & Earn gold in Hay day
A simple but efficient trick to earn some extra gold is to browse the newspaper for good deals, find stuff that you can resell for a higher price, a simple method of buy low sell high.
When you check the newspaper there’s only a limited amount of products to buy, but there is a way to fast and easy get a updated newspaper with new deals, you simple press the off button on your device (iphone or ipad, haven’t tested this on a android device) just tap the off button so it goes into sleep mode, then just start the ipad/iphone again, you’ll then see a loading screen for Hay Day and your newspaper should be filled with new deals. This is a neat little trick to find either items to resell or resources and building material to upgrade your building. You still need to act fast if you want to buy the best deals, also a portion of luck is always nice to have!
Get more building materials & tools
Here’s a simple way of getting more building materials, make sure your silo has plenty of room because your going to need that space. When you harvest your crops in Hay Day there’s always a chance of building materials or tools to be dropped, we’re going to use this to our advantage in this simple method. We’re going to make the fastest growing crop in order to get as much tools and materials as possible, we’ll grow wheat because it’s the fastest one around, only takes 2,5 minutes to grow. Keep growing wheat on your farm and harvest away, you’ll soon find some great stuff. I recommend that you sell your wheat really low so that you have room for new wheat in your silo, so sell it for 1 gold for 10 wheat is what I recommend, that way it will sell fast and you’ll have plenty of room to harvest some more.
Make Blackberry and double your gold
Next up is a pricey and time consuming way of getting gold, and that is to create Blackberry bushes. These bushes cost 530 gold to make and they take quite some time before you can harvest them, but the good part is that you don’t have to do anything during the waiting period, just create them and then wait to harvest. For each bush you’ll get 13 berries, that means you will double your gold that you invested, you invest 530 gold and you get over 1000 gold for all the berries on one bush. You make around 500 gold profit per bush (including the price for the axe the chop it down when the bush is dead). A very nice profit for not doing anything, this can be done for all trees and bushes of course, but the Blackberries will give you the most profit of them all.
Eventually you’ll run out of space on your farm for your bushes, that’s the biggest downfall for this method, but there’s plenty of space to fill your farm with bushes even if you haven’t expanded your farm yet. Just buy axes when you can and chop down those dead bushes when you can, and then just create new bushes.
In order to create Blackberries you need to be level 26, more info about the berries here.
