Stardew Valley: Best farms to start with

We break down which Stardew Valley farm is right for you

Picking the best Stardew Valley farm is a daunting task, especially if you’re new to the hit farm-sim game. Some of them are more helpful than others, and those others are best left by the wayside unless you want a very specific kind of experience. While you can rarely go wrong with the basic starter farm, once you're familiar with how the game works, it's a good idea to branch out a bit and find new challenges that encourage you to think differently about the game.

Our Stardew Valley best farms guide explains which starting location is right for most occasions and what you get out of the others. We’ve listed them from worst to best.
