 1. HOW TO GET A FARM
To start farming you will need to rent a fence from an NPC using “Contribution points”. Contribution points are earned by completing quests. Contribution points can be seen in the top left along with your Skill points and Energy.
There are 4 types of fences you can rent:
 
CP
Slots
Rented from (click for location)

You can rent up to 10 farms in TOTAL (eg. you can’t have 10 small fences and 10 strong fences) and mix and match the different farms (eg. 4 small fences and 6 strong fences). But you can’t rent another of the same item whilst it is in your inventory. You must place the farm first or put it in your warehouse to be able to rent another.

You can also get the Shabby Fence as a quest reward (0 CP cost) which has 1 slot. This is useful if you have less than 10 farms. The Old Moon Fence requires Master Lv. 1 in Farming and is the same CP and slots as the strong fence, but is much smaller in size, which makes it more efficient to tend to and uses less fertilizer.
CONTRIBUTION POINTS EFFICIENCY:
If you aren’t using workers to tend to your farms, using smaller fences is far more efficient for your CP. If you have 30 contribution points, you will get a total of 40 slots by using 10 small fences, compared to 30 slots using 3 strong fences. You should aim to use as many small fences as you can and I only recommend using strong fences if you want to use a total of 100 contribution points for the maximum of 100 slots or if you are planning to use haystacks, mysterious or magical seeds.
Small Fences-  1.33 slots per CP
Plain Fences –  1.16 slots per CP
Strong Fences – 1.00 slots per CP
RENTING A FARM
To quickly find an NPC which will rent a fence to you, open your NPC locator (magnifying glass) to the left of your mini-map. In the search box type in “fence” to show all NPCs you have discovered which will rent a farm to you. There is also an NPC at the Norther Guard Camp who will teach you the basics of farming and give you a Weak Fence (1 crop).


Once you find an NPC, click the [Rent] button in the chat window, then “Confirm”.



The fence will go straight into your inventory. To return the farm and get your contribution points back, you need to go back to the same NPC and click “[Return]
2. HOW TO GET SEEDS
There are a few different ways you can get seeds:
Gathering – seeds can be gathered from bushes or thickets using your bare hands or a hoe.  It is completely random which seeds you will get so the method can be very slow and take up a lot of energy, but it is the only way of getting free seeds.
Seed Vendors – there are seed vendors at Loggia Farm, Olvia, Glish,  Heidel, Calpheon, Kasula Farm, Altinova, Sand Grain Bazaar and Valencia. They do have a poor selection of seeds and don’t offer higher quality seeds, but these are good starting points if you are looking to begin farming. You can use the NPC button in the top right (next to your mini-map) then search for “seed” to quickly find all the seed merchants you have discovered.
Market Place – the market place is where you want to go for your seeds if you’re looking to get top quality crops straight away. Sometimes you can’t find the seeds you want but you can often find cheaper seeds here than from the vendors.
I highly recommend buying your seeds from the market place where you can because with most crops it will increase your profits if you choose to sell the crops. If you’re looking for maximum yield, buying the seeds instead of breeding the seeds will also increase the amount of crops you are left with.
3. PLANTING & HARVESTING
To begin planting go up to your farm and press R to open installation mode. Click the seeds at the bottom and move them into place on your farm and click the confirm button. In the top left you can see “Garden Usage”, this indicates how many seeds we can fit on the farm. The window in the middle of the screen indicates the temperature, humidity, amount of water, and fertilizer the farm currently has. It also shows how long the seeds will take to grow. You can view the temperature, humidity and groundwater using the filters on your world map. 
It’s important to note that crops only grow whilst you are online!
The percentage on the right tells you the amount that the moisture will increase/drop every 5 minutes. You want the highest possible percentage as a negative percentage is how much it will drop. You will want to use water or waterways to increase the amount of groundwater. Groundwater is very important because if the moisture level reaches 0 then your plants will rot and you will only get 50% of your yield. Once a seed has been placed it will begin to grow. Exit the installation screen by pressing Esc and clicking yes. If you do not have a scarecrow or waterway on your farm you will need to tend to the crops more often by cutting and getting rid of insects. If your farm needs tending to, the icon on your map will turn red. Simply go to your crops and press R to tend to the crops.
To harvest, go to your crops and press R. You also have the choice of “Breeding”. If you choose to breed the crops you will have a chance to get more seeds back, as well as increasing the quality of the seeds.
HARVESTING
Once the crop is at 100% growth, you will get an average of 70 crops for white grade seeds, 50 for high quality and 30 for special quality seeds (if the seed takes 2 slots this is doubled). You also have a chance of extra yields which gives you an additional 1 – 5 crops. If your plant is at 200% growth it will be an old crop and only yield 50% of this.
BREEDING
Breeding the crops gives you 1 to 3 seeds of the same quality or higher. Even if the growth is at 200% or the crop is rotted, it will not effect how many seeds you can get. You can also get Fruits (used for alchemy) by breeding certain crops:
Fruit of Crimson Flame – obtained from Garlic, Hot Pepper, Pepper, Olives, Pumpkin

Fruit of Abundance – obtained from Sunflower, Strawberry, Garlic, Onion
Fruit of Nature – obtained from Carrot, Barley, Sweet Potato, Potato, Acacia, Dalvenia Alrea, Fig, Freekeh, Leccinum, Nolia, Nutmeg, Pie Mushroom, Purple Mushroom, Penestraria, Star Anise, Teff
Fruit of the Sun – obtained from Corn, Wheat, Tomato, Paprika
Fruit of Magic Power – obtained from Emperor Mushroom, Fortuneteller Mushroom, Hump Mushroom, Tiger Mushroom Fruit of Enchantment – obtained from Dry Mane Grass, Fire Flake Flower, Silk Honey Grass, Silver Azaleah, Sunrise Herb Fruit of Perfection – obtained from Arrow Mushroom, Bluffer Mushroom, Cloud Mushroom, Fog Mushroom
4. SCARECROWS & WATERWAY
Scarecrows and Waterways are used to decrease the amount of time you need to spend tending to your farm and increase the quality of your crops. Scarecrows reduce the chance of bird attacks, while waterways decrease the amount of water consumption. If your farm runs out of water your crops will either be lower quality or you will get far less crops than usual from the harvest. Waterways will make the natural groundwater last longer, but if you water your plants when you first plant them you shouldn’t need to come back to tend them for a much longer time. To craft these items for your farm you will need a woodworking workshop. Once these items are placed on your farm they will take up a slot each so you will not be able to plant as many seeds but you won’t have to tend to them as often.


Personally, I don’t use scarecrows or waterways as I feel they take up too much space and are only efficient on Strong Fences. The damage from bird attacks is very minor and waterways are only really required in dry areas such as the desert. 
TENDING TO YOUR FARM
Before I go into tending to your farm more, I would like to highlight the 2 main reasons for farming and how they play a role in tending to your farms.
Maximum produce 
If you are looking to collect materials for profit or production. I highly recommend using fertilizer, water and workers to tend to your farm. This will ensure that the growth time is as low as possible but you will not get any shards or farming XP.
Leveling Life Skill, Hard/Sharp shards, other loot
If you’re looking for the loot from pruning/removing insects, such as weeds, spirit’s leaf, shards, monk’s branch, etc. Then you will want to use no workers and tend to the farm as often as possible. You won’t want to use fertilizer or water (which will decrease your yields) but you will be able to tend to them more and level your farming quicker.
REMOVING INSECTS/PRUNING
If your farm needs tending to due to insects or pruning, the farming icon on your world map will turn red to indicate this. Insects and pruning will double the amount of time it takes for your crop to grow if it is left untreated but it does not effect the yield and you can actually leave it if you don’t mind the extra time it takes.  You can use workers to remove insects or prune for you but you will not get any loot. Possible loot from removing insects is:
1 – 10 weeds
Caterpillar
Spirit’s Leaf
Female Kermes
Hard Black Crystal Shard
Sharp Black Crystal Shard
Possible loot from pruning is:
1 – 10 weeds
Twig
Monk’s Branch
Hard Black Crystal Shard
Sharp Black Crystal Shard
5. USING WORKERS
You can use your workers to tend to your farms while you are busy. They will prune weeds and remove bugs until they run out of action points but you can only have one worker on each farm at a time.

Workers will not harvest/breed seeds for you and you will not get any farming XP or Sharp/Hard shards. Farm workers also use a lot of beer very quickly!

To set up your workers so that they tend to your farm, left click on the farm icon in the top right, then click the “list” button next to your farm. You can then select which worker you would like to send to your farm.
As you can see in the screenshot above, workers do not have to have to be connected to the nearby nodes. You can use any worker which is available but the worker will have to travel from the where they are. The workers will store items all items they obtained by tending, at the warehouse. Giant workers are the best workers to use for tending to your farm, this is because Giant workers have more action points and will not need to be fed as often. They will usually be able to make it all the way through the growth of the plant without needing to be fed.

Personally, I recommend pruning the farms yourself unless you have a lot of farms to tend to or not enough time to keep pruning them manually. Another option is to use workers until the crops are ~60% only. Doing this will let the crops grow quickly but the crops will usually need to be pruned when you harvest/breed them and you can get some sharp/hard shards this way as well. 
6. MYSTERIOUS & MAGICAL SEEDS – ADVANCED
Mysterious Seeds can be obtained by harvesting, breeding, pruning or killing pests on a Special/Magical seed. Mysterious seeds can then be processed with Processing (L) > Shaking, with a special seed/hypha to create Mysterious seeds.

For example, you can use a Mysterious Seed and shake it with a Special Strawberry Seed, to create a Mysterious Strawberry Seed.

This seed can then be placed on your farm but you must be Artisan 1 in farming to tend to the Mysterious seed, or harvest/breed it. Mysterious Seeds will take up 5 slots on a farm and highly increase the yield when harvesting, and also increase the amount of fruit when breeding, but it is not possible to obain more seeds when breeding and you will quickly run out of them. Another downside to using Mysterious Seeds is that you will  not obtain byproducts when breeding them, and they do not give any extra chances of sharp/hard shards or additional farming EXP when pruning, meaning that if you want these it’s better for you to plant the regular seeds. You cannot sell Mysterious Seeds on the marketplace, and when processing them, they are unable to proc.

Magical Seeds can be obtaned when breeding Special seeds, once you reach Artisan 1 or higher in farming. These seeds also take up 5 slots on a farm, but unlike Mysterious seeds, you can obtain more magical seeds when you breed a magical seed, as well as byproducts and fruits.

Magical seeds should be used to make profit and you should be breeding them to get high amounts of fruit. The byproducts you receive can also be exchanged for T9 horse materials which will heavily increase your profits.
7. POWERLEVELING FARMING (TO ARTISAN 1)
It’s possible to quickly level your farming all the way to Artisan 1 in just a few days. This unlocks the Magical seeds and heavily increases the profit you will make from farming. You will need to rent as many farms as possible, and then place them outside the south of Heidel along the river (see image below). Ideally you will want to get x10 of the Strong Fences so you have the maximum amount of crops you can plant. The less farms you have the longer it will take to reach Artisan 1.
You will notice that the Humidity and Temperature in Heidel is not suitable for these crops. This means you will need to prune and kill pests much more often. Tend to the farms as often as possible then breed the seeds once they are 200% and repeat. You may run out of energy if you have all 10 Strong Fences, so a Kamaslyvia Blessing and using a bed for extra energy will be very useful. It’s not necessary and I wouldn’t waste silver on getting all the life skill buffs, but you should use Healthy Sute TeaSilver Embroidered Farmer’s Clothes and Elixir of Flowing Time to boost your EXP gains. Other life skill EXP buffs are listed below:
Pets – 0 to 35%
[Villa] Turning Gates (90 min) – 10% and Energy Recovery +1
Costume – 10%
Verdure Draught – 20%
Seafood Cron Meal  – 10%
Whale Meat Salad – 10%
GM Blessing – 10% and Energy Recovery +1
Guild Life Skill EXP buffs – 10%
