There are many things you can do in this game. Stardew is quite the casual experience, but its cutesy exterior belies tons of depth. There’s farming of course, but there’s much more to do. You can grow all kinds of fruits and turn them into wine, which is a great way to make money. The farming sim offers a great many things to do, and ways to make bank.
One of the more rewarding, but labor-intensive ways, to make money is Truffle Oil. Truffles can sell raw for 625 G at the basic level, and for up to 1,250 G. But the real secret to making money is in the oil. However, to get the truffles you need to make the Truffle Oil in Stardew Valley, you will need to get pigs. These helpful pals can hunt down truffles, but they’re pretty pricey. You need to buy each pig for 16,000 G from the vendor.
Another thing you need to do is have a place to store the pigs. The base barn takes three days to build and two days to upgrade for each level. The basic barn cost 6,000 G, 350 Wood and 150 Stone. The Big Barn costs 12,000 G, 450 Wood and 250 Stone. You can purchase the Deluxe Barn from Robin at the Carpenter’s Shop for 25,000 G, 550 Wood and 300 Stone. After you get Deluxe Barn, which opens up 12 slots to store animals in. If you plan to make tons of cash with oils. pigs are a good choice.
A pig has a 0.02% chance on each frame to generate a truffle. You need to make sure each of the following prerequisites are met for truffles to spawn:
- pigs mature after 10 days and nly mature pigs will generate truffles
- the pig has been fed
- the pig has been let outside the barn
- it is not raining
- it is not winter
- there are available tiles outside with which to place a truffle
Once you are reliably spawning Truffles, it’s time to make Truffle Oil in Stardew Valley. Truffle Oil is made over the course of 6 in-game hours in the Oil Maker. Now you need to build the Oil Maker. Here are the items you need.
- 50 Slime
- 20 Hardwood
- One Gold bar
Yes, that means you will need to go down into the caves to get this done. So get out there and start farming Slime and Gold now, so that you have it ready once you have a need for it.
