Graveyard Keeper: How To Start Farming



You may think that a game about managing a Graveyard might not have much to do with farming, and you’d mostly be right. Farming isn’t as complicated as in Stardew Valley, but it still plays a role in helping you make money.

In order to start farming your own crops in Graveyard Keeper, players need to get permission to use the Kitchen Garden from Horadric, the innkeeper at the The Dead Horse in the Village. He’s also one of the first NPCs players interact with, so finding him shouldn’t be too hard.

Talk to him about the garden and he will give you permission to use it, while at the same time starting a quest with the Merchant NPC. Now the Kitchen Garden is yours to make use of, and once you get your hands on some seeds, you can start growing right away.

All you have to do is simply walk up to the Kitchen Garden’s Blueprint table, located to the south-east of your house, and choose the Empty Garden Bed option and place it across as large an area as you need. These Garden Beds can then be used to plant seeds once you walk over to them. Keep in mind that Crops don’t need to be watered in Graveyard Keeper, so all you need to do is wait a few days and then just harvest them.

Over time, you can unlock additional items from the Skill Tree for your garden such as the Compost Heap, which is used to make Fertilizer, but can actually prove useful at raising your Graveyard Rating as well.

All you need to do is provide the Compost Heap with Crop Waste, which is a byproduct of growing Crops, and over time it will produce Peat.
