Brandon is a sculptor and artist who lives at the Workshop with Gotts. He has a quiet demeanor and prefers to be alone.
His birthday is on Autumn 7th. If you set your farmer’s birthday on the same day, his birthday will be on Autumn 22nd instead.
It’s difficult to get him to open up at first before becoming friends.
But everything you need to court him and more can be found in this guide!
Brandon likes to keep to himself, so his usual locations are just around Mother’s Hill and the forest area behind Gotts’ Workshop.
|Sunny||Gotts’ Workshop, Mother’s Hill lake|
|Sundays||Forest, Mother’s Hill lake, Summit|
One of Brandon’s favorite gifts is Matsutake, which is a rare mushroom that can be foraged around town in Autumn. You can forage Matsutake in Carter’s mushroom garden or the area behind the lake mine. You can also trade for it at the Spring Derby in exchange for 10 medals.

As you continue to raise your friendship points and heart level with Brandon, you can unlock heart events that allow you to get to know him better.
During the cutscene, your farmer will have to respond with one dialogue option. Choosing the correct response will give you 3,000 LP with Brandon, otherwise you will lose -2,000 LP.
Below is a list of each heart event and the requirements needed to trigger them.
|Heart Event||Love Points Required||Location||Requirements||Correct Dialogue Option|
