Cliff is a traveler who ended up in Mineral Town through a series of mysterious events. He does not really talk to anyone in town, and prefers to spend a lot of his time in the Church.
His birthday is on Summer 6th. If you set your farmer’s birthday on the same day, his birthday will be on Summer 10th instead.
A quick way to earn LP with Cliff is to enter the church at least once daily. You will receive a bonus 2,500 LP every 10th day until you have entered for a total of 50 consecutive days.
But whether you need gift ideas or need to know his heart events, this guide offers a clear blueprint to help you befriend & woo Cliff quickly.
Cliff is not fond of socializing much around Mineral Town, so you can usually just find him keeping to himself at the Church.
Though after getting hired at Adge Winery, he spends some time working there before heading to the Church at the end of the day.
|Before working at the Winery||Inn (2nd floor), Church|
|After working at the Winery||Adge Winery, Inn (2nd floor), Church|
Cliff’s favorite gift is Curry Rice, which can be cooked in your kitchen after the house upgrade. Simply combine Curry Powder and Onigiri using the Pot.
The recipe for Curry Rice is obtained by cooking at least 5 dishes using Rice. Both ingredients can be bought from Jeff at the General Store. You can buy Curry Powder for 50 G and Onigiri for 100 G.

As you continue to raise your friendship points and heart level with Cliff, 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 Cliff, 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|
|Gray (1)||0 LP||Church||
||“Take your time.”|
|Gray (2)||5,000 LP||Church||
||“I’d like to help.” or “It’ll be good exercise.”|
|Purple||10,000 LP||Orchard (Adge Winery)||
||“Yo hoe, a farmer’s life for me!” or “I think it’s my calling.”|
|Blue||20,000 LP||Adge Winery||
||“He overthinks things.” or “You’re important to them.”|
|Green (Confession)||30,000 LP||Any location||
|Yellow||40,000 LP||Rose Plaza||
||“It’s nice to see you smile.”|
||“Let’s give them to the townspeople.”|
|Red (Marriage)||60,000 LP||Any location||
Remember that you can only view a heart event once you’ve successfully seen all the previous ones, so make sure you’ve checked every single one on the list!
Marrying Cliff, or even just being friends with him, will allow him to get employment at Adge Winery and stay in Mineral Town.
