Grass Seedlings are “crops” that you can purchase from Jeff at the General Store. You can plant these in your field, and once they’re planted, they’ll immediately turn into a plot of grass that will spread and behave just like wild grass.

Wild grass can be harvested using the Sickle. Harvesting the grass turns it into Fodder, which is used to feed your barn animals.

Planting Grass Seedlings

Grass Seedlings can be bought individually from Jeff at the General Store. They each cost 500 G, so you’ll need some money for the Grass Seedlings first.

Once you have them, they’re all ready to plant.

Just choose an empty spot on the field (not tilled) and place the seedling down. This will plant the grass into your field.

Over time, the grass will spread to the adjacent tiles in your field and will multiply. If you don’t place fencing to contain the grass, it will continue to grow in all directions until the farm runs out of space.

So be sure to put down some fencing to keep your grass fields under control.

How To Harvest Fodder

When it’s time to harvest Fodder, simply equip the Sickle and use it on any actively growing grass. This will automatically add Fodder to your inventory.

Just make sure to leave a few blades of grass behind so it can regrow, that way you don’t have to buy more Grass Seedlings.

How To Use & Store Fodder

Fodder is an important part of farm life in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town.

It feeds your barn animals, keeps them happy, and keeps them producing animal goods.

Fodder can be placed in the barn’s feeding bins or stored in the Silo. Or if you release the animals outside, they’ll directly eat the grass that’s growing in the field.

Tip: To store excess Fodder, hold it in your hands and select the Silo next to the barn to deposit it. The Silo can hold up to 999 pieces of Fodder.

Or if you need to take out some Fodder to feed your barn animals, interact with the silo chute or the barn dispenser next to the feeding area.
