The Silo is a type of farm building purchasable from Robin at the Carpenter's Shop which stores hay from grass cut on the farm.


When The Player cuts grass on their farm with the scythe, there is a 50% chance that hay is automatically added to the silo. Each silo can store up to 240 hay, and the current amount stored can be checked by interacting with it. If the player owns multiple silos, it shows the combined total storage and capacity of all silos on The Farm.

Hay can also be purchased from Marnie's Ranch for Coin Icon50g and deposited into the silo by left-clicking.

Hay stored in the silo is accessible through the hay hoppers located inside Coops and Barns to be used for feeding their respective animals.


  • The silo is a good choice as a first building to be purchased. It takes fewer resources to build than other buildings, and allows a good stock of hay to be gathered before actually having to meet the needs of any animals.
  • Cutting grass with a sword or similar weapon does not provide hay: only a scythe will stock the silo.
