- For food items prepared in the kitchen, see Cooking.
Crafting is the activity of creating a new item as specified by a crafting recipe. Similar to but separate from Cooking, each recipe lists a set of ingredient items that are consumed in each crafting action. The player knows eight crafting recipes at the start of the game, and must learn all others by gaining skills, developing friendships with townsfolk, and purchasing the rest from shops. Unlike cooked items, most (not all) crafted items are inedible.
The Crafting menu can be accessed by pausing the game (using ESC or E) and navigating to the tab with a hammer icon. The recipes the player knows will be saturated, while recipes with missing ingredients are faded grey.
By mousing over each item, a popup shows the materials that you will need. Ingredient names written in red text are not currently in the player's inventory.
To craft an item, click on the item's icon once you have all the required ingredients. The newly crafted item will appear beneath the player's cursor, and the player can then place it inside their inventory. The crafting screen may expand to multiple pages once the player acquires a larger selection of recipes.
Bombs are one time use items which cause an explosion, damaging certain objects within their radius. Bombs come in multiple sizes.
|Image||Name||Description||Ingredients||Recipe Source||Sell Price|

Fences block players, mobs, farm animals, and the spread of grass. The different fence types fences differ only in appearance and durability.
Fences (but not gates) will decay over time. When freshly placed, they'll drop the item when demolished. Otherwise they'll not drop an item, and will eventually become visibly damaged. Fences will disappear entirely if left in a damaged state for too long. A shortcut to replacing a damaged fence (other than hitting it with a tool and then replacing it) is to "use" the broken fence while a new fence is equipped in inventory. Your spouse may fix some broken-state fences daily before you leave the house.
Gates can be used to pass through fences, and closed to keep livestock (and other ground-pathing entities) contained.
Torches can be placed on a fence.
|Image||Name||Description||Lasts for||Ingredients||Recipe Source|
|Gate||Allows you to pass through a fence||100 days||Wood (10)||Starter|
|Wood Fence||Keeps grass and animals contained!||46-66 days||Wood (2)||Starter|
|Stone Fence||Lasts longer than a wood fence.||110-132 days||Stone (2)||Farming Level 2|
|Iron Fence (10)||Lasts longer than a stone fence.||240-264 days||Iron Bar (1)||Farming Level 4|
|Hardwood Fence||The most durable type of fence. Takes an average of a year before degrading.||558-562 days||Hardwood (1)||Farming Level 6|
Sprinklers water crops automatically every morning at 6 AM. Sprinklers cannot be used to automatically water a pet's water bowl.
|Sprinkler||Waters the 4 adjacent tiles every morning.||Copper Bar (1) Iron Bar (1)||Farming Level 2|
|Quality Sprinkler||Waters the 8 adjacent tiles every morning.||Iron Bar (1) Gold Bar (1) Refined Quartz (1)||Farming Level 6|
|Iridium Sprinkler||Waters the 24 adjacent tiles every morning.||Gold Bar (1) Iridium Bar (1) Battery Pack (1)||Farming Level 9|
This is the range of tiles each sprinkler can water:
Tip: Once the hoe has been upgraded to copper or better, it is easy to accidentally till the square where the sprinkler is located, which will remove the sprinkler from the ground. To avoid this, place your sprinkler on a flooring or pathway tile (such as the stone flooring).
v1.3 Beta Changes
Note: These changes are currently being tested in the v1.3 Beta branch of the game.
The final version of the game may or may not include the changes as described below.
|Sprinklers will not water Garden Pots.|
Artisan Equipment is used to make Artisan Goods. Each device makes a specific set of goods, and can craft only one item at a time. Increased production requires multiple devices.
As with furnaces and all other equipment, the artisan good must be collected from the device before it can be used again.

- main article: Fertilizer
Fertilizer is used for boosting production on your farm. It may retain water, increase chance of better quality crops, or speed crop growth. Some types of fertilizer must be used before planting a seed, and others may be used after planting a seed. Only one type of fertilizer can be used on each tilled plot at any time.
Note: Each craft of Speed-Gro or Deluxe Speed-Gro produces 5 fertilizer. Each craft of Quality Retaining Soil produces 2 fertilizer. The rest produce 1 each.

Crafted goods outside the farm
It is possible to place chests and other crafted items outside the farm. Chests are useful for storing gifts close to the homes of Villagers who prefer them or to allow additional storage when Mining, Fishing, or Foraging. Worm Bins can be placed near fishing spots, Furnaces can be placed at the entrance to The Mines, or entire sections of the Valley may be utilized for Keg or Preserves Jar processing.
