Farm Maps

The selection area for maps at character creation.

There are five different Farm Maps to choose from in Stardew Valley. Each map offers a unique layout of the Farm, offering different benefits and favoring specific skills. Only one map can be chosen when starting a new game, and cannot be changed once selected.

The Standard Farm offers the most space to plant crops and raise animals. The other four farms lack farming area, but offer special perks in comparison:

The Standard Farm encourages Farming
The Riverland Farm encourages Fishing
The Forest Farm encourages Foraging
The Hill-top Farm encourages Mining
The Wilderness Farm encourages Combat

The interior of the farmhouse is decorated to match the theme of the chosen map. This includes furniture, wallpaper and flooring. The exterior of the house is the same regardless of map choice.

There is an abandoned building which can later be turned into your Greenhouse on all maps.
