Preserves Jar vs. Keg
The Preserves Jar increases the profit of a crop using the following equation: (2 × Base Crop Value + 50), while the Keg multiplies the base value of Fruits by 3, and most Vegetables by 2.25. Because of this, low-value high-yield crops like Corn or Tomatoes are more valuable in the preserves jar. The keg, on the other hand, favors crops with a much higher base value, such as Ancient Fruit or Melons.
Below is a list of crops that are more beneficial to be put in the keg, along with their raw base price. Boldfaced items have a base price above 200g.
It should be noted that these calculations only involve the value gained in terms of max profit; if looking at profit per day based on the time required, it is always more beneficial to use a preserves jar, on the highest value item possible (2 days to multiply value by 2×).

Inside Farm Buildings
While kegs can be placed outside, many players store them in farm buildings. A Shed, optimally filled with kegs, holds 67 of them, while occupying only 21 tiles of land. A Barn, however, is cheaper, and holds 90 kegs on 28 tiles of land. The Deluxe Barn increases building costs considerably, but has so far been shown to be able to fit 136 kegs on the same land space as the initial Barn. Coops are cheaper, but smaller, and less advantageous.

Processing time calculates differently while sleeping than while awake. 1 hour = 60 minutes when awake but = 100 minutes when sleeping. So if you sleep a whole day, the machine would process 2400 minutes (100 × 24). If you work from 6:00AM till 12:00AM and sleep 6 hours, the machine will process 1680 minutes a day (60 × 18 + 100 × 6). If you work from 6:00AM till 2:00AM and faint 4 hours, the machine will process 1600 mins a day (60 × 20 + 100 × 4).
