Main article: Animals

Pigs mature after 10 days. The Pig will dig up Truffles and leave them on the ground, which sell for a base of Gold.png625g. You do not need to stay on the farm screen for them to produce truffles.

A pig's chance of creating produce is governed by the rules listed in the Produce section of Animal Care with three exceptions:

  1. They must be let outside to create their produce.
  2. They cannot produce truffles in Winter or Rain.
  3. They must be placed in a natural pasture area. Pathing (flooring, gravel, etc.) reduces/eliminates the area where truffles can be produced.
  4. They have a chance of digging up multiple truffles, which is a percent chance equal to Animal Friendship/1500. At max friendship this means they have a 66% chance of creating an additional truffle. Multiple truffles can be made until the animal fails this check, so under optimal conditions a pig will produce an average of three truffles.

Pigs, like all other animals except rabbits, have a low chance to reproduce and can produce baby pigs. The more animals there are inside the same barn, the higher the chance an animal will give birth.

Truffles benefit from professions such as Gatherer, allowing for double harvest, as well as Botanist, making all Truffles iridium quality. However, Truffles do not benefit from the Rancher profession.

Truffles not gathered on the 28th day of a season disappear on the following morning, the 1st day of the new season.
