The Seed Maker is a piece of Refining Equipment that produces seeds from a harvested crop or one of four foraged items: Wild Horseradish, Spice Berry, Common Mushroom, or Winter Root. It takes 20 in-game minutes to process seeds.

A Seed Maker is the reward for completing the Dye Bundle on the Bulletin Board. The recipe is unlocked through the farming skill.

Seeds per Crop

The Seed Maker can produce 1-3 seeds of the same variety as the input crop (97.5% chance, average of 2 seeds), 1-4 Mixed Seeds (2% chance), or an Ancient Fruit seed (0.5% chance). Neither the number of seeds produced nor the likelihood of getting Mixed Seeds or Ancient Seeds are affected by luck.

The game initializes a pseudo-random number generator with calculated seed:

(#_days_played) + (unique_game_ID) / 2 + (X_tileLocation of object) + (Y_tileLocation of object) × 77 + (timeOfDay)

This determines the type and number of seeds produced. Daily luck and boosted luck have no effect on this outcome.

Seedless Crops

The Seed Maker does not produce seeds from:
