We’ve known that Crafting Co-Op Farming Jobs would be coming to FarmVille for some time now, but we didn’t know when the feature would launch in full. Luckily, the wait is over, as Zynga has launched the feature, allowing you to join friends in Co-Op Farming jobs related to the three crafting buildings, growing crops that will see you earning bushels as a reward.
These new Crafting Jobs can be found by entering into the basic Co-Op Farming menu and then clicking on the new “Crafting Jobs” tab on the top (it should be marked with a large blue “New” symbol). There, you’ll find a few pages of jobs, all relating to your own Crafting building. That is, if you own a Spa, you’ll see jobs relating to every product you currently have available to produce in your spa.
If you have a level 3 bakery, as another example, you’ll see jobs for each product from levels 1, 2, and 3, but the jobs for levels 4 and 5 will be locked until you reach that high of a bakery level.
However, as these are still Co-Op Farming jobs at their core, and since all of your friends will not own the same kind of building, you can join in jobs related to other buildings, but only if your friends start them first. That is, I can join a job to produce a Winery’s Sweet Sake, but one of my friends that own the Winery will have to initiate it, before I can join.
As with other Co-Op Farming jobs, each job here has three ratings for completion – Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals. Depending on the crops required for the job, you could have anywhere from 4 days to upwards of 10 days to complete a job. The quicker you finish, the better the reward (in terms of both bonus experience points and coins), and if you can finish any job with a Gold Medal, you’ll earn the free bushels we spoke of earlier – with those bushels being bushels of the crops you just grew to complete the mission.
As a note, this feature is currently only available to a randomly selected group of users, and will be rolling out to all farmers in the coming days. Regardless of this fact, if your neighbors have started a new Crafting Job, you should be able to join it and receive the rewards where applicable, but you will not be able to start your own until the feature unlocks for you in full. Head over to FarmVille on Facebook to see if you have access to these Crafting Jobs.
