Age of Empires 4 Resources Farm

There are a total of 4 resources in Age of Empires 4 i.e., Food, Gold, Wood, and Stone. Below, we have provided a detailed overview of all the resources and farming them efficiently:


When it comes to gathering food, not a whole lot has changed in the Age of Empires 4. There are quite a lot of methods of getting food in the game. These include building farms near a Mill, harvesting bushes, hunting animals, and fishing.


Wood is one of the initial resources that the player is required to get during the tutorial. All that the player needs to do is to assign a villager to a tree. One thing that the player can do is to build a Lumberjack right next to a few trees to lessen the distance that the villager needs to travel.


Stone is another significant resource that is needed during the mid-to-late game. To farm it effectively, all that is needed to do is to build a Stone Mine and let a villager mine it.


Gold is an incredibly rare resource in the game. Gold Deposits are scattered all around the area which is why it is a good idea to build structures like Fortresses, Towers, etc. right next to these Gold Deposits. As for collecting it, any villager can do so. Gold in the game is needed for research purposes, etc.
