Valheim has a big open world and when you settle down somewhere you need to make sure you have enough food and resources to survive and thrive. Food is one of the challenging aspects of the game. You need to hunt for meat and plant seeds to harvest crops for food. In this quick guide, I will explain how to plant seeds in Valheim and harvest crops for food.
Valheim: How to Plant Seeds and Harvest Crops
One of the most common seeds in Valheim is the carrot. It is found in the Black Forest. There are a bunch of other seeds you can plant. To plant seeds in Valheim you need a cultivator. However, it takes a while before you can get your hands on the cultivator.
The first step is to build a forge which is done after getting a Surtling Core. If you don’t already know, a Surtling Core is dropped by a Surtling, a creature that spawns at pretty much every biome but check the swamp and Ashland as they have better spawn rates.
You can also loot dungeons to get the cores. The next step is to build a smelter and a charcoal kiln. Build the smelter to make the forge and the forge makes the bronze ingot cultivator. The following is the crafting recipe for the cultivator
- 5x Core Wood
- 5x Bronze ingots
You get the core wood from birch and pine trees in the Black Forest or the Meadows. Use the cultivator to cultivate the ground and use the seed to build the food. You can later use the crafted food to make better quality foods.
