Should I Spend Donuts On Fancy Farms?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah Autumn…leaves are falling, that crispness in the air has arrived and there’s a brand new season of TV on!  Ok so it’s fall, and it still feels completely like summer (at least here in New Jersey) BUT…the last part is true.  There’s a whole new season of TV shows…and the Simpsons Season 28 starts this Sunday!  To celebrate the Season Premiere EA has launched a fun Episode Tie-In Mini Event in our games..something to gear us up for Sunday.  So bust open those wallets, because there’s a store full of premiums just waiting for you!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Fancy Farms to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Whole Foods inspired shop to your Springfield…


Building/Decoration: Fancy Farms
Donut Price: 70 Donuts
Earns: $300, 30xp/12hrs
Size: 6×9
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +400

Leaves stores October 4th

-Cool, unique looking building.  Will go nicely in Springfield Heights
-Animated when in use
-Comes with a short (1 part) questline for Lisa

-When questline is over the task for Lisa does not remain
-Pricey for what it is/does

Final Thought:
This is one of those toss up items.  Personally, I think you should save your donuts and grab another Beach Hideaway OR save your donuts for Halloween.  There’s no permanent character task with this one, so basically it’ll become just another building for Springfield….

Pass.  Freemium players should pass this one over, grab the hideaway…and save the rest of your donuts for Halloween.  Skip this one, you ain’t missing much.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you I’ll likely be passing on this one.  Just doesn’t excite me as a premium item….  Of course whatever you decide just remember this is limited time and will be leaving our games very soon (October 4th).  So if you’re thinking about grabbing it, do it very soon before it’s gone for good!

Here’s a look at the questline that come with it….

Farm to Table
Lisa starts

Lisa: Wow!  A Fancy Farms in our humble little Springfield.
Cecil: Would you like to sample our organic, vegan-friendly, grass-fed, GMO-hostile asparagus water?
Lisa: Cecil?  What are you doing here?
Cecil: Diversification, little girl.  You don’t put all your cage-free eggs into one hand-harvested flax read basket.  Here, try some wheat grass.
Lisa: Sounds delicious! It isn’t.
Make Lisa Browse Fancy Farms- 1hr, Earns $105, 26xp
Lisa: Camel milk, emu cheese, Salba seed ice cream…Even I’m not pretentious enough for this stuff.
Cecil: Just wait till you go through the checkout without a self-composting pomegranate skin bag.

  1. I found that Lindsey Naegle has a permanent 1 hour task here. 🙂

  2. I got it and have it inland on a lake, wish the beach hideaway could go on inland water.

  3. It was 94 today in St. Louis. Insane. Don’t they know its fall?

  4. Fancy Farms can go on the boardwalk tiles too.

  5. Grrr… why does EA do that?! I hate that they give a character a task at a building but then doesn’t let them keep that job, not only that they make a nice animation for the building that is never seen again. :-$

  6. Buildings is one thing I’m not short of these days, especially for Springfield Heights, which is stuffed to the brim right now.

    EA – if you want to sell more buildings that would go best in Springfield Heights, give us more land in Springfield Heights!!!

  7. agree with your take on this alissa! 😀 not sure that it’s worth 70 donuts either, but i liked the look of it, so i bought it.

  8. Looks too similar to some other buildings. If it were more unique looking, I might be more tempted.

  9. I got it and added it to the new section I built 🙂

  10. Fancy Farms [organic sugar cane] looks great next to the Old Simpson Farm [Grape vine orchard] which is placed adjacent to Cletus’s Farm [lots of goodies including a moonshine shack. yeah, baby. RevJRO1650
    PS: need more land….always! Hugs
