All cozy life sims require these as the absolute essentials – Farming, Fishing, Mining, and Cooking. But what do these all lead back to? The ability to use Crafting to improve your gear and make life on the land a little easier. Without these sim fundamentals, well it wouldn’t be a cozy game.
Whilst there are many life sim releases throughout the year, each houses its own unique story and style for players to dive into and hand over countless hours of their life to Dev’s work. As stressful as life is a lot of the time, breaking up the Groundhog Day of life can be done simply by living through another person’s every day. Whilst we cannot see what it is like to live as those we look up to, we can live a simpler more fulfilling life inside this simulator of Fae Farm.
If you are looking for the next life sim to play, relax, and blissfully forget the real world for a moment, Fae Farm is the place to visit. Every life sim has the fundamentals but here is a guide about one of the main core gameplay mechanics you will find in life on the farm. This is Vincent’s guide on how to craft in Fae Farm.

Fae Farm Crafting Guide
For those just getting started in Fae Farm you will want to know the key locations where crafting is done in this life sim. These are inside your Homestead – specifically inside your Field or Home itself. Crafting works more like Build Mode in Sims in that you are able to construct and add new builds, structures, and furniture inside your Homestead based on whatever you are looking to complete or upgrade your overall design.
Your Farm/Field itself can be altered so long as you are standing on the actual Field where you can plant, harvest, or remove crops. This area can have items added through the Construction Screen that offers a grid for you to find and place down structures anywhere within appropriate means of the Field.
How to Place Items in Fae Farm
Inside the Home, you can use the same Construction Screen tailored toward Indoor structures such as Furniture, Wallpaper, and general Decor. To open this Build Mode on either your Field or inside your Home, you will need to use ‘C‘ (PC) or down on d-pad (Nintendo Switch). By pressing this interaction button again, you will open the Catalogue to check out what is available for the Outdoor or Indoor structures.
Use ‘R’/’T’ (PC) or ‘L’/’R’ (Nintendo Switch) to filter through the Tabs when searching for a specific item. Keep in mind that everything requires materials in order to be made and placed down. When you have the correct materials, use the left-mouse button (‘LMB’ on PC) or ‘A’ (Nintendo Switch) to pick up the item, choose its placement, and ‘LMB‘ or ‘A‘ to confirm your choice and the placement of the item.
How to Find Crafting Recipes
As with all life sims, not everything in the game is made readily available for you from the get-go. Because of this, you will need to know what to do to expand on your Field and improve the overall coziness of your Home to truly make it your own.
You can find recipes by finding Recipe Scrolls, Foraging and Mining, completing Quests, and leveling up your Skills. Scrolls are found inside Azoria, whilst other Recipes can be gained by expanding your knowledge through finding new materials and upgrading your Skills such as Fishing and Mining.
