Farm Buildings in Crusader



Hunter's Post
This is the most primitive way to gather food. It's manned by a plucky archer, who looks like Robin Hood's cousin, and his faithful dog. In a pinch the two of them will even help out in defense of the castle, by attacking wolves and enemy soldiers. They don't take much of a beating, but are easily replenished if you have enough peasants available.

Dairy Farm
These farms are a great opportunity to add to your food production, as they can be placed on relatively poor soil, i.e. the darker grass. The cows will give you cheese, and leather for the tanner to make armour. However, in the latter case, your production will drop. They take a little while to get up to speed, but should provide a steady source of food later on, unless mad cow disease strikes.

Apple Orchard
Easiest of the farms, these pretty looking rows of trees need to be placed on better soil, i.e. the deep green stuff. The trees grow quickly and bear fruit several times a year. They require the least resources to be built and are a fairly safe form of crop...unless witches happen to be abroad.

Wheat Farm
Wheat farms are needed if you want to sustain large populations. It takes a while for them to get going, but once they do you have a steady source of wheat. These too need to be placed on prime soil. As with all farms, you have to take into account that the longer the walk to the granary/storage area, the less effective production a farm has. Wheat farms are expensive and prone to grain blight and rabbits.

Hop Farm
A different kind of farm, the hop farm is used not for food but...for drink. The hops will be taken to the brewer who turns it into that nectar of the gods known as ale. Your people will love you for it.
