so i typically do 11 by 11 single farmer crops but every game i start the farmers cant even get half of it harvested before the frost kills it, 10 by 10 is a hit or miss good morale and tools they sometimes full harvest. so whats the best size crop for this mod? or am i just crazy? also tips on NOT starving would be mice cause this farm stuff is not helping lol
For food at the beginning you’ll want to gather blueberries, roots, and mushrooms (Harvest Wild Food in the Removal Menu). You get a surprising amount of food that way, especially if you keep some of the forest or bog around your village. Those foods cover 3 of the 4 food groups. To get protein you could use 1-2 fishermen or you could hunt for venison. Smoking the fish and meat helps you get more of it.
If you look around the forums I think you can find some recommendations about crop field sizes. But yes, smaller. I’m micromanaging one 9×15 field for a new village with 30 people. I let 2 workers plant it, then use 5 or 6 to harvest it. In the winter I assign them to something else.
