Farmers Faire 2017 – The Harvest Sky

Farmers Faire is here again this year starting from Wednesday, August 23 to Friday, September 8! This year’s theme is the Harvest Sky.

Upon logging in, you will be invited to accept a map, which will take you directly to Bywater in the Shire. Most of the festival occurs in Bywater and at Bywater (Mudbottom) Lake in the Shire. You can also get directly to the Farmers Faire by taking a Festival horse from the Michel Delving stables.

The Festival Announcer at Bywater (31.9S, 69.8W) will start you on A Tour of the Farmers Faire, which lets you see all the important locations for this festival. [3 Farmers Faire Tokens]

Remote Location Quests

There are two festival horses in Bywater that will immediately take you to these two remote locations.

Sandson’s Egg Scramble:
At Sandson’s Farm, Wymarc Grubb (Shire – 32.0S, 74.3W) will ask you to collect 5 white eggs that spawn randomly among the chickens. Occasionally, you can find a rare coloured, spotted, striped, or even golden egg. You get [10 Farmers Faire Tokens] for successfully completing the quest. The different types of eggs you collect will go into your inventory, where you can right-click them for different amounts of tokens. [Coloured: 2 Tokens, Spotted: 5 Tokens, Striped: 10 Tokens, Golden: 50]
Maggot’s Mushroom Hunt:
At Bamfurlong, Osbert Puddifoot (Shire – 33.7S, 64.6W) will ask you to collect 8 of Farmer Maggot’s mushrooms without being caught by his watching hounds, Fang, Grip, and Wolf. You get [10 Farmers Faire Tokens] for successfully completing the quest. Each mushroom you consume also gives you tokens. Even after you find 8 mushrooms, keep collecting as many as you can for even more tokens. Careful, as each different coloured mushroom also has a unique effect. [White Mushroom: 1 Token, Unique Mushrooms: 2 Tokens]
