FarmVille English Countryside: Using the Pub
While most FarmVille farmers may be used to having a choice in their crafting buildings, between Bakeries, Wineries, and Spas, in the English Countryside, you have but one choice - the Pub. Luckily, this building is readily available to purchase for farmers when they arrive in the English Countryside, and it costs you just 100,000 coins to do so.
The Pub takes up a fairly large footprint, if you're concerned about saving space, and functions as other Crafting Buildings have in the past. That is, it starts as a 1-Star Pub, with only two recipes available to craft, but can be expanded all the way up to a 5-Star Pub by leveling up the recipes that you currently have access to with Bushels.
To get you started, we've made a list of the recipes you can expect to create and master for the first two levels of the Pub, as Levels 3-5 are unknown as of this writing. Meet us behind the break to see what's in store for you once you purchase a Pub for your second farm.
As we said, the Pub starts at level 1, and functions just as you'd expect. While planting and harvesting the 15 new English Countryside crops (check out our full guide for details on each crop), you'll receive Bushels, with those bushels going to create various goods. For Level 1, you'll have just two recipes available to you:
Oliviaberry Beer: 3 Hops Bushels and 5 Red Currant Bushels
Duke's Stout: 4 Hops Bushels and 4 Barley Bushels
These recipes will level up through "experience points" as you continually craft them, or as your friends purchase the units that you craft. You'll have just two crafting tables to work with at the start, but you'll only need to level up recipes six times (either one recipe six times, or a combination of the two) in order to be eligible to upgrade your Pub to the next level, unlocking another table and more recipes to craft.
For Level 2, you'll unlock two additional recipes, bringing your Pub cookbook to four recipes total. You'll receive the following:
Barley Crumpets: 3 English Rose Bushels, 2 English Pea Bushels, 2 Barley Bushels
Floral Scones: 2 Bluebell Bushels, 3 English Rose Bushels, 2 Cornflower Bushels
As you sell Goods to friends, you'll earn 80% of the purchase price as your profit. This is the quickest way to level up recipes (that is, actually selling the Goods you produce), so if you're looking to quickly earn those exclusive mastery signs for mastering these Goods, make sure to remind your friends to buy everything you're selling.
All English-specific features aside, you'll be able to use the Pub just as you would the Crafting Building back on your own farm. You can use the building to purchase Goods, even if those Goods are from the Home Farm's crops, and you can use the building to turn in those Goods for fuel. As you have one overall Fuel level for both Farms, it doesn't really matter where you turn in these Goods, as you'll receive the same amount of Fuel either way.
While this sounds good and all, remember, if you want to create these Crafting Recipes, you'll need to accept the fact that all activity will be suspended in your Home Farm while you work in England due to the current "Pause" feature. If you're ok with that, then craft away!
