FarmVille Summer Goals: Everything you need to know

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...
In a surprise update this evening, Zynga has announced the launch of a new trio of goals in FarmVille dealing with summer! These goals are on a fairly slow rollout, so don't panic if you don't have these in your game already. All of these goals require you to be at least level six to receive. Plus, they'll only be available for a limited time: until August 1, to be specific. Let's get started on a guide to help you finish them fast!

Summer Picnic:

Get 6 Picnic Baskets
Buy a BBQ Grill
Harvest 50 Strawberries

You'll need to ask your friends for the Picnic Baskets, but can manually purchase your own BBQ Grill for just 1,000 coins (it's a permanently available item in the store, so feel free to delete it afterwards; you can always get another one if you want it at a later date, but don't want to keep it now). Your prizes for finishing this first goal are 100 XP, 1,000 coins and a Dive Tower (a pool item with a diving board).

Cool It!

Get 6 Electric Fans
Harvest 100 Habanero Chilis
Buy 1 Water Pump

So, this goal is basically the same as the first. Just ask your friends for the Electric Fans, buy a Water Pump for 800 coins, and then plant some Habanero Chilis. Do this last step fast, as the Chilis will only be available to plant for the next nine days. For finishing off this goal, you'll receive something that's very exciting: an orange and yellow Beach Ball Ram, along with 200 XP and 2,500 coins.

The Turtle Derby

Get 8 Racing Stripes
Harvest 100 Spinach
Buy 2 Trees

It doesn't look like it matters as to which kinds of trees you need to plant, so long as you plant two of them on your farm. Meanwhile, you'll need to ask your friends to send you the eight required Racing Stripes. For finishing this final Summer goal, you'll receive 500 XP, 5,000 coins and a Mystery Box containing one of the six newly released Racing Turtles we told you about earlier this evening. Unfortunately, the color you'll receive is random, but remember, should you require a specific color of the six, each turtle can be purchased from the store for 14 Farm Cash.

While it doesn't look like the Turtles are ready to head off to the race track just yet, at least we've all been (more or less) guaranteed a Racing Turtle should we go through with these goals. We'll make sure to give you more details about these Racing Turtles as we have them, so keep checking back.

What do you think of the Summer Goals in FarmVille? Do you already have them in your game? Which color of Racing Turtle are you hoping to end up with? Let us know in the comments.
