Get crafty! FarmVille crafting cottages sneak peek

Looks like all of that planting and harvesting in FarmVille will go toward something more than earning coins and XP. All that labor may soon go toward creating more useful in-game items. These images from FV fan herec0mesth3sun shows off four new crafting cottages: a Perfumery, Winery, Bakery and Fuel Workshop. Each cottage appears to have a specific function, respectively, making perform, wine, pastries and fuel.

The buildings aren't ready for purchase yet (and seem to be appearing in random games) but the message below hints that 'crop mastery is going to matter more than ever" when it comes to making use of these buildings.

In a leaked image of the upcoming Farmer's Market, we also learned that you'll be able to combine crops to create certain items -- and we have a feeling that will play heavily into these crafting cottages as well. We don't know if the pricing information on these cottages (1 million coins each) is accurate, and we also don't know when these will officially appear in the game.

If you're not familiar with the concept of 'crafting' in a game, it's an extremely popular activity that's been going on in massively multiplayer online games, such as World of Warcraft, for years. Based on that, we can only presume the same crafting fever will take hold when these cottages and the Farmer's Market officially plants stakes in FarmVille.

Do you think crafting will be a big step forward for FarmVille?
