FarmVille Collections Update: Everything you need to know

FarmVille Collections Update
You forgot to turn in your old Collections, didn't you? Well, it's too late now, as Zynga is rolling out the brand new FarmVille Collections system as of this writing. It's a complete overhaul that will change not only how you interact with Collections, but what you'll get out of them. So, let us do the dirty work and break it down for you.
FarmVille Collection How-To
First of all, the entire Collections interface has changed. Whenever you find a collectible, it will automatically be placed in your Collections menu, which is still found above the Ribbons button on the tool bar. Opening the menu will reveal six new Collection categories--clicking on each will reveal what's require to complete that Collection, and the rewards for completing it. Here are all six Collections, what you need to complete them, and their first-level rewards:

Berries Collection: Fertilize-All, 500 coins, 50 XP

  • 3 Fruit Bars
  • 3 Sorbet
  • 3 Preserves
  • 2 Dried Berries
  • 1 Berry Basket

Citrus Collection: Arborist, 500 coins, 50 XP

  • 3 Bubble Gum
  • 3 Juicers
  • 3 Sherbet
  • 2 Fruit Wedges
  • 1 Citrus Peel

Cows Collection: Fuel Refill, 500 coins, 50 XP

  • 3 Cow Bells
  • 3 Milking Buckets
  • 3 Milking Stools
  • 2 Milk Bottles
  • 1 More Cow Bell

Flowers Collection: 500 coins, 50 XP

  • 3 Corsages
  • 3 Humming Birds
  • 3 Dried Petals
  • 2 Butterflies
  • 1 Pollen

Grains Collection: 500 coins, 50 XP

  • 3 Grindstones
  • 3 Scythes
  • 3 Brans
  • 2 Chaffs
  • 1 Flour

Squash Collection: Arborist, 500 coins, 50 XP

  • 3 Pumpkin Seeds
  • 3 Stuffed Pastas
  • 3 Decorative Gourds
  • 2 Yerba Mate
  • 1 Sitar

FarmVille Berries Collection
You've likely noticed a pattern: The items that call for three of a kind, or common items, can be asked for from friends through the Collection menu. However, those that call for just two or one of a kind are uncommon and rare, respectively, meaning you'll have to find them yourself. Of course, all the Collections can be completed using Farm Cash.

More importantly, however, is that they can all be leveled up. Now, it's doubtful that anyone has gotten to the point of being able to level up their Collections as the feature was released moments ago (as of this writing). So, this could go one of two ways. Either A. turning in a Collection will automatically reward you, making the next turn-in "leveled up" to offer more rewards or B. when you've completed a Collection, you'll have the option to either turn it in for a reward or turn it in to level it up for enhanced rewards next time around.

There are tons more rewards to earn from these new Collections across several categories, so our advice would be to focus on the reward you want most. Thankfully, mousing over each Collection reward will reveal the rewards that wait in the next level. Use this as a goal, and you should have that super reward in no time. Well, luck permitting, of course.
