FarmVille Lighthouse Cove Chapter 4 Bonus Challenges: Everything you need to know

As we told you earlier this evening, Zynga has continued in the new tradition of goals in the Lighthouse Cove in FarmVille, releasing three goals for Chapter 4 of the third farm's story, and then releasing a set of harder "Bonus Challenges" for those farmers that really like a challenge (or just want extra prizes). In terms of Bonus Challenges, these seem to be fairly simple (all things considered), as they won't require you to expand your land. Still, there are quite a few crafting requirements here that might slow you down depending on how far you've upgraded your restaurant, so perhaps it all balances out. Either way, here's a complete guide to completing these three Bonus Challenges for Chapter 4. Good luck!

Bonus Challenge 1

  • Harvest 90 Cove Cranberries

  • Make Wild Blueberry Pie Twice

  • Improve the Cove to Level 5

If you've already passed Level 5 in repairing the Lighthouse Cove, this task will automatically be completed for you. Meanwhile, Wild Blueberry Pie is made inside your Restaurant using two Chandler Blueberry, three Wheat and two Rhubarb bushels each. Finally, Cove Cranberries take a full 24 hours to grow. Finish this first goal and you're given 500 XP, a German Shepherd (regular dog, not a puppy) and 2,500 coins.

Bonus Challenge 2

  • Complete an Aviary

  • Harvest Lighthouse ove

  • Make Black Raspberry Wine Twice

If you don't already have an Aviary on your Lighthouse Cove specifically, you'll need to build one to complete this goal (remember, these goals will disappear when visiting other farms, so even if you have multiples on other farms, that simply won't count for this goal). Either way, you can make the Black Raspberry Wine with three Raspberry, two White Grape and three Chandler Blueberry bushels each. Finishing this second goal gives you 1,000 XP, a Sebright Chicken and 2,500 coins.

Bonus Challenge 3

  • Harvest an Aviary

  • Harvest 110 Kennebec Potatoes

  • Make Dill Potato Skins Twice

Yet again, this one is about two things: birds and food. After you've built your Aviary for Bonus Challenge 2, waiting a day will see the building become ready to harvest, so long as you kept at least one bird inside it. You'll receive one for free, so just leave it in there and you're all set. As for the Dill Potato Skins, those are made using three Tomato, two Kennebec Potato and three Dill bushels each. Finishing this final Challenge goal will give you 1,000 XP, a Tide Pool with Crabs and another 2,500 coins.

As I said before, the challenge with these three Bonus Challenges doesn't look to come from land or even the growing of so many crops. What will likely be the biggest factor is how far you've upgrade your Restaurant. As certain recipes are only available as you upgrade your Restaurant (which is, in itself only possibly by crafting plenty of dishes, very often), you might have to take some time to catch up before really being able to put these three Bonus Challenges to bed. I wish you luck if you're trying to complete them all.

What do you think of these Chapter 4 Bonus Challenges? Are they the hardest ones yet, even if they don't require you to expand your land, or are you ready to tackle everything they ask of you? Sound off in the comments.
