Pioneer Trail Dream Bakery: Everything you need to know

After a long day out on the homestead in Pioneer Trail, chopping down trees and tending to crops and animals, what better way could you find to relax than to sit back with a cold brew from the saloon and a nice sweet treat to eat? We've already taken care of the saloon part, but what about those treats? Well, now you can take care of that too by building your very own Dream Bakery on your Homestead. This feature is available to users that have reached at least Level 14, and it brings a new crop to the game: Huckleberry.

To finish your Dream Bakery you need to collect just one set of building ingredients. You can have up to three on your Homestead, but will technically only need one to complete this feature's accompanying goals. To be extra clear, these Bakeries can't be upgraded, and you'll need to build each of the three one at a time by collecting more and more materials for each one. Here's the requirements for a single Dream Bakery:

  • 5 Cooling Racks

  • 5 Bread Pantries

  • 5 Pie Plates

  • 5 Signage

  • 5 Striped Awnings

  • 5 Conveyor Belts

Each of these items can be earned by asking your friends to send them to you or by purchasing them with Horseshoes. As for the goals, they'll introduce you to the new items you can craft in your Dream Bakery, and will reward you with some boosts, trees and more along the way.

Nettie's Bakery Supply

  • Harvest 20 Beets or Pink Beets

The Mixed Sugar is an item that takes just ten minutes to craft, but requires 11 ingredients to create: five Sweet Beet Juices (drop when tending beets), three Refined Sugars and three Confection Sugars (both of these come from friends). When you collect enough ingredients to create two Mixed Sugars, you'll receive 125 XP, 2,000 coins and three Almond Trees for finishing this goal.

As you go along, you'll see that some of these crafting recipes require you to craft other items before they can be used to make the final product. Overall, this isn't something that's entirely foreign to Pioneer Trail, or even to other Zynga games, as we can have multiple crafting buildings (like a similar Kitchen) in CastleVille. It will be interesting to see how future features take advantage of this Dream Bakery (or don't), so stay with us for more.
