FarmVille Thanksgiving Goals: Everything you need to know


While Thanksgiving may officially already be over, our friends in FarmVille are just getting around to celebrating via a set of nine new Thanksgiving goals on our farms. These goals will be available for the next two weeks, and if you happen to complete them with time remaining, you can start them all over again for extra rewards until they do eventually expire. We're here with a complete look at these goals, thanks to Zynga. Let's get started!


  • Get 6 Lanterns

  • Harvest 50 Pumpkins

  • Harvest Livestock Pen 2 Times

For this "Lanterns" task and any other tasks that asks you to collect a specific number of materials, you'll need to ask your friends to send these items to you via a general news post placed on your wall. While you're waiting for those to arrive, you can plant some Pumpkins that take eight hours to grow. Finally, the Livestock Pens can be on any farm, so if you happen to only have one on a single farm, you can just travel to another farm and tend one there as well. You'll receive 125 XP, a Fall Pig and 2,500 coins for completing this first goal.

Fires of Home

  • Get 7 Fire Pit Stones

  • Harvest 75 Tomatoes

  • Harvest Fall Pig 2 Times

The second you receive the Fall Pig above, you'll want to place it in an animal storage building like the Livestock Pen so that it can become ready quicker than if you left it out "alone." What's more, you can easily harvest the pig two times in the same day if you move it between buildings before collecting from each one. As for the Tomatoes, they take another eight hours to grow, so feel free to plant these at the same time that you plant the Pumpkins. That way, the Tomatoes will be ready and waiting for you immediately when you start this goal, saving you time in the long run. You'll receive 150 XP, an Unwither Potion and 3,000 coins when you finish this goal.

To Serve Farmers

  • Get 8 Cookbooks

  • Harvest 100 Rice

  • Harvest Fall Pig 2 Times

The Rice takes 12 hours to grow, so if you keep its wither schedule in mind, you can plant it along with the Pumpkins and Tomatoes above to have an easier time of things. Either way, you'll need to keep moving the Fall Pig around to your various buildings (even across farms where you have storage transfer licenses) in order to harvest it four full times in total. Completing this goal gives you 175 XP, a Tofurkey (tofu turkey), and 3,500 coins.

Mash It

  • Get 9 Potato Mashers

  • Harvest 125 Squash

  • Harvest Tofurkey 2 Times

Similar to the Fall Pig above, you'll want to place the Tofurkey in an animal storage building as soon as you receive it. That way, you won't have to wait days for the turkey to become ready twice on its own. Meanwhile, Squash takes a full two days to grow, so this would be the perfect time to use an Instant Grow if you have one around. When you complete this goal, you'll receive 200 XP, a Turbo Charge and 4,000 coins.

A Little Corny

  • Get 9 Corn Basket

  • Harvest 150 Wheat

  • Harvest Tofurkey 2 Times

You know the drill by now: just keep the Tofurkey in those animal storage buildings and you'll be able to harvest it much more often than you would be able to otherwise. Just don't forget to plant the Wheat at some point, as it takes 12 hours to grow. Completing this goal gives you 225 XP, an Undercover Turkey and 4,500 coins.

Not Crumby

  • Get 9 Bags of Breadcrumbs

  • Harvest 150 Carrots

  • Harvest Undercover Turkey 2 Times

Carrots take another 12 hours to grow, so feel free to plant them along with the Wheat above so that they're both done at once. Meanwhile, the Undercover Turkey follows the same formula as the Fall Pig and Tofurkey above, so make sure you place it on a farm that you can either transfer items to and from, or one that has more than one building that you can harvest each day with the Turkey inside. After you complete this goal, you'll receive 250 XP, a Fall Oak Tree and 5,000 coins.

In the Same Boat

  • Get 10 Gravy Boats

  • Harvest 150 Cabbage

  • Harvest Undercover Turkey 2 Times

Cabbage takes two full days to grow, so it's worth planting this crop ahead of time, hopefully saving you from waiting a full two days once you reach this goal on your farm. Even if you only save yourself a single day, or just a few hours, it's still better than being forced to wait two full days when the clock is forever ticking down. Completing this goal gives you 275 XP, a Mystery Game Dart and 5,500 coins.

Baking to Win

  • Get 11 Fresh Bread

  • Harvest 150 Spinach

  • Harvest an Aviary 2 Times

Again, you can complete these goals across your farms, so if you don't have more than one Aviary on the same farm, or you've already harvested all of the Aviaries on a single farm, you can always travel to others and tend Aviaries there. Meanwhile, the Spinach can be growing in the background on one farm, as it takes 14 hours to grow. After you finish this goal, you'll receive 300 XP, a Cider Duck item and 6,000 coins.

Dinner Time!

  • Get 12 Table Cloths

  • Harvest 200 Eggplant

  • Harvest Horse Paddock 2 Times

As with the Aviary task above, don't feel pressured into buying and building another Horse Paddock if you don't have two on a single farm. Instead, travel around to different farms and complete the task with ease that way. As for the Eggplant, this is another crop that should be planted even before you reach this goal, as it takes a full two days to grow. Completing this final goal in the series gives you 325 XP, a Turkey Horse and 6,500 coins. Good luck completing them all!
