As most FarmVille 2 players have come to realize, many of the game's quests are level-based, leaving players without quests and objectives to complete if they complete everything before they level up and unlock new quests. In order to give players something else to work on, Zynga has introduced Cornelius, the Village Grocer, to our farms. We're here with a guide to this event, thanks to Zynga. Let's get started!
Cornelius will arrive on the road outside your farm, and his truck will immediately break down. He's stranded on your farm until the tow truck arrives, but you can also work on fixing Cornelius' truck as well. This is achieved via a timed quest which must be completed before you can unlock Cornelius's daily quests after that.
Fix Cornelius's Truck
Get 5 Traffic Cones
Make 8 Lemonades
The Lemonades are crafted using one Lemon Water and four Lemons each, with Lemon Water itself requiring two Lemons and one Water each. As for the Traffic Cones, these are earned by posting a general request on your news feed for help. Finally, Cornelius's Truck can be repaired by first collecting eight Wood Planks, eight Fire Extinguishers and eight Toolboxes. All of these are earned by asking your friends to send them to you. After that, you'll need to ask four friends to come help repair the Truck before finally finishing it off. Once you complete this quest, Cornelius will be "back in business," as it were, and you'll receive 40 XP and 2,500 coins.
After you complete this quest, you'll be able to start working on the actual Village Grocer partnership on your farm. Each day, he'll have an order for you, consisting of items that he wants to purchase from your farm. For instance, one order might ask for seven Parsnips, one Flour and one Cheese, and you would need to sell each of those items to Cornelius to be rewarded. Each specific item comes with its own point reward, and if you can sell all of the daily order items, you'll earn a special point bonus.
As you will have new orders each day, you will be able to collect more and more points in total, which work cumulatively to unlock prizes. There are nine prizes to earn as of this writing, with the first being a lovely Mosaic Bench for your farm. You can see outlines of the prizes via the Village Grocer menu, and it looks like we'll earn Baby Bottles and large packs of Unwithers as part of this event. Good luck completing these daily quests and earning all of Cornelius's prizes!
