Even though the days of the FarmVille craze are long gone, farming games are still out there – and you can play them offline, without WiFi, doing everything at your own pace.
It’s never too cold (or hot) outside to do some virtual farming on our computer or laptop.
And today I am here to share with you the best farming games you can play on PC/laptop.
This is one of the most relaxing games ever, and a title that will always hold a special place in my heart. If you try it, I am sure you will fall in love with it instantly.
It’s a lot more than a farming game, although you will be tending crops, planting and harvesting, as well as caring for various animals.
But you will do so much more – it’s a real RPG with lots of characters and paths for you to follow.
One thing is sure: you will never run out of things to do in Stardew Valley and you will always be entertained and relaxed when playing this game. So if you haven’t done so already, do yourself a favor and get it now!
This is a game that I absolutely love to play together with my son. It’s all peaceful, sandbox gaming with no violence but instead tons of plants and beauty.
This is perfect for kids and adults alike and the fact that you can play it on the same computer makes it even better.
Plant and grow crops, harvest them and unlock new ones, build various structures and play as you see fit: a great farming game that gives you complete freedom.
Farming Simulator 2022
If you want to go above and beyond the casual approach of most games on this list, then Farming Simulator is the game you need. And even though it has a “2022” attached to its title, know that it’s still very up to date and rewarding.
You will skip the manual planting and harvesting, as well as the casual approach and jump into farming vehicles and take everything to the next level, in a game that delivers the most accurate farming experience possible.
A sandbox RPG adventure that’s very similar in both concept and atmosphere with Stardew Valley.
You are the owner of a Kynseed – a magical seed that grows a tree where your choices manifest in its branches. So everything you do (or at least most things) will have an impact on the evolution and growth of the tree.
You’ll be planting crops and exploring, building a family and fully enjoying your time in this charming, relaxing game.
My Time at Portia
A combination of Minecraft, FarmVille and Stardew Valley can never go wrong – and this is what My Time at Portia is all about.
While the farming element of the game isn’t necessarily the main focus here – crafting and other actions are, we can still consider this one a “farming” game – and a mighty good one as well, giving you a lot of things to do and enjoy.
Farm Frenzy: Refreshed
This one’s more about the animals, than it is about tending crops: but it’s still fun. A smaller screen, fewer things to do, but again: still fun, otherwise it wouldn’t be on my list.
The best part? This is a remake of the original Farm Frenzy game, updated with better graphics and more things to do. You will love it!
Guide the red-haired Scarlett as she does all the farming needed in the game.
From feeding feisty animals to gathering fresh eggs to making delicious pastries, you’ll turn a humble little homestead into a booming agribusiness. You’ll have to stay on your sun-kissed toes, though.
Alice Greenfingers 2
This is an older game which is still relevant today – like most of the games on this list. A time management game that will quickly take you through levels that get more and more difficult as you progress – but without becoming stressful.
In this game, you join Alice as she applies her green thumb to her lazy Uncle Berry`s ailing farm.
Grow fantastic flora and populate the farmstead with exciting animals. Earn money selling crops, picking fruit, or auctioning livestock and dairy.
A game that mixes farming with dinosaurs, exploration and quests can’t go wrong. And this is exactly what Paleo Pines offers.
This game is a place where you can express your individuality and creativity; no two ranches are the same!
Build square pens, or not (although the locals might have something to say about that!).
Use decor to build a romantic garden, give your ranch a witchy vibe, or go full-on-farmer with rows and rows of tilled soil.
Escape to the world of Fae Farm and create your own cozy home in the enchanted world of Azoria.
As you nurture and grow your homestead, you’ll get to meet charming characters, foster deep relationships and discover ways to infuse magic into everything you do.
While you can enjoy this game alone at your own pace, you can also team up with up to three other players, visit their homestead to progress together.
It’s time to leave big-city life in Pokyo behind and start a new chapter of your life on Coral Island!
Be who you want and create the idyllic farm of your dreams, where you’ll tend crops, nurture animals, and build a bond with the natural world around you.
Help revitalize the nearby town and its surrounding coral reefs, and forge relationships with a vibrant community of more than 70 fellow people who call Coral Island home.
Builder. Farmer. Hunter. Trader. Ranching certainly isn’t your average job. But it’s fun, especially if you’re looking for something a bit more realistic, in the veins of Farming Simulator, recommended above.
Buy tools from the local hardware store and purchase a range of vehicles from the garage to help with your rebuilding projects.
Renovate the main house, decide what livestock you want to farm and construct the barns, pens and runs you’ll need to keep them safe and secure.
Now we’re switching to a more casual approach, allowing you to play at your own pace.
Play as Tara, who has just moved to a cute rural island to help out her grandma and the family farm. Relax into your rural lifestyle as you tend crops, care for animals, fish, craft, and more throughout the day.
By night, nurture your inner witch as you learn to fly your broomstick, brew potions, control the weather and seasons or even transform into a cat! Sounds fun? It is!
My Time at Sandrock
Just like My Time at Portia, My Time at Sandrock takes place in a wholesome post-apocalyptic world 330 years after the Day of Calamity destroyed most modern technologies.
After accepting a job offer to become Sandrock’s newest Builder, you’ll arrive in the wild and rugged city-state, where it’s up to you and your trusty tools to restore the community to its former glory.
Gather resources to build machines, befriend locals, and defend Sandrock from monsters — all while saving the town from economic ruin!
My Farm Life 2
A beautiful farming game that takes everything to the next level – literally!
I am saying this because in My Farm Life 2, players tend to crops 30 stories above busy city streets!
You’ll be running your impressive rooftop farm, growing crops, milking cows and producing goods: all in the game’s cool episodes that get more and more challenging and fun.
These would be my recommended farming games to play on your computer. You have a ton of great options: from really casual games to more complex titles, so choose whatever looks good.
