Got Ribbons? How To Earn Ribbons in FarmVille

Got Ribbons? How To Earn Ribbons in FarmVille 

 

When you first start developing your farm in FarmVille, it’s easy to overlook the ribbons. You’ll earn a few incidentally as you plant and harvest your crops, and they give some nice bonuses, but most people don’t focus too much on these achievements. You’ll be doing yourself a big favor though, if you do take a closer look at the various ribbons available and what you need to do to earn them. Often it won’t take much of an adjustment to your game plan to get some ribbons under your belt and they give you a great advantage as you advance through the game.

Why You Want Ribbons 

You won’t be able to focus on earning ribbons if you don’t know what the criteria are for doing so. You can easily locate this information, though, by clicking on the ribbon icon in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Once you take a quick look at the different types of ribbons available and what you have to do to get them, you’ll see why it’s easy and worthwhile to focus on earning ribbons.

Basically, any of the tasks you complete in the game will eventually earn you a ribbon. You can accelerate the process, though, if you know what to focus on. For example, say you’re unsure about whether to buy another cow or branch out into shepherding.

Knowing that you can earn a ribbon for collecting goods from different types of animals might make your decision a little easier. It costs you a few hundred coins more to buy the sheep initially, but you’ll likely wind up with a bonus in the thousands once you achieve the ribbon. That’s a pretty good return on your investment.

Getting the Most

Acquiring as many neighbors as you can is the best thing to focus on first when you’re trying to earn ribbons. On top of the fact that you can earn the Local Celebrity ribbon just by having a certain number of neighbors, they can help you earn quite a few other ribbons too.

You can earn the Good Samaritan ribbon by helping out on your neighbors’ farms. Because you can only help each neighbor once a day, though, you’ll earn this ribbon faster the more neighbors you have. Having a lot of neighbors will also make it much easier to master categories like the Not Spoiled, Gifted! Ribbon. You earn these ribbons by receiving a certain number of unique gifts, and the more neighbors you have, the more gifts you’ll get.

It’s Worth Your Time

It really isn’t hard to rack up some ribbons quickly, but it can do you a lot of good in FarmVille. All it takes is a little bit of time and focus, and you’ll be well on your way towards earning some great bonuses in the form of both coins and experience points. This will give you a great boost when it comes to advancing to higher levels, as well as the cash to buy the new items you unlock when you do. The crops in the higher levels will also allow you to earn more coins more quickly, giving you even more cash to invest back into your farm.
