Ancient Seeds of Stardew Valley are indispensable for transforming your farm into a profitable business; here’s how to get them swiftly.
In Stardew Valley, Ancient Seeds are uncommon farming items that produce Ancient Fruits. They hold significant value, are scarce, and can be challenging to come by, particularly for novice farmers with limited activity on their farms. While there are organic in-game methods to eventually obtain this item, they tend to be slow and non-repeatable. This guide, on the other hand, instructs you on the most effective ways to locate and cultivate Ancient Seeds, providing optimal methods for maximizing the yield of their products.
Stardew Valley: Every Wallet Item and How to Get Them
The wallet in Stardew Valley holds several permanent items, but no clues on how to get them.
How to Get Ancient Seed
To get Ancient Seed, talk to the Traveling Merchant. She can sell you the seed pack for 100 to 1,000g. Other ways to find Ancient Seeds include donating the seed’s Artifact to the Museum and putting Ancient Fruit in the Seed Maker. There is also a slight chance (0.5%) that other crops will turn into Ancient Seed in the Seed Maker.
- Talk to the Traveling Merchant. The Traveling Cart can be found in Cindersap Forest on Fridays and Sundays. Visit her regularly to purchase her limited resources of Ancient Seeds.
- Donate the Artifact to the Museum. Gunther will reward you with a pack of Ancient Seeds if you bring him the dead seed.
- Process Ancient Fruit. Insert an Ancient Fruit in a Seed Maker to get more sprouts.
To enhance your chances of obtaining free Ancient Seeds, a useful method is to insert various crops into the Seed Maker at different times of the day.
How to Get Ancient Seed Artifact
The most common way to find Ancient Seed Artifacts is by slaying Monsters. Bug, Cave Fly, Grub, Mutant Fly, and Mutant Grub have 0.5% of dropping this item. Alternatively, you can obtain this Artifact by excavating in the Cindersap and The Mountain areas. There’s also a slight possibility of uncovering the Ancient Seed Artifact from Fishing Treasures and Artifact Troves.
Best Ways to Use Ancient Seed
Selling Ancient Seeds doesn’t yield much profit. To maximize their value, the most effective approach is to plant them in the greenhouse and then process their fruits into Jelly or Wine. Both items fetch a significantly higher price, reaching up to 1,100g. For those without access to the greenhouse, planting Ancient Seeds on the farm during Spring, Summer, and Fall is a viable alternative, though it requires a 28-day growth period.
If you have the Tiller Skill, you can sell Ancient Fruit Wine for up to 1,210 Gold.
