Big Farm

  • No need to harass your friends to get things done – Good progress curve
  • Some minor glitches and annoyances

Big Farm is Goodgame’s take on the farming simulation genre and does away with energy in favour of reasonable wait times, you’ll also find no pressure to harass your friends through Facebook making the game perfect for the farmer that prefers to play solo.


Your goals in Big Farm are in line with most other games in the genre. You’ll be taking an underdeveloped area of land and slowly transforming it into a thriving farm complete with crops, animals and even buildings. With quests to guide your progress and constant upgrades with each and every level it’s easily to get sucked into managing your farm for hours on end.

In terms of mechanics you’ll recognise most of the game elements if you’ve played a farm management game before. If this is your first time managing a farm though you’ll find the starter quests more than sufficient at bringing you up to speed on the process of growing, harvesting and selling your crops to expand your farms opportunities.

Unlike similar games that stop there though in Big Farm players also have to build and manage various structures. These can either turn basic materials into ones that will fetch a higher price or be required to house certain animals or complete a quest for expansion.


Overall the game is much closer to an economic/city simulator than straight farm management game which will appeal to people that want more control over what they build and optimising for better returns from crops.

If you’ve enjoyed the simple games in this genre like FarmVille but are now seeking something with more depth that you can play by yourself without the need to rely on other players for advancement then Big Farm from Goodgame might be that opportunity.


  • Create a farm the way that you want.
  • Play without relying on friends or limited energy to get the job done.
  • Lots of levels and quests ensure there is always a task to complete.
  • Watch people walk around your farm as it expands in size.
  • Free to play and browser based with mobile apps available (Big Farm: Mobile Harvest).

  1. Big Farm is Big Headache

    This review is based on personal experience.

    Do you like farming games?

    Game is created by Goodgame Studios, an online games company founded in 2009 and based in Hamburg, Germany.

    Goodgame Big Farm is a free-to-play (freemium) farming simulator.

    Game requires flash player, a lot of RAM, is very slow and buggy.
    Customer support is useless.
    Community is great.
    Gameplay is very slow.
    Higher levels require YEARS of playing to achive.
    Game update on 16 August 2017. made many players VERY unhappy.

  2. Just been playing Big Farm via mistplay app.
    Only started at lower levels just to get a taster.
    Unlike other games similar to Big Farm this app does not have the annoying rare cash and you need a credit card to buy more problem.
    Cash and coins seem balanced which is better.
    I have seen on other reviews that the higher the buildings the more time you wait but this is standard in any game of this genre.
    The game is extremely addictive and easy to spend hours.
    Your phone running out of battery life will be the only thing that stops you from keeping going.
    Play on a laptop or tablet and it is game over, by this I mean you’re up all night.
    Star rating 5
