Foraging is an activity which involves collecting resources directly from the ground, or from trees and bushes. The Player can Hang Out with a Villager assigned the Foraging Role to increase the number of fruits and wild crops collected when harvesting.

Each area of The Valley has unique resources available to forage. After collecting a foraged item for the first time it will highlight as completed in the 'Foraging' tab of the Collection.

Foraged items can be cooked into meals, consumed to regain Energy, sold for Star Coins, or gifted to villagers to raise Friendship. Non-edible foraged items can be used to craft items.

Energy Cost

Main article: Energy

It does not require any energy to Harvest or Pick Up items.

Villager Companions

When reaching level 2 Friendship with a Villager, they can be assigned a Role. Villagers who have been assigned the Foraging Role will gain extra Friendship when collecting foraged materials. They also have a chance to drop extra foraged materials when harvesting wild crops and fruits while they're following. Extra materials they produce will be dropped on the ground, and can be picked up by running over them. These bonuses only apply to items with the Harvest interaction label (e.g. Fruits, Mushrooms, Spices), not items with the Pick Up interaction label (e.g. Wood, Flowers).

Each level of friendship increases the rate which extra materials will drop. It's not only effective for leveling up Friendship with these characters, but extremely helpful for offering bonus materials when foraging. Be sure to always bring a Companion along when foraging!

Crafting Materials

A variety of resources can be found throughout the Valley - many which are unique to specific biomes. Some of these materials can be refined into higher level materials, which may be a component of a crafting recipe.

Flowers

Flowers can be found in each biome growing wild on the ground. Each flower is unique to only one biome.

The distribution of flowers grown in each biome is not random; there is a set number of each type that will grow. Therefore, if you wish to collect a certain type of flower, you only need to pick that flower type in order for more of that type to spawn.

Beast's Greenhouse is an unlockable stall which supports flower gathering. It provides free flowers to collect at no cost.

Flower Spawning

After collecting all flowers of a type and color in a biome it can take up to two hours for them to fully respawn. The internal respawn timer for each type of flower is determined by its rarity - with the rarest (2 per biome) on a 1 hour timer and the most common (6 per biome) on a 20 minute timer.[2]

The internal timer which triggers respawns is always running in the game background - it checks if there’s an available space and availability for a flower to spawn, if there’s room a single flower will spawn, then (regardless of spawning) the timer restarts. Respawn time isn’t influenced by when the flower is picked - a flower can respawn immediately if the internal timer lines up just after it’s collected. Because of this mechanic the respawn timer for the first flower picked will be a range - e.g. a flower on a 20 minute timer can respawn between 0-20 minutes - but each flower after that can be timed exactly by referencing the first flower's spawn time.[3]

Examples
  • Player collects 4 of a 30 minute flower type. If respawn 1 happens at 12:36, respawn 2 will happen at exactly 42:36, respawn 3 at 1:12:36, and respawn 4 at 1:42:36.
  • Player collects 2 of a 60 minute flower type. If respawn 1 happens at 45:16, respawn 2 will happen at exactly 1:45:16.

The sum of timers to fully respawn all flowers of a type & color is a maximum of two hours.

Respawn timers in a newly unlocked biome may not work correctly until the entire biome has been cleared of the flowers initially. Biomes can have extra spawns when first unlocked, and these must first be removed for the biomes flowers to properly spawn in using the game's internal timer.

Dreamlight and Memories

There are three rotating Dreamlight Duties directly related to Foraging: "Harvest 3 Fruit", "Harvest 3 Spices", and "Pick 3 Mushrooms". Foraging comprises its own tab of Dreamlight Achievements. There are 16 Memories consisting of 10 Memory Pieces each that can only be found by gardening or foraging (the Harvest action), though the Collection menu only explicitly indicates gardening.
