Updated on: July 13th, 2021 - Updated the best farming games for Android and added download links
I love farming games on any platform, whether it’s on my Switch, my computer or on my mobile device. Though I do not have the land or patience to farm in the real world, being able to farm in the digital world has brought a whole new adventure together. It’s just so calm and relaxing when you are taking care of your farm and interacting with the people that visit farms.
Stardew Valley is just the best farming game on Android (and everything else, to be completely honest) at the moment. After you are given a farm from your grandfather, leaving your terrible office life, you can then build up your farm, clear the land, get animals, interact with locals, attend festivals and so much more. The game is based on energy, which can be regenerated by sleeping at the end of the day, or by going to the hot baths.
Similar to Stardew Valley in more than one way, Harvest Town is another top farming game for Android that will give you not only a sense of accomplishment but also more than enough tasks to keep you busy. In Harvest Town just like in Stardew, you'll get to experience season changes, sailing, mining and so much more.
It also features some pretty neat pixel graphics that feel like the perfect addition to the game, so if you want a cool farming sim to keep you busy for one too many hours, this is the one to play!
Pocket Harvest is a pixel farming adventure where you can grow crops with hopes of creating prize-winning produce, which will then help your farm gain more orders and popularity. The game is full of animals to create many of the products and the option of bringing tourists to your farm, as additional revenue, so it’s up to you to decide where your farm goes.
And to keep the pixel graphics theme going, Pocket Harvest is the third title on the list to rock them - in quite a stylish and colourful way too!
FarmVille 2: Country Escape is a more arcade farming game, where you can slowly build up your farm over time, growing different crops and getting various animals to help make your farm profitable. Much like the PC version of FarmVille, many of these items need you to wait some time before they are ready to harvest, so it’s a long grind.
If you've played FarmVille before, then you know just how addictive and great it can be. FarmVille 2: Country Escape follows the same pattern, just elevates it to a whole new level.
Hay Day is a farming game that lets you plant crops, feed your animals, and help neighbours with the items they need. You can grow and produce for others, start a roadside shop, fish, build your town, and even visit other people to see how their farm is doing. It’s a good social farming game for Android that has all of the basics and quite a bit of polish to it.
WeFarm is a newer farming game that has some really adorable graphics. I particularly love the animations on the different animals you can get for your farm! You can farm, fish, sell items, and help out neighbours. Helping out others will give you better relationships with them and they can help you along the way too. There is a slightly bigger world to explore, bringing some adventure to farming.
In a way, it's similar to Stardew Valley - you can gather and explore the world around you, giving you a lot more options than just expanding your farmland.
Egg, Inc. is a clicker farming game for Android where your farm is basically all about chickens who are producing eggs for you to sell. You will need to tap the screen to gain more eggs, then sell them off to upgrade various buildings, get more chickens, and generally manage the factory-style farm you are creating for max profit.
It's all pretty simple at its core, but it's super fun, relaxing, and (honestly) oddly satisfying seeing all of these chicks run about your farm!
As it turns out, the Smurfs farm their village so that they can eat food and survive. You don’t only need to create food, but you also need to grow mushroom homes for your Smurfs to live in! You can decorate your village, meet characters from the TV series and even play a bunch of mini-games too.
If you like colourful games where you get to show off your decorating skills, then Smurfs' Village will definitely prove to be up for the challenge. We'd recommend you try to keep a balance between the decors, otherwise, you might just end up losing all the farm plots amongst the plethora of decors gathered together!
Tsuki Adventure is an adorable farming game that is so much more than growing crops. On top of building up your farm, you can eat ramen and fly kites, hanging out with your animal friends and exploring a cute world as you do so. It’s a very relaxing and fun game that is well worth playing if you want a chill farmer's life.
It's also super adorable, and the art style cleverly combines all the adorable Japanese elements in a super smart way, making Tsuki Adventure something truly kawaii. Oh, and as a side not - did you know 'tsuki' means 'moon' (it'll all make sense later on in the game)?
Harvest Moon is another story-based, farming game, that’s been around for a long time. Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories brings a story aspect to this farming game, with the additional challenge of befriending every person in your town to learn more about their own stories as well. You’ll have a lot of control over your own life and farm in this game!
While the graphics are nowhere near the adorable ones from Tsuki Adventure or the pixel-perfect ones from Stardew Valley, it's still pretty good, with its rather simplistic approach. Nonetheless, we still consider it one of the best farming games for Android phones.
If you want to play a farming game that’s not in the middle of nowhere, Family Farm Seaside can fill that gap! You will be farming and looking after animals on the seaside, with a view of the ocean and the beach just offscreen. Family Farm Seaside also has a cooking aspect to the game, so you can sell your crops or cook with them.
This game is pretty fun, although if you don't like waiting for crops for too long, it might not be the best for you. Family Farm Seaside doesn't exactly have much else to it, other than a great farming and cooking aspect.
Pocket Pioneers is a lovely game with strong Animal Crossing vibes in terms of graphics, but on a farming setup. It's amazing, and while it's still in early access, it offers a multiplayer aspect together with more than enough customization options - for your character, for your farm, and much more.
Aside from farming, you can also socialize, build and decorate your home, and really enjoy all the fun aspects this game has to offer.
A voxel farming game, Blocky Farm has everything you’d want from a farming game; growing crops, raising animals and riding tractors. Along with farming, you can also go fishing out on a boat, feed your animals and keep your farm underway as you continue to grow your crops.
It’s one of the best farming games on Android right now, especially more so if you love the nice blocky graphics it rocks. Oh, and did we mention taking care of your pets? Yeah, that's an easy winner in our book.
Farm Heroes Saga is a connect-3 sort of farming game. You need to connect different cute veggies in hopes of matching them and cleaning the board. There are power-ups to help you along, as well as some strange story about a raccoon that needs defeating.
Though this isn’t your traditional farming game, with crops and animals to feed, it’s worth a mention. After all, it has close to 10 million downloads on Google Play right now.
In a more realistic attempt to farm, Farming Tractor Simulator 2020 has you driving a tractor around to cultivate and farm your plot of land. There are lots of different crops to cultivate, areas to drive over and other tasks that you do need to complete to keep your farm going. Though it’s realistic, it’s still fun.
