Seasons play an extremely important role In Stardew Valley, since they determine what crops can be planted during any given time of the year. This means that players have to plan out their entire harvest accordingly to ensure that they can maximize their profits.
Most crops in the game are specific to one season, but some valuable ones are able to survive the turn of the season as well. So because of their survivability, they tend to be massive money makers for players. We’ve actually covered this topic extensively in our Stardew Valley best crops guide.
Long story short, some crops are significantly more valuable than others. And if they can be planted throughout the year, the player’s profits would increase significantly. So this is where the Greenhouse comes into play.
Stardew Valley Greenhouse Guide
The Stardew Valley Greenhouse is this old and broken down building that can be found on your farm from the beginning. It’s been abandoned for years, and the player cannot interact with it in any way at all. You cannot repair it by yourself, and neither can Robin, the carpenter.
There are two ways that you can unlock and use this building, and both of them involve the Pelican Town Community Center.
Joja Community Development Form
If you choose to purchase a JojaMart membership for 5000g from Morris, you can convert the Community Center into a Joja Warehouse.
From here, you will gain access to the Joja Community Development Form, which can be used to complete five different town restoration projects. The Greenhouse development is the second most expensive project on this list, clocking in at 35000g.
This amount of money is nothing too substantial for players who have been playing for a while, but if you are starting up a new farm, you have your work cut out for you. It can take quite a bit of time to accumulate this money, so we suggest that you only go for the most profitable crops in the first year.
Once you make the payment, head to your house and go to sleep. When you wake up the next day, the Greenhouse should be fully repaired.
Community Center Pantry Bundles
The other method of unlocking the Greenhouse is significantly more complicated and time-consuming than the first, but it is also the most rewarding of the two. It involves restoring the Community Centre to its original glory by completing bundles for the Junimos.
This building, in particular, requires the completion of all the Pantry Bundles, which are checklists that require a wide variety of different items from across three different seasons. We’ll go over each of these checklists thoroughly, so there’s no confusion.
Spring Crops Bundle
As the name implies, this bundle requires crops that can only be grown in the Spring season. This includes:
- 1 Cauliflower.
- 1 Green Bean.
- 1 Parsnip.
- 1 Potato.
The Reward for completing this is 20 units of Speed-Gro.
Summer Crops Bundle
Requires crops that can only be grown in the Summer season. This includes:
- 1 Blueberry.
- 1 Hot Pepper.
- 1 Melon.
- 1 Tomato.
Completing this rewards you with 1 Quality Sprinkler.
Fall Crops Bundle
All of these crops can only be grown in the Fall Season, apart from Corn, also available in Summer. This includes:
- 1 Corn.
- 1 Eggplant.
- 1 Pumpkin.
- 1 Yam.
A Bee House is rewarded for completing this bundle.
Quality Crops Bundle
Unlike the previous three bundles, this one requires crops from the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons. They also cannot be regular crops; they need to be of Gold quality. This includes:
- 5 Gold Quality Corn.
- 5 Gold Quality Melons.
- 5 Gold Quality Parsnips.
- 5 Gold Quality Pumpkins.
Your reward for completing this is a Preserves Jar.
For this bundle, you first need to purchase the Deluxe Coop and the Deluxe Barn, then populate them with Chickens, Cows, Ducks, Goats, Rabbits and Sheep. Over time these animals will produce items that you have to turn in for this bundle. This includes:
- 1 Duck Egg.
- 1 Large Egg.
- 1 Large Brown Egg.
- 1 Large Milk.
- 1 Large Goat Milk.
- 1 Wool.
You receive a Cheese Press for completing this.
Out of all of these, the Artisan Bundle is perhaps the most complicated. It requires making multiple different artisan goods, some of which require animal products as raw materials. This includes:
- 1 Apple.
- 1 Apricot.
- 1 Cherry.
- 1 Orange.
- 1 Peach.
- 1 Pomegranate.
- 1 Honey.
- 1 Jelly.
- 1 Cheese.
- 1 Goat Cheese.
- 1 Cloth.
- 1 Truffle Oil.
One Keg is rewarded for finishing this bundle.
Once all of these individual bundles are completed, a little animation should play out in the Community Center as the Pantry is completely fixed. After this, go back to your house and go to sleep. When you wake up the next morning, the Stardew Valley Greenhouse will be fully restored and ready to use.
This has been our Stardew Valley Greenhouse Guide. We hope that it will help you grow crops all through the year in the game.
