Neighbors are people such as acquaintances or friends that you add to help you in playing FarmVille 2. You also can get up to 9 neighbors you don’t know at all which are not added to your Facebook account called community neighbors. Some aspects of gameplay are only available to people with a certain amount of neighbors.
You can visit your neighbors and help them to get bonus Water, experience and Coins. You can help them get additional items, finish buildings and get quests done by messages on your profile page or ingame messaging system.
Neighbors can also visit your farm, just like when you visit their farms. The may feed your animals, water fertilize or harvest your crops and trees for you without using any of your consumables.
You may also have hay bales on your farm. You can use these to request farm hands. Clicking on a hay bale brings up the list of your friends, send them invites and wait for them to arrive. When you have a friend sitting on your hay bale you can click on them to pick them up then drop them where you want them to help you out.
Farmhands can only be used on crops to water fertilize, speed grow or harvest them. They can also be dropped on the Kitchen or Kiln for extra power or on your Fuel pump for extra fuel.
You will get the following bonus every time you visit and perform 5 actions on your neighbor’s farm:
- 1 XP
- 50 Coins
- Sometimes 1 Water (chance of about 25%).
