The hops farm is a food production building.
The hops farm is a large yard, where hops are grown. After crops have grown high enough, they are delivered by the farmer to the stockpile, which can be used to produce ale.
The hops farm yields hops as a base material for ale production. Brewers can carry them to the brewery from the stockpile and produce ale for bonus popularity, when they are ready for harvest. Crops may wither after some time, if they are not harvested. Hop farms must be built on fertile land or oases.
Rabbits are an uncommon enemy of fresh crops, eating them and preventing them from growing, severely hindering production if left unchecked.
- Hops can rot by Hop Weevils. This is a custom event, which destroys all maturing and fully grown hops, but leaving already harvested ones unaffected.
