The wheat farm is a food production building.
The wheat farm is the place where grains are grown. After crops have grown high enough, they are delivered by the farmer to the stockpile, which can be used to produce bread.

Wheat is used as a base material for bread production. Mills can process it into flour, which is used by bakeries. Wheat is susceptible for withering, if not harvested in a certain amount of time. Rabbits can also eat wheat seeds and grown wheat.
As with most plantation, wheat farms can only be placed on green-lands and in the oasis. Wheat farms are the sole producer of wheat, which are the first resource in the bread production chain.
As all farm buildings, wheat farms are most effective in close proximity of the castle, so that the wheat farmer can harvest most of the wheat before withering.
Bread production is the most efficient way to generate food for the townsfolk, although the slowest to develop due to the required number of buildings, manpower and raw materials.
- Wheat can be destroyed by Drought. This is a custom event, which kills all growing and grown wheat-ears, but leaves harvested ones unaffected. It also prevents wheat from being grown for a small time.
