I'm starting a new job in March with a fairly long commute, so I'm trying to come up with ideas for new farms to help pass the time on the train with my Switch. Since 1.4 came out, I've pretty much completed my winery farm and my alcohol-free pickle/jam/caviar farm (married to Penny). My current idea is to make a farm that focuses on ranching, either Sheep or Pigs. I've done a sheep farm and a pig farm in the past, but neither play-through was very optimized or thought out. This time, I'd like to have a plan. If I do sheep, I'll want to rush Farming 10 to get the Shepherd profession as soon as possible. If I do pigs, I'll want to rush Foraging 10 for the Botanist profession. Either way, my goal will probably be 8-10 Deluxe Barns with around 100 animals. One big question I have is what farm type to choose. Part of me wants a different experience than the standard farm, but the optimizer in me wants to make sure I can fit 8-10 barns in a neat and organized way. For example, the forest farm could make sense for pigs because the extra large stumps will help me get to Foraging 10 faster. On the other hand, there isn't a lot of good space for 8-10 barns plus grazing area. The best forest farm layout I've come up with so far resigns itself to feeding my animals with hay and looks like this: https://stardew.info/planner/29-bitter-cattle-sang-merrily/. Does anyone have experience with a ranching-focused farm they could share?
