• # Farm Math? Oh Pie...

Hello!

I am looking for help with some Farming math.

Several of my guild mates have donated island plots so that I may utilize them to make Pork Pie for our H.O. in the roads.

Currently, I have 30 farm plots available to me.

I am using 6 for pigs, 2 for Sheep milk, 5 for corn, 7 for wheat, and the rest (10) for Food to feed all the animals.

I am curious if this is the best way to do this and what is the best thing to grow WITH OUT focus to feed the animals?

Looking at the plots, I based it off
1 Pig plot makes 180 Meat
1 Sheep plot makes 180 (ish) Milk
1 Corn plot makes 80 (ish) Corn
1 Wheat plot makes 80 (ish) Wheat
1 Food plot makes 80 (ish) Food

The Pork Pie Recipe is
18 Corn
36 Flour/Wheat
72 Meat
18 Milk

So the plots should make
400 Corn
560 Flour/Wheat
1080 Meat
360 Milk

1080 Meat lands me at 15 sets of pie. Which means I will need
270 Corn
540 Wheat
270 Milk

Then for Food for animals, I need 720 food to feed.
Food I should be making 800 ish.

I had been using Potatoes as food because I was given a few hundred to start with, but should I swap to something else? Carrots seem cheaper, but make 0 seeds. Does the seed chance with out focus out weigh using carrots as feed?

If something is wrong with my math or I should change a plot or 2 from corn to something else?

Thankyou for any help or feedback and taking the time to read/comment!
• I'm not sure about the economics of potatoes versus carrots, but you might improve your pie output a bit in another way.

I see you have an overage of milk and corn in this schema. You can grow more than one thing in a single plot. If you were to grow pigs in three of the positions in one of the plots currently used for milk production (3 for pig, 6 for sheep), and also divide one of the plots used for for corn also (3 for wheat, 6 for corn) you get an extra 2 pies every 2 or 3 days.
