It's very important to choose the right farm layout, because each layout has both weaknesses and strengths. Below you can read about all of the four different layouts, and decide which one you want to go for.
Forest farm layoutThe Forest farm layout has forage items spawning on the whole western edge of the map, along with renewable stumps. This makes it very easy to use for getting a good amount of hardwood each day, but the downside is that this layout also comes with a unique type of weed that will spawn on your farm.
Hardwood is pretty difficult to farm efficiently on other layouts, and it takes lots of days to get a good amount of them, so this layout is really nice if you want to build a lot of hardwood-building on your farm.
