How Do I Expand My Ranch?

Hi everyone! We sometimes get questions about how to expand your ranch. In this posting, we'd like to shed some light on this.

First, there are 2 different kinds of Expansions available: Standard expansions and Yard expansions.

Standard Expansion
  • The Standard Expansion has these characteristics:
  • You can place anything you want on it.
  • When you buy this, a stroke of 1 land plot wide, is added to the two bottom sides of your farm. 
  • The Yard has these characteristics:
  • You can place only trees, animals, machines and decorations on this - not crops.
  • When you buy this, a stroke of 1 land plot wide, is added to the two top sides of your farm.
All Expansions
  • The following things are the same for both kinds of land expansion.
  • You have to expand step by step: start with the smallest, and work your way up to the bigger ones.
  • To get the first standard Expansion, you need to either have 10 neighbors and pay 10,000 coins, or pay 10 RC (regardless of how many neighbors you have).The Yards are more expensive.
Here you can see what happens when you get a standard Expansion:
...and after!


  1. Game is for the birds, too many you want me to do, instead of wht I need to do...too many items need rc, ranch expansions of 1 row is for the birds also.I'll stick to farmtown, Thank you very much.

    1. I agree, but I guess that's how they make money. I try to play without caving in to purchasing RC, but once in a while I do. Some people are spending a fortune to make the game go faster. Ridiculous. I'm playing for fun, thats all.

  2. what are the gears used for?? i have alot of them and don't know what they are used for...
    if you have an answer please email me at

    1. Gears are used as materials for various machines, e.g. the Coffee, Candy and Easter Egg Machines (this last one is a specialty in the Easter Missions 2012).

    2. if you dont need them you can trade for OP

    1. I was about to answer your question, but since you removed it...

  4. Family Farm is an innovative tycoon game in the setting of 19th century farmsteads. It's a simulation Family Farm
    of a farmstead experienced in stories which span a generation. Clicking cows won't earn you any cash! You control characters with RPG-like attributes, skills and needs. Keep them fed, develop their skills, upgrade house to accommodate a bigger family and grow their land in to a Family Farm!

  5. I paid 10000 for Farm extension but it wont expand.. do I have to be at a certain level of game or have I been ripped off. Please help.

  6. how do you buy a large home ranch in this game

  7. I could buy a extension and it did not expand. with my coins but it won't expand this is the first time for me to get one. can someone help me so I can get this. I don't have any more room and need it.
