Stardew Valley is a popular farming simulation game developed by ConcernedApe. The game is set in a small town where the player takes on the role of a farmer who inherits a run-down farm. As the farmer, you aim to transform the farm into a thriving business while building relationships with the locals. This guide will cover some essential tips and tricks for success in Stardew Valley.

How to Run in Stardew Valley

One of the first things you’ll notice when playing Stardew Valley is how slow your character moves. To move around more quickly, you can run by pressing and holding the left mouse button or pressing the shift key. This will cause your character to sprint, making getting around the town and your farm easier.

It’s worth noting that running does drain your energy bar, displayed in the screen’s bottom right corner. If your energy is too low, your character will move slower and will only be able to run once you eat something to replenish your energy.

How to animation cancel Stardew Valley

Animation canceling in Stardew Valley is a technique that allows you to save time and perform actions more efficiently. It involves interrupting the animation of a specific action with another action, making it possible to perform actions in rapid succession.

To animation cancel in Stardew Valley, you need to start by selecting the tool you want to use. Once you’ve selected the tool, start performing the action you want to cancel. At the moment when the action begins, quickly press the tool button again to interrupt the animation. You will notice that the animation is cut short, allowing you to perform the next action immediately.

One of the most common uses of animation canceling in Stardew Valley is when using the hoe to till the soil. After tilling a patch of land, you can quickly switch to your seeds and plant them before the tilling animation finishes. Another common use is when fishing. After catching a fish, quickly pressing the cast button allows you to cast the line again before the animation of the fish being caught is completed.

It’s worth noting that not all actions can be animation canceled in Stardew Valley. The technique works best with actions that have a long animation. Some actions, such as eating or drinking, cannot be animation canceled.

How to Sell Crops in Stardew Valley

One of the primary ways to make money in Stardew Valley is by selling crops. To sell your crops, you’ll need to find a vendor who buys them. The most accessible vendor is Pierre, the owner of the general store in town.

To sell your crops to Pierre, you must visit his store during business hours (9 am to 5 pm). Once inside, approach the counter and click on the crops you want to sell in your inventory. Pierre will offer you a price for your crops, and you can accept or decline the offer.

As you progress through the game, you’ll unlock other vendors who will buy different types of crops at different prices. It’s a good idea to keep track of which crops are in season and which vendor offers the best prices to maximize your profits.

How to Sell Fish to Willy in Stardew Valley

Fishing is another way to earn money in Stardew Valley, and the best place to sell your fish is to Willy at the Fish Shop on the beach. To sell your fish, you’ll need to catch them first.

Once you have a fish to sell, head to the Fish Shop during business hours (9 am to 5 pm) and approach Willy. Click on the fish you want to sell in your inventory, and Willy will offer you a price. You can accept or decline the offer.

It’s worth noting that the value of the fish depends on its rarity and size. The rarer and larger the fish, the more money you’ll make. Investing in better fishing gear is also worth investing in, as it will increase your chances of catching rare and valuable fish.

How to Make a Furnace in Stardew Valley

As you progress through the game, you’ll need to smelt ore to create metal bars for upgrades and crafting. To smelt ore, you’ll need a furnace.

You’ll need 20 copper ore and 25 stone to make a furnace. Once you have the materials, head to your crafting menu and select the furnace. Place the furnace on your farm or house, and you can start smelting ore.

It’s worth noting that smelting ore consumes coal, which can be found by mining or purchased from the Blacksmith. It’s also worth upgrading your furnace to a higher quality one, as it will smelt ore faster and consume less coal.


Stardew Valley is an addictive and immersive farming simulation game with many things to do and explore. This guide covers some essential tips and tricks for success in Stardew Valley, including running and selling crops. Happy farming!
