Grow The Best Farm in The Sims 4
Since TS4: Cottage Living was launched in 2021, we have all found ourselves spending countless hours farming in The Sims 4—planting plenty of crops, tending to our adorable livestock, and even joining Finchwick Fair competitions to express our pride in our produce! But even before the said expansion pack was launched, we have already been managing our farms through other farming mods released by fellow simmers in the past.
As farming is undoubtedly becoming one of the most enjoyable aspects of The Sims 4, we are bringing you a mega list of farming mods and CC to help you build the best in-game farm ever. And hey, don’t forget to check the last item on the list. It’s a surprise item that will massively improve your Sims 4 farm gameplay!
1. Hire a Farmhand Mod by SiriusSimmer
If you need a helping hand in your day-to-day activities on your farm, call the assistance of professional Farmhands! Farmhands can aid you in feeding your chickens, cleaning your chicken coops, animals, and animal sheds, refilling their daily feeds, and taking care of your crops. Just use the phone and select “Hire Farmhand Service”. Much like Maids, Farmhands can give one-time or regular assistance.

3. Green Thumb Trait Mod by KiaraSims4Mods
In The Sims 3, we had the Green Thumb Trait in the list of mental traits available, while in The Sims 4, Sims can get the Super Green Thumb Reward Trait after completing the Perfect Garden Lifetime aspiration.

This one lets your Sims have plenty of crop-related whims, buffs, and social interactions!

4. Farmer Trait Mod By KiaraSims4Mods
Just like the Green Thumb Trait, the Farmer Trait also involves gardening-related whims and activities. However, the latter is all-inclusive of other farming methods, such as fishing, crafting, playing with animals, discussing the farmer’s lifestyle, and many other farm-related interactions. If your Sims have this trait, they will be able to learn Gardening and Fishing skills twice as fast as other simmers.
