Advantages of Homegrown Food Production

No Need for Assigned Families: This method won’t use up your labor pool since no families need to be assigned to it.

Independence from Land Fertility: You’re not limited by land fertility, so you can place your food production wherever you want.

Major Food Source: It can become your primary food source, providing the bulk of sustenance for your population.

Enhanced Food Variety: Offering a variety of food promotes quicker population growth and helps meet tier requirements faster.

Vegetable Gardens

Planning for passive food production begins with selecting the size of your burgage plots. The size depends on their intended use.

Large backyards are most beneficial for vegetable plots (or fruit trees with the relevant upgrade). For vegetables, opt for wider plots rather than just long ones. Once you’ve outlined your plots, you’ll find options to rotate and adjust their size. Decrease the size until expansion housing appears for each plot.

Expanding the plot not only allows for more vegetables to be planted but also permits the construction of housing expansions, preventing population cap issues. A single wide burgage can accommodate as much population as the same width of land with two burgages. The additional family from the expansion can assist with maintaining the large vegetable garden.

A moderately sized vegetable garden can yield enough vegetables for up to 10 families, enhancing food variety. These plots benefit from having more families nearby, making upgrades easier.

Markets prioritize fulfilling the needs of closer burgages first. If resources are limited, only the plots nearer to the market will be upgradeable. Unlike artisan housing, the extra families on these plots can work elsewhere.

Chicken Coops

Plot size doesn’t affect egg production, so it’s best to use small plots with just enough space for a backyard extension. You only need one family to maintain a chicken coop, so a plot wide enough for a housing expansion isn’t recommended. If you place the coops on plots without expansions, you can have more coops per family. This strategy also works for goats, for passive hide production.

Because larger plots don’t increase egg output, aim for roughly twice as many chicken coops as vegetable gardens to consistently benefit from the extra food variety.

However, producing eggs doesn’t automatically mean you have a surplus for the market. More families in the plot mean more consumption at home, so these plots should be the last ones you upgrade to tier 3, or maybe never. Since you want to upgrade them the least, they should be the furthest from your market.
