Games About Farming

Once the primary occupation of most people, farming has long since become a specialized profession, one which is vital to the survival of us all. Without farmers, we simply could not eat.

Farmers are part innovator, part businessman, part long-range planner, part risk-taker, part hard worker. This means they are also Systems Thinkers, people able to understand the links between the needs and impact of the farm as a whole and the ability to make the business profitable. It’s not surprising that there are so many games about farmers.

Why choose these games out of the hundreds of games about farming? Because you can read a review of each one of these games right here on Meeple Mountain!

Tom Franklin

By day, I'm a mild-mannered IT Manager with a slight attitude. By night I play guitar & celtic bouzouki, board games, and watch British TV. I love abstracts, co-ops, worker placement and tile-laying games. Basically, any deep game with lots of interesting choices. 

You can find my middle grade book, The Pterrible Pteranodon, at your favorite online bookstore.

And despite being a DM, I have an inherent dislike of six-sided dice.
