A Seasonal Guide to Offerings in Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley offers a rural respite full of farming, fishing, and foraging. One of the game’s key components is the collection of items for various offerings, especially when aiming for 100% completion. In this guide, we’ll go season by season to outline what you should be collecting, so you don’t miss out.

Spring: The Season of Renewal

spring Forageables

Forageables

  • Wild Horseradish
  • Daffodil
  • Leek
  • Dandelion

These forageable items are easily found during your strolls in the Valley. If you happen to miss any, don’t worry; they can also be grown in the greenhouse with spring seeds.

Morel Mushroom

Although not a required item for offerings, the Morel Mushroom is often overlooked. You can find it either in the Secret Woods during spring or in a Mushroom Cave, should you choose that cave type for your farm.

Spring Crops

  • Parsnip
  • Green Bean
  • Cauliflower
  • Potato

If you’ve overlooked the offerings, you might miss these. If that happens, try your luck with the Traveling Cart, which stocks most offering items, albeit unpredictably.

Five Gold-Star Parsnips

Gold-Star Parsnips are optional but could save you time in other seasons. Spring is busy, and it’s often more efficient to focus on other items.

Fishing

No fish exclusive to Spring are required for offerings. However, keep a low-quality fish if it’s needed for future offerings.

Summer: The Season of Heat

Forageables

  • Grape
  • Sweet Pea
  • Spice Berry

Summer Crops

  • Tomato
  • Hot Pepper
  • Blueberry
  • Melon
  • Poppy

These are the must-plant crops of the summer.

  • Sunflower, Corn, and Wheat can also be grown in summer, with Corn and Melon requiring gold-star quality. Use fertilizer to aid in this.

Fruit Trees: Apple and Pomegranate

You’ll harvest these in Fall, but planting needs to happen in Summer. They’re often overlooked but are essential for offerings.

Summer Fishing

  • Sunfish (if not caught in Spring)
  • Sturgeon
  • Tuna
  • Pufferfish

If you miss any, some can be caught in Winter, but that will delay the completion of your Fish Tank offerings.

Fern

Fern

This item is often missed and can be found in the Secret Woods during Summer or in the Skull Cavern.

Fall: The Season of Harvest

Forageables

  • Common Mushroom
  • Wild Plum
  • Hazelnut
  • Blackberry

Fall Crops

  • Eggplant
  • Pumpkin
  • Yam

Fishing in Fall

Fall is less hectic, so it’s a good time to complete your Fish Tank offerings if you missed any from the previous seasons.

Winter: The Season of Rest

Forageables

  • Winter Root
  • Crystal Fruit
  • Snow Yam
  • Crocus

You’ll need to use a hoe on the ground for Winter Root and Snow Yam; they can’t be picked up directly.

Nautilus Shell

This beach forageable is pretty common during Winter and should be easy to find.

Year-Round Offerings

Note: Keep in mind the preparation needed for animal products.

Building a Coop and a Barn takes roughly a month from start to finish, so plan ahead. Additionally, pigs don’t produce in Winter, so either raise them early or wait until the snow melts.

Conclusion

Collecting all the items for offerings in Stardew Valley can seem daunting, but with this seasonal guide, you should be well-equipped to not miss a thing.

Whether you’re a newcomer or a veteran, keeping track of seasonal items will enhance your Stardew Valley experience and help you get the most out of the game.
